It's really interesting that they were able to cure the disease. I feel like the same old zombie plot is getting a bit worn: Zombie virus breaks out, characters struggle to survive and rebuild civilization among a new race of zombie-humans. This book is not at all like that. The zombie virus has a cure, and the new world includes both people immune to the disease and the cured. This creates a really interesting dynamic between the people, and gives the characters' personalities a dimension that helps to make them realistic. The cured have to deal with the things that they did before the cure, and the immune have to deal with their experiences fighting to stay alive. Both sides have done terrible things, but one side blames the other, and the other side acknowledges their crimes.
This book has really awesome characters that you can understand. At first I was wary, and had a hard time getting into it, but within the first chapter, I was hooked. I finished it in about a day and a half, stopping only to sleep and go to work. I haven't read a book that nails characters so perfectly in a long time. The characters always seen in zombie plots (the grizzled hunter, the honorable person who tries to save everyone, the crazy ones that try to raid, etc) aren't existent in this book. Each character is realistic, and could be any one of us after an event like this. It makes them relate well, and makes the book much more enjoyable.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to disappear into an alternate world for a little bit.
I enjoyed this book on multiple levels. I loved how the author used the trial to look at what happened retrospectively. The plot flows well, with clever twists; there are some scenes that will make your skin curl; the descriptions of the "barren land" were almost poetic, despite the devastation; and I enjoyed the romance tucked in, it felt very real. But I also enjoyed this book because it made me think. The author gives us a detached look into human nature and its flaws, and it's not always a pretty picture. Acceptance comes at a high price, but it's only through acceptance that humans can move on and learn from their mistakes. And justice will finally be made.
This was a fast paced story. The author includes personal and societal interactions between Immunes and Infected. Also, survivors trying to find their way in a new, very different world. You see the ramifications of the plague in the everyday interactions of the characters: how they speak, treat one another, and make due without the everyday items we take for granted. Interesting premise, highly recommended!
There is one colony of helthy humans - the City.
There are only few thousands of inhabitants. Much of them are soldiers who keeps eye on the border of the City.
Yet they have electricity, hot water, even TV broadcast. (from where? who maintain it? how it is possible for few thouasands people to mainatin all of this. And what for is TV?)
But they even have no idea if there are other colonies of healthy people. They have radio communications, cars (and from where they get gasoline?) yet they did not explore their surroundings to find others (there are only few scavengers - who travel by foot!!!)
Of course those are only examples, there are much more such illthink? things.
The pace is rather very slow. Much to slow.
Right now I see that it is only first book of five - I certainly will not reach for rest of them.
