Yes. I enjoyed the story once I decided not to dwell on medical inaccuracies.
Mispronounciations ("filling" from the plane instead of "filing" from the plane). Inconsistent Aussie accent. Were the lesions "pustules" or "papules"?
I would see the movie if it had one of my favorite actors.
The author should listen to his medical advisor more closely. Have the advisor listen to the audio script as well.
The plot was ok but the reader mispronounced much of the technical/medical terminology. If this is being billed as a medical thriller- you need to get it right.
I'm relatively new to Audible. This is my second book. I found the story intriguing and Marilyn Ghiliotti's narration engaging.
The premise was interesting and quite valid, considering what we have been seeing in the news about outbreaks. I learned a lot about the CDC and what its purpose is, and how very common outbreaks are around the world.....which is quite terrifying in itself! What makes the book so terrifying is the prospect of how the military and government could possibly treat such a scenario. Quite thought provoking.
We are bombarded with negative horrors in our news daily.....I would prefer a somewhat more positive outcome......as much as possible anyway with the prospect of an outbreak.
Probably, its almost like the accident you can't look away from, although your are horrified by what you see.
Yes definitely met expectations
Need to read pestilence now
I had not read books by this author previously
