After reading part one of Hot Zone I found that the book was much more captivating than I originally thought it would be. I especially found the description of the  marburg virus process on the victims. I found the description of how marburg maimed the victims to be extremely interesting, in-depth and ultimately gory. The book helped me to learn about the floviruses including ebola and marburg and the way they kill their victims by causing them to hemorrhage uncontrollably. I also learned about black vomit as well as the many other orifices that bleed vast amounts because of the virus.
