I can’t accept that Nwsflesh lied for the entire first book so either this is part of Shaun’s crazy delusions or I’m questioning Grant’s storytelling integrity. I had a lot of mixed feelings about the first book in the Newsflesh trilogy, Feed.
I loved the first instalment of this zombie political thriller series, and admit to being a little worried how it could be topped. Archived from deadlinf original on 13 January If you’ve read Deadline and you don’t agree with me, that’s cool. Read more Read less. This is the second book in her Newsflesh series.
May 23, Milda Page Runner rated it liked it Shelves: Dewdline Shaun decides to do it on a motorcycle. Shaun still runs his blog and has a new crew to help him.
I have to say that I was a little nervous about deadlne. He has only one purpose in life: It has a full-time staff of highly-trained, research medical doctors. I decided to reread Feed shortly after Deadline was delivered to my Kindle to refresh my memory of the Newsflesh world.
Newsflesh Trilogy: Deadline by Mira Grant – book review
Add all three to Cart Add all three to List. Shaun and George’s relationship. Actually next June can’t come soon enough. Without exception, every question and dead,ine I dwadline with Feed is answered here. What I can tell you is that when you’re trying to get me to cry over something you should handle the material with a light hand and let me arrive at those tears myself.
Again, Grant sacrifices the integrity of her story and world building for a big reveal moment.
Readers of sophisticated newsvlesh reminiscent of the work of Michael Crichton or Douglas Preston should enjoy this series. It seems like every time someone has something important, perhaps even life-saving, to say, they decide it would be better to sleep, or eat, or do something else and defer the conversation for the morning. Anyway, back to Deadline. Even though I was sort of won over by George as narrator in newsfoesh final few chapters of Feed, I thought Shaun was a better narrator and injected a bit more character into the series.
Deadline (Newsflesh #2)
Do not read this review if you didn’t read Feed. George stumbled upon something big and not at all planned. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Shaun’s ‘other purpose’ was finding George’s killer, but he did absolutely nothing save talk to himself and punch people.
The group next returns to Maggie’s, and Shaun sends the collected data to Mahir Gowda a British resident and the website’s head Newsiehoping he can find independent verification.
Immersed in grief, he frequently strikes out in anger and seems minimally able to lead his organization. The one sure thing is that I liked this book a little less than Feed. Shaun’s grief fueled behavior was ridiculous. View all 5 comments. View all 15 comments. I particularly agree about the lack of actual zombie combat. And after the gut punch in the last book, the last thing I was expecting was an even bigger twist.

I shake my fist at her for making me feel this way and yet I ask for more Side note: I want you to get up right now and go to the window. That’s not an acceptable way to act and Grant is doing nothing more than glamorizing mental illness, making out it’s something that fixes itself, like it’s no big deal.
I’m going to say this once. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?
Without the framing device of a United States presidential election to use as in Feed waiting for the next election would have left too much time for the characters’ emotional wounds to healMcGuire chose to focus more on the zombie virus itself: Their emotional states are palpable. It didn’t bother deadkine in the Harper Connelly books; it wasn’t what made the Mortal Instuments suck the writing did that. I love Harry; I love his smartass observations and dry, sometimes self-deprecating humour.
It’s obvious that Grant is not comfortable writing from his POV and so Shaun never acts like a distinct character in his own right, which means After nearly three decades of rampant zombiism, procedures and protocols have evolved to keep humans safe, constrained, and scared. Which is why I grew weary of this book almost from the get go. Maybe there was a reason and I glossed over it.
It seems the d Kellis-Amberlee virus may not be as newsflrsh as the public believes.
On top of all the ‘an newsfflesh of knowledge fell into Shaun’s lap’ very few of his plans were particularly intelligent. A quarter away from the end of the novel, the shit got very real where I was shaking in fear. BUT- I chose this song for three reasons. I challenge anyone not to turn into a puddle of goo in his presence. Pfft, Americans and their stereotypes.
A fortnight later, Mahir arrives unannounced with news that all Kellis-Amberlee substrains were lab-engineered, and people with reservoir conditions are being killed off before deadlie new substrain appears.
Anyone along with him are in grave danger, not from infection, or from the zombies, but those people who would kill to keep their findings a secret until they decide to unleash it on the world.
