Though a recent movie version was eradicated due to Jodie Foster’s and Robert Redford’s defections, the Hot Zone book — a true story about a highly deadly and contagious African rain forest virus that sprang up in the ’80s — is thriving. The book debuted on the nonfiction chart at No. 10, with 210,000 copies in print after five press runs. And why shouldn’t it be a best-seller? Could there be anything more entertaining than a book about a filovirus that kills + nine out of 10 whom it infects — and in particularly excruciating and disgusting ways, too.
