Drive by read huzzah But I'd picked up some other books from the library in the meantime so it was an impulse decision For the record I do enjoy zombie novels I've enjoyed movies and TV series featuring zombies cough The Walking Dead even if I'm massively behind watching that cough This is technically the third paranormal novel I've read from Jamie McGuire Providence angels Apolonia aliens Red Hill zombies Angel novels and alien novels have tended to be hit and miss with me for thematic but zombies? I haven't read many books with zombies I haven't likedThat streak was broken with this book but I expected that I'm convinced that McGuire just doesn't do sci fiparanormalromance very well Even with the potential for different explorations and expansions it's still cut from the same cloth and problems as her other narratives I just haven't really seen any author who's failed to get out of the same niche and offenses in just about every narrative they've writtenThis book trades between the perspectives of Nathan Scarlet and Miranda Nathan's a man with a broken family wife leaves him purportedly suffers from depression Miranda's a health worker trying to reunite with her family especially her two daughters and Miranda's a teenager concerned about exams At least this is the situation before the world descends into chaosThe worldbuilding in this book does not make a whole lot of sense I had to suspend a lot of disbelief for the situation with numerous contradictions and things that health care workers would never do as far as Blood Borne Pathogen training is concerned I should know I was trained in that frowns There would be so many other things to consider in the outbreak as well but considering this was a factor that was the set up or the story I looked past itCharacters weren't really developed past their template construction or set motivations Plus the genre cliche reared its ugly head here for both NA and zombie media considerations Granted Nathan's wife left him and their daughter Zoe behind but Nathan spares no time calling his a wife a bitch to which he follows up with expansions that she suffered from depression Scarlet slut shames her husband all the while talking about her babies I promise you between Nathan and Scarlet they used the word baby or babies times than in a Justin Bieber song I understood that it was a term of endearment for their children but the repetition was very annoying and what are the chances that they would use the same term of endearment for their kids that often it made me feel like the character voices ran together too muchYet those conflicts were a part of the vehicle that ultimately served Nathan and Scarlet's relationship later on It felt too convenient and the insta love didn't help matters much Don't get me started with Miranda I think Miranda's character was very shallow in presentation and the purported love trianglejealousy factor didn't work for me Neither did a certain character dying like it was an afterthought It was telegraphed by another character and conveniently after a tense scene where the dead character just so happened to try to hurt the sentiments of the speaking character Oy veyThe narrative dictation was ultimately tedious and boring in many places the repetition not helping contributing to the downfall of what could've been decent scenes McGuire doesn't know how to show these details particularly when it comes to character motivation There's a balance to be had there When the action scenes came some of it was okay one of the scenes where Nathan's daughter was in peril and which ended up in the sacrifice of a major character was actually done well but then it would be followed by things that would undercut said scenes of tension Which for the love of holy I didn't understand You have a scene that stands okay by itself for showing why would you undermine that by repeating the information and shortchanging it by trying to tell your audience what they should think about it via the character's mouth? Sense this does not makeRepetition and assumption was a big problem in this narrative Between certain turns of wording between the narrative constantly changing its reference to what zombies are in this novel It wasn't fun to keep up with and certainly not cute and even making the characters somehow zombie fighting experts by having them rely on portrayals of what they've seen in the movies? And constantly referring back to that particular factor in the narrative?That's lazy writing people Seriously that is lazy writing sighs But I digress Very little if anything worked for me in this read and it felt tedious to get throug
