    bikeracer4487: This is the 1st book in the Newsflesh trilogy that Blackout is the 3rd and final book of. If you stumbled across this book I HIGHLY recommend starting at Feed and then moving on to Deadline.

This is the third and final book about Shaun and Georgette Mason. They were all about the truth. The truth is that the series is great social,political, and mad science commentary. I could go into the gory details, but I hate those kind of reviews. I can say that I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout each book.Each had its up and downs....on many levels. But I did not want to stop reading. And there were many times my heart was in my throat. If you like intrigue...if you like zombies...go for it, commit yourself to these three books. ( )

This book is the third in Mira Grant's (aka Seanan McGuire) Newsflesh series, about a post-zombie world where the zombies are kept at bay in equilibrium attendant with some major societal changes, notably in the ascendency of life lived through the Internet. An innovative setting for a zombie novel and indeed, #1 in the series, Feed, was brilliant. Alas, #3 is somewhat of a disappointment. It's not unusual for a #2 in the series to drag a bit (it did) only to be rescued by the final book. But, in this case, #3 just goes further downhill. By no means a bad book, the premise just gets stretched out too long, the science --once plausible-- veers off into classic bad mistakes (how many times will we read --and roll our eyes-- about clones who magically get their original's memories - not again) capped off with a surprise and major cringe-worthy relationship blooming between the major (brother-sister) characters. Really ended on a off-key note. Of course, you must read it if you're reading the series.

I hate this book and everything it chooses to be.

Honestly. I just felt DRAINED trying to finish this. I dreaded forcing myself through another chapter, and another, and another, when it's clear where the whole clone thing is heading and when the writing is SO repetitive and when I was spending half the time reading the thoughts of the most boring mad-man in history. No thank you. ( )

Dedication
First words
My story ended where so many stories have ended since the Rising: with a man -- in this case, my adoptive brother and best friend, Shaun, -- holding a gun to the base of my skull as the virus in my blood betrayed me, transforming me from a thinking human being into something better suited to a horror movie.
