Westerfeld, Scott. Peeps. NY: Razorbill/Penguin, 2005.
narrator: first-person, Cal
Pretty good. I like the alternating chapters on parasites. That’s a cool idea. Not sure if it’s Cal talking, but I guess it’s supposed to be him. Not sure it sounds like him. Not sure it matters. Kinda weird reading this after Code Orange, because all the virus/mutation/infection stuff started to blend together. Both books even share mention of the same historical figure: Typhoid Mary. Now, I’ve GOT to read Octavia Butler’s Fledgling. I know she’ll do something unexpected and insightful with the vampire trope.
