Newsflesh Trilogy: Deadline by Mira Grant – book review
This review is relatively spoiler free. In my first review I commented on how I kept waiting for the strange releationship to bloom into something, but nothing ever came of it. And then the CDC doctor shows up, towing a ravenous zombie horde behind her, and the pace picks up about a thousand percent, racing from one end of post-apocalyptic America to another.
Archived from the original on I mean, it’s not like Feed left me begging for more so I have no idea why I gave Deadline the time of day. 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.

Playing with dead things just doesn’t seem as fun when you’ve lost as much as he has. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
A total cop out, but interesting non the less. Grant methodically made this devoid of meaning for me. I came to love the side characters in Deadlineespecially the amazing Asian Newsie, Alaric Kwong, and deadlind affluent and abnormal Fictional, Maggie. And that’s where all the excitement starts. The book is also a little heavy-handed and on-the-nose. The book opened at a high pace and although Grant does eventually get lost in her own recapping she didn’t torture me with it outright.

But all his friends, instead of stepping up and standing up to him for his own good, step aside as if everything is normal, and let him ride his motorcycle to his death. Later they get yet more secret medical research dropped on them. Because she brings news-he may have put down the monster who attacked ddeadline, but the conspiracy is far from dead.
I get that zombie novels, especially this series, are based on society, how it reacts, how to world changes etc etc, but damn, nothing happens. It should really be ‘sunshine and shotguns. No trivia or quizzes yet.
The terror is not from zombies, the terror is from a messed up, crooked, twisted government that has it out for this particular team of bloggers. Reviews of Deadline have highlighted the book’s improvements over Feed and McGuire’s avoidance of the problems normally associated with the middle deadine of a trilogy.
