The Apocalypse Survivors
In The Apocalypse, the great majority of the men and women who fought with honor, with a sense of duty and loyalty, g ...more
For those who care: the strings of fate of my main characters are wound together nicely into a sweet bow...a sweet bloody red bow. How nice.
Just like everyone else, my favorite thing about this book is Jillybean and her "imaginary friend(s)". I found it especially intriguing ...more
See abovementioned, I wrote my review I the heading instead of here. I love these books. ...more
There are a lot of different characters, and while all are well written and developed, my favourite by far is Jillybean. She absolutely rocks for a little girl!!! So brave and smart and along with her Zebra, Ipes, she was fantastic.
So much happens in this that it's a story that needs to be savoured. Each of the original characters have their own tough time, but add in some new ...more
Worst of all is the completely nonsensical motivation of Cassie the "angry, racist black woman" and key v ...more
With the exception of the Walking dead graphic novels,I have not cried this much reading zombie fiction. It is an extremely great story with wonderful characters...Which is why I caution you. Don't get too attached. And I 'll
tell you something else ,I typically don't read zombie fiction if it has a focus on kids in any way. IMO,that's a world I prefer not have children in. So as soon as I discovered Jillybean,I almost stopped reading. I'm glad I didn't,because she is remarka ...more
Also don't look for any sense of vindication or satisfaction in the final downfall of the main antagonist; it's a common theme with the books of the author that I have read so far. You get maybe one or two paragraphs on their final demise, then immediately moves on. There is no catharsis or sense of the good guys winning, whereas the bad guys get page after page on their thoughts and feelings and wickedness and torturing of innocents. It is incredibly lo ...more
If you like the Living Dead you will love these books. Try not to get attached to any one character tho ...more
It's surprising how the lack of a shitty and selfish warning at the beginning of a book can let the reader enjoy the work (although, duh).
Jillybean was an interesting choice for a new character, with her coping mechanism evolving to a fragmented personality.
For a brief period I welcomed more backgroud information on Cassie, the empty villain from the first book, but it was a non-starter paragraph.
At a certain point, Ipes and Neil's voices started feeling like the same, that took me out of it a b...more
I've read reviews, hateful ones, perhaps guilt ridden by their own prejudices, about how racist this series is... It is. Yet, its realistic scenarios you would really see in a post apocalyptic world. I mean, really, it's 2020. If you haven't noticed, this year is on par. So buckle up, you're in for an awesome journey. Be it culture, gore, violence, or psychological, this book series will ensnare you to read as if you were a ravenous Texan attacking a bowl of BlueBell ice cream. ...more
I am a 63-year-old woman who loves zombie books! This is a great Series.! I can’t wait to read the next one. This author reminds me some what of Stephen King. King makes his characters seem so down to earth and appealing and then kills them off! Meredith has done the same thing. He makes you root for the characters, and you don’t know which ones are going to make it. No! Please not Jillybean!!
Peter Meredith catches you at page one and doesn't let up. Anyone that has read the first book should continue with this one. The character development is on par. My case in point little Jilly. You can do that and pull it off deserves five stars in my book. If you happen upon this one first. I recommend going to book one. But please give this book a shot. You will not be disappointed. ...more
I don't know what is yet to come, but my fingers are crossed that it doesn't include the heartache that came with the end of this book. ...more
Not in a long time has a book gotten me so intertwined with the characters that I had to stop reading just to get my own emotions back in check !!! This book will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and it just never stops !!! I am so looking forward to reading the next one !!!!!n
I found this book very hard to put down. It kept me interested the whole time. The characters are well developed and the author does a great job at describing everything so vividly. My only problem, was that I feel like he could’ve explained what happened at the cdc better, or maybe I accidentally skipped that part. Either way, I will be reading the next book!
