I finished "Infected" last night...book 2 of 100, and I'm not sure if I liked it. It was an interesting story, with some gore factor...but it seemed to really pull for the "sci-fi" aspect the closer and closer you got to the end.
The parasites (which are named "Triangles" at some point in the book) turned out to be somewhat intelligent. The could speak to their hosts, and convince them to do things they wouldn't normally do..I guess hence making them "crazy" The last 20 pages or so drove me nuts...it was all about an offensive movement by the army to eradicate the parasites, that had all burst out of their hosts bodies, and were going to Wahjamega where the is an arch that is drawing the hosts and parasites to it. Yeah ok...
Now...I don't know if there really is a place called Wahjamega...but it doesn't sound very exciting..I mean really...why there??! That is just one of the many questions this book left me with...which will probably be answered in the sequel "Contagious", which unfortunately I also own.
All in all the book is a good story...just not my thing. Although...the things Perry Dawsey (one of the main characters) does to himself to try and kill the "Triangles" that are living in his body are quite amusing. For instance...he cuts himself repeatedly, sits his bare butt on a hot burner (one of the triangles were on his butt cheek) and last but not least...castrates himself with a pair of chicken shears (I think you can figure out where another "Triangle" was).
So now I am on to book 3...I am going to read "The Wall". Which is a true account of a family that suffered from a haunting in their home. This is more my type of book, I LOVE reading paranormal books, watching paranormal movies, tv shows etc. (I think you get the idea). This book isn't very long, so I am hoping to have it done by tomorrow or Saturday.
