I think this book is really interesting. I am amazed at how well the Army controlled everything and handled the situation really well. The whole part about Rhonda totally freaked me out. They talked about how the virus broke out in the monkey house. It made me really sad when they had to euthanize all the monkeys. I am still terrified that the virus will get out somehow and become an epidemic in the US. I found the Armies way of making sure the monkey house was sterile and clean to be cool. It was amazing to me that someone could come in direct contact with the virus and not crash.  I’m really excited about the next part of the book.

This book is suspenseful. I am now officially scared of everything I touch. I wonder how we are going to control Ebola if we have an outbreak. Ebola is now airborne. I am ready to find out why the source of the virus has not been discovered. So what is the source. Where is the source. How do we keep Ebola from spreading all over. How do we control it. Im ready to continue ready an find out more.
