Gods of Anthem by Logan Keys – Audiobook Review

Reviews 7 ★★★★

I’m a fan of zombie books, but it’s been a while since I’ve had my zombie fix. This book was the perfect solution to that problem. I especially loved that it had a unique angle on the genre – it wasn’t just life as usual and then the zombies hit. This was much more of a dystopia, with a controlling government willing to sacrifice its people and revolutionaries called The Underground who are fighting to regain any sense of liberty. What Fed My Addiction: Liza. Right from the beginning, I liked Liza. First of all, since I was listening to this one, there was that British accent (I have to admit that I love British accents). Even though she was sent off to die and had sort of given up hope that she’d ever see a better life (or much of a life at all), she still fought hard to fight the good… Read more »

Review: The New Hunger by Isaac Marion

Review: The New Hunger by Isaac Marion

Random Reads, Reviews 2 ★★★★

The New Hunger as my June Random Read (I just barely got this read in June, but I did it!).  This is a novella prequel to Warm Bodies and I honestly wasn’t that excited about reading it, but I’m very glad that I did!  I think I liked the prequel better than I liked Warm Bodies because it really delved into what it felt like to live in Marion’s zombie world.  This novella gave us backstory on Julie, Nora and R! The “cloud of hands.”  Yes, I know it sounds weird, but I can’t really explain it any better than that, which is why I have it listed as one of my negatives.  R keeps referring to a “cloud of hands” that is propelling him forward?  Or something?  I don’t really know and I just never got it.  This is a small detail, but one that bugged me every time… Read more »

Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Review: Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion

Reviews 18 ★★★½

  I picked this book up because I really wanted to read it before I watched the movie, which is coming out on DVD in June.  The first thing that really struck me was that the book was written from the perspective of a zombie!  This was something unexpected and new – I loved getting into R’s mind and I thought that this made the book much more interesting and enjoyable than your typical zombie apocalypse novel.  It was often funny to hear R’s opinions of his fellow groaning, shuffling zombie “friends.”  Who expects to laugh at a zombie novel, right? I liked R.  I thought that Marion did a great job of creating a character who was detached from human emotion in many ways, but who still strove for that emotion in ways that allowed me to sympathize with him (and to care about what happened to him and… Read more »
