Compilation. Two books in one. Generation Dead & Kiss Of Life.

Something strange is happening. Teenagers who die aren't staying dead; they're coming back to life. Termed 'living impaired' or 'differently biotic', there are lots of conspiracy theories to explain this new phenomenon. But as their numbers keep on growing, so does the discomfort of the livin

Dead Kiss is a compilation of two boring books.

The characters weren't very good. I felt sorry for some of them at times, but most of the time i didn't like them.
They were dull, and could be quite weird.
People who have a relationship with zombies, and think about having sex with them are quite hard to connect to!

The pacing in both books was really slow. It felt like wading through quicksand most of the time.
I would read a 100 pages, but still feel like i had got nowhere!

There was a cliffhanger a

After watching Torchwood: Miracle Day on TV I picked up this book at the shops because I thought it would be quite an interesting read (edit: to make it a bit clearer both feature the living dead idea...). So far, I love the Phoebe perspective, she's a 'goth chick' who sees people for who they are regardless of their...biotic state, you get the music and the look featuring throughout, something which, in books that I read anyhow, is new. The book had a segregation theme present in most 'high sch ...more

I love everything zombie but this book was a little soft in my opinion. I loved the story-line and everything but if your looking for a zombie novel this is not the book for you, however if you like complicated relationships read it!

Daniel Waters is a genius. His book was both smart and witty.
I liked the characters and I thought the new take on zombies was so clever.
I can't wait to read the third book.

Shelves: books-i-own, dnf
When I first saw this book on the shelf in a book store, I was captivated. I was very excited to read this book due to the simplistic yet beautiful nature of the cover and the potential of the plot. When I first started reading the book I was very impressed with the background and how it seemed to be developing. Unfortunately, before long, the book lost its hold on me. The main love interest started to become less zombified -as he had been previously written to be- and I felt it contradicted the ...more

I quite like the interesting storyline to these books, but unfortunately I reached page 150 and I kind of lost intrest. I think this was because a lot of the story was focused on Adam and his football. I also think that the relationship of Phoebe and Tommy dragged on. Maybe this was for effect in order to keep the reader reading but unfortunately I was instantly repelled from the continuation of the relationship. I really don't find books like Twilight very interesting, but to my surprise Dead K ...more

I guess these books are like the Twilight books, but instead of being about vampires, the subject matter here is zombies.

In short, this is a teen zombie romance series. A little deeper than that, it's all about zombie rights and, well, I suppose about prejudice and the fight against it.

I felt ok that a woman wrote about vampire teens but strangely I'm less keen on a guy writing about zombie teens; but I guess that's just my prejudices peeking through.

Still, it's all clean fun. Despite the title:

Honestly, I love these books. I think the only thing I didn't like was that Tommy seemed to be her love interest. (Or at least that's what is proposed) and I'm glad she chooses the right person anyway. I always liked Phoebe, Karen and Adam believing they were the best characters but Tommy, although a zombie (and I love zombies), wasn't all that appealing. I think it's great that he decided to do something about the way zombies were treated and represented but I still never took that much liking ...more

i love this book,reading the relationship between adam and phoebe evolve and the tension when tommy comes into the picture.this book also has really good points about stereotypes and how people judge a book by its cover and over coming those things is inspiring,daniel waters is a great writer

Amazing and for the first time, I cried whilst reading it.
Only once but still.
I even made my friend, who is also into books, read the wee section and end up crying as well.
