gnomey's review of The Hot Zone

The Hot Zone


3out of 5

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.
