Mehso-so

I think this novel has a particular audience among lovers of action movies. Sadly, that audience isn‘t me. This was a fun read and I‘m glad it was picked because it got me out of my comfort zone with all the action, but ultimately I like a little more depth. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I‘ll have this one out and on its way home today!

I enjoyed this combination of Walking Dead World with Superheroes. Sending out Tuesday or Wednesday @cobwebmoth Gratuitous picture of my yummy soup with a lot of garlic as I finished the book. Strep round two- and I do not have tonsils....

cobwebmoth Yikes! I hope you feel better soon! 3mo

#lmpbc #GroupW Here are my sci-fi picks. I own the two books pictured but plan on buying Recursion at some point anyway. Hitchhikers would only be the first book obviously not the whole series. Let me know your thoughts.

ETA: I‘ve never read any of these.

Chrissyreadit I‘m not a fan of hitchhiker. Tried to read it and just could not. I could be interested in any of the others though. 5mo
Avanders Ooh fun picks! I‘m suuuuuper geeked to read 5mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders @BethM that was my BOTM pick. I did enjoy Dark Matter. 5mo
BethM @Chrissyreadit if you had wanted to put it In Your picks I can always remove it from mine! 5mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit I *loved* Dark Matter. And I haven‘t read the Pines book, but I liked the tv series (and I know there were great deviations 😁). @MaleficentBookDragon is also a huge Crouch fan ☺️ (edited) 5mo
BethM @Avanders I only picked up Dark Matter on your recommendation and ended up really enjoying it! 5mo
Chrissyreadit @BethM I‘m pretty easy going- you are on the ball so see what you choose, and I will go from there. I‘m wondering about some classic sci fi, but not sure if too long- like 5mo
Chrissyreadit Or something by Octavia Butler 5mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders what is Pines? 5mo
BethM @Chrissyreadit those all sound great! While I‘d like to read Dune, it may be a bit ambitious for a one month read. 5mo
Avanders I‘m so glad you enjoyed it, Beth 😊😊 5mo
Avanders Ooh Nyxia is so good @Chrissyreadit (though I “read” most of it via audiobook!). Pines = 5mo
Chrissyreadit @BethM ha! I do agree. I even considered a re read of Stainless Steel Rat- it‘s been 30 years since I read it. I‘m in agreement shorter is better but I need to explore. Maybe 5mo
Chrissyreadit @Avanders you are the reason Nyxia is on my TBR! PS- just sent you an email 5mo
MaleficentBookDragon @Avanders is right I love Crouch. I read the Pines Trilogy in a weekend. I couldn't put them down. I was hooked from that moment on. 5mo
cobwebmoth I haven't read any of the ones you've pictured. I'd be fine with any of them 5mo
cobwebmoth Ack! It posted my comment before I'd finished! I'll try to get a list together and posted tomorrow. 5mo
Avanders @Chrissyreadit oh nice! Then I extra hope you like it 😁😁 5mo
collegecatlady I‘ve read Recursion but I‘d be fine with any of the other three! 5mo

Mehso-so

It‘s an easy and entertaining read, great to take on vacation. It‘s not a book that is going to make you think but sometimes that‘s what you want. Zombies and Superheroes. Enough said.

I wavered between going pick or so-so, there were some well done characters and situations, but ended up going so-so because it never really came together as something entertaining. If you're into zombie lit or looking for a second-rate version of Martin's Wildcard series, you might like this. 3 🏅 out of 5

The Avengers meets The Walking Dead....and a recommendation by Ready Player One author Ernest Cline. How could I resist??

swynn I liked it too, and need to get back to the series. 1y

This hasn't been the most well reviewed book on #litsy but when I picked this up at B&N someone has slipped a piece of paper in this explaining why it was their favorite book. So I'm doing this for you, random B&N customer who I will never meet.

Due to a horror fanatic roommate in college, I'm well-versed in #zombie cinema, and while World War Z is the BEST book about the undead, this series has a neat approach. (Respect to @Maggany for her clever take on this prompt)

I've read the first 2 books of this 5 book series set in a world where superheroes existed... and then the zombie apocalypse happened. #RockinMay

Thoughts in the comments:

TobeyTheScavengerMonk There's great humor, horror, action (when heroes turn you get superpowered undead), and loads of pop culture references. The book focuses on a group that have fortified the Paramount Studios lot in LA, now calling it the Mount. I just can't shake the thought that the author doesn't write his female characters very well. (edited) 3y
Cinfhen Sounds like a fun campy read! I always enjoy books with pop culture references ☠️🖤☠️ 3y
mandapants I have a weird fascination with zombies and post apocalyptic scenarios and worlds. I've not read World War Z. I am now intrigued. Putting on my list right now. 3y

No thanks. I can't finish this one. The characters are very stereotypical superheroes and it reads as if it's for a prepubescent boy, which I'm not. I don't think this is a horrible book, it's just not for me at all.
