Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It’s an interesting notion that an epidemic might hit the first world much harder than anywhere else, leaving Asia and Africa to try to help survivors in Europe and North America.

Enfys has a strong voice, and reading their flippant accounts of what they see is the biggest pleasure of the story.

Con: There’s no real plot to speak of—this story is almost entirely about the setting.
