5 posts | 3 read | 4 to read
John Green meets Stephen King in this original take on the zombie apocalypse by author T. Michael Martin, which ALA Booklist called "the best of the undead bunch" in a starred review. Seventeen-year-old Michael and his five-year-old brother, Patrick, have been battling monsters in the Game for weeks. In the rural mountains of West Virginiaarmed with only their rifle and their love for each otherthe brothers follow Instructions from the mysterious Game Master. They spend their days searching for survivors, their nights fighting endless hordes of "Bellows"creatures that roam the dark, roaring for flesh. And at this Game, Michael and Patrick are very good. But the Game is changing. The Bellows are evolving. The Game Master is leading Michael and Patrick to other survivorssurvivors who don't play by the rules. And the brothers will never be the same. T. Michael Martin's debut novel is a transcendent thriller filled with electrifying action, searing emotional insight, and unexpected romance.

Cosyreader 1. 50! 2. I didn‘t take part in Mount TBR but none of them were from my actual TBR, I tried sticking to holiday reads 3. All of them were new to me except Annie Darling 4. Making new friends, seeing funny memes and everyone‘s beautiful selfies, and the 2000 increase to my Litfluence was most welcome 😏👌 2mo

At the start of the book, I really wasn‘t sure if it was a game or not, but once I realized that it wasn‘t, it got more interesting. There were certainly some suspenseful moments and I was kept wanting to read. I do think zombies aren‘t my favourite thing to read about. Cont in comments...

LibraryCin Though there were 4-star portions of the book, the majority of it was 3.5 stars for me (good). For some reason, I thought it was the start of a series, and I was all ready and willing to continue the series, but it seems that it is a stand-alone, after all! 12mo

Brothers Michael (17) and Patrick (5) are fighting for their lives to make it to the "end of the game" in this unique take on the zombie genre. I can't write more about it without spoiling, but I couldn't get used to the writing style. It's set in dystopia WV so I stuck it out (it may be a how-to manual after our next gov is elected). #octphotochallenge
