I actually ended up liking this way more than expected. I love zombie books but for some reason this one never seemed like my style. I really enjoyed the main character's POV and thought the pacing of the plot was perfect. Some of the parts with the bad guys felt a little too stereotypical, almost like a caricature of middle eastern people. I know that they were terrorists, but it still felt off. Also, Ray Porter is one of my favorite narrators.
I really liked this book, especially the protagonist. He‘s pretty sassy! It‘s also yet another interesting and plausible version of the virus story. Highly recommended for zombie fans! I‘m excited to read the next in the series!
Today‘s #agameoffavorites is award winners. I am a huge Jonathan Maberry fan, particularly his Joe Ledger series. He has won multiple Bram Stoker awards for Patient Zero, the first Joe Ledger Novel, his YA series Rot & Ruin and his Pine Deep series. He also has been place in be USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame as a writer.
One of his favorite novels is also a favorite of mine, I Am Legend by Richard Matheson.
Theo and I decided to start a different book and use a new bookmark. I need something different and I'm in a Zombie type of mood!
This is my all-time favorite zombie novel for an #AllHallowsRead rec. It's rare to find a biological science fiction book that I mostly agree with the science. Yes, it can be a bit testosterone pumped - if you don't like the word "hooyah" best not read the series. But I think that's easily ignored if you like biological warfare books.
If you want to insert a fun BANG! into your TBR schedule, this book is it! An elite covert special-ops group goes up against a zombie-making-bioweapon-wielding terrorist group. Badass Joe Ledger leads his group into all kinds of mayhem, including fighting "28 Days Later"-like zombies in Philly's Independence Hall. Just awesome! 1st in a series. #PairWith: boilermaker: 2/3 glass of Marstons Pedigree beer, shot glass of Jack Daniels, #chuggilicious!
Anyone read this book? I'm thinking of buying this.
