The Plague: Civilization’s Near Self Destruction by Don Lubov (Book Review #581)

The Plague is a science fiction story about a reporter investigating suspicious deaths that begin to happen randomly but then start showing up as a patterned event. David Miller begins his research from his own area, and then the investigation expands. The story is set in 2040 and robots to live amongst the living. As David proceeds to understand the situation a little, he realizes that the selection of deaths is not random, and that is when the story takes an exciting turn.

The story also focuses on Dave overcoming his own personal issues and problems. He is claustrophobic, has some insecurities, and does not trust himself being a good reporter. I believe that added a personal touch to the story. The writing keeps you intrigued, trying to understand what is behind the events happening at all times. The mass panic was also captivating.


The literature was well written. As a sci-fi novel, it needed to have enough scientific content, and the story provided just that. The pace of the storyline was steady and kept the interested up until the end. I particularly enjoyed the person added touches that were blended with the story. I considered the fact of how confusing it would have been if an epidemic happened with no common cause or revelations that anyone would be used to solving. Trying to identify the cause and finding a solution would be so hard.


I recommend this book to people who enjoy sci-fi novels and stories about robots.
