I really should have gone into epidemiology. I find disease and the way it spreads fascinating. This book was really interesting, but quite gruesome in places (as in the account of one girl who started gouging out her own eyes and pulling out her teeth, etc.) I'm definitely glad sleeping sickness seems to have disappeared for the moment. It doesn't sound like a pleasant disease.
