AWESOME READ, engrossing story
This is an amazing book!! It is soo well written and engrossing! I read it in one sitting because I could not put it down! It really gives you a lot to think about.
What would happen if a pandemic threatened the health of humans throughout the world?
What if a virus that doesn't normally affect humans or that typically isn't serious suddenly becomes lethal and quickly spreads across the population?
What if the initial steps taken by countries across the globe fails to isolate it?
What if cities across the country go into lock-down - schools and businesses close, and travel is banned?
And finally: what if, on top of all this, your area is hit by a severe snow storm that blankets everything with deep snow and knocks out the power?
What makes this a good book isn't just the story, it is the eerie fact that something like this could actually happen today. Pandemics, such as the one that occurred in 1918, are a real and scary phenomena, and the author realistically illustrates what such an event would look like in modern times.
This is the best book I've read so far this year (as of April 2010) which is why I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good read. Unless, of course, you happen to be a paranoid germ-o-phobe, in which case you may want to reconsider!
