    1. Having just written a lengthy review for The Infection that my computer/ conspired to lose after I hit the save button, I'm full of enough rage to bite the next healthy person I come across. Which, of course, means I can't possibly bring myself to try to reconstruct what was obviously a brilliantly composed, thought-provoking exploration of DiLouie's novel.Instead, I'll just dot point the hell out of it:- Very different from your normal zombie apocalyptic novel. Which is a good thing.- Adding mo [...]

    2. Wow, this one was a mess. Although the writing is okay and the authors words flow smoothy, this novel is chopped up and all over the place. It couldn't decide what it wanted to be. An apocalyptic disaster (the screamers), a post-apocalyptic disaster (screamers turned zombies), a monster/horror disaster (massive worms, grissly baboons, spider-like demons), a dystopian society disaster (caught within the confines of a city/prison/camp thought to be a haven) or a dramatic disaster (personal flashba [...]

    3. Even better than World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie WarI had to admit I was a little suspicious of this book. It comes from an indie press, with a cover that looks like it was designed by a very talented amateur instead of a seasoned professional.But I was hooked within sentences. DiLouie has managed to take a tired genre (sorry, but I'm getting a little bored of the zombie apocalypse) and imbue it with exciting new vitality. He does this in precisely the right way: he focuses on the cha [...]

    4. 2 StarsAs a confessed post-apoc-a-phile with love for all things undead, I am normally easy to please.I felt that the overall feel of this novel was forced upon us, it tried to be an atypical zombie novel, to be different and unique, and to not be generic. The beginning of the book was fantastic. I loved the whole people fell down, screamed really loudly.d then they changed concept. It was well written, engaging, and exciting. Problem is after that the book fell apart. Even with fast moving zomb [...]

    5. While I am not a big fan of Craig DiLouie's writing "style", he can tell one hell of a story. Infection has a similar feel to Tooth and Nail, but is a different story set in a different book universe. Others have detailed and recapped the story, so I won't, but I have a few comments. The bonded together survivors from the Bradley work well as a unit, and as a newfound family. I was sorry to see that certain of them didn't make it. Let's face it, at this point, there's only so much you can do wit [...]

    6. I picked this up after reading "World War Z," expecting something similar, and was sorely disappointed. Even though I did not enjoy the writing style at all, I gave it the benefit of the doubt until about a third of the way through. It was all over at the two-headed worm. Don't bother.

    7. When I got the book I picked it up right before I had to go out, I remember standing in the kitchen reading the prologue next thing I knew I was pacing back and forth while reading. All I thought was damn this book is freaking awesome! The prologue gives you this uneasy oh crap how much worse will it get feel.Many zombie books are hopeful and uplifting. The survivors are the light in the darkness and yes that’s true here. The story is usually a hard and difficult journey for them and this also [...]

    8. Since I consider this one of my "Best Of 2012" I finally finished my review. It scared the pants off me at least five times so it deserves at the very least five stars!Everyone who enjoys post-apocalyptic fiction should read this book. This is not so much a "zombie fiction" at least in the traditional idea of what we think of when we see zombie in the genre setting. Sure, it has a shuffling, running, cannibalistic, primal, carnivorous flesh-eating horde hungering after any and all humans left in [...]

    9. Firstly, I should say that you really need to experience this book in audio format. As I listened, I sometimes imagined the print on the page and thought that reading it would not have been as exciting. Although I'm a big fan of Apocalyptic novels I'm not really a zombie fan, even though the two genres often go hand-in-hand. Not to worry here though. If you enjoy apocalyptic, post-apocalyptic, horror, thriller, action, zombies or any combination you will love this. Especially on audio. One teeny [...]

    10. I didn't want to do this, but honestly I couldn't finish this. I love Craig DiLouie's work. I think he is a fantastic author. I just couldn't get into this. I felt disconnected from the characters, the story did not flow and was choppy, in addition I thought the worm thing was way over the top and kinda silly. The direction of the story seemed to be all over the place and I found myself slowly slipping away from the story. I feel horrible for giving up on this, but I just had to put it down and [...]

    11. Again, I have not an inkling why so many people rate books that are horrible so high. This book at the most is a 3 and nothing more. The things I hate about this book:1. My main problem is the there isn’t a clue to why the infection is creating these so called abominations. Is this some kind of alien invasion or is there really an infection? O and about to the very end of the book, you realize that some of these alien creatures have the ability to communicate (the speak some kind of language). [...]

    12. Let me start out by saying, Craig DiLouie's The Infection is not a zombie book. The creatures that the survivors in this tale encounter are not dead (unless I totally missed the dying part and if I did someone please set me straight and my apologies to, Mr DiLouie) The majority of the world's population became infected, went into coma's for 3 days and when they woke up they were vicious man eating abominations. But don't let that little piece of information take you away from considering this ge [...]

