3.0 out of 5 stars I almost didn't bother finishing it., September 6, 2010
This review is from: Infinity: Chronicles of Nick (Hardcover)
What to say, what to say - its somewhat difficult to write a review for this book as it was neither good nor bad. I briefly considered buying this book in the store but vetoed it in favor of another and instead rented it from the library - I'm really glad I did. Reading some of the other reviews I discovered Nick is apparently from another series where he's older and maybe this is why some people really liked this book. Not just because it's a prequel of a favored character but that reading about him in other books has given him more depth than was shown in Infinity. I find it amusing that so many people were wary of reading a YA Fiction book and then came to the conclusion that this book was "above average" for the genre, because as a regular YA Fiction reader I can say that this was in fact below average. (What YA books have you been reading, if any?) The quick three or four page intro left me ready for a great ride, then the first forty pages of the book was decent, then during the middle I seriously considered leaving the book in favor of another and then it managed to get its act together for a good final sixty pages. The overall story is .... well its mostly about stopping zombies who have been turned by a video game. Yes. That is the story. DO NOT BE DECIEVED BY THE BOOK SUMMARY. And I have to say that as far as zombie plot lines go this was weaker than most. Nick's sarcasm with the exception of a few smile and chuckle worthy moments came out flat and trying to hard, and while the other characters have an interesting premise they were in no way developed. Whatsoever. I am 99.9% sure I already know who it is that is trying to alter Nick's future - this one of the great mysteries to be solved later on in the series. So in conclusion my thoughts on Infinity: "meh." Will I read the next one? Not sure. In any case it'll definitly be rented from the library.
