Meh. This fell flat for me. I like a supernatural read but there were too many slick coincidences in this to uphold any kind of suspense. Onwards and upwards, first #bookspin of 2021 done!!
The first half of this novel had me confused. I was under the impression it was about a spirit and had nothing to do what so ever about a virus.. But then it started to come together it really impressed me! I feel a few things were left without answers though which disappointed me but nevertheless it was a fantastic read! I didn't expect what happened to Danny in the slightest! This would make an ace film as long as they don't change anything!
#ReadYourSign @Meaw_catlady prompt-Book with spirit color=Blue Tina lost her son in a school bus accident, she felt something was wrong in that accident. What she discovered sounds like what we are living with COVID-19, too similar😱1st part of book was so interesting followed by pure action. But I was not prepared to find ESP, maybe that's why it was a so-so reading for me. Last part so interesting due to the similarities with COVID-19👍 3⭐️
My mother got swept up in the hype about this book predicting COVID19, and since I've been trying my entire adult life to get her into reading, I couldn't not take advantage 🤷🏽♀️ I bought the book on audio for her and we're doing our first ever buddy read. I just hope it doesn't unhinge her conspiracy theory tendencies 😅
That said, I'm really into how the mystery is building! I don't read a lot of thrillers, but I'm digging this one.
He did not predict the coronavirus. When it was written in 1981, it was called Gorki-400 because it had been created in Russia. It was made to be used for biological warfare. It has a 100% mortality rate and only humans can carry it. It cannot live outside a host for more than a minute. Its incubation period is about 4 hours. Death is within 12 hours of contamination. It was changed to Wuhan-400 in 1989 toward the end of the Cold War.
