One of Cook's most successful--and timelybestsellers. Contagion is a terrifying cautionary tale for the millennium as a deadly epidemic is spread not merely by microbesbut by sabotage...
If you want to know more read the book!
sometimes, the medical jargon in Robin Cook's novel does not make it difficult reading. Most of the medical terminology is explained sufficiently for the reader to understand the significance of the medical find.
This is the first time we hear of Jack Stapleton and Laurie Montgomery. We hear of them again in Chromosome 6 and Vector. Robin tells you in more detail about Jack and Laurie then now the latter on. There is the plane crash that takes the life of Jack's family and how he leaves being a eye doctor to be a medical examiner.
I Highly recommended it!
Aside from those minor flaws, I was reading late into the night & thoroughly enjoying it.
pros-Good plot, samples of all different genres.
cons-The story starts out rather slowly.
I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes medical thrillers, this is one of the best books in this genre that i have read.
