    A superb debut from Andy Strutt An exciting fast paced novel convincing in it's technical details of genetics and the potential repercussions Strutt is clearly very knowledgeable on the subject and integrates the complicated science into the plot extremely well and without alienating the uninitiated

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review At first I found all of the scientific jargon a bit much to get my head around but once I got past that I found it an absorbing read It's a scary thought that something like this actually happening isn't so far fetched

    What happens when a genetic disease gets loose and turns people into modern day vampires? The Afflicted takes a look at Dr John Simmons's genetic breakthrough a cure for aging and other genetic diseases as the breakthrough is perverted and sabotaged by Richard Jennings Dr Simmons and Dr Gwen Taylor are the hero's of this modern day genetic take on a vampire disease outbreakThe book itself is a good read easy to read lots of good explanations It's a little dry at first as it gets the science part done but then the action picks up The ending is a little dues ex machine but the depiction of the disease outbreak is smartspot on This book has a good depiction of what would happen in a real disease outbreak of this magnitudeI got this book through GoodRead's Giveaways an excellent source of interesting books

    I found The Afflicted by Andy Strutt to be a very interesting story First it gave you great hope for that miracle drug that cures many ailments then it showed you how big business people with power who don't want this miracle for all people but keep it for themselves ruin it and turn it into something of great evil There was a lot of violence which was needed to get the idea of the book across but it was also full of great drama romance revengeCongrats on a great story
