Definitely a thoughtful review, and on a lighter note, the pasty-panty banter was hilarious. I have added this book to my list thanks to the new book coming out and this review.

Carrie Rubin sets the stage from the start to reveal the seriousness of the circumstances. I like her style of writing. Just as the medical staff feels a sense of impending doom, so do I as a reader. I feel I have an advantage here over those coming into contact with the first patient in that I see the potential for the infection to spread. I hope to read more of this author's work.

Just by looking at the cover, this would not be a book I would choose to read. However your review made me want to read it. Great job!

Your review sounds quite interesting. Although I'm usually not inclined to read books about 'medical stuff', your review made me quite inclined to read this book. The Seneca Scourge sounds like a definite must-read for me. Good job on the review!

I myself haven't really indulged into 'medical-sort' books, but this seems like a great mystery book. Thank you for the great review!
