The Nirvana Plague (English Edition) Formato Kindle
A bizarre illness spreads through a Chicago psychiatric hospital. Dr Carl Marley, a bored but ambitious psychiatrist, seizes the chance to grab some attention by “discovering” the new disorder. But when an Army colonel summons him to a government-sponsored taskforce to investigate the syndrome, he learns the disease he thought he’d discovered is already so widespread in the military that it threatens to undermine the foundations of power. A high-stakes race to understand the disease takes the team from the NIH campus in Bethesda, to a war zone in the Kashmiri highlands, to a high-tech biodefense facility near Juneau, Alaska.
As the outbreak spreads around the globe and desperate governments impose increasingly severe measures to contain it, Marley begins to suspect that what is happening is not the apocalypse they fear — but something far more radical. Marley’s star patient, a brilliant but profoundly psychotic scientist named Roger Sturgeon, escapes from the facility into the city, and Marley attempts to bring him back before the government sends in troops. Only then does he learn the truth about what is happening.
Before it’s over they will all be forced to choose between the precarious comfort of the world they know and the mysterious wonder of a new reality — between their commonplace fears, ambitions, and loyalties, or the hope that lies in The Nirvana Plague.

Set in a not very distant future, when the United States and much of the world is perpetually at war, when all the reports on the constant news feed are bad, and the cities are blacked out at night, the main characters struggle with their own despair and then find themselves caught up in a larger conflict. There are some interesting themes depicted in the book, including the question of whether mankind can be totally happy, and if so, what other characteristics of our human nature would we have to give up to reach that happiness?
I was completely overwhelmed reading the book because, while I know my friend as a highly intelligent and thoughtful person, I had no idea he had the writing skills to create such a well-constructed, unique piece of work! Sure, I knew he wrote, but a good novel is an accomplishment. If I did not know Gary, I would absolutely purchase this and read it again. The characters are well developed and the plot moves along at a clip and kept me wondering where I was headed. Highly recommended.
