    I really enjoy the Newsflesh series. I’m a zombie book lover and enjoy this series initially because of this. I stay for all of the additional story lines because the author has created a rich world with characters that are intriguing and well rounded. I well understand why this series has won awards. Those who like this unusual genre will be drawn in by this new refreshing look.

    Finished the first book, DNF the second. Plot became convoluted and uninteresting, characters became bland and acted in unrealistic ways. Interpreting the zombie apocalypse through the lens (literally) of a news organization is a concept that was immediately uninteresting to me, but I decided to try to finish anyway. I want to be clear that the last point is NOT a criticism of the author; it was clearly an idea she liked and is certainly unique in zombie fiction, at least to my knowledge. Howeve Finished the first book, DNF the second. Plot became convoluted and uninteresting, characters became bland and acted in unrealistic ways. Interpreting the zombie apocalypse through the lens (literally) of a news organization is a concept that was immediately uninteresting to me, but I decided to try to finish anyway. I want to be clear that the last point is NOT a criticism of the author; it was clearly an idea she liked and is certainly unique in zombie fiction, at least to my knowledge. However, a third of the way through the second book I felt the plot was completely losing momentum and I decided to move on. I think Grant is certainly a solid writer from a technical standpoint, and my decision to drop this series would not necessarily preclude me picking up another of her books.

    I'm at a loss for words. I didn't find that each book in the entire trilogy had the same impact. Feed blew my mind, Deadline was the least gripping, and Blackout was somewhere in between. All in all, though, wow. Just wow. After my mind recovers from the crazy ride that Mira Grant took it on, I will read Rise and Feedback. Rise up while you can.
