So I finally got my copy of Contagious over here in the UK and tonight I have stopped at the General Charlie Ogden chapter. I'm getting tired and need to sleep so I don't "miss" part of the book by sleep reading part of it (this is why I prefer Scott's Audio version, but needmy fix damit!)
Ok- so unless The FDO is pulling a new literay stunt, he's seemed to skip over a detail I want... How the heck is this physically being contagious?
Yes I understand the "smoochie", what I mean is until this point Sigler has gone into great detail on the transformation of the infection and the host. But all of the sudden we now have newly infected "Zombies" with no explinaton
It just seems confusing as the other people who may have become hosts of the crawlers died because their cells reached the end of the useful replication process. Yet once Chelsea kissed Mommy, her mommy was fine and even Old General Ogden was fine. What is happening to cause this? I mean shouldn't they break down too??
Now maybe I'll get that answer later in the book... I may just be too impatient. Obviously I prefer to hear from the great one himself for the answer- but anyone who has read the book- if the answer is in later chapters just say so. I don't need that spoiled...
But if it's not and the FDO's editors made him cut that info out... Tell thoses stupid SOB's to back off! That's NEEDED info to keep this story as grounded as possible!
And to the FDO.. can you answer me (again only if it's not in the book)...
