  1. i m calling it now this is the year of the tapewormriously, TWO tapeworm novels in just a matter of months i am on a roll, boy howdyd as cool as tapewormy horror novels are, i was going to read this no matter what it was about, because i love mira granteg got to this before i did, even though my desire for it was so great, so while he was reading it, i kept grilling him for feedback, and he was having a sort of tepid response to it and when i finally started it myself, at first i was puzzled and [...]

  2. The trouble with writing believable science fiction in a contemporary or near future setting is that the reader has to willingly suspend a great deal of disbelief It s a familiar setting, so chances are not a lot of things have changed by then, scientific progress is advancing, things are evolving, but the book s setting and plot should be believable enough for the reader to think holy shit, this could actually happen This book was well written from a fictional point of view, but for anyone with [...]

  3. I WILL TAKE THE PILL, MIRA.I wished the title PARASITOLOGY had stuck, though We re big girls, we could have handled it.

  4. In short, I didn t like it I ve had a hard time even finishing it The outcome was predictable from the start, the novel lacked action and I just couldn t relate to the main character.The novel lacked action in first place It s a very long description of a 6 year old child waking up from a cocoon her family and friends have built around her After suffering from extensive brain damage during a car accident Sal woke up without any memories She doesn t know who she is, doesn t know how to speak, rea [...]

  5. I got fair satisfaction out of this medical thriller with elements of science fiction and psychological horror I was aware of the buzz and fandom surrounding Grant s Newsflesh Trilogy kicked off with Feed in 2010, but I avoided them because of my aversion to zombies I figured I might do better with Parasite because it concerns a medical innovation that goes awry, and I love to see exposures of the evils of corporate greed The premise is that a bioengineered tapeworm is developed that confers imm [...]

  6. Gave up at 37% because this was terrible.It s because of my sick fascination with this type of thing that I bought this book instead of getting it from the library I have a love hate relationship with knowing about parasites, and other creepiness that can gross me out, so I expected to love this book on the merit that it would have me completely freaked out Nope BORING.It was so obvious what was going on with her though I admit I hadn t thought that for Sherman I skimmed to the end once I was do [...]

  7. WARNING THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART, FOR THOSE HANGING ON TO THEIR LAST SHREDS OF SANITY, AND FOR THOSE WHO CANNOT TAKE CRAZY PLOT TWISTS IT S INSANE, I TELL YOU INSAAAAANE This is what Parasite by Mira Grant made me feel It made me want to go on youtube to look for videos of carnivorous plants Needless to say, I stumbled upon the weird part of that crazy site again CANNOT UNSEE WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN It made me fucking scared of elongated little buggers who may just have the capability [...]

  8. Are you fucking kidding me You make me read 502 pages of mediocre and entirely predictable plot and then give me a TO BE CONTINUED

  9. First off ewwwwwww Parasites Tapeworms Gross And, dangerous.Secondly, this book is pretty boring until around page 130ish Then, it gets really good.Sally was in a horrible car accident and was brain dead after being in a coma for ages Luckily, the world has come up with an amazing new health plan that saves mankind from almost every kind of sickness or malady It s a tapeworm, of course, but don t worry because this is a friendly tapeworm that lives in your body to protect and serve you Like a di [...]

  10. Final rating 4.5 5 stars No one wants to set out to be a hero, and discover that they ve been a villain all along Mira Grant is amazing woman writer First, she captured my attention with Newsflesh, the series worth all the hype and also it was a series that i will never forget and the one that i reread already What i wanted to say, given how much i loved her previous series, i had high expectations of this series as well We all want things that can never happen, and even when we know they re not [...]

  11. Wanna know the first thing I thought of when I read the blurb of Parasite Monsters Inside Me That frightening, super gruesome documentary that can kill your appetite or make you throw up, depending on when you watch it, if at all And tapeworms I remember there was an episode where this girl went blind because tapeworms had eaten away her retina Gross, I know, but it s real, people I mention this because it may have something to do with why this book fell flat I was, quite simply, disillusioned I [...]

  12. One confused dog.A woman without her memory.And a whole lot of bugs.I m fighting off the urge to quote Samuel L Jackson The infamous Snakes on a Plane quote kept running through my head while reading this book, except swapped out with the word worms instead of snakes There weren t actually any parasites on a plane though even though there were a lot of them , so I am refraining.So, Parasite s kind of like The Host, except with a believable breakdown and a polished writing style Yes, I know that [...]

  13. This was than a well crafted suspense novel The world building was very reinforced, perhaps too much so in one direction, but the effect was pleasing Snippets of interviews and the children s book sufficed to creep me out consistently As for the main character, I was generally just fine with the idea that she was a six year old in a 26 year old body for a very good reason She was super naive That s fine for a character, but it did give the readers a bit of breathing space Omniscient view means [...]

  14. Humans have discovered a way to eliminate all illness through the use of genetically modified tapeworms until spoiler people realize that this is not a good idea This is exactly what I ve been looking for in my dystopian fiction suspense, high level secrets, great characters without the romantic drama YA fiction, compelling writing, and just a touch of horror It s first in a trilogy, and I m really excited to read the next two books Katie McLainfrom The Best Books We Read In August 2016 bookriot [...]

  15. I don t know where to start with this review I only know that I need to start it now because I have this weird thing that keeps me from starting a new book before I ve written a review for the book I ve read before And I really just want to start reading a book now and forget about the snooze fest that was Parasite.I ve read Mira Grant s Feed a few months ago and wasn t a fan It was one of those huge tomes where you wonder why did I put myself through this and waste my time I didn t hate it but [...]

