FINAL RATING: ★★★★★/★★★★★
“This is what I do know: A lie, however well-intended, can't prepare you for reality or change the world... To tell the truth is to provide armament against a world too full of cruelties to be defeated with simple falsehoods... It seems to me we owe the world--more, we owe ourselves--the exchange of comfort for the chance that maybe the truth can do what people always say it can. The truth may, given the opportunity, set us free.”
So far, my favorite book in trilogy (oh how i wish there were more of the books). At least i sat and read them all at once - it's always better than being confused with what happened earlier.
Do not read this review if you didn't read Feed. p.s. contains some heavy spoilers for first book. *HIDDEN SPOILERS ARE REAL FOR BOTH BOOKS*
Soooo, after the glorious mindfuck scene from first book - aka the part where
George died we have Shaun's perspective and narration.
WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO! Just what i ever wanted, mwahahahaha.
I mean, i LOOOOOOOOOVE when guys narrate (especially if it is new adult book). So this was a jackpot >:)
Now, seriously, do not read what i wrote if you haven't read Feed. Huge spoilers ahead.
Anyway, so, we have Shaun who literally went into a mess of emotions, actually going crazy over the loss of George. He went insane to the point of hallucinating and hearing her voice. He usually talks with her and everyone from his group accepted him even after he clearly went crazy. I guess he must be lucky to have such friends who would support even his craziness. But hey, he never once made stupid decisions.
Anyway, i was shocked when they learned that George
could have been saved because of her retinal KA, and that instead of turning into a zombie, she could have been normal and immune. I guess Shaun went mad after that (i read it but who knows).
I mean poor Shaun T_T
“I guess in the end, it doesn’t matter what we wanted. What matters is what we chose to do with the things we had.”
Anyway, it was interesting to see the relationship between Becks and Shaun, who thought Shaun was playing hard to get (baby, you don't know him after all) but still successfully got to
have sex with him-i want it, damn you. So yeah, cool.
Can i please, please please be in love with Shaun? Hell yeah, i don't care if he is imaginary kick ass crazy idiot xD
And after all these emotional scenes, we have some that just cracked me up.
“I just find it interesting that kids apparently used to cry when Bambi's mother died. George and I both held our breaths, and then cheered when she didn't reanimate and try to eat her son.”
“Why is it you assholes always feel the need to tell the media your evil plans before you kill us?” asked Becks. “Is it a union requirement or something?”
“Then you know why I'm not in the mood for sunshine and puppies." I paused. "That expression makes no sense. Why the hell would I ever be in the mood for puppies?"
"I could go with sunshine, though. Sunshine is useful. It should really be 'sunshine and shotguns.' Something you'd actually be happy about."
“I suggest it’s time we head off to see the Wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Jesus We Are All So Fucked.”
I don't know, but Mira Grant is expert with killing off characters
i was so sad when Kelly died, she was cool .
And in the end, this book shocked me as much as it shocked me at the end of Feed. . I certainly did not expect that (huge spoiler):
George would be cloned.....ok..........SO AHSFGJASHDGHAJDAGJSDASJDASDGHASJD!!!!!!
(another huge spoiler):
Yep....i just loved it.
