In a Zombie Orgy, does everyone get.....eaten? (couldn't resist, sorry).

Hey girls. Sorry I couldn't make it with the last book but I am really looking forward for this one :D

Brain fest! Yay!!
This time I'll be not the one who didn't finish the book. (I remember the first VF hangout. Bonny said that there is always someone in a book club who didn't read the book.)

I started the book yesterday and I'm somewhere in the middle - of course I was dreaming about it last night... unfortunatly not about the sexy times, but the being chased by Zombies and trigger happy gunmen part :O
aside of that I like it so far, very steamy... not sure what to think about Ali? I don't really get her character... but maybe she's just so shell-shocked, and that's intentional? Looking forward to see where this is going

Uh-oh, book dreams! I did that to myself a few years ago, where I read Wool, and Parable of the Sower, and some other dystopian story all back to back. Started having dreams where everyone I knew was crammed into survival shanty towns, or roaming a wasteland.

And yeah, we won't get super deep characters with this one, but that's ok. It was a fun book, meant to be all about getting it on, and it worked ok for what it was. :) If anything I was expecting it to be weaker than it was, so I had fun with this one.

Yes, I agree and was aware that it was not going to deliver a deep character study ;)
I admit that somethings where bothering me - and it was not the zombies, but the way the guys acted. There were quite some scenes that I found borderline rapey...especially in the sex scene where she's keeping saying no, but they just have sex anyways... I think a no is as a no and not a challenge to change her mind...
Well - anyways... I deceided to just go with it and in the end it was an entertaining read and had me laughing a time or two

Okay I might let my vampire porn for next month and will start with this. Looks interesting and funny (not the rape part). I just want something quickreading now.

message 9: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
Yeah, if you tell yourself that these people were already together, really, you're just watching them film a home-porn/zombie-flick, the attitude of the guys is less irritating. I pretended there was a secret safe word she could have used, and that made it better. It would've been nice if that wasn't necessary though.

Elif (angelus_mortis) | 58 comments Mod
If the sex scenes are not engrossing (I'm not sure this is the right word here. If it's wrong, please inform me the right one, so I can use for different books :) ) I'll definitely not like the book. It's so boring so far (I'm not that far, still trying to read from my mobile ). I really need to read some vaginal quality time (Is it a common phrase in the group or I just made it up? )

PS: So many questions, sorry :)

message 11: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
Engrossing is right. :) About 23%, after he's been "can we have sex now? how about now? it's been 5 minutes, maybe now?" she goes ahead and pounces him and you start getting multiple page long sexy times. If you take it seriously as written there's a lot of not-actually-consenting going on, but that's why I pretend they're acting out a fantasy for a homemade porn tape. With non-consent it's horrifying, but without the consent issues, it's hot. :)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Well I am 30% and so far ... well I am ashamed I like it. Okay, there is no plot what so ever so far and it is kinda refreshing you know. You just watch people how they go through post apocalyptic life. Kinda like Walking Dead without all the "societies" and evil men. Of course it is post apocalyptic porn (with my chance, the guys would be ugly as fuck if this happen to me). I guess after Milk and Honey I need something not so complicated :D

message 13: by Kris (new)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
I am finished. I was wondering and yeah the date of publishing is 2012 when Walking dead aired since 2010. My intuition about fanfiction confirmed. However it really was porn book with glimpse of plot. I little got the Ali's character but the others cavemen were mystery for me. it was like "okay, let's play it hursher than in normal days on normal dates but still make her our sextoy"

Elif (angelus_mortis) | 58 comments Mod
Will there be a hangout for these books?

message 15: by Kris (new)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Hey ho everyone. So did you finish the book? Do you read alt pick and what about hangout?

message 16: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
OH! yup, time to start picking a day again Oops!
I think we talked about waiting until after the official hangout this time? If so we can pop up a choice of July 6 or July 9. In fact I think it's close enough now, I'll just start with that, if anyone wants it sooner, or has another day they want considered, just speak up. :)

message 17: by Kris (new)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Well I think gossiping about (and after) official hangout won't be bad at all.

message 18: by Elif (new)

Elif (angelus_mortis) | 58 comments Mod
From 4th (half day for this day) until 7th july is ramadan fest here . I'm not muslim but my family and friends are, so I may need to attend some meetings to make them happy :) For now I have to say 9th.

message 19: by Kris (new)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Do you read alt pick? I have to say I am enjoying it more than main book.

message 20: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
I skipped the alt for now, I had too many library books coming available all at once I wanted to get to! But Meljean Brooks is usually good, I liked the first couple books in her series that the alt comes from. So I'll get around to this one, probably when it's available in a collection with some other short stories someday.

message 21: by Tahina (new)

Tahina | 35 comments Mod
Both dates would work for me and I'm looking very much forward to the hangout. So far I've not read the alt, but maybe I'll get around to it next week, so I might be done with it in time for the hangout :)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Tahina: It is really short ;)

message 23: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
So it's looking like Saturday the 9th is the way we're leaning. I'll wait another day so folks have had a full week to weigh in, then I'll start posting the various announce/event things in all the places :D See you ladies then!

message 24: by Tahina (new)

Tahina | 35 comments Mod
Sounds good to me - thank you for taking care of the organizing :)

message 25: by Kris (new)

Mermaid Kris (themermaidkris) | 53 comments Mod
Prepare your drinks and your notes! ;) Also how about everyone picks a book which she liked (not already read by VF) and tell the others about it. For inspiration.

Sorry I haven't been around much the past few weeks. School is wrapping up for my son, so we've been arranging summer activities, vacation, getting set up for school next year.

The 9th sounds great to me. See everyone then!

I won't be able to make the hangout this month. :( I am back in the US and will be working during the time you are meeting. I hope you all have a great chat!

I just finished the book today and I liked some of it but skipped some parts that seemed slow. Also, what was up with all the "his girl" stuff going on?? It seemed like Ali caught Stockholm Syndrome really quickly as soon as Dan got her out into the world, even if by force. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it!

Tahina | 35 comments Mod
I'm very sorry that you can't join Amanda. Unfortunatly Sanasai is running late, due to work. I've been hanging around since 18:55 and now it's 19:45 - as far as I can see, I'm still the only one of us on G+, so I'm going to call it a day and enjoy the fantastic weather with my husband. CU all next time :)

message 29: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Crane-rosset | 103 comments Mod
Well, we had two people for a very short meeting tonight. I'm sorry we didn't see you, Tahina. I was waiting about that time, too.

message 30: by Elif (new)

Elif (angelus_mortis) | 58 comments Mod
Girls, sorry I couldn't make it. A friend of our family passed away in the morning and I needed to be there. I thought I can write you, but couldn't find time to do that.

Soo sorry again.

message 31: by Tahina (new)

Tahina | 35 comments Mod
@Elif: I'm very sorry for your loss! Don't worry for not being able to be there.

@Jennifer: to bad that we missed each other! :( Did you use Sanasais hangout link? Because I did and it kept telling me "you're the only member in the hangou" or something like it :(

message 32: by Malaraa (new)

Malaraa | 173 comments Mod
So sorry to hear that Elif.

And sorry we mostly missed each other, hopefully we'll be able to catch up next time!
