That being said, I have degrees in English, with a strong background in editing and proofreading, and I suggest finding a better editor or, conversely, have him read each paragraph, beginning with the LAST paragragh and working backward toward the beginning. By doing this, his focus will more likely be on punctuation, spelling, word choice/validity and sentence structure, and not on the story itself, thereby finding all the errors . . . those were my primary issues. There were some paragraphs that were long, convoluted sentences, forcing me to a stop until I could understand what you were trying to say.
When editing pamphlets (or a chapter), I would read the text front to back sometimes, but I would read it four times:
1st to understand content
2nd for spelling errors/improper wording
3rd for punctuation
4th for sentence structure
This book was not as poorly written as others I have read, and I read the entire book this time as well; I cannot force myself to finish some books as they were horribly written. I almost gave you 3 points due to the prevalence of errors, but I really liked your story and feel it would make a great movie.
Best of wishes for all of your projects!
As I mentioned, we learn about the infection and the happenings of the world from a few different groups of people. Dom and his girlfriend grab some supplies and hole up in their apartment building in Seattle and watch the happenings from their cell/computer screens and out their windows. We, also, see what is happening from the eyes of Dr Adam Baker and his staff who are on hand trying to figure out what is causing this outbreak and how to stop it. Along the way we meet a few others and learn of their struggles with this disaster and ultimately what happens to them.
The infected in Pulse are quite unlike any I have read before. They begin by acting a bit off, then "off" turns to crazy and cannibalistic in some cases while others seem to have a bit of rational thinking where they attempt to maintain their appearance of humanity so that they can spread the infection from within. I am a bit unclear as to if the infection kills it's hosts and they are walking, talking corpses or if they are still alive and just being manipulated by the parasites. This question may have been answered in the book and I just may have missed it.
Pulse is a great story that is definitely worthy of a read. It is very gruesome, disgusting and quite violent. I will warn that if you absolutely cannot abide even a remote hint of rape, do look elsewhere as, while there is no great detailed rape scene, there are definitely situations that happen and discussions had that may cause upset in a reader who is sensitive to this type of situation. Otherwise, you absolutely must give Eloise J Knapp's Pulse a read!
What killed the novel a little for me was the uninspiring survivors in the book. Small-minded in their plans to cope with the new world and pretty much a bunch of terminal losers. I never got invested into an interest to see them survive and by the time the real losers did get infected it was almost a relief for me.
Good English, next to no typos and pretty well written for this kind of genre.
If you're a real TEOTWAWKI buff you will likely enjoy this. I have read better and will be unlikely to be going on the next "Pulse" excursion; should there be one.
Every page brings a new twist on what starts out as a classic zombie thriller. The virus is nothing like anything you've read or seen before. Speaking of twists and turns, don't bother cheering any of the characters on. Eloise knows when - and how - to kill off even the most central character.
If Eloise J. Knapp isn't on your "watch" list, she should be. Starting NOW.
