Day 31 - #IfYouLikedThis #Contagion

#YoullLikeThisBook - #Lockdown

Peter May is one of my favorite authors. He wrote this book in 2005 set in London, about a global pandemic. It was a city in total lockdown. A virus was claiming thousands of lives. The scenario described wasn‘t drawn from his imagination. It was based on detailed pandemic planning done by both the British and the Americans in the early 2000s. Nobody thought it would come true.

Klou Wow, sounds good. Great choice! Thank you for playing along this month!! 2y
EadieB @Klou You're welcome! It was lots of fun! 2y

Reading about the effects of this #Contagion was fascinating. (Bonus point because it references Voyager?)

jmtrivera Now that I think about it, I'm also pretty sure this was the first book I posted about on Litsy. 4y
Megabooks I love this book! Nice choice. 👍🏻🖖🏻 4y
LiterRohde One of my favorite books. 4y

Another TNG episode I had to rewatch to refresh my memory. Fairly forgettable, interesting mystery I guess, although I never really felt like the Enterprise was in any real danger.

The Andromeda Strain | Michael Crichton
post image

In #Contagion TNG epi 3.11 we learn Picard is an archeologist, Iconians could cross light-years as easily as we cross a room, computer viruses are bad, and Starfleet doesn‘t practice network prophylactics. Also featuring Toronto‘s City Hall.

As such, the only Michael Crichton book I like is The Andromeda Strain. Again, as with all his books, the film is better (the 1st film, 1971; the 2008 film is baaaaaaad).

gradcat Very cool post 😎! 4y
Megabooks Love these facts! Timeline is my favorite Crichton, but I enjoyed The Andromeda Strain as well. Never seen either movie, though. 4y
tournevis @Megabooks Andromeda is a fine medical thriller with a side of body horror and the first movie is slow and oppressive, just like the book. The second movie is action adventure horror with a nonsense romantic plot, and no about of Benjamin Bratt looking fine can compensate. 4y
Megabooks I think any movie that can be made into an action movie is. Up next The Perks of Being a Wallflower...with Guns! (First inappropriate movie that came to mind. 😂😂) 4y
