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.
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).
