This is one of the best stories I ve read The Patron Saint of Plagues in this genre Although there were times when I felt a little lost in the medical information, I appreciate that Barth Anderson didn t insult my intelligence by over explaining There were some interesting twists and turns, and, although a good ending, it wasn t a feel good ending There were also some interesting philosophical and political statements.
I m torn in my opinion of this book The Patron Saint of Plagues While the plot was interesting in many places, there were others in which the story was brought almost to a halt by dreams and characters thinking about their pasts that seemed to have nothing to do with the overall story The premise of a futuristic world had some good qualities however, I believe it would have worked better to have given that basic history and the technological information at the very beginning Without that information, I was lost until I m torn in my opinion of this book The Patron Saint of Plagues While the plot was interesting in many places, there were others in which the story was brought almost to a halt by dreams and characters thinking about their pasts that seemed to have nothing to do with the overall story The premise of a futuristic world had some good qualities however, I believe it would have worked be
