The Hot Zone

by gnomey on May 26, 2010

The first part of this book was really exciting - the true story of ebola breaking out in Africa, in horrifying detail. Later, as the story focused on some army scientists dealing with an outbreak in monkeys in Washington D.C., it lost a lot of steam. The strain the monkeys had wasn't transmittable to humans, making it a lot less scary.


Must Read!

I've read this book twice, and both times couldn't put it down. For anyone in the profession dealing with disease on any level, this is a must own. For the casual reader, you may have nightmares, but it will give you a sense of reality that you will look for again in other books.

This was a great book. Plenty of gore and suspense was obviously a goal of preston when he wrote this book. He was well researched and unbiased. He put you back during this time period, and made you feel the effects of the Filoviruses. He put us in the shoes of the characters and made us feel what they feel.
