"Splendid Solution" is a powerful story of the development of the polio vaccine and a reminder of what life was like before its availability. Imagine that every year as spring rolls around, so does the dread that by the time school begins in the fall, one or more of your children could be paralyzed or dead. There was tremendous fear and the numbers of families affected every year surprised me. The science is understandably explained and the personal stories quite compelling. We take a lot for granted.
I love literature and don't mind long stretches of nothing happening, but this was boring! Clearly, I'm in the minority on this but I wish I hadn't spent my credit on "Never Let Me Go".
