    • 2.5 starsThis was the novel equivalent of those 'so bad they're good' made for TV films you only ever see when you're off sick from work, and watching any old trash because you're too weak to change the channel.It was completely over the top but did have some entertaining elements, and the idea of what might happen if there really was a plague outbreak is a terrifying one. An easy enough read for an afternoon's entertainment!


    • This is another 'what if' scenario where some workers on a building site unearth a plague pit from the time of the great plague of London in 1665. We follow the adventures of Charity, a radio reporter and her friend Paul, a scientist as they, single handedly it would seem, set out to save the world. There is a lot of action, the actual time is impossible to work out, the author says that an event happened in 1960 which was 25 years ago. King Charles is King of England and President Reagan is cur [...]


    • The Plague Pit was originally published in 1981 under the pseudonym Marc Ronson and has been re-released in the 21st century under what I assume to be the writer's real name, Marc Alexander. The late 70s and early 80s were horror's golden years. Thanks to writers like Stephen King, Clive Barker. Peter Straub, Robert McCammon and others, the horror genre burgeoned into a bestselling marvel. Every printing house in the world was clamoring for horror novels. That tends to bring out a fair amount of [...]



    • Best. Book. EVER!!!WOW!! What a ride!! My New Favorite Author!!The whole premise of a still-viable plague pit is wholly believable. The story grabs you by the throats and won't let you go, until sadly, its conclusion. Incredible story line, it NEVER drags, slows, or hiccups, but keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end! I highly recommend if you love historical adventure could-be-the-end-of-the-world romance-medical thrillersAWESOME read!!!


    • A very good read, I started it meaning to read for a bit before bed, found I couldn't sleep and read 2 thirds of the book, finishing after work the next night.The lead characters were interesting though you could see the journalist peaking through, the supporting cast were good and the disease awful.Bubonic Plague hitting London from an old Pit, not a idea but well written and show's a realist breakdown of society in the face of the disaster.The way that they coped with the Plague seemed realist [...]


    • It's hard to write an apocalyptic thriller at the moment as it's such a saturated market, particularly disease and plague as it draws a lot of parallels to Stephen King's The Stand. I really enjoyed the story but I don't think it particularly brought anything new to the table. I liked the characters though and thought it was well written.Recommended.


    • An interesting take on how an outbreak of plague might affect "modern" (20th century) London, drawing on and making comparison's with Daniel Defoe's "Journal of the Plague Year". It suffers from lack of character development of the two individuals which hold the story together, and reminded me of TV dramas of the 1970s which, if you watch them again now, seem a bit thin and anaemic.


    • Plague PitA wild and nilistic view of terror and carnage due to a biochemical outbreak of mass proportions. A well written book.



    • a good readthis is definately worth reading. It has a good storyline and flows well.Will keep my eyes open for any more books by this author


    • BelievableThe story about a modern day outbreak bubonic plague is so much better than the cover would lead you to believe. A plague pit on a construction site is opened and London begins to die. It's apocalypse circa 1980, and reads like current events.


    • The Plague Pit is a story about a handful of construction workers who break through to a mass grave that was bricked over during the bubonic plague in 1666. They greedily snag the jewelry that was left on the bodies. Unfortunately, it does not take long before the men become extremely ill. One of them runs into a church where Charity, a young radio journalist happens to be sitting in a far corner. She observes one of the construction workers throw a piece of gold jewelry and screams for forgiven [...]


    • ‘Plague Pit’ was previously published in 1981 under the name Marc Ronson and has been republished in 2016. It’s a fairly fast paced horror novel which, if you like this sort of thing, you’ll whizz through in a few hours. Smash, band, wallop and it speeds onto the next mini-climax. Set in London, workmen disturb a burial ground from the time of The Great Plague and of course a version of this Plague returns real quick as people are killed off real quick, those closest first. This type of [...]


    • I gather this book was written a while ago and is now republished – this does not detract from the overall story (in fact as it is set before mobile phones and social media it makes the idea all the more interesting). It is certainly a good read though I would not necessarily call it a horror book. The premise is pretty simple that an old plague pit has accidentally reopened by workmen and the plague is released into London. The central characters are well drawn and there are many on the perip [...]


    • Plague PitFor all you fans of the supernatural.is is it. We have read about Zombies , werewolf and the like for years. Fun Huh? Well this is true horror.e return of an old plague of epidemic proportion. What would we face in modern times if an old plague was to return? Would we be able to handle it.

    • Insightful and scaryis book shows just what can happen when greed replaces common sense.Great writer-read ghoul as a teenager and never forgot it.his books are always worth returning to for a second readt drowning in modern Technology so you can escape for. Everyday life .
