This book was even better than Maberry's first book in the series ! Maberry did a great job with making the story work. I'm looking forward to the next Joe Ledger adventure!
As far as Science Fiction novels set in a dark but no so distant future go, this one was pretty awful. The characters were not particularly likable, the story was far fetched and unbelievable, and I kept thinking the author might have been a frustrated porn writer. Admittedly, I got less than half of the way through before I couldn't stomach any more, so MAYBE it ended strong, but I guess I'll never know. WANTED just wasn't for me.
Wow. "Bad" does not even begin to describe this book. I'm not sure what was more unbelievable, the flying school bus, or the idea that a Denver Nugget would drive a Prius. The narrator droned-on in a monotone voice, and it took all my will just to get to the rather abrupt ending. The bad guys were all bigoted, gun-toting White Christian cannibals (with bad teeth), while the good guys were a rainbow coalition of peace loving do-gooders. This was, hands down, the most politically correct science fiction story I've ever read (heard?), and it was neither believable or enjoyable. Save yourself eight hours of your life you'll never get back and spend your credit elsewhere.
A good story, but it ended abruptly. Still, I enjoyed all three books, and the author finshed things nicely.
The story was fast moving, the characters seemed real, and the story was "believable", as far as zombie stories go. Can't wait for th next book!
There wasn't much in the way of charactor development, and the story just dragged on and on.
