"Parasite" (a squirmish Lexi review)

Dear Readers,

You guys are awesome, reading our blog and sharing us with your friends!!! We really appreciate it!!!

Okay, today's book is Parasite by Mira Grant.

Summary: "A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite - a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system - even secretes designer drugs. It's been successful beyond the scientists' wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.
But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives...and will do anything to get them." (Toda, Goodreads!)

All I can really say is that this book is very interesting, but it took a little bit to get into. I do like it, and this idea is amazing to think about! I mean, a parasite that helps us??? How cool would that be!?!?! I really liked the medical view of this novel, and how creepy the idea of a tapeworm is, lol. I also like the relationships, and the twists that this novel takes, so I say read it!

In Conclusion: Read if you can take it.


4/5 parasites

Till next time!!!
