Generation Dead by Daniel Waters

Review Of Generation Dead

Gen Dead

Synopsis

Phoebe is just your typical goth girl with a crush. He's strong and silent.and dead.

All over the country, a strange phenomenon is happening. Some teenagers who die aren't staying dead. They are coming back to life, but they are no longer the same-they stutter, and their reactions to everything are slower. Termed "living impaired" or "differently biotic," they are doing their best to fit into a society that doesn't want them.

Fitting in is hard enough when you don't have the look or attitude, but when almost everyone else is alive and you're not, it's close to impossible. The kids at Oakvale High don't want to take classes or eat in the cafeteria next to someone who isn't breathing. And there are no laws that exist to protect the differently biotic from the people who want them to disappear-for good.

With her pale skin and Goth wardrobe, Phoebe has never run with the popular crowd. But no one can believe it when she falls for Tommy Williams, the leader of the dead kids. Not her best friend, Margi, whose fear of the differently biotic is deeply rooted in guilt over the past. And especially not her neighbor, Adam, the star of the football team. Adam has just realized his feelings for Phoebe run much deeper than just friendship. He would do anything for her, but what if protecting Tommy is the one thing that would make her happy?

RagDollVampGirl's Review
When I First Picked Up This Book I Was A Little Perplexed. Zombies Living Among Us?? Trying To Fit Into Society?? Once I Began Reading This Book I Was Astounded And Very Amazed At The Brilliance That Is Daniel Water's Wonderful Creativity. These Zombies Seemed So Much Real Than The Ones In Those Gory Flicks. You Know The Ones That Eat Your Brains. I Never Understood How It Was So Hard For Them To Walk But They Could Easily Attack And Kill You!! Daniel Water's Version Is Much More Realistic In The Sense That He Makes It More Believable. Each Chapter Of This Facinating Book Brings More About More Intrigue. I Could Not Stop Reading This Book. I Was Dying To Know What Was Going To Happen Next. I Love That He Wrote The Book From Different Point Of Views Rather Than Just From One Person's View. I Fell Absolutely Head Over Heels For Tommy. Does That Make Me A Necro?? LOL!! I Actually Cried More Than Once In This Book!! It's Happy And Sad And A Very Good Read. I've Never Been One To Like Zombies But This Book Changed My Mind. So Long As They're Daniel's Version!! I Also Must Add That I Am Waiting For The Sequel To Come In The Mail. Could Zombies Be My New Obsession??

Rating 5/5
