Book Review – The Herd by Emily Edwards

books, reviews

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

Normally, I would expect to read at least 3 books when I’m on holiday but this year I only managed 2. That’s still a decent number for a week but I just had an idea of what I’d get through. Thankfully, I managed to finish this book, which was definitely something I needed to finish this week. Mostly because I doubted my ability to finish it during a work week. Which isn’t to say that I had low expectations for it. I was really excited to read this book because it felt so timely. The anti-vax movement has been around for ages but it was never more apparent than during the recent Covid pandemic. Especially with all of the fake science being shared on social media. Confirmation bias is one of the greatest problems facing society right now and I was really interested to see where this narrative would go.
