Derstand that the author would like to kill two prominent figures of 4 but I found that there was too much inconsistency in this regard and this is reflected in the story as it becomes a little surreal for timesTo conclude I was a little disappointed by the story itself and if a seuel comes out I m not sure I ll read it The ideas are good but I think some tracks and choices were not for me Full disclosure I reuested and received a free Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith ebook copy of this novel through NetGalley inxchange for an honest reviewSometimes you read a blurb and think a novel has a good premise However when you read that book you learn that you have a huge insurmountable problem with it the narratorCourtney is snarky constantly putting her friends down arrogant clueless bratty hot tempered and thoughtless So she s pretty much your typical teenager xcept for the fact that throughout the novel I kept wishing for her to die because she was so awful I can t go into much detail because I don t want to get into too many spoilers but it s hard to believe she went through so many traumatic possibly life changing vents and came out They Shall Be One Flesh exactly the same at thend of the novel As I ve said before I don t mind unsympathetic characters like Jorg from Prince of Thorns but Courtney is just intolerable She s your typical teenager with attitude magnified by 10 and given an added dose of blindness about the world around herBeing stuck in the head of such a horrible human being for the whole novel was trying I kept fruitlessly wishing she d die so I could get in the head of someone who at least acted like a human like Willie or The Heritage of Arabo-Islamic Learning even Brandon But no such luck Courtney lives while people around her die like flies The only mildly interesting thing about her is that she thinks she has a plan to fix the zombie problem She goes on and on about how much smarter she is thanveryone and yet we never hear the details of this wonderful plan that hinges on the army clearing New York of all its zombies in the next year or soOkay Hereward (Hereward, even with that wretched girl for a narrator this book may have redeemed itself with a good premise I ll admit that it doesn t have a bad premise just not a great one Ifveryone has moved out into the suburbs because the cities are infested with zombies why don t the zombies follow them into the suburbs Predators like to go where the food is Under One Sky especially when said food is wandering around near wooded areas where there s lots of shelterAs for the drug Vitamin Z I ve never underestimated the determination of people to get high Yes I believe that people would try to get high off zombie brains but I also think Gallardo needed toxplain of why the drug makes people act like they do when they re on it That could be in the next installment of the series but I m not so curious as to consider reading the seuel Not unless Courtney gets a personality transplantThis book doesn t come out until August 26 but I can t honestly recommend it to anyone Courtney is a rather poor xcuse for a human being and the plot isn t ven all that Groom and Doom exciting To top it all off the zombies while having some uniue ualities like being able to lay ambushes it seems are pretty boring They show up when it s convenient for the plot and that s about it We re told that they seem to bevolving pack behaviour and see that actually happen during the novel but we re told Eroarea lui Descartes exactly 0 about it or its possible conseuences And that s pretty much how the whole novel goes in one big cycle where wend up back at suare one in the Murder at the Savoy (Martin Beck, endI give this book 15 stars I received an ARC of this book free from the author and netgalley inxchange for an honest reviewI didn t 22 Britannia Road expect anything in this book and I m just glad because honestly it wasn t a goo. St days But I have a plan to get out of here and move to New York I just have to keep selling Vitamin Z along with your fries at The Bully Burger The secret ingredient Zombie brainsI've noticed things are gettingven worse lately if that's Gabe Izzy even possible The zombies seem to be getting smarter and faster If I can avoid being arrestedaten by shufflers or catching the.
