12.21: A Novel By Dustin Thomason Review

12.21:

A Novel

By Dustin Thomason

Chel, a young Guatemalan American researcher of Maya studies, is soon called upon by Dr. Gabriel Stanton the foremost expert of the incurable prion diseases after a priceless codex is brought to America unleashing a powerful disease. The two must band together before it becomes too late and the entire population is wiped out.

 12.21: A Novel

I am not quite a believer of the Mayan end of the world craze that is going around lately; to me it’s another millennium scare if you were around for that one you know what I mean. But this novel is an interesting take on the idea of the world coming to an end. It reminds me of the quote from T.S. Elliot “This is the way the world ends Not with a bang but a whimper.” Everyone keeps thinking something extraordinary is going to happen but what if it is the same thing we all fear, a new form of sickness that cannot be stopped. With every turn of the page you keep your fingers crossed as the story goes on that they will soon find a cure. If you are into the medical suspense/drama genre I would definitely recommend checking this one out.
