So, this is a story about Zoe and Dani... they are both separated and traveling with different groups after the world was stricken by a deadly flu virus killing almost everyone. Those that have survived were all the people who had previously survived the H1N1 virus. And, apparently this somehow has caused many people to have developed "special powers". For example, Zoe can sort of read minds. What???
There is no gas, the phones don't work, no cable, people are looting and the world is falling apart... BUT apparently there is Wifi everywhere they go... even in a cabin out in the middle of nowhere there is Wifi!!! Seriously... Dani and Zoe are communicating by email as they travel... this makes no sense whatsoever. But, it never occurs to them to try to communicate with their missing loved ones... No... instead it's much more important to exchange daily drama updates of all the hot guys and skanky ho-ho's that are in their present company.
Everything that we read about what is happening to Dani and Zoe gets repeated when they are exchanging their emails so you're actually reading the same stuff twice which makes the book move very slow.
Dani and her boyfriend were sick together... he died... she didn't. Apparently they were desperately in love but within one week she's got the hots for another guy and is thinking about getting laid. Don't most people grieve when the love of their life dies??
A good majority of the characters in this book seem to be more concerned with getting laid and hooking up instead of thinking about how they're going to survive the end of the world.Read more ›
Some things I found off putting:
- I didn't even care about the main characters. They are supposed to be 26 years old, but they act like they're 16. Their characters were flat. It bothered me that it is the end of the world as they know it and have lost lots of loved ones, and they seemed more concerned about drama and sex. If I was asked to describe the two main characters, I would probably say "horny" and "immature."
- way too much sex stuff... and it was all super cheesy. Those two main girls get turned on by everything! I got sick of the descriptions of how simply brushing against someone accidentally basically got them all hot and bothered.
- I know similies and metaphors make books more interesting and descriptive, but at times I felt like I was reading an English assignment in which the goal was go cram as many metaphors and similies into the pages as possible. Most of them sounded forced or like the authors were trying WAY to hard to be creative.
- it moved along So. Stinking. Slow.
- the "superpowers" plot was just weird.
- Over use of the "f" word. It was so unnecessary. I'm not a prude about language, but using it so much is pointless.
I can see how maybe 14 or 15 year-olds would like this, but even then, I wouldn't let my 14 year old read it because of the language and sex. If you consider yourself to have good taste in books at all, don't waste your time with this.
I suggest you read serious, thought provoking post apocalyptic books like The Road by Cormac McCarthy unless you are an adolescent angst addict.
There's just no way of sugar-coating it: the writing is bad. Cringe-worthy bad. There are not only basic grammatical issues but also stylistic ones that make most readers want to fling the book away. There is too much "telling" instead of "showing" and this gets in the way of the already diluted plot. Add to that characters who are so underdeveloped you can interchange them or meld them into one and still have basically the same book, and you have one dull read.
Zoe and Dani, the two protagonists, are suddenly thrust into this post-apocalyptic world that is never really completely explained. Yes, there is a virus that takes out most of the population, but we don't really get much about it, not even through flashbacks. But never mind that. What was most disconcerting about the two of them was that although society had crumbled around them, these two women were more interested in getting *pardon the expression* laid than anything else. The amount of time spent obsession over one man or another was absolutely ludicrous. And that's not even the worst part about it: one of them actually loses a husband to the disease yet seems to completely forget him as she drools over another guy.
I'm not going to go on and on about it because it's not worth it. Steer clear of this book. It will make you cringe.
