EDIT: After reading the sequel of this book Kissing the Coronavirus 2: The second wave. I'd like to higher the rating of this book to 2 stars because it really was the blueprint.


Bitches be like ‘nope-never-going-to-read-this’ and then go and download this book a second later because it’s in kindle unlimited. I’m bitches.

Update: The sequel is coming out and I will definitely be reviewing it

I don't know whether to give this 5 stars or 1 star.

Don't get me wrong, this book is awful. Absolutely horrible. But in the best possible way. It is exactly what I wanted it to be.

But let's get to some of the quotes, because there are quite a few here I wanted to share.

"Kissing the Coronavirus" is a literary tale about humanity, capitalism, & lust for gratification

Full analysis:

My thoughts cannot fully be contained within a written review, so in this video essay, I analyze how this book provides a critical look at how we value personal liberty over safety.

I often self-effacingly refer to myself as a garbage can because I read a lot of books that many people consider trashy. In fact, a lot of trash is quite excellent or at least aspires to be. Not KISSING THE CORONA VIRUS, though. This is a book that wallows in its terribleness. Even though it's only sixteen pages, the author has charged 99 cents for it, and written something so outlandish that all of us are out there, doing all of their p

I read this because it has been all over my social media and as someone who works daily with the virus, I couldn't say no to this!


‘What’s your name?’ she asked. ​‘Call me Covid,’ he said.

This was BREATHTAKING!! Quite literally.

This year I read huge authors like Sanderson, Abercrombie, Ruthfoss and others and yet I think this author writes on a whole different level. Prepare yourself for your next favorite read after you finish this one.

She was supposed to cure the Coronavirus.
Instead...she fell in love with it.

This iconic book has received all kinds of reviews, yet there is one question no one has offered an answer to: What the FUCK?

I shall now proceed to answer that question—dividing it into four parts to help specify what the actual fuck ⤵

⓵ What the fuck would make humanity come up with the idea of this book?
⓶ What the fuck would make humanity go ahead and write this book?

According to Amazon, the author lost their job and wrote this book to be able to pay the bills. Because of the very eeehhh ... interesting subject of the story, I will assume they lost it due to the pandemic. Also, at the end of the book the author says they have 18 ferrets.

So congrats people, you may need therapy, drugs, or a lobotomy after reading this book, but at least you did your good deed of the day and helped feed 18 ferrets.

Not planning on reading this.

However, I have to say that I'm happy that this was created because of it we now have some of the best reviews I've ever read.

Plus, today I was reading some of Czech "news" and I found that they made an article about this.

And for me, if someone in the Czech republic realised that something is important enough to write an article about you either really made it or you created something ridiculous. Take your pick.

26/25 (104%) 5 stars.
EDIT: This masterpiece does now officially have a sequel with the brilliant, original Kissing the Coronavirus 2: The Second Wave. Do check it out, people, but I don’t think I will. My bucolic brain can only process one Nobel Prize-worthy book per year, and I’m also too scared that reading too much of these groundbreaking embodiments of brilliance will too heavily affect my own writing.

​ ‘Call me Covid,’ he said.

this book completely redefined love for me. the way the characters were written, the development of dr. gurtlychund and his relationship with alexa, the long quest to find the cure for cockbig-19, and the deep morals embedded inside the story were what made this so special to me. i hope everyone can appreciate the words inside these 16 pages, the multiple metaphors, the mention of penises in the third paragraph and the comparison of s

This might be the funniest thing I’ve ever read. It’s terrible, but my friend was right, I laughed in every paragraph.

Twitter made me do it!

If you need a good laugh, let me recommend these 16 pages of really, really badly written coronavirus erotica. And if you never thought those words would go together, neither did I! That said, while this is terrible, it's also kind of brilliant because the author is clearly self-aware of just how bad it is in a gallows humor sort of way. And it's the perfect length to get a laugh out of it without going too far. Let me share a few choice quotes....

Before my account was deleted, I had three separate shelves for this book and trash of its level.

They were labeled "ahahahahahahaha-what-the-fuck", "will-not-touch", and "trash-pile".

I'm too lazy to re-create those shelves, but rest assured that this book doesn't deserve that one star up there^^. That's just a placeholder.

I haven't read the book, if you were wondering. I don't have the mental stamina to do that. I've lost enough brain cells by seeing the title.

This is the best, worst thing I’ve ever read

Firstly, thank you Phuong for bringing this masterpiece to my attention. My life would not have been complete without it.

“She was supposed to cure the Coronavirus. Instead…she fell in love with it.”

This might be the best introduction to a book I’ve read. It makes absolutely no sense, yet complete sense. I basically laughed the entire time I read this novella.

Despite the devastation the virus was causing across the globe, Alexa felt the
