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 ...more

This trilogy was a slightly different take on the zombie tale, taking place 25 years after the dead began to rise and with an emphasis on the bloggers reporting the news for the masses too scared to leave their houses. Politics, conspiracies, and at least a couple of unexpected deaths.

I'd say the first book was my favorite, being that it had an interesting perspective on a post-apocalyptic presidential campaign and a conspiracy that wasn't too outlandish. I didn't think the middle bo

Brilliant trilogy. This is Zompoc however a very unique and unusual take on the genre, mixed in with triller. The storyline is based in a couple decades or so time after the “Rising” (was which was the Zombie Apocalypse). Society isn’t like a Mad Max film.

The storyline follows a group of internet journalists and a conspiracy which will rock the foundations of the post-Rising society. I am about to start the 4th book in the series and perhaps the shorter stories accompanying the main books. I re

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.
