The reading of this book seems eerily prescient given the current outbreak of swine flu that could potentially turn into a pandemic. And the story makes me even more jittery about what could possibly happen if this virus were to get out of control (or in the wrong hands).
The book is quite good, although it doesn't end on a high note. I found the last part a little rushed and weak, almost as if the author had to rush to get the final draft to his publisher for printing.
Too bad because the story is engaging and realistic. I'd still recommend it, particularly because it's a good exposure to something that could happen at any given time.
