Thanks for telling us about the problem.

See you next year! And, well, nothing did, not quite, but it came damned close. George lived and breathed reporting the news, blogging her complete obsession.
I had a few problems with the book that prevented me from giving it a 5-star review. I had a little glimpse of Deadline at the end of the Feed audiobook, so I knew that Shaun would be taking over the narration. I know absolutely nothing about virology so for all I know Mira Grant is making the whole thing up as she goes along, but she seems well versed in it, giving the element o I’m not really sure why I read this.

This is an author that nurtured and grew two very appealing characters in Feedthen tossed them away with shocking swiftness.
I absolutely loath Shaun, weird little man-child that he is.
Grant got a clean black slate with me and it didn’t really work out too well. And if you haven’t read Feedplease, please do. Which no one is allowed to question him about, either.

But all of that is criticism from my brain juices. It was like doing Sudoku for me. Because the conspiracy that killed his sister has just got a whole lot bigger, and Shaun is determined to get to the bottom of it — or newsflesu trying, which gets more and more likely the deeper he digs.
It’s obvious that Grant is not comfortable writing from his POV and so Shaun xeadline acts like a distinct character in his own right, which means Mira’s inability to let Georgia go. Just do me a favor and ask yourself this: But see, Shaun is the head nedsflesh at popular news blog he and his dead sister started a few years before. Even though I was sort of won over by George as narrator in the final few chapters of Feed, I thought Shaun was a better narrator and injected a bit more character into the series.

The only reason zombies are in these books is because it gives an easy excuse for everyone to be heavily armed and something to run from when she finally amps up the action.

Great world building, nail-biting terror with zombies to boot, this latest instalment in the Newsflesh trilogy is a superb addition and promises an equally superb conclusion.
Also if you, newsfleh me, thought that you were done with the infodump after Feed, think again. When I reviewed the previous book, FeedI noted that that there were very few zombie attacks in it despite it being called a zombie book.

Deadline will be in my top 10, most like my top 5 of His entire character, his mannerisms, the way he thinks, the way he talks to people, the fact he’s in charge and yet needs his dead sister to explain everything order to string even the most obvious plot devices together, he makes my skin crawl.
