A 5 💫 review for ’The Afflicted’ by Andy Strutt.
Thrilling, Educating and Humorous!
A gripping read, Andy Strutt combines technical knowledge and experience of the pharmaceutical industry, with warmth and flashes of humour, as an outbreak of a frightening illness takes prosperous and laid-back Sussex to its knees.
The author’s style matches that of the book’s hero: sharp and intelligent, yet generous enough to keep you in the picture – motivated by love and enthusiasm for the subject matter: biology, epidemiology – and as any self-respecting novelist subtexts in sociology and psychology… The withering contempt expressed for the villains will make you chuckle. This book is like an evening spent at the pub with the most interesting person you know: the story moves fast and the devastation is total, but you’ll remember the thrills and spills long after the ravages are over!
I wish I had a colleague like John Simmons. I’m glad we have an author like Andy Strutt.’ E.J. Akhurst.
