  1. hear me This is Harry Lo of KNBR, the Bay Area s real rock, broadcasting live because I have nothing else to do and no other way of getting the message that I m still alive in here out to the world I have now been broadcasting for twenty days straight It s almost Halloween, kids, and if anyone s out there listening, I recommend against going trick or treating this year, because the streets are alive with the actual undead, which may make it hard to tell the kids in costumes from the people who w [...]

  2. Yep I gave a Mira Grant book 2 stars.It pains me to do so, it really does, but this series, in general, has not impressed me at all Parasite Symbiont was intended originally to be a duology but it has now transformed into a trilogy with Symbiont becoming nothing than a seriously massive tome of filler It was a huge undertaking to get through this a total of 23 days which is fairly unheard of for me but there s no denying that it definitely lacked direction.By now we ve had our fair share of rom [...]

  4. What s that I actually finished a book I know I was surprised too Twas a good book too Not as good as Parasite, but a solid sequel I m still on board for book three, coming at my reading list in 2018

  5. November can t come soon enough Edit OH MY GOD THIS IS OUT AND I FORGOTas lkfjas ldkfjal sdkjf alskd Love, love, love Will write a proper review later 3

  6. The Symbiont Drinking GameOne shot whenever Sal faints, passes out, or is tranquilized.Two shots whenever Sal descends into the hot warm dark.Read this way it can be five stars and a blessed brake from holiday mayhem.The best thing about this book is its irreverence There s a character who is fully convinced that he is living a video game because that makes sense than a parasitic zombie apocalypse In the book he s nuts but as a reader you laugh because it almost does make sense Then there s Na [...]

  7. Usually when a duology becomes a trilogy or a trilogy becomes a lengthy series overnight, I grumble and complain and become instantly resentful of both the author and the publisher But when I discovered that this duology somehow grew to become a trilogy, I felt nothing but satisfaction and joy More books from Mira Grant are always good news to me In fact, if Parasitology suddenly became a 180 books long medical thriller soap opera hybrid, I d still be a happy camper That s how much I admire thi [...]

  8. I m going to go out on a limb here, but I really didn t love this I m a huge fan of Seanan s work normally, but this one felt over long and drawn out with just too much standing around in rooms vacillating about what to do next when only the bad guys seem to have a plan.The first one was alright, although the big reveal was completely obvious to everyone but the main character, who even reflects in this book that retrospectively even she thought it was obvious This next one has Sal and Nathan wi [...]

  9. 3.5 stars Not quite as good as the first one but a solid middle book Lots of character development in his one Not a whole lot of action until the end and then it s a pretty big cliffhanger.

  10. This review appears on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews Only Mira Grant could write a series about tapeworm horror, and make it compelling, intelligent, well thought out and absolutely terrifying.The Parasitology series explores a world dominated by science, where people rely on tapeworm implants for perfect health and longevity While Parasite explored how this technology was invented and how it was adopted across the globe, Symbiont explores the detrimental and disastrous effects of t [...]

  11. If you have not yet read Parasite I suggest you swallow the red pill and slip down the rabbit hole that is Grant s brilliant mind and join the rest of us in this frighteningly real apocalyptic future.This is your last chance After this, there is no turning back You take the blue pill the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe You take the red pill you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes Morpheus, The Matrix, 1999Grant allows us to [...]

  12. I m not sure how to process this story it s my worst nightmare, and yet in a sense I have to root for that Alright, so before I dig in to the meat of this book I have to warn you that part of what I m going to say will be about things that were revealed in Parasite, the first book in this series If you haven t read that book, don t read further I seriously do not know where I stand on this book Mira Grant is so good at development It s not so much that I believe that this world could really happ [...]

  13. I didn t love it as much as the first one Maybe 3.5 stars I think Mira Grant could write a traffic ticket and I d read it D I ve been anxiously waiting for this book since I finished reading book one, Parasite , in October of 2013 I was delighted when it was announced several moths ago that instead of two books, Grant will write three in this series Frankly, I doubt she could have wrapped this up in two books And these books are not short Parasite was 512 pages and Symbiont is 516 pages With plo [...]

  14. This is the second book in the Parasitology series by Grant this was originally going to be a duology and was extended into a trilogy The third book, Chimera, is set to release late 2015 This was hands down my least favorite book Mira Grant or Seanan McGuire her other pen name has written I am a huge fan of all of Mira Grant s Seanan McGuire s other books For some reason though this series is just missing the mark for me.Sal is coming to terms with the fact that she is no longer human Her human [...]

