Despite my young adult years being just a fond memory, I have thoroughly enjoyed myself reading about the exploits of this group of teenagers. The main characters are immediately likable, including the canine and zombie. Don't be put off by the classification as the storyline is rich and characters well developed enough for us adults that are maybe only young at heart nowadays. You'll most definitely recognize a little of yourself and people you know in this group of friends and enemies. And that's part of the charm of this series of novels. It's about the human condition but well balanced with humour, action, zombies and a bit of skull bashing.
I'm guessing it's aimed at a younger readership. It gets a bit repetitive in places and the science is pretty shaky (one has to ignore the fact that the human genome was first mapped in 2003 by the hundreds of people involved in Human Genome Project, not by Caleb's dad etc), but don't let that hold you back if you secretly enjoy a bit of light hearted nonsense.
I generally like this sort of light frothy teen paranormal drama and always read the series before passing it on to my teenage stepson... In this case however I will not be recommending or passing this book on
The dialogue is frustrating and the 'teachy' parts (when someone gets an unfamiliar word explained for them) are just irritating. Especially ironic when there is enough of a smattering of incorrectly used words in the text.
The 'preachy' parts are inconsistent. Lots of reminders about inclusive or non-biased language, then a comment about foreigners being 'obviously' not American (maybe it was ironic, but it didn't come across that way). Someone else has already commented on the eating issue, and that is also an irritation.
Oh, and I would also agree with another reviewer that (Onyx) the dog's thoughts are largely superfluous.
It does feel as though it has some good ideas to develop. Unfortunately it's not going to get the chance with me, I think.
Young adult fiction really can be better than this.
