    1. Overall, this book was preposterous. From the premise to the ending, from the often awkward dialogue to the way the narrator spent the entire book referring to the main character as "Dr. Petrie," even when he was interacting with characters who would have called him by his first name had they been addressing him directly, there were plenty of times that I just shook my head in bemused disbelief.Nevertheless and true to form, Masterton still found a way to make this book a fast and entertaining r [...]

    2. Yes, this book is over-the-top silly and unrealistic but I have to admit that I enjoyed smirking my way through it anyway.

    3. De lo mejorcito del Masterton "primigenio"; esta novela de 1977 tiene un ritmo excelente y pese al alcance de su premisa (una variante mutada de la peste arrasa los Estados Unidos) se mantiene enfocada y no desvaría mucho, hasta llegar a un abrupto y malrollero final. Masterton es bueno narrando catástrofes y mostrando lo peor del ser humano en esas situaciones además de, claro está, aliñar la cosa con sus acostumbradas escenas violentas y de sexo bastante explícito. Si me ha durado dos d [...]

    4. Started off really well, I couldn't put it down, then about two thirds of the way through it seemed to take a bizarre turn. There is an idiotic subplot which seems to do little more than provide the author an opening to portray a certain political party in the most evil, vile light possible; it was asinine. There is at least one or two other subplots that seem to be completely pointless and go nowhere. In the last third almost every character suddenly does ridiculous, nonsensical things and then [...]

    5. I thought this was an overall very good bookright up until the end. What a bunch of crap. The ending destroyed everything the author had built up. Granted, the book was outdated. I am a doctor and the way these people thought at times was crazy and unrealistic. Also, if an English writer is going to write about an American situation he should at least get the words right. It is elevator (not lift. It is road or street (not track). Otherwise well written.

    6. I was ready to give this book a fair amount of leeway based on its title and age. but the author has emptied the cupboard of random moronic plot elements, thrown them all in a pot and given them a big old stir with the stupid stick. by the end of the book the plague is almost lost in a load of other junk.

    7. Plague starts with real gusto and determination, easily belying its age. It develops characters quickly and adds depth to be mined after the premise has been firmly laid out. For the first half Plague is a tightly written and menacing outbreak story, with impending doom hanging over Miami. The second half of the novel is wider in both its story arc and its attempts to deliver horrific fiction, however one subtracts from the other, creating a less believable and therefore less engaging read. Mast [...]

    8. Always a sucker for an apocalyptic novel. Always wonder if the author is going the distance to fully realize the ultimate outcome of the story arc. (Found this book in a box of mildewed paperbacks at a PTA fund raising sale. I have learned the author has gone on to accomplish illustrious works) I saw him taking his characters down increasingly wretched paths, and wondered if a rabbit was going to be pulled out of a hat; after all, that's what the reader WANTS.Nope no rabbit. But beyond what appe [...]

    9. Mój pierwszy przeczytany w życiu horror, miałem wtedy 15 lat i byłem nim zachwycony. Pewnie dziś byłoby inaczej, ale czytając ją 6 lat temu mnie powaliła. Zakochałem się w niej i stwierdziłem, że to jest właśnie to co kocham najbardziej. Cała ta atmosfera zbliżającej się śmiertelnej choroby coś niesamowitego ;) i zakończenie (którego teraz to już tak dokładnie nie pamiętam), to wszystko sprawiło, że pokochałem takie książki :)---29.07.2017Oook, właśnie przypomnia [...]

    10. This book came out one year before Stephen King's The Stand, and to my tastes, is vastly superior. It deals with the actual outbreak of the titular Plague (and not the aftermath), also has a hefty cast of characters, but:a) the writing is lean and with a terrific slightly wry style in the Len Deighton way;b) there's no endless filler;c) there's no mysticism.There are other books in which Masterton is "King but better", not least of all The Wells of Hell and Night Warriors, but while in these oth [...]

    11. I thought this was an overall very good bookright up until the end. What a bunch of crap. The ending destroyed everything the author had built up. Granted, the book was outdated. I am a doctor and the way these people thought at times was crazy and unrealistic. Also, if an English writer is going to write about an American situation he should at least get the words right. It is elevator (not lift. It is road or street (not track). Otherwise well written.

    12. Unfortunately this kind of story has been done since many times and as a result this is judged alongside other similar efforts now. Nothing brilliant but an ok read to tie oneself up in for a while. The ending was a jolt, in that it kind of just ended without resolution of anything but I can understand why it was done that way. Not exceptional but not terrible.

    13. Really enjoyed this, but the main character of the doctor seemed unnecessarily cruel at times, especially towards the end of the book, and some of his decisions were unrealistic. And was that rape scene really necessary? I just don't see the point of it in the storyline.

    14. Agree with most that this started promisingly but started to get a bit weak. Had it gone on a bit longer so been a bit more developed towards end I probably would have given it 4 stars.

    15. Read some comments bashing the ending of this book so it kinda got me worried but Im glad i finished. loved!!! fantastic way to finish! Gripping from beginning to the end!

    16. Now that I have read the plague I understand other reviews canning the end. Yes, l agree ending truly pathetic! The book, built and built towards the climax and then
