Book Review: Viral

Book: Viral

Author: James Lilliefors

Recommend: It was an interesting read for sure… along the lines of Outbreak meets The Da Vinci Code.

I picked this one up for the cover, put it in my library bag after reading the synopsis and dug into this one when I realized it was in the group of books that was due to the library next. Not normally the kind of thing I pick up but as an occasional change of pace, this kind of book can be a great distraction.

The story centers around two brothers who find out about a plot to kill of millions of people using biological warfare in order to create a perfect society in the aftermath. Definitely had an engaging plots, full of all kind of twists and turns designed to keep the reader guessing with a finish that no one could see coming. It was exactly what was advertised and was a lot of fun to read, minus trying to keep track of the large amount of details in these kinds of books.

My only pet peeve with this genre, is the fact that the characters seem to be able to function just fine on next to no sleep. Adrenaline will really only get you so far. Also the massive amount of globe hopping that comes with a book like this can seem rather unrealistic. I want to know how they had the money for all these flights. I think that sometimes authors don’t really think through the mundane details enough in order to make it believable.

Definitely an intense ride and worth a read.

Final Rating:

Get it used...
