Read The Genius Plague Online Free - What if the pandemic you thought would kill you made you more intelligent instead? In the Amazon jungle, a disease is spreading. To those who survive, it grants enhanced communication, memory, and pattern recognition. But the miracle may be the sinister survival mechanism of a fungal organism, manipulating the infected into serving it.
Paul Johns, a mycologist, is convinced the fungal host is the next stage of human evolution, while his brother Neil, an analyst at the NSA, is committed to its destruction. Is the human race the master in this symbiotic relationship, or are we becoming the pawns of a subtly dominating and utterly alien intelligence?

Yes, I am giving my own book five stars! If I don't think the book is awesome, why would anyone else want to give it a try?

Mother Nature can be a scary bitch. Forget horror movies; if you ever want to see some truly messed up, freaky bone-chilling stuff, look no further than your BBC nature documentary. Case in point: the “Jungles” episode of P...

David Walton’s The Genius Plague has a promising setup: a pathogenic fungus spreads rapidly among the human population, raising the hosts IQs to genius levels, but also forcing them to act in ways that eschew individual agency in favor of ensuring the continued viability of the fungus. The most i...

The nitty-gritty: Hugely entertaining, this terrifying vision of what our future could be like will keep you turning pages long after bedtime.
I loved David Walton’s Supersymmetry , a fast-paced scientific thriller about time travel and alternate realities, so I knew that The Genius Plague was...

Did you know that mushrooms are the sex organs of fungus??
I've never liked mushrooms. Ever. I think the only way I've ever liked them was when my family in Indiana would go mushroom hunting and then my grandmother would deep fry them to where they basically melted in your mouth.. and I still dous...

When I read science fiction, it’s the opposite. I’m generally hoping for hope and for awesome visions of the future. I’m not expecting to hav...

The Genius Plague, by David Walton, is a very well-written thriller which delves into the question of what does it mean to be human, and is there a better way? Universal truths are put to the test as the action whips back and forth from the offices of the NSA to South America and back. There is c...

I absolutely loved the concept and ideas behind this book, but I felt the execution didn't measure up. It was so fast-paced that the characters seemed underwritten, to the point that even Neil fell flat with little perceptible character development. I spent much of the novel wishing that the auth...

This book is.
I can't say that it excels at anything it does and I certainly can't recommend it.
I'm not entirely sure why I finished it. Dogged determination? A foolish hope for a second half rally?
Either way, this book has a cool concept but a very boring execution.
For a more charact...
