Book Review: Contagion by Erin Bowman

Numbers and data made sense, but people were impossible

I am confused about Contagion. It was an interesting story, but I thought it didn’t come out right. It was pretty predictive and made me feel like I knew where it was going to end.

It got in us

After receiving an urgent SOS from a work detail on a distant planet, a skeleton crew is dispatched to perform a standard search-and-rescue mission.

Most are dead.

But when the crew arrives, they find an abandoned site, littered with rotten food, discarded weapons…and dead bodies.

Don’t set foot here again.

As they try to piece together who—or what—could have decimated an entire operation, they discover that some things are best left buried—and some monsters are only too ready to awaken.

I give Contagion by Erin Bowman three out of five hearts because I didn’t like it as much. The story didn’t come out as well as it could be. The story is a little predictive and really didn’t make me want to keep reading because I felt I already knew where it was going to end.

The constant and sudden switching of pov gave me a headache. And the characters aren’t very memorable. I have finished this book three days ago and have already forgotten what they were called. After some research, I got to figure out that some of them where called Thea, Nova, Dylan and they all had their own issues, but they were so similar I had issues keeping them straight.

I did like the mystery and horror aspects of it. But because of the predictability, these aspects were mostly overshadowed by the fact that I could see a lot of the twists coming before they happened. I wished it could be less predictable.
