Blackout Rise up while you can Georgia MasonThe year was The year we cured cancer The year we cured the common cold And the year the dead started to walk The year of the Rising The year was The world
Here s a book called Blackout that seems hugely popular with critics and the crowd, but that I thought had serious flaws despite a cool premise Now I ve written a long review going in depth into what irritated me so much Hmm I wonder why I ve got this odd feeling of deja vu This is the third book in the Newsflesh trilogy after Feed and Deadline in which Mira Grant created a future world set about twenty five years after mutated viruses created zombies In this future, where dying by any means cau [...]
This review is spoiler free, and safe even for those who haven t read the first two books in the series.Forget everything you ever assumed about science fiction novels or zombie thrillers the Newsflesh trilogy defies all expectations The story that began with a turbulent political campaign in a post apocalyptic Feed escalates here as the blogger journalists from After the End of Times continue their quest to uncover the truth behind the deadly Kellis Amberlee virus that has decimated civilizatio [...]
, please.i don t want it to be overview when i stop hyperventilating, yeah the only way to review this book is to squee over it like a little girl because it s the final book in a trilogy whatever i write here isn t going to make anyone who hasn t read the first two run right out and buy it, because these books build there is no way to only read the third book and feel like you have made a good decision and if you have read the first two books, obviously you are going to read the third one, so m [...]
SAFE TO READ And so the story ends I ve never missed some characters the way I miss these guys, and yeah I already miss them like crazy.You know what If you want to know how this all ends you ll just have to read the story and find on your own What you re reading now is my heart bleeding all over my keyboard, because this is how it feels letting this story go.Damn you Mira Grant, for making me love your world as much as I do, for making me cry for a fictional story and some freaking amazing char [...]
Worry not, my dears, this review is spoiler free.There are three things in this world I truly believe in That the truth will set us free that lies are the prisons we build for ourselves and that Shaun loves me Everything else is just details Georgia MasonThere s not much I can say about the Newsflesh trilogy that I haven t said a million times before, nothing spoiler free at least, and I refuse to spoil even the smallest detail for any of you As a result, this will be of an emotional outburst t [...]
I was over the top excited to read this final installment, but I admit that I was also nervous I loved Deadline, but I found myself balking a bit at what Alaric would call the Mad Science I have no flipping clue how to review this and remain spoiler free but I am going to try my hardest And I guess that means that I can t even really summarize anything that s happened in the previous two books Ummm there were conspiracies and deaths oh so many deaths , high stakes journalism and heroic bloggers, [...]
It s upShe answers our questionsThe Mira Grant InterviewYou know you want to know about Shaun and George We ask her badassbookreviews intervie
3.5 stars I enjoyed this, but maybe not quite as much as the previous two Some parts of the story felt a tiny bit muddled for me, which detracted from my enjoyment somewhat.Overall though, I still feel this is one of the better and intelligently written series of zombie genre books out there.
This is as close as we could get to an ending The world goes on Zombies or no zombies, political conspiracy or no political conspiracy, the world goes on.I think I like it that way Ah, the end is finally here Blackout the highly anticipated final book in the Newsflesh trilogy For those of you that have yet to read this series feel free to continue no spoilers When I first heard about Feed, I dismissed it immediately when political intrigue and zombies were put into the same descriptive sentence [...]
This was fanflippingtastic The best in the series I just finished and I am shaking I don t think there will be anything this good for me, ever again This is not a review, lol, I will be back to write a coherent and better put together thoughts Mira Grant is a brilliant writer I was in love with this book from the beginning I should say upfront, I liked Feed but not as much as Deadline, which I loved and not as much as Blackout, which is my favorite For me, Mira really hit her stride with Blacko [...]
Originally reviewed on The Book Smugglers WARNING THIS REVIEW CONTAINS UNAVOIDABLE SPOILERS FOR FEED AND DEADLINE If you have not read the first two books in the trilogy and want to remain unspoiled, look away YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED At the conclusion of Deadline, there have been some rather drastic revelations Shaun is immune to Kellis Amberlee, Georgia has been cloned by the CDC oh, yeah, and the adopted brother and sister have had a longstanding sexual relationship Blackout opens with a bang, mu [...]
This book No, seriously, this book I d sworn to take it slow and sure I was keeping to said goal, but once I reached the 20% mark, well there was no looking back for me I didn t even bother to hide the fact that I was reading this at work So picture me thus nose buried in kindle, often than not, with palm over mouth to keep from screaming It was that good Details I can only imagine the research that must have gone into this one I am very impressed with how she put in all those details yet still [...]
oh MY really is a good thing she s writing books, this world is too good to let go to waste.
I didn t love it quite as much as the others but the series as a whole is the mother of amazeballs I think I found this one a bit long not boring NEVER boring just longer, maybe slower Or maybe I was just impatient for POV A to meet POV B already It could be because it was on audio this time, too Anyways, epic series My favorite remains book 2 Yes, it s important for you to know P Now I will go cry in a corner because it s over
Impossible is something that stopped having any staying power when the dead started to rise Trust me on this one I m a scientist From the journal of Dr Shannon Abbey, date unknown.I m done with it Finally Phewd yeah it s bordering on the impossible so much that it goes beyond my believe.
My friend apparently really looooved a line that threatened a romantic murder suicide I m rethinking that friendship.Anyway, this book is of the same bullshit from the last book The main character s importance is overwhelmingly overestimated because the author likes to cuddle her darlings rather than being remotely realistic about what their places in the world building really are I don t know if I have the energy to write a full review of all the reasons I hated this book, but I m definitely b [...]
