    Imagine a killer with the infectiousness of the common cold and power of the Black Death. Imagine something so deadly and contagious that it wipes out 90 per cent of those it touches. Imagine an organism against which there is no defence. But you don't need to imagine. Such a killer exists: it is a virus and its name is Ebola. The Hot Zone tells what happens when the unthinkable becomes reality: when a deadly virus, from the rainforests of Africa, crosses continents and infects a monkey house ten miles from the White House. ...

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!

by AegyptiStalker on Feb 26, 2010

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.

A KILLER!

by harryspetdonkey on Nov 16, 2008

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.
