Great book! Couldn't put it down. It was a tad confusing at first, but after a few chapters the story line was very engaging. It ended on a cliffhanger, so that was a disappointment!

Real rating: Hmm...4.25 stars? That seems about right.

OH MAN. “Contagion” felt to me like a mix of (what I’ve seen of) Aliens*, and Venom (which I didn’t even like all that much), and an original product of Bowman’s mind. Thrilling, jaw-dropping, and incredibly inventive, “Contagion” had me at the edge of my seat. Though it was the tiniest bit predictable in certain parts, the plot twists were astounding. The writing was chilling, and the world-building was spectacular. I’m very, very glad that I chose to read this book in the daytime.

Going off of that...no spoilers, but OH MY GOD THAT CLIFFHANGER. Now that I’m finished, I’m anxious to see what happens next. But...of course, I’ll probably have to wait another few years for the sequel, as I will with countless others. Sigh...

*By “what I’ve seen of it”...well, long story short, I chickened out.

I loved this one so much. It took me a hot second to get used to jumping from character to character, but ultimately getting the different perspectives added to the story. I feel like if you liked Illuminae, then you'll like this one also.

HALLELUJAH FOR AN INCREDIBLE SCIFI NOVEL.

That's a 3 hour read time, folks, because I could NOT put this book down. Thrilling and delightfully twisty, and I can't wait for the sequel. Reminiscent of Illuminae in some ways, which made me even happier.

This is an incredibly gripping science fiction mystery that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it! I would especially recommend it for fans of the Illuminae Files series.
