This book was just as hard to put down as Rot and Ruin! Once again Jonathan Maberry crafted a story that simply compelled you to continue reading. Dust and Decay introduced a few new characters while constantly evolving the original characters in realistic ways. The insight into human character is wonderful. This series is less about the dead and more about the way we approach living. I wept at the end, it was so unexpected and unwelcome! I can, however, clearly see how this book -and that ending - will flow beautifully into another book. This is a series not to be missed!
As a post apocalyptic/zombie novel it falls into the same category as The Forest of Hands and Teeth series.
This story is performed wonderfully! He has a voice that seems very sympathetic to the characters.
Well I'd have to steal a line from the book: Remember, in the Rot & Ruin everything wants to kill you.
Fantastic book to read or listen to - or both!
Brandon Mull won over many readers with his Fablehaven series and this new series is just as wonderful! With colorful, realistic characters and his fast paced, yet descriptive syle Brandon Mull has once again created a series that draws you in. One of the things I love about his books are the strong, capable young teen characters that always save the day. This series, like Fablehaven before it, is a wonderful read for boys or girls - and adults too!
My favorite character is Jason, the main character. He is a very normal teen boy that works hard to do the right thing, no matter how hard it is.
The performace was okay. It certianly wasn't bad but maybe a little less enthusiastic than the text deserves.
Stay away from the hippo tank!
