Kind of meh Alien knock off with some body horror. Super British, which was fun. Not a bad distraction.

I liked it! Daft, funny, ridiculously stupid in places. Good if you can take it in the manner I hope it was written in.

Strange, mushroom-like growths are appearing on peoples' bodies and doctors, puzzled by the strange virus that plants inhuman desires in the minds of victims, look for a cause and uncover a horrifying reality.

When a brilliant scientist seeking to solve the problem of world hunger tries to create giant mushrooms through genetic manipulation, what could possibly go wrong?

The mutated spores escape the lab and spread across all of England. Toadstools grow to twenty feet tall, and a case of athlete's foot can mean a grisly and horrible death.

But those who die quickly are the lucky ones. Those who survive infection by the fungus will be transformed into something unthinkably monstrous ...

I want to read EVERYTHING by this author! 🎇 What an incredible journey! 10 Pages in and there's already lots of action. The book is a perfect mix of cheeky humor, thrilling suspense, and a fast-paced plot that keeps you on the edge of your seat. The characters are unflinching and not too hesitant to use their weapons. It was a very fast-paced, high-tension, breathtaking read! I liked the ending, really coherent with both the characters and the situation.

I loved the author's writing style - it was witty, engaging, and kept me hooked from start to finish. The book had just the right amount of suspense and humor, making it a great read for anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi thriller.

TW: There's some brutal scenes in this, don't read if you're squeamish; it's just ultra-violent at times. Being that this book was written back then, there are some sexist views, (a few racist ones too), and a few other things that don't fit in with today's culture and attitudes.

Overall, I highly recommend "The Fungus" to anyone looking for a fun, fast-paced read.

Extremely solid read if you like horror. It feels a lot like War of the Worlds with the isolation the main characters face once they get to London, but a lot more witty all the way through. Does nothing revolutionary but does everything insanely well. there is one point in the book where a characters personality takes a 180 but it wasn't too big of a deal. If they spent a few more pages developing why he had that 180 it would of been better. Its not a story i can recommend to just anyone though and thats the only reason it doesn't get a 5 star from me. If you like horror check it out.… (mere)
