I read this in the anthology Black Water
The short stories are pretty sad/sick with the victims having a horrible story. This fit right in. I loved that the bad guys didn't get away.
Re-read by audiobook
|I previously read the paperback book in January of 2012. This time I listened to the audiobook.
This book felt completely different than when I read the paperback. I ended up really enjoying it which is great considering I gave it 2 stars. I liked it so much the second time around I already ordered the next book from the library - so there!
Previous review: This book kind of dragged for me and I found I had a hard time finishing it. Georgia "George" Mason and her brother Shaun are professional bloggers which has turned into a legitimate job after a virus has made every person and large animal who dies into a zombie. When the normal news media told everyone it was a hoax, the bloggers gave real information and warnings. George writes news stories and Shaun does shock type blogs filming himself teasing and killing the zombies and their friend Buffy is the technician and also a poet with her own blog. Their group is chosen to be part of the press for a presidential campaign which has given them legitimacy. The only problem is someone is sabotaging the campaign and people are dying and thus becoming zombies. There's a betrayal in this that I still don't understand the reason behind. It didn't make sense to me. So instead of being shocked I was thinking "What?" Also a very sad event takes place and being a natural crier, I was surprised I wasn't really moved. The book drags in places, but when I noted the amount of pages it really didn't drag long however I just couldn't get into to it. The concept was good, but it didn't really deliver for me. I'm in the minority though so my review should be taken with a grain of salt.
I never thought I'd say out loud (well in my head actually) that I like Hugh. He was such a dick in the Kate Daniels' series that I didn't think it would happen.
I loved that two people who are so "different" can find someone that will take them as-is. Can't wait to read more about this couple (well I did already because I read the last Kate Daniels' book and they were in it but you know what I mean).
I enjoyed this book except for a just a few things.
1) Jane is running around in the morning saving people, goes to the hotel & changes, then immediately off to someone else, and then before she can get to her hotel another emergency. I know they somewhat converge at the end but it was still too much (in my opinion).
2) Beast is all about killing enemies, ripping out their throats, but then does an about face toward the end of the book. I didn't understand this change in her opinion.
3) So if Rick SPOILER [has sex with anyone the Grindie (sp?) will kill him?]
But beyond the above, very good book, very good narrator. I'm planning on working my way through the entire series.
