Man, am I glad I kept reading. From about the halfway mark on the pace increases steadily to the point where you can almost hear the engine of the plot screaming (along with several characters). It took me a couple of weeks to read the first 100 pages or so, but I finished the last half in a day. I could not wait to find out what was going to happen to these people I had become so invested in. Suddenly it became a 4 star book for me, 'cause I know I'll read it again.
Finishing the book I was immediately disappointed, as I often am at the end of a good read, that the ride was over.
How lucky am I that the sequel (One Million Dead) just came out today, then?
So, give it a shot - the ride is totally worth it.
Halfway through this book, when the author was still introducing characters, I started to lose faith that everything would come together in the end in a satisfactory conclusion.
I shouldn't have worried, Scott Cram does a great job of weaving the multi-cultural threads of narrative into a tapestry of rotting flesh and unfulfilled promises. I don't feel like I'm giving anything away in telling you that no one makes it through this tale unscathed. Everyone is realistically depicted, everything feels...right.
Very well done, I look forward to reading more from this author!
You find yourself torn by the thought of what you yourself would do to save the life of someone you love. Would you risk the lives of hundreds, thousands, or even millions? In this book, the answer is yes, and I simply couldn't put it down. In a clever way, Scott has us rooting for the bad guys almost as much as the good guys, just to see why it is they are the way they are. What do they have planned? Who are they really?
I read it when I cooked, cleaned, and drove. I woke up in the middle of the night and read. Without giving any spoilers, all I can say with conviction is that you're in for a wild read that leads you down dark dilapidated prison passageways and through the decaying mind of its inhabitants as well as its guards. Every character is deliciously flawd and perfectly rounded. Read it, you won't be disappointed!
