Professional woman, reading constantly
I am having a love/hate relationship with this book. I hated it's descriptive, disgusting nature but also found it to be a page burner.........so go figure.
Giving it 4 stars on the notion that the folks that are reading this review ALREADY like really creepy books, and I would definitely recommend it. However, if by chance, you get an upset stomach or a bit queasy when reading bloody and gorey stories, close this book and move on to another, more light hearted story. This one will definitely gross you out. Just when I thought I'd seen it all, up pops the weirdest and nastiest of all body-snatchers and Ziegler has spared nothing with his description.
The only thing that bothered me with this book was the voice used for Margaret.......bothersome, too fast and it just didn't do the character justice. Hope that changes in future books.
I thought it was it nice to hear the author narrate the whole book with characters.
one problem I had was the sound in-between chapters. After a while it just became annoying...every chapter, or every change of scenes...Boinnggggg
Anyone else!! This narrator sounds very inexperienced. He is sing songy, all his sentences ending with a down lilt. The voice of Margaret is the worst hispanic accent I've ever heard Even the southern accent of Dew makes him sound goofy instead of smooth & dangerous.
I am finding their voices distracting from the story. Scott Sigler is an awesome writer, but a narrator he is not!
Hi my name is Marty, Im book worm from Portland Oregon. I work graveyard shifts and listen to books while I work and read comics in the day
You know an author is good when he can make some thing happen to his character and you feel their pain.
This book is Amazing.
I'll admit, I have a man crush on Sigler now.
Robin Cook meets Stephen King. Creepy, freaky and totally enthralling. I couldn't put this one down.
What ARE those little triangles?
Not what I expected but not bad. I don't really like stories about aliens so I was a little disappointed when this one turned out to be just that, but the characters were so interesting that they made up for it. I don't think I will care to listen to the next on, maybe, maybe not, but this one wasn't bad at all.
I would consider the Audio better because Scott imparts an amazing feeling to his characters.
NONE. Scott has a true original here the premise and the attention to detail are great.
I can not say because it would be a spoiler and I can not ruin it for listeners.
YOU GOT TO HAVE DISCIPLINE.
I have read and listened to allot of books and This was not one on my radar at first. I was able to get the podiobook version of this and had listened o it because it was free. I have listened to the podio version roughly 15 times and was compelled to buy the book to give this author his due. This is a great story it start a bit slow but about and hour in I was dying to hear what was next listen in the car, on breaks, in stead of watching television, hell I blocked out my wife to listen to every moment of the book.The voice work the imagery everything works so well listen to this then great Book II Contagious. Best purchase you can make. If you into hardcore horror, mystery and a bit of the old ultra-violence get this book now.
Great book great narrater great everything. Very graphic. I enjoy the no holds bar this book details. this is what i would expect a psychotic, paranoid, delusional monster of man would do if an alien perisite took over his body. But it is not all blood and violence this book has great humor in it. There is a second book named contagious and a third on the way. I do hope audible picks this book up as well casue i can't wait to listen to it.
The story is really well done. The only thing about it that I did not enjoy was some of the graphic violence, but the nice thing about the audio is that it takes seconds to skip it.
Some folks have complained about the narration. The author is no Jim Dale (Harry Potter) narrator, but he is pretty good, and believe me I have heard way worse. It only took me a chapter to get drawn into the story and then I did not notice his narrator voice anymore. The sample listen give a good sample of the authors voice and style, so unless you are super picky and just can't stand anything but perfection from your narrator, it is a good pick.
Sigler is odd to say the least, but I find his books very entertaining. They are a bit gory, but very entertaining.
