Publisher's Summary

A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease. We owe our good health to a humble parasite - a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system - even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams.
Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them. But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives... and will do anything to get them.

Tedious story

What would have made Parasite better?

Less complaining from the main character and more sci fi. Its not until midway till something starts to happen, but by then I'd burnt all my goodwill for this book.
Endless introspective complaining and chatting about her situation after some car crash. Tedious interactions with her new boyfriend. More complaining and whining about having to see her psychiatrists - who are all characterised as one dimensional and predictable.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mira Grant again?

No. She writes well, if you like slow plodding human relationship stories.
