    1. There are so many things that are right with this book, it s almost strange to give it less than rave review But here it is And here s why Hornsby is a talented writer, there is no denying that, strong and competent narrative with realistic dialogues and a clever, but inordinately overused knack for referring to the dead as past tense And apocalyptic scenarios are ever so much fun Yet somehow reading this book felt like work, it might have been the longest 318 page book I ve read in ages and I r [...]

    2. This book should have been a quick, enjoyable read, but it ended up feeling like work Hornsby takes an interesting horror concept and fills it with overwritten prose that bogs down the narrative To be fair, I should sprinkle my review with examples such as mendacious hazel eyes and ice that crinkles and collapes into the melted abyss But in reality, I was probably not predisposed to like this horror novel I enjoy a good tale of terror as much as the next reader, but I also appreciate a well writ [...]

    5. An American teaching English in China returns home with his girl friend to attend his fathers funeral His career in on the downward slide to failure and disappointment, his girlfriend is pushing for marrage his mother is a sad alcoholic still grieving over being abandoned by her now deceased husband for a younger woman A small town like any other, where it s sleepy days seem set in the comfort of the unchanging habits of small town life Then at the funeral for his father, the family and friends [...]

    6. The story idea was great The execution of the plot was good The book was dragged down by the heavy writing The scene descriptions, internal monologs and character dialogs are all written so heavy I would not expect people to have art house philosophical discussions immediately after a horrific event Some people will enjoy the writing style with literary, social and musical name drops Some will like the conspiracy horror aspects of the story Others will not like the book Give the first few chapte [...]

    7. Excellent, well written story that follows a young man named Layne Prescott through the most harrowing, traumatic experience of his life After returning home from China, where he teaches English as a second language,for his father s funeral he must survive weeks of a mystery illness that is causing him and his loved ones to temporarily go insane and try to kill each other and themselves Once he and his friends realize that they have been completely cut off from the outside world they realize tha [...]

    8. I wish I could give half stars because I liked a lot about this book but there were some parts that just didn t work Some parts of the ending explanation didn t make sense or weren t explained so that they worked with what happened before not wanting to spoil for anyone else so I won t explain It was an interesting idea and it kept me reading so 2 1 2 stars would be fitting.

    9. Really liked it, but hate the fact that the five sentences of German in the book were not correct It s not so hard to find a German native speaker to help you translate at least those five sentences

    10. En route to his tiny Florida hometown for his father s funeral, English teacher Layne Prescott is approached by a stranger with a briefcase attached to his arm After a brief and cryptic encounter, Layne continues his journey only to find that the briefcase is in his luggage when he arrives home Things get even stranger when for no apparent reason the mourners at his father s funeral go crazy and start viciously attacking each other From that point on, another outbreak occurs every 12 hours at pr [...]

    11. Huh.This is a long book and it is not a quick read And it is very strange Very quirky Kind of interesting I wish I was well versed in Chinese culture and demonology That may have helped The look into the dark and gritty part of China is well written, the characters are bizarre but mostly compelling And the storyline bounces all over the place I d like to sit down and have the author or someone else explain it all to me because I feel like I m really missing something here some ah ha moment whic [...]

    12. I do this thing where I download tons of free e books, then, by the time I get around to reading them, I have no idea what the premise of the story is So after getting a bit into the story, I still had no idea what was going on, but it was intriguing enough to keep me going And once the action started, I really wanted to keep reading to figure out what exactly was going on with this conspiracy The ending left me feeling kind of blase I wasn t really dissatisfied, but I think there were things I [...]

    13. I don t know that there s much that I liked about this book The characters all seemed to be different shades of the same one and not one of them was remotely likeable There were whole sections that seemed to be nothing but filler I kept waiting for something to happen but it never quite did.

    14. This book started out strong, and is highly addictive I would have given this book a 5 star rating except the last 2 or 3 chapters felt less genuine, rushed and tacked on Otherwise this was a great story

    15. Great book I picked this up for free several months ago, and I m really glad I did sure, there are minor things one could gripe about, but getting to read about a bunch of hipsters literally being torn limb from limb makes it all worth it

    16. This is a chaotic and convoluted book with a theme that is paranoid at best It is the be all and end all of conspiracy theory based novels that is not very well written and leaves the reader what will happen next.

    17. Book was good Kept me wanting to read it Gave it 3 stars because the ending was lacking lots Not sure what happened and left me asking TONS of questions Too many holes left in the end.