  15. 2.5 stars enjoyable, but quite a few things could have been avoided or handled differently Also, not a fan of characters fainting often, or getting in kidnapping situations once too many But I think part of this can be chalked up to second book syndrome.

  16. I love that the first couple lines of the synopsis are all shouty caps about how terrifying Mira s books are, hah.

  17. I didn t think the book was perfect, but it was entertaining and I m quite looking forward to the next one.

  18. I had some problems with the first installment Parasite , but it was fairly entertaining for all that This one was just silly.

  19. 2.5 starsOn the one hand, I really enjoyed Symbiont On the other, though, it did disappoint me After loving Parasite on my reread, I find myself back here, once again disappointed in Parasitology Newsflesh is pure perfection, and this series is not managing to achieve that magic again Symbiont is clunky and second book syndrome all the way.For one thing, not much that s plot essential really happens in Symbiont The whole book is plotting fail level video game, where Sal is always either on a mis [...]

  20. At first I thought this book had an especially bad case of middle book treading water syndrome, and then I learned from other reviews and it seems to be confirmed in press releases from Orbit when the first book was announced that this wasn t even supposed to be a trilogy in the first place And all I can say is that if you look at a duology and think, What this really needs is an extra 500 pages of absolutely nothing happening so we can sell copies, then you really deserve nothing than some hi [...]

  21. It pains me to say this, because I have devoured Mira Grant s work at an alarming pace with every piece I ve picked up, but I found Symbiont clunky and uninspiring I find it hard to put my finger on everything I was not happy about, but among my issues Sal is truly developmentally broken Beyond the obvious intent of the character, she quite frequently takes two steps forward in one scene, then anywhere from 1 5 steps back in another scene I found this immensely frustrating and exhausting to read [...]

  22. Very repetitive Tells us the same things over and over If it mentions something once, it mentions that same thing again and again Did I mention this book is very repetitive

  23. After reading Do you see the edit below that I made back when I first read Parasite Read my review maybe review show and was waiting eagerly to read the then last one It s a trilogy now sigh I think I m gonna have to copy paste the whole thing since this shit is still stuck on yet another freaking cliffhanger Arrrggghhh Also, that awkward moment when you realize that even a tapeworm has a boyfriend but you don t.This sad pathetic forever alone life.Moving on to the actual review now.This is the [...]

  24. I read Parasitology last year and loved it, loved the science and the amazing premise of the different kind of zombies and the starting of the apocalypse.After the ending and revelations I was really looking forward to reading Symbiont, the sequel and I m very happy to report that it didn t disappoint at all Symbiont started with Sal dealing with the revelations of Parasitology and even if Sal keeps having her doubts and is somewhat paralized, she does a pretty good job at figuring out what real [...]

  25. 3 Stars Parasite book one of the Parisitology series by Mira Grant was a mixed bag of post apocalyptic fun Symbiont, book two of the trilogy that was supposed to be a duology is a little of the same and a whole lot of nothing.Mira Grant is one of my favorite authors today and it is funny how it worked out You see, I pretty much hated Feed, book one in the Newsflesh series, that is until I decided to read it for a second time months later Upon my reread and my dissection of the writing style of [...]

  26. Tansy s story is shocking and heart breaking Her viewpoints are probably the most powerful parts of this story, even if they are limited The world Sal now lives in is starting to become very cruel indeed and there s some hard to swallow scenes Fishy, new to the scene, is delusional, refusing to accept the apocalypse is really happening and he thinks he s just inside a video game In some of the final chapters, this becomes endearing and also made me chuckle in the face of imminent doom.Without gi [...]

  27. This review was originally posted on One Curvy BloggerI received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Y all know I have been a huge fan of Mira Grant ever since I devoured the Newsflesh trilogy So when the opportunity came to read and review Symbiont, I was so excited I quickly snapped up the chance and boy am I glad Just when I think Mira Grant can t get any creepier, she proves me wrong in all [...]

  28. Despite really not loving Parasite, the first book of this series, I was cautiously excited about Symbiont Parasite hung on a plot point that was obvious to me within the first couple pages and then spent the entire novel bringing it s heroine to a realization of what I d known from the very beginning But, with that realization finally out of the way, I was hopeful that Symbiont could actually move things forward and into unknown territory.Symbiont pays off, I m glad to say It s a far enjoyabl [...]
