I don't really have anything new to add about Rot & Ruin other than throwing in my voice to chime with the naysayers in a bored "Nay!" I may even be lip synching. I'm not feeling the effort at all.
Imagine the most stereotypical response of a fifteen year old boy and apply that to any points the zombie killing concept/teenaged boy living in a post apocalyptic world can dredge up and that's your book. Stir in a dash of "I should have cared all along!" and generic teen friendships story. Add a pinch of romance. Yawn. To continue with my lame-o cooking analogy, none of the ingredients had any flavor.
Sorry for the uninspired review. This book didn't inspire much of anything in me. I blame Rot & Ruin! Will this mediocrity never cease?

Michael Morse I'm surprised maberry didn't get sued with how many parts he "borrowed" from all the good zombie movies, and tv shows. He did it to liven it up but it ended up killing any sense of originality. Then again there was those stupid trading cards, the hell is this Pokemon?
