I didn't start this blog as a book review spot, but I decided that if I read a good one, why not blog about it? Who knows, maybe someday somebody will write a review of my book.

Robert Liparulo is one of my new favorite authors, germ, is the second of his books I read, Comes A Horseman was the first. If you like sit on the edge of your chair I can't put this book down stories, then this book is for you. It has the Walk seal of approval on it and I don't give that out just for fun.

Taken from his website, (I hope that's OK Mr. Liparulo):
"Imagine a virus that spreads as a common cold, until it finds a DNA strand that matches the one encoded within it—until it finds the one person it's looking for. Then it turns brutally lethal. No one is safe. If you breathe, it will find you. To prove it, the germ's creator targets ten thousand victims: politicians, housewives, children. Only three people can possibly stop it—if they survive long enough."
My interest was grabbed in the opening and never left until the last word. It is one of those books that make you wonder if it is really fiction or not. The characters are well defined and the books moves from one scene to another effortlessly.

A friend interviewed Mr. Liparulo for her review blog and said how nice a man he was, easy to talk with and just generally a good ole boy. It was by her recommendation that I started reading Mr. Liparulo.

His last book, Deadfall, lies patiently waiting for me to pick it up and start digesting it. I have two other books ahead of it, maybe by the end of the summer I'll have a review of it.
