book umps around between narratives in the Middle East and the US as well as shorter narratives by short livedjumps around between narratives in the Middle East and the US as well as shorter narratives by short lived who come into contact with the disease The sections set in Ira and Iran focused much on the history of Kurdistan and the atrocities suffered during Saddam s years in power than on chasing down a treatment for the disease This in itself was fascinating But there were times when it would ump to a chapter about another body being found and I d go Oh RIGHT Plague thingyThat said I thoroughly enjoyed it The various narratives fit together well and it s easy to relate to the characters There were numerous similarities to the world today America is under the leadership of its first African American president the war in Afghanistan is dragging on etc etc The story was fast paced and filled with intrigue My one issue with it would be that the reason behind the outbreak is left unresolved Yes they discover how people were becoming infected But nothing than that Despite that I liked this book a lot Good thriller The plot definitely kept me reading I had higher hopes for this book I enjoy a good disease ridden pandemic be it man made nature run astray on purpose or accidental However this book kind of lacked overall and I m fuzzy on exactly how this deadly strain was created take one part real disease and one part packaging error And this wasn t picked up on during the trial testing by the FDA The story umped back and forth on points of view between those with the disease very briefly those at home fighting it somewhat those overseas searching for a scientist somewhat and the history of the Middle East their wars people and atrocities lots of info There was even their wars people and atrocities lots of info There was even hint of a budding romance Ho hum I often forgot what the plot was oh yeah flesh eating disease What a crappy book I thought this was some kind of post apocalyptic fiction but instead it was a romance mixed with Kurdistan propagandaIt was bad in every way The plot was crappy at best So basically there is some kind of virus that kills very uickly and umps pretty uickly between persons There is not a hint of how it happens but a person which is behind bars for a lot of time might help Thus enter our main protagonist that in a couple of minutes already makes her talk when in the previous 5 years she said no word Then he discovers pretty uickly that she wasn t the person who they thought she was What a crapFrom this moment on it begins a romance and he totally believe hers 5m of knowing her which her The Janus Effect is a good read It is interesting with a well developed story line The characters are realistic and believable Knowing very little of Kurdistan recent history I found the ravaging of this country appall.
