Welcome to the second of three posts I have this week for the Barely Alive series! Monday - An awesome guest post/character interview with Bonnie and Paul. Tuesday: An awesome zombie meatloaf recipe from Bonnie, sure to complete any doomsday themed meal! And now today I have a review of Mostly Dead, book 3.
Originally I was supposed to review all three books, but time escaped me and I found myself having to jump right into Mostly Dead, book 3. What I found was an exciting action packed – and very unique – story. Yep, I’m a bit disappointed I didn’t get a chance to read the first two books first.
So when I jumped in with this story Paul and Brian are on the road, and Paul is trying to figure out how to get away from Dominic. Dominic is a big reason I wish I had read the other books. He’s in this book quite a bit, but not really in it. Are you picking up what I’m putting down? Anyhow, I think I definitely want to know more about Dominic. But in the meantime, Paul is definitely a slice of interesting with a side of awesome craziness.
This book read wonderfully. I think it is a true attest to Bonnie’s writing skills that I didn’t feel like I was lost, even though this isn’t really a standalone book. I was quickly enamored with the characters, and any questions I had got answered along the way.
This book was full of action. And the zombie storyline is unlike anything I’ve ever read. There’s a bit of romance, and a few sad moments. Dominic is creating more zombies at a crazy rate, Paul is suffering from his own dubbed “superhero” complex, trying to save everyone. People are hearing other people’s thoughts, and it was just a great trip following Paul through this journey. I definitely think this is a book for zombie lovers, especially if you are looking for a new take on it.
