Instead of focusing on the zombies and the terrible things they can do a human, Jason Kristopher instead focuses on the human elements of the story, showing us characters that continue to live, laugh, love, hate, and fight in this new and sometimes alien world, all the while struggling to hold onto the very thing that separates them from this new threat - their humanity. The zombie genre may be overplayed and cliche at this point, but this series has proven that when used with the correct touch, it can be used to tell a riveting story of the human condition and provide a backdrop for compelling military fiction at the the same time.
That being said, Interval didn't feel quite as tight as the the first book in the series, but it wasn't a failing of the author or the story. I think the major problem that I had with this one was the scope of the story he told in this single volume. Taking place over 15 years and with jumps of several months to several years in between chapters... it can really be quite jarring. It really forced him to "tell" us a lot of what happened in the intervals instead of simply being able to "show" us. One prime case of this is with the character of William Shaw, who has the team he brought with him on a mission killed to a man and finds himself trapped in a airport surrounded by Walkers at the end of one chapter. By the time we see him again, it's been six years, and we're learning of his survival. At no point in between do we see the character again, and that made it a little bit "jumpy" at times.
The other issue that I personally had was the narration style. The chapters where David Blake was narrating were told in first person limited. Any time David wasn't center stage, the narration was all in third person. This was a little bit tough to get around at first, and while it did get easier as the novel progressed, it was an interesting choice that Kristopher made. I can't say that I would have done the same.
All the little flaws aside, this was an incredibly fun read. I really didn't want to put it down, and was more than a little bit surprised when I found I had plowed through half of it in my first sitting. Had I not needed to go to bed to get up for work, it probably would have been a "one sitting" book. And considering it weighs in at 400 pages, that's no easy feat and is a testament to Kristopher's craft.
No matter your feelings on the zombie apocalypse genre, whether your a fan of it, hate it, or are on the fence, I would strongly recommend this series. I've truly enjoyed it and can't wait for the conclusion.
"Interval" though, I waited to read. I would look at it once in a while, then pick another book.
The anticipation was so much fun! I treated the book like that special Christmas present under the tree. (The one you beg mom for constantly.)
I had a good idea what was in the box, already getting two others a lot like it and loving those. I wasn't sure what color it was or if it is the one I saw at the store. I just KNEW that I would love it no matter what. So I keep peeking at the present waiting for the magical day to see WHAT IT IS EXACTLY. I even prepare for Christmas Day by rereading the last few chapters of "End" to get myself reacquainted with the storyline. Then I opened up my present on Christmas Day only putting my iPad down when I had to. Now that I am finished with "Interval" all I can say is...NEXT!!!!!!
I really recommend you read the first book in this series, because this book picks up right where book one left off. I am anxiously awaiting the next release, to find out what happens next. It's a really good book with great character development, great descriptions of their environment and battles, with the sub plots really skillfully interwoven into the storyline. I have read hundreds of books in this genre and this one is ranked in my top three.
