IS IT EBOLA?
When this first started out, I thought it was going to be real good. We were even going to get to see what drives a person to become a terrorist. Then after the first six chapters we start getting all these lectures. We learn all the stats on deaths in Africa. Very detailed stats. Americans take a real big hit. We have no worries, especially compared to Africans. We have telethons and think all is well.
Talk about it, Talk About it, Talk About it.
This is advertised as a thriller. I have read a lot of thrillers and this is not a thriller. This almost belongs in Great Courses. The main characters spend a lot to time talking about things. They do a lot more talking then doing. The reader knows that they are dealing with Ebola, yet the characters can't make up there minds. The reader knows it is airborne, but that is also debated by several different people in several different locations. Adair keeps acting like he is building suspense, yet the readers already know, so what is suspenseful? This is more documentary then novel. It is not bad it is just not what I thought I was buying.
The narrator is okay, but the more bored I got with the lack of story, the more the narrator started to get on my nerves. He started to sound very condescending.

This book was shallow, predictable, repetitive. The dialog was laughable. The characters were boilerplate. The narration was poor. It was NOT represented as a Book 1 in a series. I slogged through it to be done with it. IT ENDED PRACTICALLY IN MID-SENTENCE. There was no denouement whatsoever. It was completely obvious that it was just a device to prompt you to buy more. I'm NOT going to buy the second in a series of bad books. I have almost 500 titles in my library and this is just the second time I've taken Audible up on their return policy.

I have been reading about EBOLA since 1996 especially microbiology research. The book speak the true.
