    1. I really didn't like anything about this book. It was a mixture of poor editing, a dreadful bitch of an MC and a plot that neither excited or entertained me. All of my dislike towards the book stems from the fact that our beloved MC heroine, Orissa, is a whiny, moaning faced, rude, obnoxious, self obsessed noron who I hated so much that I wanted to climb into the book and bite her myself.Orissa begins our story drunk, coming in late to her worried relative's house and then ends up in hospital ne [...]

    2. I read reviews before buying this. I was surprised to see that with complaints about mistakes, the book wan’t updated with a new version. I give it a two for that reason. It is a shaky three in my opinion.Orissa is a pain and is unlikable. She is selfish, bratty, and the star of her world. She selfishly leads helpless people into danger for her own ends and then is surprised when none of them have a problem with her lying. Instantly she is haled as the only one in a large group of people capab [...]

    3. I was really enjoying this until the last page.I just don't want to go on to the next book if !! UGH

    4. As a writer, I REALLY hate to give negative reviews. I tried very hard to give this book second and third chances. Maybe, not to be sexist, but maybe it's a chick book. It was written by a woman and focused more on the feminine protagonist (even written partially in the first person) and her romantic entanglements in the midst of the Zombie Apocalypse more than it did the technical details and research I crave. The glaring errors in terms of firearms I tried to overlook, but they were painful. I [...]

    5. I'm not too impressed with this book, and it doesn't surprise me it's only 99 cents on Barnes and Noble. I really disliked the main character. She's all high and mighty and considered to be super smart, yet continues to make stupid decisions throughout the book. The whole "everyone is in love with her" thing doesn't really work for me. I frankly didn't care whether or not she decided to actually date one of the many guys that had a thing for her. They would go out of their way to put themselves [...]

    6. This book took me longer than usual to read, for one simple reason. Reading zombie books before bed is not an easy task. I had to take breathers between chapters! There were very few moments in this book that could ever be considered "slow", or "boring". You never can tell when a zombie is going to jump out from behind a tree and take a chunk out of you. I had a constant sense of foreboding, even when the characters were "safe". It was probably because of the fast pace that I had a hard time con [...]

    7. I can't give this post-apocalyptic story six stars but I wish I could! This is not a re-read, it's too harrowing a tale for me, but I cannot wait to read book #2! This author falls under the "Narrative-voice-I-love-to-read" category squarely. Goodwin has an almost conversational style to her writing that makes the reader feel like their intimate friend is regaling tales with the highest degree of excitement and tension available. Goodwin can also write an almost movie-like action scene. I see th [...]

    8. I fell in love with this book. With Orissa, with Hayden, with all of them. I have said it a million times, I am a sucker for a kick as heroine! Orissa is bad ass! None of the original "crew" would have survived if it wasnt for Orissa.When they 1st ran into the government guys inside my head I am screaming NO DONT GO WITH THEM, but it turns out they werent so bad. I do not like the facility though, I think there is some shady stuff going on there. Wondering if that might come out in the next book [...]

    9. 3.5 rating. This was an ok read. It was an odd zombie apocalyptic story. There just didn't seem to be enough people, or zombies If there were only a few survivors, where were all the zombies? The survivors had some encounters, but not enough. Everything was a little too easy. It did keep my interest, which was good. But, that cliffhanger ending Grrrr

    10. Looks like with the new release I'm going to have to re-read and write a new review huh?!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------So I will admit I was a little leery about this book with a 99 cent price tag. I haven't gotten very many cheap or free books until recently, but I'm glad I got it; because I'm a sucker for zombies. So let me tell you, this book was beyond amazing for me. Emily Goodwin has produced a very strong female lead for this series, [...]

    11. Ok I have found a minded spirit in a writer by the name of Emily Goodwin.  I just finished the most fabulous book in a long time.  Contagious (The Contagium Trilogy).  She was able to tap into me a bring many and I mean many emotions.  A very thrilling roller coaster ride that had me screaming out and then bawling like a big giant baby.  This is first book that I got into emotionally to become fully vested since I first read Twilight books when the first came out.  In my opinion she has re [...]

    12. This is one of my favorite Zombie romance series. I recommend it to everyone. I wish there were more than three books, but the author did a great job wrapping it all up. Kudos!

    13. One word: NO.By now, many of you know I love zombies with a fiery passion. Zombie movie? I'm in! Zombie TV show? I'm in! Zombie books? Pfff, of course I'm in! Aside from that, you also may know that many of the books I've read of this particular genre have disappointed me. This wasn't an exception.Issues I had with Contagious—Main character is a highly unlikable Mary Sue. She's not just badass, she's completely perfect. She'll risk her life for anyone, including a cat or a dog, and will always [...]

    14. I don't often give 5 star reviews but this book most definitely earned it. I really don't understand the 1, 2, and 3 stars I read before buying it. OK there were a few type-o’s. I counted 5 or 6 but woopdie-doo. No one is perfect and seriously, have you priced editors. I'm not about to pay someone 25 dollars an hour for something so trivial. This book is very, very good. I'd love to use profanity to describe it but I'm afraid my review wouldn't be left up if I did. And no to the person who cla [...]

