Finally, an Update!

  • Okay, I'm sorry I haven't updated lately, I've been super-busy. I had a dumb 'ole chem test and 2 labs this week...
  • But anyways, a post:
  • Okay, so I've been doing some reading! I know. Me, reading a book, what? I told you guys I was reading:
  • Level 4: Virus Hunters of the CDC
  • Well, now I've finished it. I didn't like it so much at first, it seemed choppy and hard to follow. But once I looked at it as a narritive rather than a novel (which is something I'm more used to reading) it was easier to follow. I liked it. I would recomend it to anyone interested in learin about virology, the history of viruses or treating diseases in rural Africa.
  • I've also just finished reading:
  • Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
  • I loved this book! It was recomended to me by one of my readers, and I have to say thank you very much! I really really enjoyed this one. I saw Blade Runner a few years ago, and it didn't make a whole lot of sense to me then, but the book was fantastic. I think it really had something to say about the fine line between actual human life and biotechnology.
  • There was one scene in the book where the android Pris kills a spider by cutting its legs off with a pair of scissors. It really got to me. I just sat there staring at the page for a while, wondering why it bothered me so much. I've killed hundreds of spiders in my life, but I've never been that cruel.
  • Anyway, I recomend this one to everyone, and thank you again to the reader who recomended it for me!
