Interesting and very clearly written. The back story is worthwhile on it's own.
If Ebola evolves to not kill the host so fast, we are in trouble.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, and I have. And I will. This book is for the ones that like science, adventure and mystery. It tracks down the causes of Ebola and how it may have spilled over in the human population. I can also wholeheartedly recommend this book to people that are into conspiracy theories, because even though the author follows a natural event, it seems like nature and evolution are conspiring against the human race, haha. All jokes aside, I would recommend it because it lays out a fascinating story of how ebola travels, it's mechanisms of infection and what are we doing as human species to combat it. Also, it reads like a mystery novel - the more you read the more questions you have.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Ebola?
There was too many to count. But if you thought that 2014 is the first time Ebola was on US soil, think again. I will say no more.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. And I did.
Any additional comments?
I also found out that Ebola was a part of original book that tracks the events of spillover of viruses and diseases from the animal kingdom to humans called Spillover. I read that book and I would recommend it as a step further in Quammens writings.
