If you believe that Saul writes about zombies, you're close, but no real cigar. The series, yes the whole series, is based on basic human nature. After sooo many years of reading, I pretty much know how people are going to react in most life and death situations. There are a lot of series books out there right now. Too many of them are predictable as far as their main characters are concerned. Some authors take away some of the choices about how you feel about the characters. John is the good guy. John is human and has flaws, but John ALWAYS did/does what he did for the greater good. John cannot and will not walk away from a situation. Never. John turns right, you are given EVERY reason, up front, about why John tuned right instead of left. It kind of takes the mystery away from John... In my opinion, and only my opinion, if you're going to keep John around, then part of why he turns right needs to be saved for later, when he decides to turn left once again... So on those occassions where John is running away from danger, we pretty much know that he will stop in his tracks to save a cat in a tree... BORING!
If I had to use one word to describe Saul's books, it would probably be "unpredictable". (Did you see that coming?) As the series unfolds, you get to make your own assumptions about the characters and their motivation, making them completely unpredictable as the series moves along. Saul's books are written to challenge you. To make you stop and reevaluate what you think you know. Saul MAKES you THINK! If you don't want to think, don't start this series. I do not believe I've ever stopped thinking when reading his books, any of them.
Most authors don't want you to have to stop in the middle of a paragraph and go look up a word. Saul doesn't care if you have to or not. No, I don't see this as a bad thing at all. Um, in some cases I suggest that you do stop the flow of the paragraph and go look up a word... I promise you, he will not come back and spoon feed you! My suggestion is to read the series. Don't expect the pabulum that you may be used to reading. I find that I've reread the series several times. Every time I find something new there. That's exciting! I do have the last book in the series coming up on the list to read... I just have to push through what I'm reading now... But before I read that final installment, I will read the rest of the series one more time, but I promise you, this will not be the final reading of this series!
This book was written by Saul W.Tanpepper in May 2012. I recommend this book to the permanent library of all thriller lovers, young adults or not. But be aware that you should read the first episode before reading this one, so you can understand what is going on and the interaction among the characters.
(from June 2012): Stayed up late last night and finshed off the 2nd episode of GAMELAND Episodes 1-8 (S. W. Tanpepper's GAMELAND) by Saul Tanpepper. This series is getting very interesting. These episodes feature a dark future, a big-brother type goverment like in 1984, zombies under goverment control (or are they?) and a strange game that hooks the masses. I am all set now for July 1st when the 3rd (of 8) episodes comes out. I then just have to "update" my recent purchase to get the new espisode. Each episode is taking me deeper and deeper into the world of GAMELAND. Some questions are answered, but many new questions pop up. Reminds me a bit of Death Race (Unrated) [Blu-ray] and Gamer [Blu-ray]. I am now 25% thru the series and I have a feeling we are just getting started.
So do yourself a favor and add episode one and this episode to your library. The story, characters, plots and subplots are very well done and I'm feeling pretty confident that you will gladly add the next book in the series. Enjoy! Well done again Saul!
