This is Book 2 of The Peeling, each book is the story of a different survivor so this one is different from the first. The thing I like about these books is the way they are written. They’re believable and Iain brings across the trauma of this illness really well.
As I said before you can get these books separately but you can also get them as one here;
These books are real page turners and as short stories they are something you can sit down and read over a cup of coffee or on a train journey.
I think what makes these books, for me, so realistic is that if a flesh-eating virus did break out on this level, it would spread because we’re great at healing the simple things but give us something new and unknown and we’d just panic. Necrotizing Faciitis is a flesh-eating disease which affects the deeper levels of skin and subcutaneous tissue. So like I said, it’s possible!
If you’re squeamish you may want to look away now, these are images of Necrotizing Faciitis for those interested. Think about Iain Rob Wright’s description of the peeling.
Not for the weak stomach…
