I'd recommend this book to anyone willing to read it with an open mind Cleek, it would be worth it to invest in an editor to give your story a once over and smooth out the rough spots. Nevertheless, I applaud you for writing and publishing a book. I know it it takes a lot of time, sacrifice and family support to be an author.
Looking forward to the next installment and wishing you success. Nov 17, Geoff rated it really liked it. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Great characters, and great action. The ONLY drawback is the author's tendency to over-describe some things.
Mar 13, Robert Brown rated it it was amazing. Intense and Awesome! One of the best apocalyptic books I have read in a long time. I highly recommend it to everyone and more are the way. Caleb is a great writer and makes you feel like your right there with the characters. Jan 08, Kate rated it really liked it. I would have given this 5 stars but it ends in the middle of the action. Is this a book 1 in a series? It doesn't say it is anywhere-which I cannot stand. If you are doing a series-let us know. Or write an ending. Feb 24, Lisa rated it really liked it.
Quite a well done apocalyptic horror novel. The characters were well done overall. Not too much exposition. Instead, we get to discover them as personalities along the way. It did have quite a number of typical conventions, but they weren't overly annoying here. It's an interesting twist on the pandemic apocalypse. It really focused in on human behavior and psychology in relation to how the characters reacted. It was nice that there were some strong female characters here as well.
While there wa Quite a well done apocalyptic horror novel. While there was still some damsel in distress going on, they could stand on their own as well. It does end on a bit of a cliffhanger, which I dislike, but I've got the next book, so I'll just start reading that one now. Worthwhile if you like this type of story. Apr 18, Ebony Irby rated it it was ok Shelves: book-was-just-ok , audible , didn-t-finish , zombie. This book was just OK.
I was excited to start reading it, but it missed the mark for me. Now, this was not a terrible book. I just think it fits best for someone who's new to the zombie genre. I have read so many zombie novels that I need more than neck biting, and chasing to get a thrill. I would recommend this to someone who's new to this world, have little experience with zombies ;. Not too much gore.
If you like zombies, family, guns, and cops, read this book. Caleb is awesome and tall. Jun 22, David Foster rated it really liked it. This zombie book puts a slight twist on how the zombies became what they are, and how the outbreak got started. Although the author's attempt to scientifically justify how citizens become zombies kind of falls apart as he goes into detail, and the way the main character is spoon-fed awareness of what the situation is and why it is happening are kind of annoying, the rest of the story is a well-written tale of adventure and survival.
It's not breaking a lot of new ground but it's fulfilling it's This zombie book puts a slight twist on how the zombies became what they are, and how the outbreak got started. It's not breaking a lot of new ground but it's fulfilling it's purpose - keeping the reader entertained. One thing I enjoyed was having a main character who, while he was definitely familiar with firearms, wasn't a super-soldier ready to mow down hordes of zombies on his own. The fact that he gets caught by surprise or that some of his plans don't work out is a breath of fresh air.
There isn't really an ending, but there is definitely the set-up for book two. I'll look forward to it when it comes out. Jan 22, Kimberly rated it really liked it. The action starts nearly immediately and continues throughout the book right to the end. I enjoyed the characters as well as the storyline. Generally the entire scenario comes across as a plausible pandemic situation. The book ends with a cliff-hanger. Always bad form, in my opinion. Also the author frequently inserts entire pages that read like a how-to manual detailing out some mundane task. No apparent reason.
Lastly, fans of The Walking Dead will likely be tempted to see the main family as s The action starts nearly immediately and continues throughout the book right to the end. Both main characters are deputies and best friends like Rick and Shane , and I even found a Hershel along the way. I still enjoyed the book all the same, but I did eventually find it challenging to keep from visualizing the father and son as Rick and Carl. That said, really enjoyed the read and looking forward to the continuation of the story.
May 01, Rhonda rated it really liked it Shelves: horror , zombie , drama-drama-drama , scyfy , science-fiction. A good zombie story told by a police officer, starting from the beginning of the infection. He tells about his family and town, and he still wants to be a good cop even as the world is falling apart around him. The zombies in this book are the ones I would be most scared of--they are fast, strong and smart. They have reasoning skills in hunting humans, and have flanks coming in from the back while the ones in front are distracting their dinner.
If a zombie apocalypse ever happens--I would rather d A good zombie story told by a police officer, starting from the beginning of the infection. If a zombie apocalypse ever happens--I would rather deal with the slow, the stupid and the weak brain eaters, otherwise I will be one of the first to die. This was a good story, and I'm looking forward to the next one. Hopefully, it will be soon. Dec 29, Camille rated it really liked it Shelves: kindle , zombies , , fave-zombie-books. It was unnecessarily detailed but I was able to adjust and get engrossed in the story.
I like how it explained how the zombies were made and operated. Although one thing makes no sense: how are they able to plan an ambush but not turn a door knob. It seems like they could either do both or neither. Feb 19, Joan E Holman rated it it was amazing.
So very well-written I have been reading books in this genre since I don't know when and the author has taken a different approach with very insightful scenarios. I can say that it was an awesome read and hard to put down. I am a fan of many of the new authors on Amazon and Caleb is in the top ofive.
Looking forward to the next installment. Jan 01, Jessica Kong rated it it was amazing Shelves: horror-thriller , read-and-reviewed. Infected: The Fall by Caleb Cleek is an interesting read about a small town deputy sheriff trying to keep the town's population and his family alive during the zombie apocalypse. He learns the virus was made in China and was purposely set lose upon America. Story is full of action and excitement. I look forward to book 2. Jul 08, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: apocalypse-zombie.
I really liked it and it kept me interested. Lots of suspense and edge-of-your-seat moments, the characters are spot on especially Conner. The downside is that it took me a little while to get into it because of all the detail and unnecessary detailing of things that would be better left out, so I just skimmed thru those pages.
Good read overall tho. Mar 17, Virginia Night rated it really liked it.
‘We Are All Infected’ The Derridian Imaginary of the Human Event in The Walking Dead
Well written This is seemingly, the first book this author has written. The world building and rationale were excellent and believable. There was a high degree of character development. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
Medical Microbiology. 4th edition.
Feb 11, Kelly rated it it was amazing. Good read! I enjoyed reading Infected: The Fall. Books like this make you realize how quickly things could go wrong, and how vulnerable we all really are! Mar 04, Brenda Mallard rated it really liked it. Awesome read! For the most part this book made you feel as though you were in the midst of the horror that faced the survivors of a relentless virus.
Jul 19, Angela Knapchuck rated it it was amazing. But after the first few chapters May 18, Trish Franks rated it it was amazing. Fabulous When I start any book I am skeptical that it will grab me. This one did from start to finish, and now I can't wait to get my hands on the next book!! Loved it!!! Jul 01, Melanie rated it liked it. It was ok, but I doubt I'll read anymore in the series.
