The Hot Zone

The Hot Zone

—4—

The Hot Zone by Richard Preston is a terrifying true story about an Ebola virus outbreak in a D.C. laboratory. The virus is incredibly infectious, and results in a horrendous, rapid death.

This book is frightening because it is a true story, because the incident had potential to be much worse, and because it shows how vulnerable we are to sudden, unstoppable pandemics.
