And the book is awesome too: it is a very solid zombie novel. Dead Islands is written in such a way that the reader is fluidly pulled along the storyline itself without drawn-out development or side-happenings ever getting in the way. The romance lent a sweet element to the story, but didn't take it over - which I am sure would irk a lot of hardcore zombie readers if it had - but always stepped down to let survival take the trophy for the reader's attention.
It wasn't my favorite, but not because it was badly written or annoyed me but more because not every book can be not every reader's favorite - diversity, people - because 1. I'm a character-driven reader and 2. I don't do cliffhangers. In my opinion there is not a detailed account of Ben or Ty's backstory, and I like wrap-ups, even in series.
That being said, I thought Moon took some characters that don't exactly fit the mold of Every Zombie Novel Ever, who are living different (and exciting, even without the zombies) lives than everyone else, and developed a story that had a classic zombie feel; yet, felt modern and relatable due to the very recent real-world events that it incorporated.
Aside from a few personal reading quirks, I really dug Dead Islands and would definitely read the next book; I'd highly recommend it to you lovers of classic zombie fiction looking for something a bit more modern but holding onto all the elements y'all love.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Beyond editing fixes, the story and characters need some work. For instance, I like that the prologue is someone we never meet again, and then the first chapter is the main characters (?), but then when we make the switch to the FBI agents, and never go back to the HI hikers... If you're going to introduce us to a throwaway character (the prologue in China), then move on with the hikers in HI, don't then throw in the FBI at the last second; either add some more throwaway characters (to flesh out the story) or don't throw in the FBI and focus more on characterizing the hikers. Personally, I'd go for more throwaway characters (since they show us the situation around the world). So keep writing, and keep looking for that spark!
It starts with the two main characters flying out from Korea to Hawaii. They are two average guys that are so inept i felt like yelling at them. They both had little to no common sense survival skills. These two and others see the dead bite and kill people on a big scale,, escape back to their hotel room where no one has any idea what's happening on the other side of the island, and just go to sleep. They don't make plans and they don't gather supplies, they just collapse and sleep, and they bring a stranger who got badly bit back with them ( instead of taking him to the hospital or keeping a watch on him).
I only gave the book three stars, because it took too long in the build up, there was very little response from the authorities after it erupts on the plane where multiple people were killed, the main characters are bumbling idiots, and and there just wasn't enough action scenes. It was a ho-hum story that I kept reading to see if it would get better, but sadly it didn't get much better and ended right where it sort of got interesting.
