The Cure
by Ken Peters

Overview


Once, Africa belonged to the families that resided in Her vast lands. She belonged to the people who grew in the shadow of Kilimanjaro to the fertile plains of the Serengeti. By the late 20th century, Africa's minerals, crops, and oil was being ripped from the soil and sold across the world leeching European industrialists. The tribal culture was no longer a fit for the urban world as a man could no longer measure his wealth by the number of cows he owned but instead, he began to measure his wealth by the number of children he sired. With promiscuity in the emerging cities and industrial human encroachment into the bush, so came the dreaded HIV virus. A company in South Africa develops a vaccine, but when a plot is hatched by a Group of Six Old World European Families to change the vaccine and cripple the continent, Africa is on the brink of another catastrophe.

The Cure - really uniquely written, love it so far! I just started reading this amazing work and it really caught my interest! I lived in Southern Africa for a while, therefore it’s even more interesting for me to read this book. HIV posed a deadly threat to the African continent and it continues to be one of the top five leading causes of death in Africa. This novel seems to unite scientific and fictional story-telling in a really unique way. I can’t wait to read the rest of this book and see how the story ends, I’ll be back with my final review! :) Read more