    13. I am on a zombie/spaceship/wasteland binge right now and this is in the top 10%.DiLouie has a very nice scenario which succeeds in not only suspending your disbelief but also feeding the fantasy of "what would I do if this happened to me?" The characters are distinct and he does a good job of speaking in their unique voice. In doing so he gets to explore some existential questions without slowing the pace of the story. The story goes from good to very good when you find out there is more to it t [...]

    14. This is the second of DiLouie's zombie novels that I've read and I have to say I'm coming away really impressed. Both The Infection and the other novel, Tooth and Nail, are good reads with plenty of action and character development, but I liked The Infection somewhat better as he adds a deeper story than just the usual survival dramaTE: The Infection and Tooth and Nail take place in different universes and are completely unrelated works. One does hope we see a sequel to Infection though, at some [...]

    15. I was really disappointed by this and I don't understand the 4 or 5 star reviews at all. There's no doubt that the author can write, the flashbacks were particularly well told, but the choppiness of the story, the present tense narration, oh and then the monsterst my cup of tea at all! I wanted to give up at 15% but kept going because I always like to get 25% through a book to give it a fair chance of drawing me in as some great novels can be slow starters. So at around a quarter of the way thro [...]

    16. If you like reading books about zombie apocalypse like Day by Day Armageddon by J.L. Bourne, and then I would highly recommend you to read this book. If you have ever played the game Left for Dead two, the book line is almost identical. You have around five to six people trying to make their way through a massive city trying to survive. A toxic virus have engulfed and infected the whole city in which anyone that has been infected has been turned into "zombie like creatures." His or her main pur [...]

    17. If you take it for a zombie apocalypse book, it is entertaining. The writing style is a little dry and you adopt a "meh" attitude toward the characters (the author gives you backstory of the characters, but you neither feel here or there towards them). With that said, if you take it for a zombie apocalypse tale, you get what you want: survivors from different backgrounds banding together; doomsday prepper survivalists; the good, the bad and the ugly; small/large battles against infected; the pos [...]

    18. 3.75 Started out as a 4.5 but in last 20% went down to 3.75Totally blown away by Tooth And Nail !!!Loved the majority of this novel and learning about the individual characters backgrounds and turmoils throughout their journey. However *** Possible Spoiler *** I started out enjoying this just as much as Tooth And Nail but the last 15-20% it just lost it a bit for me. I just found it hard to take the zombie/alien take that's all as I wasn't expecting it and it didn't really explain where any of i [...]

    19. I enjoyed this book for what it was worth. The book had a lot of good ideas. I just think the book just needed a bit more focus. Some parts of this book feels too rushed toward the next idea. The story features zombies that mutate into giant lovecraftian creatures. (Kind of like the movie and Stephen King story The Mist.) This book could be turned into a best selling video game because the set up is so good. I give this book a 4.5 because I really like the concept of the book. It is my ideal pos [...]

    20. Better than Tooth & Nail, but there was way too much unbelievable stuff in this story. I loved the characters, but I spent most of my time feeling incredulous about what was happening.

    23. Good solid post-apocalyptic book. Characters were way better drawn than most and the action was good.

    25. The Infection starts out with a brief prologue that introduces the reader to the Screaming that initiates the apocalypse. About 20% of the population starts to scream uncontrollably and then collapse, going into a coma that lasts three days. At the end of that three days, those people who fell down wake up, and their only desire is to spread the infection to everyone else by biting and attacking them. The reader is thrust into the story a few weeks after the initial assault and we are introduced [...]

    27. A very different book, which is something in a genre filled with cliches. I don't know if this even falls into a zombie classification entirely. It's far more Lovecraftian -- to the point where I personally would have given up very early if I survived the first wave.The author puts a spin on the usual zombie origin tale, and I always like when authors do this, so I'm not sure why more don't stray from the standard "get bit or scratched, in a few hours, turn, and become slow zombie"--sometimes yo [...]

    28. I just finished Craig DiLouie's The Infection and my head is still spinning. With the sheer volume of zombie and other post-apocalyptic novels on the market, it takes a lot to really get my attention, and The Infection had me at the very first chapter.The basic premise is this: a strange pandemic strikes the globe, causing roughly 4 of every 5 people to collapse screaming, where they'll lay comatose for days. When they awaken, the Infected proceed to attack and infect everyone they come in conta [...]

    29. Well, I finished it. Barely.I didn't care for any of our survivors, and if I'm being completely honest, I felt detached and kind of bored the whole way through even with the constant action thrown at me. It's a shame, because Suffer the Children was one of my favorite books of last year and I was expecting that kind of impact from this story, too, but it never even came close to engaging me.The Infection itself was an okay spin on the usual walking dead stuff, and near the end we got a glimpse o [...]

    30. There were parts of this story that I absolutely loved and parts that I thought were a bit corny.First the good: I really love the descriptions of the infected. There were times that I felt I was standing there looking them in the face. I also loved that this isn't a typical shambling dead novel. The infected aren't mindless, they are part of a brood. They don't bite to kill and eat, they bite to infect and make the brood stronger. I also loved that the infected mutate into other monsters, some [...]
