A compelling, terrifying story of a devasting virus. Have you ever imagined what it would be like to kill someone, or wondered, in your darkest secret thoughts, about the taste of human flesh? What if you woke up and began your morning by devoting the rest of your life to a murderous rampage, a never-ending cannibalistic spree? And what if you were one of thousands who shared the same compulsion? This book depicts just such as an epidemic. You catch it through conversation and it leads you into another world where the undead chase you down the streets.

Ugh, this is a revolting book. Dark, perverse and disturbing in a non-entertaining way. I saw the movie Pontypool and enjoyed it. So I thought I would read the book. But between the disjointed writing, and the content itself, I was very disappointed.

Loving the unique, strange, and chilling movie, I was looking forward reading the book that inspired the movie. Too bad it inspired it in only the broadest sense.
I got the sense that the book was written by a first-year English major that was trying much too hard, mixing realism and magical aspects in jarring ways - leaving me confused and scrambling to follow the thread of the plot.
I've loved other surreal works; A Clockwork Orange, The Naked Lunch, but Pontypool is just puzzling and vague. Worst book I've read in the last couple years - though I'd love to see a University English class try to defend or unravel it....
