May Books 11) Feed, by Mira Grant

This was pretty much my first exposure to the zombie apocalypse sub-genre, but I must say I rather enjoyed it; set a quarter-century after the dead rose in 2014, it is the account of a group of newsbloggers who follow a presidential campaign in a much altered America. Good marks for a vivid depiction of a paranoid environment where everyone has to submit to blood tests practically every time they enter a building, and also for the central character and narrator of most of the book, Georgia Mason, whose sardonic humour at the horror around her just makes the impact all the greater when the humour runs out. I was a bit disappointed that the plot was not a little more complex; I could see the way things were going from the middle of the book, and hoped there would be an unexpected twist (hoping that even more after page 518) but there wasn't. Well, I don't think it will be at the bottom of my Hugo votes, but it won't make the top either.
