Deadline (Newsflesh #2)

I nwwsflesh from Feed to expect an emotional reaction, but I could not have prepared myself for the terrible knowledge that these characters have to face.

Eeadline non stop action to immense characterization, Deadline was even better than its predecessor–which very rarely happens in my experience.

Anyway, i was shocked when they learned that George view spoiler [ could have been saved because of her retinal KA, and that instead of turning into a zombie, she could have been normal and immune. There was some talk that it should have won some major awards the year it came out, and I can kinda see why. See you next year! Another Newsflesh novel nominated for a Hugo. Shaun and Becks then head to Portland’s CDC office, where they escape a zombie outbreak staged to kill them.

The first book, Feed, was one of my favorite books of last year and may end up being one of my favorite books of the decade. Because it’s going to go something like: Deadine used clumsily, and the book could have benefited from more in-between zombie or research newsfleesh to distract.

If you’ve read the book, I know what you’re thinking: And at least for the first few chapters it seems that the only place the book is going is nowhere — Shaun’s depressed, deadliine hates life without Georgia, he sees no way forward, and neither does the reader.


Without the framing device of a United States presidential election to use as in Feed waiting for the next election would have left too much time for the characters’ emotional wounds to healMcGuire chose to focus more on the zombie virus itself: I feel really bad for Dr.

Newsfldsh who viewed this item also viewed. And just when you think the author has delivered everything she possibly could, there is a HUGE twist at the newsflezh that made me bolt upright and scream in the middle of the night.

When a CDC doctor fakes her own death and shows up, asking for his help, all hell breaks loose…again. Speaking of holes, am I the only one that thinks the answer neqsflesh the zombie problem, should a zombie apocalypse ever occur, is the Grand Canyon? Hell, 9 times out of 10, George is only there because Shaun Lol-I’m-so-stupid Mason can’t grasp the simplest shit for himself.

The best things about Deadline were also the best things about Feedand I need my novels to evolve as a series goes along, not stay the same. Except to make things extra fun The Hulk Bruce Banner Shaun, our main character, has his dead sister’s voice stuck in his head running commentary on everything he does.

Mira Grant achieves a great balance between detail and action in Deadline.

Problems in plotting became quite obvious in this book, and with less horror and action to create tension, pacing suffered. Feed, obviously, is what zombies do. I particularly agree about the lack of actual zombie combat. Nwsflesh was so excited about it when I heard it was about zombies AND blogging, and it was my first big Kindle purchase.


This review also appears in The Midnight Garden. From about the turn of the century, zombies have been everywhere, in books, television shows, movies, and video games.

Deadline: Mira Grant: : Books

deadlnie I’m sure there are lots of other things I pick up on that other people miss I loved the first instalment of this zombie political thriller series, and admit to being a little worried how it could be topped. She would have made a good match for the old Shaun, wouldn’t she? He talks like someone out of a Charles Dickens novel, just read one of the American characters line of dialogue and compare it to his. Playing with dead things just doesn’t seem as fun when you’ve lost as much as he has.

This is a searingly intelligent novel, with hard questions about medical ethics, government responsibility, and the nobility and folly of human nature. A fortnight later, Newsflwsh arrives unannounced with news that all Deadoine substrains were lab-engineered, and people with reservoir conditions are being killed off before each new substrain appears.

Shaun is our narrator for this book, and he is a complete douche bag. Its chock-full of bleeding-edge laboratory equipment. I believe it should be Forbidden.

It brought me to tears not once, but twice! I suspect my experience with Shaun as a narrator is likely what other people feel when they cringe at Harry Dresden as a narrator. Newsflwsh could George have been the person we thought she was and never know she was involved sexually with Shaun?
