It starts off OK, the characters seeming normal and likeable enough. Unfortunately things start to go down hill pretty quickly, I personally didn't mind the animal Zombies too much, although I can imagine a lot of people would be turned off by this.
The first warning signs, for me, came when Thom and Dar go into town and encounter a gang of 'thugs' who have already beaten or shot (I don't remember which) a man. Rather than high-tail it out of the place, as I would imagine 99% of the population would, Thom leaves his teenage DAUGHTER in the car, and approaches the men. You can probably guess what happens next. Added to this the fact that Thom pretty much lets it happen, and in a couple of pages you are already shaking your head at the characters decision making capabilities and have taken an instant dislike to the main character for being both gutless and really stupid.
There are lots of other problems, the main one for me being that just before half way in the book, things start to slow down hugely. There seems to be a massive amount of time spent in the house, where very little happens (hence the skimming), save for a couple of excursions outside, and some tedious experiments on a 'Zombie'.
A lot of reviewers have mentioned how unlike-able the characters are, and I've got to agree, Dar is unrealistic, annoying and very hard to like or care about, the two Brothers, although starting off well, soon become annoying as well, continually sniping at each other.
Finally, there is the constant re-going over of scenes and thoughts.Read more ›
The story starts on a small farm in northern Maine, visited by novelist Thomas Swiftley and his troubled daughter, Dar. Swiftley's brother (Rick) owns the farm, having suddenly traded his fast tracked career as a bio-genetics engineer, for the slower paced, self-sustainable lifestyle provided by the Maine countryside. Thomas couldn't have picked a worse time to visit.Read more ›
