This morning, while we slept, something woke up. It’s virulent. Malign. Intelligent. Ambitious. It’s in our food, our water, our air. It’s inside our bodies themselves. And it’s not leaving. We are.

I had this book in paperback format & loaned it to a friend, but never got it back. When I purchased my nook, this was one of the first books I searched for. It's an excellent read, fast-paced & very thought-provoking about the crap we pump into our environment (no I am not a greenie-weenie, either) and the crap we pump into our bodies. It has been about 5 years since I read this book, but caught myself thinking about it, every so often. I would also look for it anytime I was in any bookstore, with no luck. If you like the splatterpunk genre & haven't read this book, do yourself a favor and buy it. This is one of those books that stays with you long after you've turned the last page.

Boonie and his friends are just the first ones to find out that the answer to the above question is: "Not Pleased." And that's an understatement. They've decided that it's a good idea to just go ahead and cut corners, dumping a load of barrels off of a bridge into the water below. But the water has had enough of being fed these kinds of materials, rising up to share its displeasure with the men on the bridge. But just to show there's no lasting grudge with them personally, the force driving this attack takes them in. Makes them feel at home. Brings them along to help spread the gospel: "The earth is mad as Hell and she's not gonna take it anymore." This is eco-horror as only Skipp & Spector can deliver. And man, does this book deliver. The debate rages on global warming, just one issue in a bigger picture. No matter where one stands on Al Gore, one can't ignore the sad fact that a great deal of disrespect toward our planet has been shown through the decades. This book shows us what could happen if she just threw up her hands one day and said, "That's it. I've had enough. It's time to pay." What would we do about it? Would there be anything that could stand in the way of her vengeance? Read "The Bridge", by John Skipp & Craig Spector, to find out. And be nice to Mother Nature...
