A book that I had to read in 7th grade turned out to be a great book! It is a medical thriller about and Ebola Outbreak that has a twisted end. A must read.

Read this book in the 1980's when it was first published and it was just as thrilling a read now. Outbreak deals with the issue of deadly viruses and was filled with action and intrigue. The characters were well developed. Well edited. A real page turner. Robin Cook is one of the best medical thriller writers out there. His books are timeless. Read one of his books and you'll be hooked. They always leave you thinking: what if.............

I had to read this book for my 8th grade science project and LOVED it! It has plenty of excitement, and a great plot! The end of the story takes quite a twist. You'll never guess...

This book is one of the best Ive ever read. I do not read books that often but I reccomend this book to anyone. this will keep you guessing until the very end. I say it is for anyone that has the time for the reason that it is a tad long but you should read it any way.

From the start to the finish of Outbreak I found myself trapped in it's storyline only wanting to learn more. The mystery kept you on your toes while the accurate description of the disease made you hold your stomach. I loved the book, and was a bit saddened when I got to the end. It's a kind of book that you really don't want to see end. I highly recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good mystery suspense. It's a very good book.

This book was scary and page-turning. I couldn't put it down far into the night. It was action packed with many unexpected twists and turns. The whole medical aspect of the story kept me interested the whole time and the book didn't have a lot of medical jargon to confuse me. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves medical mysteries!!!

it was so thrilling. I couldn't put it down. It was the first Robin Cook book i've read, but it certainly wont be the last.

I throughly enjoy reading Robin Cook's books and so far Outbreak has been at the top of my list. Once I started, I could not put it down until I had read the whole book. As someone who is in the medical profession, I found that the book had quite a bit of interesting information about virology.

This is the most terrifying book I have ever read in my entire life. I enjoyed every bit of it and Robin Cook, the master of medical thrillers has certainly added an extra touch of magic that none of his other novels have.

I have never read R.Cook's books before, but after i have read this one, i ran looking for others. This book took me by surprise as a very grasping, interesting and unpredictable novel! I realized that one doesn't have to be interested in medicine in order to understand how many things work in the field. Thrilling, mind-stimulating, informative....it's got it all!

I watched the movie in my Genetics class a few weeks ago. I found it impossible to take my eyes away from the movie at any point. The scary part is, our government has entire labs devoted to biological eeapons like Motaba. We could become guinea pigs at any moment. Any human disease can mutate and becoe resistant to our efforts to eradicat it. These bugs have been around for billions of years. Humans have only been here for a million, at best. Earth is not ours, it belongs to the bugs. For many years, humans have worked together in a futile effort to eradicate disease around the world. Every effort has, at the time, been deemed a success. Now, the diseases are returning in forms we have not yet learned to control. It is a cycle we can never break. Controlling them to save lives is pointless. We are seven billin in number. Earth is overpopulated with humans. It is time natural selection brings us to heel. But what do we do? We deny that we are products of natural selection and pure chance. When an animal kills a human, we kill the animal, purely to save our perfect little world.
