I read that Rubin is a public health advocate. I wonder how much of her personal experience fueled her knowledge of the medical plot points in this novel.

I'll be honest here. I hated this book and didn't even finish it. I couldn't finish it because I found it slow and I couldn't catch on to it.

I read medial thrillers rarely, but I really enjoyed this one since the author's writing style is fluent and involving. The element of suspense in the book was also well done. All in all it is worth a read.

I have very mixed feelings about this book. I'll admit that I did not finish it due to school taking up 90% of my time now, but of what I did manage to read, I didn't quite like it. I loved the concept and the plot, but something about it just didn't sit right with me.
So many books to read, so little time..

I only recently came across this book. I have always loved to read medical thrillers, working as a Med Tech myself. I found the connection with SARS pretty real. I remember the time of the viral outbreak and the terror it had initiated.

The summary and the comments here sure are interesting! Although I feel I'm pretty late to get this book from OBC, I'll try to get my hands on it via Amazon.

This book was absolutely excellent. It engaged me from the beginning till the end and it drew me into the action and was such a page turner that I could not put the book down. It has a great balance between plot and character development and the medical terms used in this book are not too complex for people without medical experience to understand.
