Product Description

Review

The conclusion to the Newsflesh series is both satisfying and utterly believable. It's an impressive feat that Grant manages to make the humans more frightening than the zombies, and she never steps a foot wrong in her portrayal of the darkest facets of humanity. Haunting, thought provoking, and likely to keep this reviewer up at night for a while, if you buy one book this year, make it Blackout. (TheBookBag.co.uk)

Book Description

The gripping finale to the science fiction zombie-thriller Newsflesh trilogy. The truth won't rest, and neither will the dead . . .

After her last book I had to wait a full year for the conclusion to the best trilogy I have ever read. All I can say is TOTALLY WORTH IT. All the loose ends are tied up nicely and a couple of threads that I was worried would go wrong were explained in a believable and plausible way.
The story picks up with GEORGE waking up as a clone and it rattles along nicely from there. This is a book were you have to have read the series in order, or you will not get the full benefit of this trilogy .
I am not going to give away any of the story in my review, its too good for that, suffice to say my daughter and I were fighting over this to get first read, and currently she has not came out of her room for two days now, she is that engrossed.
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Feed made me burst into tears in public place. Deadline was emotionally exhausting. Blackout is...hard to judge.

What did I love? The pacing, which is superb. The final showdown and George's speech intermixed with the blog entries.

What I found disappointing? The ease of Shaun and George's meet up, very very few zombie threats, lack of showing of the intensity of emotional attachment between Shaun and George when they get reunited... Overall, the intensity of the series got toned down a lot.

You remember Buffy's getting infected in Feed or Dave staying to die in the airstrike just so the rest of the team could get out of the city in Deadline? There was this gut-wrenching anguish, which I couldn't see in Blackout. I also missed the blog posts that interacted and made their impact on people all over the world.

Despite my misgivings, Newsflesh trilogy is still miles away from any post-apocalyptic fiction you'll ever read. It's profound, thought-provoking and really really intense. Zombies here serve as a background to a world of political intrigues and terrifying global conspiracies. An absolute MUST READ!

I've really enjoyed this series, and had waited a long time for the conclusion.

This continues the excellent story telling and rounds the story off nicely, with options for further instalments left open.

There's not much I can tell you about this book that wouldn't give stuff away, but then if you're looking at buying this book then it means you've already read and loved Feed and Deadline: The Newsflesh Trilogy: Book 2, so I doubt there's much I need to say anyway - this book is a must for those who loved the first two.

I'm hoping Mira Grant does something else after this, as I'm a big fan of her work. I know she also writes as Seanan McGuire (Rosemary and Rue), so perhaps I'll have to try those books out soon.

For today though, I'll be sinking my teeth into the short story Countdown for the story of the Kellis-Amberlee outbreak.

Blackout brings Mira Grant's superb Newsflesh trilogy to a thrilling conclusion. Its a brave author who kills off one of the main characters at the end of book one but keeping her spirit alive as a voice in her brother's head then bringing her back as a clone in this book was just brilliant.
My teenaged son complained that there wasn't enough gory zombie action in this book as did another reviewer but this trilogy was never meant to be a zombie gorefest. It was always a well written science fiction based conspiracy tale that happened to feature zombies and as such it succeeded on every level.
The characters were all believable and well drawn and drew the reader in, the world was imaginative and realistic and the story kept you gripped as it twisted and turned with nary a clue as to what would happen next.
I for one couldn't put this book down and am sad that the trilogy had to end but certainly looking forward to what she writes next.

This trilogy of books, (Feed, Deadline and Blackout,) is absolutely amazing! I'm not going to go into the storyline, other reviewers do that better than I can, but this is the best trilogy I have read in a very long time. I bought the first in the series because I love zombie books but I have to say that even though there isn't much zombie action I hardly noticed because the story is that good! I have a policy that if I buy a book which is part of a series I wait until I have them all before I read them. In this case I am very glad I did because I think I would've been tearing my hair out between books! (especially with the jaw dropping conclusion to Deadline. Don't know about anyone else but I sooo didn't see that coming!!)
All I can say is that if you're a fan of zombies, conspiracies or thrillers you should get this trilogy. I'm keeping these books so I can read them again and I'm very selective in what I will read more than once!!

While I enjoyed the first book quite a lot, this third and final installment just did not work for me. There are too many parts that simply do not mesh together very well and the book tends to make use of "fortunate coincidence" a bit too much in my opinion
