"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

But the twist is there are 3 classes of human left. Immune, the tastiest meat out there, infected, who die or turn white and start munching, and the Slow Burns who are infected but don't die or turn. And these zombies are complicated! They change, some of them learn.... cooperate.... some of them are smart!
The narrator is one of the Slow Burns and he is tortured, complicated and twisted .....before the appocolypse even happens. You can not help but root for him even as you wonder if he's salvageable.

Zed and his buddies keep adding to their little troop but not with out a lot of fighting, ass kicking, violence and gore to get there. You know, the usual. And each time Zed and his friends engage the Whites you know there will be some action and there is plenty of that. Just when they think they have this infecting thing figured out and a course of action, it gets screwed up. They simply are not prepared for this at all but they keep on trying and evolving and unfortunately so do the Whites. I just can't put these books down. They are that good. The books are not long, usually between 200 and 250 pages and they take off where they left off in the previous book. Do yourself a favor and read these books. The remind me of the Walking Dead books and right now I can't tell which set of books I like better. Now on to Book 4.
Pacing is still superlative in this installment (it's not a book - it's barely 100 pages; it's the third installment of a book). And Zed is still all over the place. This time, enraged over something he discovered at the end of the second installment, he goes berserk for a while and shoots up the university campus, drawing thousands of infected. But hey, this time around, Adair gives us the full breakdown of just how brutally the ogre and the harpy abused Zed, so, y'know, we should understand that he's not always altogether there (nice try).
Anyway, by the time Zed gets into the hospital and finds the remaining survivors (a quarter of the way into the installment), Adair finally gets down to business, finds his pacing, and settles into that tense, short-sentence style that drives the plot and heightens the emotions. The dialogue is better than installment two and Dalhover is a great addition to the cast. Also, developments among the infected are beautifully and chillingly introduced. When thousands of them swarm the farmhouse, it's a bad moment, and well handled.
Hopefully at some point a real editor gets hold of this thing and really has a go at it for content and consistency, not just typos and awkward phrases.
Anyway, three stars, bordering on four. I'll download the next installment, but I'm not sure I'm going beyond that.
This was a really good book but it was so intense . I wanted to laugh, cry, shout and curse. Some times all at the same time. You want so badly to be there to help, console and just be there to help them survive. Man, it really gets you going. I was telling my son, who doesn't really like to read much, about this series and how I thought he would enjoy the books. I think he wants to read them after I finish. I've never read zombie books before. My son and I both like the zombie series on TV though. This series tells the stories of the survivors of a horrible viral sickness that takes over the world. Infecting everyone. A few are immune and others get sick but after a few days of unconsciousness they recover their humanity to different degrees. Some come all or most of the way back mentally but are changed physically while others turn into mindless monsters that want nothing but to kill and eat their fellow man, women or child. Others are somewhere in between in varying degrees of consciousness . It tells of the horror and the pain of surviving and losing friends and loved ones in horrible soul destroying ways. It's a story of the survival of the few a d what must be done to survive, hopefully with your humanity and your sense of self intact. The author does a great job with all of it. I hope I'm making sense. I've been up way to long and am about to pass out but wanted to get this over and done with. Well, I'm waiting..... for the next t book. Hurry up, PLEASE!!!
