If you could sum up The Hot Zone in three words, what would they be?

Scary, informative, gripping

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed learning about the Ebola Virus while giving a face and personality to both its victims and its pursuers, which made the story aspect informative and compelling at the same time.

What does Richard M. Davidson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator was great in both the dialogue and inner thoughts of the witnesses and the informative parts.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I live a few miles from Reston Virginia and I have been looking for a book that gave insight into what happened rather than just skimming on the details. The author through various witness accounts paints the story from the eyes of the people who were there inside that building and what they felt at the time which made the biggest difference.

I was delightfully surprised how good this book was. The scenario is set up well and the author did his homework on Wendigos and you really feel the fear and paranoia that the characters go through. I really liked the two main characters of the story and cared what happened to them. I would recommend that you read the first book but it is not necessary but it does give you a background on the characters so that it is easier to follow.
