Journal Entry 4 by Dawnkey from Reston, Virginia USA on Saturday, September 19, 2009

8 out of 10

My husband and I were out pushing our twin 3 month old boys in their double stroller when we found the book at Reston Town Center. We're both English teachers, so free books are always something we can't pass up. My husband had read it already. He's from the area and remembers the outbreak, which is just down the road from our house actually. He had showed me many times where the monkey house was and I never really thought much of it nor did I know what Ebola was. Then when I found this, book I decided I really needed to read it. I'm actually not quite finished. It takes awhile to read anything with twin baby boys, but I'm about 3/4 of the way done and I've really enjoyed it. It's well written and keeps the reader in suspense all the time. I have to admit that I might not be as intrigued if this hadn't all happend a few blocks from where I live now. I might release it in New York in a few weeks. I've really put some wear and tear into it.

I had a friend take it up to Brooklyn when she went to visit. She left it there but I'm not sure where...