    15. Just got done reading this in a day and must say I really enjoyed it. At first, after just finishing a different zombie trilogy that was awesome, I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but soon grew to like the complexity of the different characters. About half way through book I did get a little bored and it seemed to drag, but after the end of the book I feel more like it was a ploy by the author to have you feel the characters complacency with their false sense of safety. That mad [...]

    16. At first I contemplated putting this book down because the main character was just too much of a bad a** to be believable. It was just too convenient that she had been raised by a crazy grandfather suffering from PTSD who left her in the middle of nowhere for days at a time forcing her to learn survival skills, shoot guns and become a perfect shot with a bow & arrows. She also had been in trouble as a teenager so she knew how to hot wire cars, etc. I think you can see where I'm going with th [...]

    17. This has got to be in my top 10 favorite books, Loved the characters, storyline, everything. Took a little to get into though, I'd say at about 15% I was hooked. I loved how I didn't like Orissa to begin with, and I didn't even notice the moment I started liking her, I felt the author spent her time on character development, and made the book better for it. Loved how we are introduced to some main characters half way through book, kept the pace up and interesting. No main character is safe :'( b [...]

    18. Son of a bitchCan I start a review that way? Because I totally just did.I was given this book in exchange for an honest review from the author. It was also highly recommended by a blog I follow/stalk, Contagious Reads.Anyway, I haven't really found a zombie book I've enjoyed in a while. They're all the same, pretty much. So I put off reading this one for a while.Big mistake.This book was awesome!A few times a felt a bit put off because of something in the story, but it wasn't a big deal because [...]

    19. This book freaked me out!!!!! This one of the better zombie stories I have read. It had just enough realism to make me not want to read it too close to bedtime for fear I would dream of zombies. Part of me thought the ending was perfect. I can not really say why without creating a huge spoiler, but I thought the ending was perfect for this kind of book. The other part of me was super excited to see there will be a sequel. I will definitely read the next installment (in the daylight hehehe). I re [...]

    20. Very good story line. It good use more editing. So far I am enjoying the read. The characters and plot lines are well developed.I have now finished the book and I can' wait for book two. The characters are really well developed. It's like I was getting to know them better as I read. Emily reminds me of how Dean Koontz writes. Her story line makes me feel like I am there with the characters. She is now one of my favorite authors.

    21. There's nothing quite like a good zombie novel, and Contagious by Emily Goodwin is a great one. With a terrific main character, plenty of action, and a slam-banger of an ending, I loved this book from cover to cover. Five stars and highly recommended!

    22. I loved this book and the way that everyone was fighting to staying alive, Orissa is like a Jack Reacher (Lee Child) and Carver (Tom Cain) in one, it about time we had a female fighter like them

    23. Such an amazing book! A very quick, easy read, and it leaves you dying for the next one to come out! Keep up the good work, Mrs Goodwin, I can't wait to read more of your work!!

    24. OMG! I can't even stress how awesome this book is. I couldn't stop reading. Great characters and amazing action. Can't wait for the next one!

    25. That's for you, Emily Goodwin! Give yourself a high five.I am a huge zombie genre fan (you don't say ) and this is the first zombie novel written by a woman that I have read. Not to be stereotypical, or sexist, but in a genre primarily dominated by male writers, this was a pleasant and surprising change. Because in case the 5 star rating didn't give it away, I totally loved this novel.Orissa is bad ass. No better way to describe her. She is selfish, hard, and at times very unemotional. Not to me [...]

    26. This Zombie Apocolypse story is greatly written. I love how the writer just fills it with so many suspensful moments. She makes my heart beat real fast and real hard in my chest, as if I were in the thick of it all. Amazing!! Orissa is awesome in her courage and bravery. The way she never quits and is not willing to just lay and die for anyone, not even her own misery is astonishing. The way this girl just comes up with so many ways to get herself out of jams on the fly; says a lot about her int [...]

    27. "I wasn't afraid of death. If I died, it would be over. My worst fear wasn't of dying, it was of living. Living, while everyone around me had their flesh savagely torn from their bodies to be shoved into the festering and ever-hungry mouths of zombies. It terrified me, right down to my very core, to be alive while the rest of the world was dead."This is a quote taken from Orissa Penwell, the main charactar in the Contagium series. It pretty much sums up how BAD ASS this character is. She is a 25 [...]

    28. The book is re-releasing through Permuted Press this summer!!! And I've had a chance to go through the newest shiny version of the book.Contagious follows the Orissa 'Riss' Penwell as she fights to stay alive in the aftermath of the ZA. She must protect her group of survivors. The group is struggling to stay afloat until they are rescued. I don't want to say much more than that for fear of giving something away. Contagious is one of those books that stick with you. Orissa Penwell is a seriously [...]

    29. I read this two years ago when I got my first Kindle. I loved it then and now the author, Emily Goodwin has released the third book in the series, Chaos is Contagious, so I had to reread the first two to be up on what is going on. It was a pleasure to read it again. She has re-released the first two also with new editing so if you read this please get the new release. It is a story of a young woman, Orissa Penwell, who is just hanging out with her friends and gets caught up in the zombie apocaly [...]
