Product Description

Review

'Red Hill is a fascinating look at humanity and endurance and is a nice, solid, standalone novel that would make a perfect Halloween read!' -Jess Hearts Books

'I prefer to end my playlists the same way I end my novels: on an upbeat note. So the Red Hill playlist ends with Gone, Gone, Gone by Phillip Phillips. It's a savory yet sweet tune about loving someone even past their last day, because loving someone like you might lose them tomorrow is the best way to love.' --USA Today

I have read all of Jamie McGuires books and LOVED every single one. When I first heard about Red Hill, the whole zombie apocalypse thing I thought...really?! You can do angels and badboys really well but im not so sure about zombies!! But boy did she pull it off! Within the first few chapters I was teary eyed and feeling sick. Some parts were gut wrenching, others were heartbreaking. I don't usually write reviews, hence being so short and probably quite unhelpful, but seriously...take a chance on this one you will not regret it!!

I do love me some zombies and apocalyptic goings on.

Red Hill is written in first person, but we're not just limited to getting the thoughts about the apocalypse from one point of view. We're treated to the views of Scarlet, Nathan and Miranda, the three main characters.

Scarlet is a mother of two daughters, Halle and Jenna. Working at the hospital and taking care of her children pretty much takes up most of her time. With no man in her life, she's an independent woman, getting things done and taking no rubbish from nobody. As the story progresses, we get to see how much of a strong woman she really is. Actually, I'm just gonna throw it out there and say she's a kick-ass zombie killer in this book, and there's nothing better than a female taking the lead role. She's feisty, fearless, and when her children are involved, she laughs in the face of danger. She takes control of situations that a normal person would probably lose their wits in. She will do anything for her girls, and that reflects through her actions within the story. I loved Scarlet. How she takes on board the fact that a zombie apocalypse is
taking place is how I want to be if a zombie apocalypse was to happen.

Nathan is an adorable guy, I have to say it. He works damn hard, and he's married to the most miserable woman in the world. I felt so sorry for him. His confidence is at rock bottom and he's in a loveless marriage. When we meet him, he hears the radio in his car inform it's listeners, "This is a red alert from the emergency broadcast system. Canton County sheriff's department reports a highly contagious virus arriving in our state has been confirmed. If at all possible, stay indoors..." He races to Zoe's school to pick her up.

So I must admit (shamefully) that although I LOVE every other book of Jamie's I was a bit dubious about this one. It seemed so out of sync with her previous books. It made me wonder why she wrote it and if it would be any good. My love of her writing style, and my love of zombie books made me buy it and read it. And I am so glad I did.

I found it so difficult to put down. I loved the beginning as was done in a different setting than any other zombie type book I've read before. So instantly it had my attention, and my attention didn't flag one little bit throughout. There were no boring bits that made me want to skip a few pages. There were no dull fluff pieces to fill out the chapters.

I loved the alternate characters and how their lives intertwined and how they developed throughout the book along side the plot.

I would definitely read this again and again. I recommend that you do to, you wont regret it.

I quite enjoyed this book but it lacked a bit of bite for me. The zombies seemed to be dealt with far too easily especially towards the end of the book. I am a fan of the Walking Dead and am used to seeing people struggle a lot more to survive where as with this book the apocalypse didn't seem to last that long. An okay book but a bit of a light weight read for anybody who reads a lot of zombie/apocalyptic stories.

This book led me to a conversation in work about zombies where I came to realise that having seen only 28 Days Later and season 1 of The Walking Dead means that I know nothing about zombies. This wasn't exactly surprising news to me, usually I hear that a book is about zombies, the apocalypse or anything like that and I skip it immediately. Red Hill however caught my attention, I started blogging a couple of days before it was release and EVERYONE was talking about it, not just those people who usually read this type of novel but people who only read romance were also saying how great this book was.

Given my lack of experience in this genre I have nothing to compare this to, I don't know if it's following a stereotypical pattern, I don't know if it's been told a thousand times before, I do know that I loved it and would definitely check out other similar books.

The novel is set as the outbreak starts, on the Friday morning there is word that they've managed to reanimate the dead on the other side of the world, by tea time the pandemic is worldwide and we follow three people as they try to get to safety. Nate, who is trying to escape with his daughter to safety; Scarlet who is trying to get to her daughters who are spending the weekend with their father and Miranda who is trying to get to her father's ranch with her sister and their boyfriends.

I found this to be surprisingly emotional, I know that should the zombie apocalypse actually happen I would undoubtedly be emotional when trying to protect or get to my family but I didn't expect this to be so well portrayed within the novel. It's something that really doesn't come across in a tv show or a movie, you don't get the same internal dialogue and description of feelings that you get in a book. I suppose that this is a prime example of why books are better than movies.
