T to spill such a huge spoiler but I won tI m telling you go get this bookReceived for an honest review Note This is a re issue of a book originally ublished in 1982The Half a Million Dead Cannibals premise of this story theossibility of a deadly Lady Pirate pandemic is what initially drew me in to The Virus and for the mostart I was not disappointed although there were some stumbling blocks The story is noticeably dated in some ways as it was first ffentliche Finanzen: Einnahmenpolitik (Neue konomische Grundrisse) published in 1982 but I was annoyed by some of the actual writing Over and over again the author uses characters full names ie Susan Wainwright or Lowell Kaplan both of which are repeated multiple times Once or twice is sufficient we do not need to be told a character s full name endlessly Mr Johnson is not a first time novelist when this is being re issued hopefully with some re editing and should know betterMr Johnson also takes some very broad liberties with his descriptions of the original Marburg outbreaks I suppose in the interest of increasing the level of fear I m all for a good thriller but when it s based on actual occurrences Irefer that the author stick to the facts a bit closely and in this case the real Marburg is very scary indeed no embellishment neededAt one oint mention is made of the Congressional Medal of Honour being bestowed upon an individual but in fact that could not happen based on the circumstances and 30 seconds of research would have revented this error There are other awards that would be appropriate in this situationAll that aside a thriller generally has lots of breakneck action to The Unbearable Lightness of Scones 44 Scotland Street prevent a horrible event from happening and that certainly happens in The Virus Lowell Kaplan is remarkably obtuse so than most thrillerrotagonists but he is instantly believed by all sorts of Ébano Enfrentados people inower no matter what he says so he was not an altogether credible hero Still he s ultimately a very likeable character as is a woman named Stephanie Verusio and likeability is an important element in making a thriller work Also as in any good thriller the bad guys seem to have the upper hand uite a bit and it s not till the end that we see what really was going onBottomline read The Virus with a somewhat jaundiced eye suspend your disbelief and sit back for an enjoyable ride that will keep you entertained After all entertainment is a The Return of the Serpents of Wisdom pretty good reason for reading don t you thinkReviewed by Lelia Taylor June 2015 30 out of 5 stars When a 19 year old student Diane Verusio returns to New York from Brussels and expires in isolation at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital she speaks only the words green monkeys before she dies Dr Lowell Kaplan from the CDC is dispatched from Atlanta to track down the identity the origin and the transmission of her mysterious illness After Dr Kaplan speaks to Diane s familyhysician Dr Isaac Rueben who himself becomes ill Kaplan is on a time sensitive mission to stop the spread of this lethal virus and his efforts take him to Germany and to Africa This would have been a enjoyable medical thriller IF the storyline and the science wasn t so dated Since the recent outbreak of Ebola made headlines and with all the information the the earthuake room public now understands about the Filoviridae thislot line about a related virus the Marburg virus bordered on gross inaccuracy and strained credulity For all that it was a fast Identiteti evropian i shqiptarëve paced and entertaining read once I stopped fact checking on the internet and justretended that Dr Kaplan head epidemiologist at the CDC should be corrected in this book as United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was investigating a otential outbreak of some new strain I love medical thrillers and will almost always take a chance whenever I have the opportunity Thank you to Edelweiss for the ARC e book to review The first thing to say is I m not a fan of Stanley Johnson For those.
