Short Story Collection Surrounding a Deadly Virus
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 2, 2023
This book is a collection of short stories about some aspect of the same topic. This is a speculative science fiction about a virus that primarily effects children. Organs mutate into other organs and the only thing sustaining the children over the long term is organ transplants.
This feels chilling and post apocalyptic. We meet so many people from this world and and different time through the illnesse's mutations. We see the experimental treatments that accompany the viruses mutation. We see a theme park where terminal kids go to die on a roller coaster. We meet the parents who survived their children. We meet the lonely workers who have to function in this society.
This is one of those books that gave me a ton of mixed emotions when I read it and now the story survives very strongly in my mind. It is both haunting and captures the scope of humanity. This hits different after living through a world wide pandemic.
I really loved how different this was.
