This portion of the book was very thrilling. When Jahrling and Geisbert were smelling the flask, I knew something eventful was coming up. The time that they both spent wondering if they might have been infected with something was very intense. Everything with Jerry and Nancy was also very interesting, especially the mentioning of jerry’s brother John’s murder. I wonder if the murder case was ever solved. I also, in the back of my mind, felt sorrow for all the dead monkeys. If I learned anything from this part it was to be extra careful when around potentially harmful biological substances. I’m curious to whether Nancy or Jerry will reappear in the book and if a similar problem like the one in this section reappears, if not the same problem.
