"You said you were my personal physician."The last of the trilogy about political bloggers after the zombie apocalypse, Blackout resurrects Georgia Mason, killed at the end of the first book, and reunites her with her brother Shaun to sort the world out (where "the world" should be understood as largely coextensive with the forty-eight contiguous states). There are some nice vignettes of the post-disaster society, but an awful lot of pointless running around to get our characters in place for the two denouements mid-book and at the end. I'm feeling a bit uninspired by the Best Novel nominations this year.
"So tell me: How long have I been a clone?"
Dr. Thomas dropped his pen.
(NB this is the third book with this title which had failed to impress me in the last few years - see also Connie Willis and Oli Smith.)
