Influenza:Strain Z by Matt Shaw

This is the story of Adam, he is taken ill suddenly and after that his life will never be the same again. The illness takes hold with frightening speed and his family and girlfriend realise he isn't just faking it for a sick day, and fear for his life.

This was influenced by the authors recent run in with a bout of man flu. it was funny, and sad and quite dark in places. It is only a short story so a quick read but the descriptions and writing make you feel like you are suffering along with Adam. Sometimes I wonder what goes on the author's head to keep producing writing like this, but it works and is thoroughly enjoyable for that.
