A local scientist discovers this new virus that cures many, including her own mother's end stage cancer. She holds a press conference in concert with the other scientists she works with, and true to form, media and too the general population not only come up with a catch all name (Eternity Plague), but only latch on to the "cure illness" and "Eternity" (eternal life for all!). We see this daily in the news, people latching on to a segment of a story and running with it, forgetting the rest of the story!
True to "human" interactions and reactions, the fanatics, the politicians, religious left/right, protesters (both sides) come out in force! Oh, and don't forget the conspiracy theorists! This book through its author shows a perfect example of "You're damned if you do, you're damned if you don't!"
Will be starting book 2 "Chrysalis" today. Can't wait!!! Excellent read so far! Thanks!!!!
If you are fan of Michael Crichton's work, you'll enjoy this. I highly recommend it.
I enjoy the science fiction genre. This was particularly intriguing because it's about the discovery of a series of viruses that result in immortality. No more cancer or illnesses that result in death. An intriguing idea, certainly. But a person can still die at another's hands or in an accident. The book considers the ramifications of living forever, and it's not utopia.
The author has a second book coming out as a continuance of this story. When I read a sequel was in the works, I found myself reading a bit slower to savor the last pages. Each individual character is believable with his/ her own motives, and I was sorry to say good-bye for a while.
I anxiously await the second book.
The book examines a wide variety of views about this new world situation. Is the Eternity Plague a miracle or a curse? Will it save the world or destroy it? Can humanity work together and survive? Every opposing view affects the scientific team studying the viruses, sometimes in violent ways.
I enjoyed reading The Eternity Plague and found it very thought-provoking. The story (and the questions it poses) has stuck with me even after I finished reading. To me, that's the mark of a good book.
