This was a tremendous disappointment. The first 3rd was sooooo promising. But this book reminded me so much of MAD MAX:BEYOND THUNDERDOME. The story shifted too much and the bulk of the book was spent on a group of really mediocre indistinguishable characters. I hold out hope that the proposed 2nd and 3rd books in the trilogy can capitalize on the potential of the beginning of this story. Heartbreaking.
This is so much better. Mayberry is quickly becoming my go-to author. These books are wierd...very military meets zombies...but scientifically sound as far as explaining the zombification as a genetic mutation/plague. Overall, it makes you wonder how far governments will go as far as genetic warfare.
And apparently the Joe Ledger books have been optioned for a tv show.
So it is summer so it is time to read some entertaining, if not far fetched stuff. So I just finished while on my fishing trip in Alaska no less:
And have decided to read Alt3n's follow-up:
A little cheesy but worth a read if you are looking for pure entertainment.
I have never read read this before and I decided that I should.
Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
when talking about books that we last enjoyed, i forgot to mention that i'm about the dive back into my Haruki Murakami collection and thought that if you hadn't read either Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World or The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, do yourself a BIG favor.
i personally think Murakami is one of the most gifted writers or our generation.