Final rating 5 5 stars It s the oldest story in the world Boy loves girl Boy loses girl Boy gets girl back thanks to the unethical behavior of megalomaniacal mad scientists who never met a corpse they wouldn t try to resurrect Anyone coming within a hundred yards of my happy ending had better pray that they re immune to bullets I freaking loved it IT was just fantastic, amazing and utterly badass This trilogy must not be ignored, it MUST BE READ trust me on this i gave all three books of this tr [...]
4.5 stars Sometimes the hardest thing about the truth is putting down the misassumptions, falsehoods, and half truths that stand between it and you Sometimes that s the last thing that anybody wants to do And sometimes it s the only thing we can do Georgia Mason.When I write book reviews, I usually save my recommendation of the book until the end But Blackout, and the Newsflesh trilogy itself, should not be put off until the end Feed, the first book in the series, is a novel that I would recomme [...]
The End sigh I held on, savored, and remained in Mira Grant s Blackout as long as I possibly could Stretched out the love and experience for weeks But I guess I had to hit the last page eventually Leaving the book home for the first time the other day, hell made me feel naked And left a true ache in my heart Blackout is filled with government conspiracies, mad scientists, zombie bits, running, and the ever present battle for the truth If you have read Feed and Deadline, then I have no doubt this [...]
Why have I spent every free minute of the last four days reading the same book twice Because it s a sci fi horror political thriller love story action movie novel all rolled into one, and it is intense.Okay, thing one about this review spoilers I m not going to put them in individual spoiler tags, I m going to spoil code everything after thing two and if you keep reading, on your head be it.Thing two you need to read these books in order If you haven t read Feed and Deadline, stop reading this r [...]
So, here we are again Mira Grant is back for one last kick at the Hugo novel can with Blackout, the last in her Newsflesh trilogy All the mysteries are cleared up, all the questions answered Georgia and Shaun Mason are reunited to kick zombie butt one last time and fight back against the government corruption that has put the entire world at risk Sort of I think.Actually, this book is kind of a mess.My opinion of the Newsflesh series has much in common with another very popular science fiction s [...]
This entire review contains spoilers view spoiler Shaun with an insane Georgia in his head and Georgia who is now a clone resurrected from the dead are back at it again Fighting zombies Drinking coca cola Dabbling in politics Briefly mourning all their friends who are dying for them Um, great Seriously, though Shaun is now immune to the disease He is the ONLY KNOWN PERSON who is immune to the zombie disease, and it s because he was close to Georgia What, is that something sexual that I have to r [...]
Book 1 3.5 Book 2 3.5 Book 3 3.5 This is definitely one of those guilty pleasure series It s unique within the zombie genre which is why I like it but overall the story doesn t offer many surprises The characters are often stereotypical Yet the story flows and is enjoyable It s like one of those trashy Fox CW series my wife will get into and I ll end up watching by default and to my horror I actually like the cheese If you re looking for something laid back and enjoyable this could be your serie [...]
5 StarsThis is an incredible zombie series that is geared for both the young adult and the adult crowd I loved how relevant it is to todays in your face media and in your face Facebook culture Mira Grant has taken the uber popular post apocalyptic genre and laid it down in a way that would be relevant in today s headlines The characters and the format of the writing is what make the Newslflesh trilogy stand out among the best of this genre.I am not going to give any spoilers away, nor am I going [...]
Five Stars Mira Grant is a guilty pleasure of mine without the guilt I will read anything she publishes.I absolutely love how this amazing trilogy ended Blackout is the conclusive book to the NewsFlesh Trilogy and did not disappoint in the slightest I am so thankful there are novellas and other tales in this world because I don t know what I would do it if it actually ended.Feed set the stage with George and Shaun, the two adopted children of the famous Masons in a post zombie apocalyptic world [...]
I do love the Newsflesh books The backdrop is a really fascinating pandemic scenario, set after the world has had chance to get over the initial apocalyptic outbreak and make the first attempts to re establish itself Life goes on, but so do the zombies People live alongside the zombies, but they do it in a constant state of fear and paranoia There s a strong focus on the role of new media and tech which, like the virus backstory itself, is based on solid, credible science Grant aka Seanan McGuir [...]
I still think Deadline is the most powerful of the series, but this was quite the satisfying end to a series that I will forever force onto anyone who asks for book recommendations I don t think I could write a real review without spoilers, or a bunch of annoying fangirling I have no words for how much I love this series.
Warning BIG FAT SPOILERS Okay, I actually saw that coming, but I m still kinda surprised she actually went there.So, if you have read the first two books in Mira Grant s Newsflesh trilogy, you know that Georgia Mason died at the end of book one, and was brought back to life as a clone at the end of book two.I m not a big fan of cheats like this Throughout the second book, Grant coped with having killed off one of her main characters in the first book by making Shaun crazy, so Georgia becomes a p [...]
Blackout the final novel in the Newflesh trilogy was one of my most anticipated books of the year I preordered my copy shortly after finishing Deadline with its mind blowing ending I literally consumed this novel Grant delivered everything I hoped for and Fans will be captivated by this brilliant action packed novel.It s the year 2041, the remaining After the End of Times team is in hiding They are wanted by the CDC and US government for their part in exposing the truth in the previous novel De [...]
When I finished reading Deadline I had chest pain I couldn t write a review because I couldn t think I really enjoyed this book but not quite as much as the first two books in the series, especially Deadline it s totally my favorite There will be spoilers in this review so if you don t want to know what happened don t read this Ok this book was action packed, our heroes were on the run the entire time Characters that you have gotten pretty fond of die And Georgia comes back Well she s mostly Geo [...]
