I like how this book describes vampirism has the cure, to something even worse. It can read somewhat like a biology text book at times other wise it's great, and all the biology adds dimention to the book. Cal our tour guide is on the search to find every girl he's ever had sex with, in hopes to compell them to get treatment for the rare std he's contracted. Things start to get wierd when he finds people purposefully spreading his condition. Great book all in all.
This book had a really good plot and i knew i had to read it because scott westerfeld is one of my favorite authors. Peeps is about Cal who is forced to live a life as a carrier for a deadly parasite. The parasite invades your body and makes you hate things you loved and forces you into a life of cannibalism and darkness. Peeps (people with the parasite) are all over and its Mile's job to make them better. Miles is a carrier of the parasite but is able to control his urges. He can't however ever kiss or be with a girl because that is how the parasite is passed. Miles struggles with this fact the most when he meets Lace, a curious journalist who will stop at nothing until she knows what is really going on. I learned a lot about parasites, sometimes more that i wanted to.
