Li Seagull Thoughts?

Simeon Probably worth considering if you're not sick of the genre, but be warned that it was highly derivative. Also, little to no action (not sure anyone fired their guns at anything - more of a melodrama), lots of boring chatter, and too predictable. Characters are generic and empty-headed, and worst of all, there's a lot of amateurish medical nomenclature that repeatedly pulled me out of the story.

Li Seagull Eh, I think I'll pass, then. Post-apocalyptic usually isn't my sort of thing unless it's so well-written that if you look past that element of the story, it still makes sense. Probably not the case here.
