The government and a soda manufacturer team up to create a drug that will make people passive and agreeable. The drug is believed to be a cure all for societies problems.
However, the drug has a major side-effect. If used excessively, people become sick and turn into zombies. Also, anyone that has traces of the drug in their system will turn into a zombie upon their death.
This is an excellent book. It’s entertaining, as well as thought provoking. The characters are relatable and it’s easy to feel wrapped up in their stories.
The zombie apocalypse starts when a new lethal injection drug is given to an inmate. The inmate dies, but quickly turns into a reanimated corpse and goes on a killing spree. The guards, witnesses, and the warden become his first victims and also turn into zombies.
The story is enjoyable and the characters are entertaining. My only complaint is the abrupt ending. It leaves the reader with a lot of unanswered questions.
Massive solar flares soak our planet in radiation and bring about an apocalyptic event. Millions die from the blast. Most of the remaining population (human and animal) become mutants. There are only a small number of humans left and they are fighting for their survival.
The story is captivating at times and full of interesting twists. However, the ending leaves the reader with to many questions and puts a damper on the entire book.
The main character is a former social worker, turned private investigator. She became disillusioned with the criminal justice system, so she stated killing murders, kidnappers, and child molesters that were able to avoid prison.
The story is full of mystery and plot twist that will keep you guessing. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and highly recommend it.
Victoria, the main character of the book, suffers with PTSD from an auto accident that took the life of young girl named Anna. Victoria must learn to forgive herself and find a way to live in the world.
The story is interesting, but some of the scenarios drag on for way to long and makes the book seem a bit boring. Also, some of the characters lack depth. They are extremely one sided and it felt unnatural.
I did not love or hate the book. I just thought it was okay.
In the future, the ultra-rich control everything. They sponsor the police department and the government.
For entertainment, the ultra-rich enjoy gambling. They developed a lottery by sending invites to a group of people. Those invited have the option to decline or to play. The last player alive will win several million dollars.
As you can image, some of the lottery players start to murder other players and the police department refuses to investigate.
The story is interesting and wild at times. The hero’s actions in the end, will make you want to jump up and cheer. This is a wonderful book and I recommend it.
The main characters in the book are a young boy that was abducted by a schizophrenic man who believes he is saving his dead brother, a stressed out cop with major family problems that is trying to locate the boy, and a woman on the run from the law, due to a felony warrant, that manages to become a hero.
The story is sad at times and will leave you despairing humanity. However, the triumphant ending will most certainly lift your spirt. The book is engaging and an excellent read.
