So now we figure whats up with that kid from the last book; similar to Regan, Ben has a mission to fulfill where he tracks down the initiators of the apocalypse and terminates them. Don't worry though, the old gang aren't too far off.
Now this book starts its own storyline and introduces new elements and plots, just as mysterious as in the old books. I'm on book 6 and I still don't know whats going on :). The new plot line has to do with a lot of beautiful women seemingly bred or, I'm guessing now, even cloned from the past playboy models, and raised for some secret purpose.
Now I don't like over the top, far fetched plots and these series of books are kinda that, but the author is an expert in weaving these intricate plots while still keeping the plausibility of it all. If it wasn't realistic, I'd have dumped this series a long time, but the story set up is pretty good, the best I've read in a zombie book actually.
Best character: Harrison! Grumpy potty mouthed old man with humor befitting a freaking zombie apocalypse! Great narration work on him and all the other characters.
This book has 3 narrators! Wow! They're not all talking at the same time, rather one narrator controls certain characters and their scenes always seem to comprise of just those characters and the same narrator. I think. I'm not sure, but it works it great.
Narrators are fine
I've enjoyed this series up until #5 and then downhill. This was just okay. The main bug for me is the addition of the storyline and character Echo/Celeste - girls being "farmed" for lack of a better word in some underground bunker for some reason I haven't figured out yet but has something to do with rich and of course evil old women. (snore) Add in gratuitous graphic juvenile lesbian sex scenes and I'm bored.
"AN AWESOME BOOK!!"
I loved it all! I wasn't too sure about the 4th one- I was worried that it hadn't been as good as the others but then I gave this one a go- and I am so that that I did! The characters are brilliant and the whole concept is ace. This one is definitely worth a listen to! I have just downloaded number 6- fingers crossed!
The Deadlocked Series is awesome!
Narrator is brilliant!
