Not long from now, a virus will sweep the globe. Most will suffer no worse than flu-like symptoms, but an unlucky one percent will be changed forever. Hundreds of millions become “locked in”, awake, aware, but completely unable to control their bodies. This is the story of the doctors, scientists, engineers, politicians, and heroes who remade the world. It is the story of the chaotic outbreak, the fight for a cure, the changes that followed. It is an oral history, straight from the mouths of those who survived the most dynamic period in human history.

Review of 'Unlocked' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

Here we have a short story, a prequel to Scalzi's upcoming book Lock In. The story is written in interview form, where people explain the history of Haden's Syndrome and how people and the government reacted.
It was a quick read and I enjoyed reading about the research and innovation that came about in the wake of an epedemic. The story actually kind of reminded me of Surrogates and I, Robot and I'm already looking forward to the release of Lock In.
