I've read the Twilight and Sookie Stackhouse series and I was very eager to start on the Undead series. This book was entertaining with a great plot but is it just me or does Betsy get to be extremely annoying and brainless. I know she is supposed to be a woman in her late 20's/early 30's who ran a hectic office with complicated bosses and colleagues. A blonde bombshell heroine but she comes across as a blonde bimbo who is extremely emotional, lacks common sense, and acts more like she's a pre-teen going through puberty and made to share a bedroom with her little brother. She's not just tempermental, she's ridiculously rude, illogical, and whiny. She's commonly displayed as a self righteous, pouting, stomping, confidence-starved 14 yr old that says things like "ick", "yuck", "blach", and "gross". It's definitely "Sex in the City" meets "Twilight" meets "Austin Powers" meets "Rugrats". Of all the amazing things she can do and ample power she has, she spends most of her time mudslinging, name calling, and staging "biotch" fights. Listen/Read this for the sheer mindless entertainment. Overthink the storyline and you'll regret it..even if you do subscribe to Vogue and own a pair of Manolo Blahniks.
Less KISSY and MORE KILLY please!
What happened? The first book was great action and even with the sprinkles love story here and there it was digestible. This book was painful. It's the Zompocalypse people...if that calls for a handful of survivors having time to sit around and mope about their sexuality and love interests and "hurt" feelings, I will be choosing to lead the zombies.
Any scene that didn't make me think this was a Jackie Collins book.
Yes, wonder why female writers usually become so cliche.
Being a female reader, I was so excited to support a female writer, especially as it relates to a good Zombie story. The writer is obviously talented and intelligent but the writing on this book assumes the reader is not. True story line is overshadowed by predictable plots, 1 dimensional characters and silly scenes. I KNOW..let's ALL split up and clear out a dark hotel and get chewed on by hidden zombie ninjas. Anyone think of having one person scream in the lobby...PIZZA IS HERE and then wait for any undeads to come to you as you pick them off in a safe spot??? A few of the cattle calls and you are sure to get the highly mobile ones first and eliminates the whole...Oh crap , there's a zombie behind the door that I forgot to check.
