Imagine a killer with the infectiousness of the common cold and power of the Black Death. Imagine something so deadly that it wipes out 90 per cent of those it touches. Imagine an organism against which there is no defence. But you don't need to imagine. Such a killer exists: it is a virus and its name is Ebola. "The Hot Zone" tells what happens when the unthinkable becomes reality: when a deadly virus, from the rain forests of Africa, crosses continents and infects a monkey house ten miles from the White House. Ebola is that reality. It has the power to decimate the world's population. Try not to panic. It will be back. There is nothing you can do...

    All this book is, is just a reiteration of itself about twelve or so times. I have to say that the metaphors were funny at some points, but other than that nothing really exciting.

    Me lo leí pensando que era una novela de Ciencia Ficción y ha resultado ser una novela sobre la historia del Ébola. Está bien contada y lleva un ritmo adecuado. Consigue que la historia no se haga aburrida e incluso tiene momentos interesantes.

    Mi piaccioni i libri apocalittici, e questo è piuttosto inquietante
