This is the BEST bio-terrorist novel I've read. The plot is well developed and the characters are very believable. The story is scarry but could have been yanked right from today's headlines. This one's not for the worryworts.

I found this book interestingly good. I really disliked all of the self-cannibalism and details of the gruesome deathes, but it added to the suspense at the end. Once I got to the last part, I couldn't put the book down! The book is kind of disturbing and I've had bad dreams thanks to it, but overall I think it was well written and a good read.

Gripping suspense. Very graphic in some parts. I enjoyed the novel and would recommend it as it was a real page turner. If you are a fan of Hot zone, Outbreak, contagion , this book is a can't miss .

I find it hard to stay focused on a book. But Richard Prestons "The Cobra Event" I thought was very intringuing the way they tied the characters together in the end. The virus in the book is ultimately frightening and a you learn a lot about other diseases and the way cells in the human body re-act. All Out-VERY GOOD!

This is my favorite medical thriller. It's so good, every time I see it in stores, I want to buy it again. I've read it three times, and it still hasn't gotten old. A terrifyingly good read.

This is a good story, very close to real world issues. However there is a lot of kind of educational background info that nearly made me just quit. Because while I am an educated, intelligent person, I chose this book as with others to relax and enjoy a story. I like to read all types of material, not just fiction. But when I choose fiction, I do not want to wade thru a lot of "teaching" material. I understand why he included it in his book and that is why I hung in there to the final word. So if you are looking for a nice crime drama or thriller that does not tax your brain, then pass this by. If you are an educated person interested in this subject that likes a truly thinking experience, go for it.

Good storyline but way too many historical fact breaks, it separates the story into too many parts.

Thought this would be a great medical thriller but it ended up reading like a textbook. While trying to give the reader background information, the author ended up writing chapters that made me feel like there would be a test at the end. The details were necessary but read more like a non-fiction textbook.

It was a good thriller. The parts that followed the story were very good and I wanted to read more. I only had problems when it went into other detailed stories or explanations that I just had to skip because they interrupted the main story.

Loved it!! I read this book twice just in case I missed something the first time!! Preston really did his homework on this one. He sure knows how to keep his readers attention. I stayed up all night to finish this book to wake up looking like the cover!!
