WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Wow, I feel like I need a bath in a tub of sanitizer. All this talk of scary virus' that multiply and change and cause horrible dealth. I listened to this on a book on tape and I think that made it scarier as there was music and I was in a car full of potential virus. It was interesting to learn about these true stories. I think hollywood has made this worse as I kept thinking worst case scenerios and then things worked out ok. Thanks for sharing this with me, it was a fast pace novel that sucked me in.

I am taking this to Calgary's "Wonderful World of Colour" themed meeting. A book full of colourful virus! If no one takes it home, it will be left on the shelf.

Are you in the Calgary area and interested in meeting up with other Calgary BookCrossers? Please check out our facebook group, "BookCrossing Calgary" for details on how.

Brilliant book about emerging filoviruses. The writing is a fantastic balance of interviews facts and storytelling.

That said, not happy fun reading. Very scary and probably best not read around meal times. I was distinctly not happy the next time I got a headache.

I am the daughter who is not easily shocked (see above)
I really enjoyed the book, truth really is stranger than fiction!
Because it is a real account of event it doesn't flow or have a satisfying conclusion like a work of fiction might, but that only detracted from my enjoyment in a minor way. I do appreciate a good suspense and this was able to deliver.
This was given back to my squeemish mother for redistribution

OK - I finally read this as I had put it off thinking I might not like it. BUT - I did. It really makes you think about whether a black plaque type thing will beset us in the next few years. Sometimes it seemed like a mystery book, then you would have a reality check. The end seemed a bit weird.

The book started off off with a gruesome bang and kept me scared till the end. It's amazing how many close calls and near-disasters there were in this true story.

Great read. I never really wanted to go to Africa anyway.

I read this while taking care of a newborn. It was pretty amazing that I still continued to go out with the baby after reading this.

It was scary how close things got to disaster, in this very global world, things could go south pretty quickly,
