Lilah kept walking along the muddy bank of the stream, but she slowed and then stopped completely. I found myself getting frustrated at certain points and harrumphing or sighing in exasperation. And look, that stuff is crazy too and all, I just felt like it got a bit repetitive. The group may have defeated Charlie Pink Eye, Preacher Jack and all of their violent cohorts at Mabegry, but that does not mean they’re in the clear.
Benny has more right to grieve and yet, he always end up consoling her. It just got to jojathan point where I could barely stand her anymore.
Their skills are put to the test, not only physically, but intellectually, as well. He’s come so far and his relationship with the Lost Girl is very sweet. If that jet exists then humanity itself must have survived…somewhere. To survive, each of them must rise to become the warriors Tom trained them to be. He is great at hitting all the different emotions and character moments.
Then I feel bad for hating him because I certainly wouldn’t last a day in the rot and ruin, but still why does he have to be so annoying? If you read the Ledger novels written for adultsyou know that Maberry does action really well. The kids were younger and more naive then. And isn’t that what zombie books are about?
I understand why Jonathan Maberry made the decision to kill him off, and the whole thing about Benny essentially wanting to replace Tom was intriguing I know my reaction to this book is a little bit like my reaction to Harry Potter book 5. Wrong, there is a lot of him! This book picks up right after the end of the last. Of course there are zombies in this book!!
Sep 12, Kimmie rated it liked it. But that is the theme right? To see a cross over of my favorite Maberry character from another series gave me some much needed closure in regards to the end of book two. A small band of survivors try to fight back, but the odds don’t look good. The book has very little to do with zombies but everything to do with awkward teenage love.
Chong however stole the show for me. I sort of wonder if it was padding to expand the story. With their beloved trainer Tom now dead, Benny, Nix, Chong, and Lilah carry on their search in the Rot and Ruin for the still-elusive jet.
But the Ruin is far more dangerous than any of them can imagine.
Her rescue brings them to the attention of several opposing groups in the area, paving the way for a classic confrontation scenario. Without any series spoilers I will review the rest. And why oh why do I continue to read this series while out at the local coffee shops? Thoughts and opinions of guest posters do not represent those of TLT.
Flesh and Bone – Jonathan Maberry | Discombobulated Books
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. I did arrive at begrudging acceptance by the end however, and their existence does add an interesting layer to life post-apocalypse. Return to top of page. Jonathan Maberry is one of my very favorite authors of today, and one that should not be missed…My highest recommendations!!! But the characters are aggravating, and add to that, that their situation seemed to be stuck at abd bad luck, I was crestfallen.
Flesh & Bone
I really hope somehow he doesn’t like Jonathan Maberry is one of those writers that I adore. And a full richer plot that builds up for the final installment. And I guess the US ones….
This series is fast becoming my favorite zombie series ever. View all 3 comments. What I wasn’t as thrilled about: August jonathah, at 4: Benny is acting recklessly to prove to a disembodied Tom in his head that he can be the samurai he was taught to be. Sep 13, Caru rated it liked it. While not a perfect piece of literature, there is something raw and powerful in this book.
