The first time I read (well, started reading) this book I was in junior high...and I read the first chapter and was I stopped. When I read it again a couple of years ago, I got through it but was still a little freaked out. Ebola and the hemorrhagic fevers scare me and intrigue me at the same time. It;s the kind of book that is eerie to read late at night when you're alone. Definitely entertaining, but the disclaimer to this one is that the historical situation it is based on is overdramatized heavily in the book. Don't take it to be complete truth.

Chewbaccaisthebeast Same I read it in science class in middle school, and everyone freaked out. Thought it was a good class bc the teacher passed the message that some bacterias are dangerous!
