I was very excited to see a sequel to Scott's last book - Infectious. By keeping the main character from the last book, he caught my interest immediately and held on to it for the entire book. I listen to most books in dribs and drabs and so the story really needs to be memorable and this one was. I am also really happy to see that it's about to be made into a movie with Matt Damon playing the hero. What makes me think that the ending might change a bit????
I really enjoyed this story and it wasn't at all what I expected. The dilemma of the characters and the choices that they ended up making were choices that I would have struggled with, but which in the end I think were all that they could do.
The world is rough and this story helped me to see some of the edges that I have ignored.
I have only recently run into Jodi Picoult but it is a relationship that I see going on for many years. I read 19 Minutes the same week as the massacre in Virginia. There were times when the news stories were saying exactly the same words as were in the "novel". The research and completeness of Jodi's work is incredible. It gave me a completely different perspective on what we need to do to stop this kind of thing from happening.
This story has haunted me since I finished reading it. I thought that it was very well written and gruesomely described. I literally felt the tension as the plants reached their way into the ill fated team of campers.
I have also avoided any plants with red flowers since finishing the book.
