      As per the rules of engagement, I received this book as part of a giveaway. This book tackles the weighty matters of the lack of preparedness for global pandemics, the death with dignity movement, corporate greed, and the ego of academia and business leaders. Dr. Groves did a wonderful job explaining the science of the matter to lay readers and giving them a glimpse at what the world has in store for them. The story is told via three main altering perspective (with an intertwined supporting cas [...]

      I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book about a timely issue, that of viruses in our world and the reaction of the bureaucracy in our health organizations. The themes in this story include: Hubris: characters in the book believed that they were above the law. Power: the industrialized countries held back vaccines because they thought the poorer nations were over populated anyway. Unexpected: there are many little things that affect the final outcome. You can choose your actions, but you can't cho [...]

      Good biomedical thriller that's relevant to our global society. Full review original posted hereI've already mentioned that I love when science and tv/movies collide. I don’t come across as many fictional books that have science at its core, but Virion is one of those. The novel is an epidemiological thriller with accidental bio-warfare…. I’m guessing that’s a new book genre. If you’ve watched the movie Contagion that came out in 2011, you can think of this book as almost the other sid [...]

      I received this book for free in a giveaway. I put off writing my review because I wanted a chance to read this book again thoroughly to get a detailed opinion of the story in its entirety.I really liked this story. I always like reading books like this because I want to go into the medical field and become a doctor, and this book revolves around influenzas that doctors have to deal with on a daily basis. From the first few pages when it describes in great detail how this virus killed and devas [...]

      I received this book as part of a giveaway.I really enjoyed 'Virion'; the book was a great read. Groves was able to effectively weave in some scientific information/details without getting too technical, which really helped to set the scene regarding the severity of an outbreak of this nature. I liked how the chapters and the In Vitro and In Vivio sections were divided, as well as the three separate stories that were going on simultaneously. It was very interesting to think of how events around [...]

      Virion is a fantastic story. Instead of concentrating on the world after a horrible outbreak this story concentrates on the beginning. More importantly it tells of the lives of the people who are influential to the study of the virus, and the people who make decisions that can either protect or fail the people they are suppose to protect. It is one of the few books I have read that does not make a horrible mess of different point of views. The author has done a great job of showing how connected [...]

      Action is fast-paced, and the main character, Dr. Ken Culp, is a fascinatingly complex, and tragic figure. Great read all the way to the end, or beginning, depending on your perspective.