  16. 3.5 stars Parasite is a near future thriller that imagines a world where personal health care is essentially managed by individuals ingesting specially bioengineered tapeworms Well, of course, that completely backfires in the worst way one can imagine as the tapeworms become self aware and try to take over their hosts.For the most part I quite enjoyed this book The story was definitely creepy, and I thought the characters were interesting enough, if not overly complex However, I also thought the [...]

  17. I got this and the second book for 1.50 each at a thrift store today Nominated for a Hugo Award and a 3.65 rating Hmmm Plus, it s Seanan McGuire I m wondering why the rating isn t higher Should I be nervous

  18. This review has been edited for content by SymboGen Corp Please remember, your health is too important to trust to just anyone We thank you for your understanding.So, what can I say about Parasite, another winner from Mira Grant Her Feed series will always have a special place in my heart Feed was the first book I read in my new home And it was such a joy to just sit in MY chair and read MY book in MY house and everything was quiet and perfect Isn t that the justification used by every scientist [...]

  19. 4.5 starsThe first thing you need to know about Parasite is that it is not Feed If you expect the emotional impact of Seanan McGuire s debut as Mira Grant, you will be sorely disappointed Feed is a once in a lifetime kind of book and it s unlikely that Seanan will ever repeat it.The second thing you need to know about Parasite is that it s brilliant nevertheless This is Mira Grant after all, so if sci fi medical thrillers are your thing, very few authors write it better than she does For me, the [...]

  20. Wow.Mira Grant is a fantastic writer, and why I hadn t read her before I do not know Parasite reminded me of Sara s Face by Melvin Burgess with the video transcripts and the excerpts from literary sources.This book freaked me out, it made me squirm, it made me think It made me stop and think I didn t need convincing about the overuse of anti biotics and biocides and how the sterilisation of our environment is bad I already knew that But now I m just going to go ahead and chuck out every nasty cl [...]

  21. I was looking forward to this story, but unfortunately it just didn t work for me Instead of feeling horror at events described which I think is what the author was going for I was just bored Probably doesn t help that there s frequent info dumping in between actual plot progression Also, the story felt very similar to the Feed Newsflesh series which I liked overall, but not enough to read listen to another 500 pages worth I had just read listened to the Newsflesh series over the last two months [...]

  22. I am not sure where this book went wrong for me but I went into it with high expectations I am a fan of Mira Grant, I find her to be a very good writer and I have enjoyed what I ve read from her in the past And I started off enjoying this too, but somewhere along the line it just lost its appeal and I ended up bored.The idea behind this book is a good one although I have to admit I was skeptical about the idea that science had engineered tapeworms to treat our medical ills These things can secre [...]

  23. 2.5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 201Mira Grant Seanan McGuire has wowed me before with her work, specifically, with the book Feed in her Newsflesh Trilogy I confess my deep love for zombie goodness, which is why I was so excited when I got my hands on Parasite, her new novel that appears to contain similar horror thriller themes Due to several factors, though, it turned out that wasn t able to get on board with this one as much as I d hoped, but I did very much like the subject Tape [...]

  24. You know what I did last night I read the blog posts from the Newsflesh series They brought tears to my eyes reminding me of how much I loved that series Now I ll have the chance to read another story form this amazing author and I really can t wait to fall deeply in love with a different pack of characters November, please come faster ____________________________________________Blog EN Facebook Twitter Tumblr Booklikes Blog RO ____________________________________________

  25. Disclaimer I received a copy of this book in ARC form from the publisher at BEA Book Expo America No promise of a positive review was made.Review Parasite is going to be a hit This book is genetically engineered to be a success To say I liked it isn t quite enough I was disturbed and angry I was completely engrossed I was disgusted, fascinated and most of all I believe this book is completely possible Perhaps not exactly the way it happens here, but in some way, I m sure humanities hubris will b [...]

  26. Say one thing about Mira Grant, say that she can write for a modern audience.Functional prose is used without reservations so that language is a vehicle for the story The conversations and actions in Parasite feel so natural and real that the reader is instantly convinced and dropped straight into a believable world Not necessarily in a world building sort of way recognizable from Fantasy novels, but even better with characters that start off fleshed out and rounded.I m a fan of epidemic pandemi [...]

  27. Nice and nasty stuff here Pinwormsrrringworms.flatwormstapeworms, that s it Honestly, it doesn t matter what kind of worm, the premise for this book is disgusting My only knowledge so far of tapeworms comes from microbiology, a college course in which our sadistic professor made us watch a video on parasites In this video, somewhere amongst the penis invading, urea loving fish and the bot fly larvae maggot growing in a lady s skull, there was a tapeworm incident An ingestion, if you will, when a [...]

See reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you Orbit for sending me this copy No compensation was given or taken to alter this review going to wind up having another one of those nightmares, the ones where his smile spread all the way around his head and met at the back of his neck Once that happened, his skull would spread open like a flower, and the mouth hidden behind his smile his real mouth would finally be revealed Ever since my science teacher showed our class this video with a guy having a t [...]

  29. There was so much potential here for a great book However, Sally may be one of the most annoying main characters I ve seen in awhile With a great concept like a company that made tape worms to help people going wrong and the outbreak of the sleepwalkers with worms going for the brain, it could have been a lot better The ending was probably the worst part because anyone could have guessed very early on that Sally had a worm in her head I would honestly not read further into this series if I hadn [...]
