I had a *really* hard time getting into this book. I adored Feed. Deadline was ok. Countdown was great. But the entire first half of this book is exposition and setting up for the action that you must wait for slowly and painfully. I hate to say that because I love this author, but this book moved so freaken slowly until about page 365, when George found Shaun, and then the book finally took off. That's an extreme commitment from me to finishing a book. I've picked up and put down AS Byatt's Possession three times, each barely making it past page 100. And I've seen the movie! I know I love the story, but I cannot get past the plodding writing style. That being said, the remaining 267 pages rocked, and made me remember how much these books inspired me to want to blog more and wish I'd gone into journalism. The tech is great, the science is awesome, and the characters are phenomenal. My only complaints: the story is rehashing of several done zombie movie themes, the biggest of which being cloning. Resident Evil pretty much covered this one. No need to revisit. The best parts about this series were the science, the tech, and the world of news bloggers. I wish the author could have told a story that didn't recycle such a used zombie apocalypse plot device to give us this world, but I suppose this was just the story she needed to tell. I don't regret it.
