got talked into reading this, and was reluctant as i did not think i would like a mindless zombie book, but from the first page I could see that it was not what I imagined. witty, funny, intense and a solid story from page one and throughout, once you read this book you will be desparate to read the other two in the series

By avoiding describing the initial arrival of "zombies" other than in short flashbacks, the author manages to create some three-dimensional characters the reader cares about. This is in marked contrast to some other works in the same genre which, although they are rollicking reads, remain cartoon-like.

Feed creates a world I could see myself in, and the testing regimes taken for granted by the characters are exactly what would develop.

You don't even have to be a zombie fan to enjoy it, as it stands up as an entertaining read in its own right. So much so that it's the first and only zombie book I have ever passed on to my wife...and there's no stronger a recommendation than that.

"The Good News: We Survived. The Bad News: So Did They".

Imagine a world where scientists have cured cancer and defeated the common cold. Sounds idyllic, but what if this medical breakthrough leads to the creation and distribution of a virus that reanimates the dead. In Feed by Mira Grant we find an Earth where humanity has done just that. The infected are a fact of life and everyone has been forced to live with the constant threat of zombies. In addition everyone has the virus.

Unlike most of the other zombie novels I have read this month there is a rather optimistic feeling to the novel's opening. The world has changed since the time of the initial outbreak, but humanity has persevered. We have learned to adapt. Everyone knows to take precautions when venturing outside, and when moving between secure locations regular blood tests are the order of the day.

The way people receive information has also changed. When the first outbreak occurred it was the blogging community who were first to raise the alarm. Individuals have moved away from traditional media and get their news direct from web based sources. Distinct types of bloggers have evolved including Newsies who, as the name implies, deal with the facts. Fictionals who look after the more creative side of blogging and finally Irwins who essentially poke zombies with a stick to see what happens.

Set in America the story follows three bloggers as they join a senator on the road to report on his presidential campaign. Georgia Mason is a Newsie who owns and writes for After the End Times. Her brother Shaun is the sites Irwin and Buffy is their technical wizard and Fictional.

The year is 2040, twenty six years after a zombie plague has changed the world beyond recognition. People live in fear of the wandering hordes who's only urge is to feed and spread the contagion. Georgia and Sean Mason are young journalists who run an online news blog and are invited to accompany Senator Peter Ryan in his bid to be elected President of the United States. As the campaign progresses life becomes more and more dangerous as a conspiracey takes place and deadly secrets wait to be discovered. This is a very well written and especially well thought out and researched novel. The success of a zombie novel has to be based on writing a great story in the first place and setting it against the zombie holocaust and this is something that Mira has done perfectly. The creation of the virus is well thought out and also the way that life has changed with all the protective measures that ordinary people have to take to stay alive. Also well researched and plausible is the way that she has developed technology to fit this new world and her descriptions of the new journalism are spot on too. I could find nothing to fault this book, the characters are well padded out and sympathetic, the story line is both touching and exciting and will appeal to readers of both genders. She doesn't dwell on the actual outbreak because it happened before our heroes were born and yet she uses it to differentiate between the attitudes of the people who lived through it and those born after it. I can't praise this novel enough but I must warn you not to read the extras at the back before finsihing it, they contain a massive spoiler. I can't wait for book two.

***MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS***

After watching The Walking Dead I felt I needed a zombie novel to bridge the gap. Feed seemed to get some good reviews and so I thought I'd give it a whirl. The plot centers around a couple of journalists / bloggers following a political campaign for president of The United States. This is all set in 'post outbreak' America which makes the whole thing much more interesting. The two young journalists are your typical tank-girl / nerd-jock stereotypes and they uncover a political conspiracy whilst encountering some zombie outbreaks along the way. So:

*The Good*

I liked the blogger / journalist angle; it felt fresh and it gave the two main characters an edge.

I liked the main thrust of the story, on the campaign trail and the use of How To Deal With The Undead as a manifesto pledge. It felt quite tangible.

I thought the plotting of why the undead rose from the dead and how the virus manifests itself is beautifully conceived and is one of the most impressive zombie raison d'etres I have ever read.

The sci-fi and the technology is wonderful - superbly imagined, credible and well depicted.

*The Bad*

The actual conspiracy has quite a few major plot holes in it, big enough for a zombie to walk through. I sometimes felt that the plot was paced very slowly at times and then went very fast and then slow and then super, super fast and then to a crawl...I felt it should have raced towards a finale...and it just didn't.

The characters (apart from Senator Ryman) are wooden, one dimensional and all speak with similar voices.

The dialogue is poor most of the time and reads quite badly. Georgia Mason is just too flippant and jingoistic to sound even vaguely like a real person.
