A bit on the dull side

Would you try another book from J. L. Bourne and/or Jay Snyder?
Probably not, this was my third book from Bourne that I have read.
What could J. L. Bourne have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
He could have thought up a better more imaginative ending. It seemed as though Bourne had his deadline and quickly finished the story without the depth of the beginning.It was quite bothersome when the author hinted that an upcoming piece of information was going to be earth shattering and then the reader finds out that it is simply that aliens landed at Roswell, NM.
Which scene was your favorite?
When deep six gets nuked.
Could you see Shattered Hourglass being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes it could be a movie. A haven't a clue about the actors.

April is a teenager fighting to guide her little brother safely through a landscape of death and ruin.
TWO IN THIS SERIES IS ENOUGH

Middle of the road sequel
Is there anything you would change about this book?
It seemed as though Justin Cronin wasn't quite sure where to take his characters. A lot of the set up from the first book had a flat conclusion or continuation. There was some good story telling and development, but I wish it had been a bit more focused.
Would you recommend The Twelve: A Novel to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book if you really need to see how things turn out.
Could you see The Twelve: A Novel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Yes, distilled down and reworked it would make for a good movie or TV series.
Any additional comments?
The idea that the character Lila Kyle was an orthopedic surgeon before the outbreak is ridiculous. Many of the characters did not feel authentic or real.
