Parasite (Parasitology Volume One)

Parasite - Mira Grant Another fun futuristic vaguely sciency thriller from Grant Following her (mostly) very good Newsflesh triogy. The big reveal of this volume which occurs at the end of the book, I had figured out a 100 pages in. It seems only Grant's stubborness to confirm my strong suspicions prevented an earlier reveal. There were plenty of suprises and a good plot, although in the service of "realistic" dialog, there was a lot of repititious banter. As for the science of it, I know little to nothing about parasitology or epidemiology so I have to go on pure feel here and nothing sounds too far removed from the stretchy realm of "plausablility". I leave it others with stonger scientific backgrounds to determine if too many liberties have been taken in the name of a pretty good story.
