Finished Plague Year [2/18/2008]

Without 24 this season, I have been craving action and suspense. Plague Year delivered. For me it was a gripping story and didn't have any labored or unnecessary scenes. The writing style was neither too flowery nor too choppy.

I think Cam's character was almost comforting, like Jack, strong and steady. He provided the needed weight to balance out Ruth's rockiness. She was a bit annoying in parts.

I think this book proves it's possible to write a nanotech-gone-wrong themed book that doesn't end up sounding like it's preaching bio-Luddite fanaticism. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
