This novel is absolutely brilliant, if chilling given the global COVID-19 pandemic.
Wright’s meticulous research and explanations of the science behind nature’s most lethal killers is matched with superb characters and story telling.
Highly recommended. Also, great performance by the narrator.

A remarkable accomplishment and a story so vast and deep and everlasting that it needed to be told in this way.
Graff has done a masterful job and captured voices we know, and, more importantly, voices we don’t.
The selflessness and heroism of so many in this book is uplifting, as is the sheer big-heartedness of others who put their shoulders to the wheel to help strangers in their greatest hours of need.
This book is a testimony to humanity, and a memorial to the intrinsic goodness and decency of most people.
Highly recommended.

Gripping plot with a cast of great characters, each of who is a story on his or her own. Cleverly woven story that had me staying up too late - a good thing for the author. Tiny criticism: the main antagonist - the Courier - could have been a little more backgrounders to understand full depth of his nihilism. Brilliant narration, too. Thoroughly recommended.

Brilliant performance by the narrator, and a great plot, with rich characters. Definitely worth a listen.

Great story, but not the whole story.

Enjoyed the book and performance, but there were a couple of holes in the storyline, such as the disappearing father, no reaction from Molly’s family about the charges against her, her drug use, and the more specific charges to which she pleaded guilty and those that were dropped and under what circumstances they were dropped. Other than that, highly recommend the book.
