Everything...Voice the Narrator is portraying, Attitude, Presentation,
The fact that the Characters, and the entire world perception of the events around her gives an heir of Competence terrifies me. The amount of things that run through my mind that COULD happen in many of these instances seem to not enter into this reality....Its kind of like when you know enough to recognize that life is a balance of factors such as Hesitation, Variation, and Unpredictability that Murphy's Law truly shines in ways you never thought possible, and this is by no means a Closed system because Murphy is an Itch..
The descriptive writing of some aspects was spot on, but it doesn't have that practicality of a more fluid Sandbox of possibility I expect in Zombie Fiction.
So I'm not so much criticizing Frater's writing outright,
I've written about 30 pages of a Pseudo Zombie Fiction about a year ago, and its unlikely I'll ever finish it but I had fun and it was something Original, but I just don't have the energy to bring it to fruition, and there in I must give high praise to Rhiannon Frater.
So seeing that Frater has continued on to write as many books as she has is a testament to her resolve... but I just don't enjoy being around this set of Characters because Socially they are the kind of people that frankly make me want to claw my eyes out, and I'm sure the feeling would be mutual.
They just annoy me. *_*
I think the Narrator did her duty.
Just about everyone of them because they annoyed the heck out of me. To give an example one character that didn't annoy me was Allison Hewitt, but seeing as Rhiannon Frater didn't write about Allison Hewitt sadly she need not apply. *_*
The book started off interestingly enough. Continued rather well. And then when Katie and Jenny hooked up with other survivors it kind of went downhill. Suddenly these two women, who incidentally weren't really playing with a full deck emotionally, considering the circumstances they just endured, walk in like they're taking over. Should you decide to read the story, you will understand the reference to the sexual preference. One is heterosexual and the other appears to be bisexual, but everybody thinks she's a lesbian. She would prefer everyone to continue to think that for reasons you will discover. By the time I got to the end I felt like I had just listened to a chick flick.
A top 5 , really great series.
It doesn't hold back, gives the point of view even if it hurts ur heart.
Yes she is really good , all the characters are different.
Sometimes even when you live you feel like your dying.
Absolutely, and I plan on it. I loved that they didn't shy away from the fact there would be child zombies, lots of them. Most books/movies gloss over that fact. It makes for a more terrifying realistic view.
Katie for sure, I related to her more. She was such a strong character, even in her vulnerable moments, she was never ashamed of she she was, and she loved unconditionally.
This was the first time I have heard one of her narrations, but I def will again.
The first chapter was heartbreaking and real and hooked me from the get go. I was completely invested and so glad I picked up this book.
Take a chance on this series, you wont be disappointed.
Tough human emotions
yeah, it's a good look at a different side of human nature.
I believe that it did
The intensity of the children's demise and how it affected the mother in the first portion of the book.
I think that this book is a tough read (or listen) for a guy because it does focus a lot on the emotional state of the two women. With that said, it's tough to capture the human focus and this book seems to do it well. It's certainly not what I expect when I read a zombie novel, but I can't fault the author for writing from her imagination's point of view.
I believe that most guys will want to see more zombie fighting, survival skills and action, however, it's also a good idea to see what simmers below the surface if you are forced to survive together without running all over the country.
The book begins when the zombies first take over. It's great to listen to, how people deal with the impossible of the dead rising. Some live some die. I like the the "thinking" humans actually improve their situation, instead of being in a constant state of running.
Good book, from a female's point of view.
Probably would. It sets a pretty good pace in the opening.
The description of the main character's family turning into Zombies and her infant son's fingers clawing at the door crack.
Great narration and worked well since the main characters are female
Good story which manages to keep up the zombie killing pace without overdoing it.
Thelma and Louise meets Linda Hamilton with lots of zombies
Tinker Bell of Death!
This is the first book in this genre that got me past the first chapter.
