Customer Review

on 30 May 2011
I picked up this book at a local Asda, just to have something to read. Personally, I totally regret it. Like many people have already mentioned, first part of the book is pretty good. But why read this and then proceed to hundreds of pages of literally nothing, is beyond me. I can't believe this is only the first book of three. What an nightmare. For the 500 or so pages, almost nothing happens. I found the main character, Amy, quite boring and actually failed to even care what happens to her throughout the story. Moreover, the constant drivel about the importance of the girl is annoying. She barely does/says anything. The whole idea with the virus itself doesn't even add up, some people become virals, others apparently can just live infected with superhuman powers (Lacey, Alicia). Others, like Zander seem to choose who and when they kill. Journey through the desert is just flat-out dull, described stop by stop and what they did there. Characters are pretty much uninteresting, and most of them get killed off anyway. Honestly, as I got closer towards the end of the book I was so sick of those Babcock-related nightmares and dreams to the point of feeling nauseous. An ending was a huge disappointment to me. So, is that what I get after plodding through hundreds of pages, some of which I had to skip plainly out of boredom? I am disappointed and will not be buying any of the further two books.
