Since The Sirens isn't a particularly long book, but is slowly paced without much in the way of variation in speed. I often found myself willing Liam especially to just Get On With It! Isherwood has obviously spent time researching his St Louis settings, but I thought too much of this information was divulged in scenes that should have been snappier to maintain my excitement. Otherwise Since The Sirens has a good story arc and, despite being the first of a series, I was delighted to encounter A Proper Ending! There is plenty of scope for the futher novels - five at the time of writing - but, as a reader, I appreciated not being abandoned mid cliffhanger.
I love zombie apocalypse books and games and this is a great book for anyone who likes them too.
Cant give much of a review of this otherwise I will give away what happens but I would definately recommend this book.
This turned out to be a little different than I expected. I'm still not sure what my feelings are on where the author is taking the story. Grandma's visions were very much out there and I'm a little unsure on whether I like that turn of events or not!! I might have to read book 2 to really see what I think.
Anyway, the overall plot was ok. The Zombie apocalypse happens and catches everyone by surprise and Liam and his grandma have to find a safe haven. Nothing really new there but still enjoyable to read. It wasn't exactly a fast paced, intense read but it played out fairly well. I wasn't bored, which is always good and it held my attention till the end!!
Character wise, I liked Liam and thought he was believable. He is a typical teen!! When the Zombie outbreak happens, it takes him a while to believe it and then his first thoughts are for himself till he finally remembers his great grandma. Even then, while he would never leave her behind, he does plan a "what if" situation and a "could I" situation. "What if" the zombies attack, grandma cant run, "could I" leave her? etc. I think most teenagers would think the same.
In all, this was a good story with likable characters. It's not a gory, action packed zombie read, but enjoyable non the less. It's very much a YA Zombie read!!
*I received this for free via Audiobook boom. This in no way affected or influenced my thoughts.*
