Hi everyone! It has been a hot minute since I last read a book. Mostly because I like having a physical book and due to COVID-19, the libraries are closed. I also don’t particularly like buying books unless I absolutely love them or will go back and read them again.
So I needed to find another way to read a book. The Public library in Saskatoon does have an e-books but they don’t always have books I want or I have to wait a few weeks to rent it. However my partner pays for Amazon Prime and I have access to free e-books on there. That is where I found Pandemic.
I had no plans to read a book about a Pandemic seeing that we are living in one right now but the thing that drew me into this book was a review. The review said ” reads like a superior collaboration between Dan Brown and Micheal Crichton.”
Now if you have read my other book review, you would know that I LOVED Micheal Crichton’s books. I also LOVED Dan Browns Robert Langdon Series ( have not reviewed just loved). So therefore this should be the perfect book for me!
And of course it was. For being a book about a Pandemic, there were a lot of twists and connections which I loved.
Pandemic is about an outbreak of a disease, something that the doctors had not seen before. It is similar to Ebola, but what worked for Ebola is not working for this. Now the doctors that are trying to figure it out but are in a race against a clock before more people die.
In a second story line, you have a man who wakes up in a hotel room with a dead body and no memory of who he is. You go along with this man to piece back together his memories which are slowly coming back. The further into the book you see how these two story lines are they entangled and are they ever in more than one way.
All in all this was an amazing book. I truly did not want to put it down. There is also a sequel called Genome. Now through Amazon, I would have to buy the book ( damn you amazon) so I am going to try and find it another way because I do want to know how the story ends.
So if you want a sciency action book, I highly recommend Pandemic. This is definitely a 5 star book.
Talk to you soon!
