Set in a near future world plagued by zombies and beset by a somewhat unpredictable zombie virus, this book spins an engrossing scientific thriller of a tale. It features very humanized characters struggling to uncover a conspiracy that keeps the human population terrorized and the zombies multiplying. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrillers and/or zombies and/or science fiction, (particularly medical science fiction), and/or a damned good story.

I loved reading Deadline. It's one of the best mid-trilogy books I've read. The narrative is quickly paced and transitions smoothy from action to suspense to emotionally engaging scenes. The traits of the zombie virus are intricate, surprising and interesting. The extent of the conspiracy slowly unfolds with many unpredictable twists. A surprise ending awaits anyone who reads this book. Even though I usually hate cliffhanger endings, I loved this one!

The main character, Shaun, is very sympathetic. I mourned the death of his adoptive sister Georgia a/k/a George along with him. He's a very real character that anyone, regardless of sex, can relate to. The virtual character of Shaun's dead sister, Georgia Mason, who resides in Shaun's head is distinct and intriguing. And, the supporting characters, particularly Shaun's team of bloggers, are quirky, entertaining and engaging.

With the exception of having to wait another year for the release of the last installment "Blackout," there is no downside to reading this book.

    Loved the ending!

    This is the second book of the Feed trilogy and is one of the most interesting zombie books I have ever read. The trilogy focuses more on how the CDC is covering up information on the virus and how an international group of bloggers are trying to uncover the truth. I gave it three stars because at times I felt it was a little lengthy but overall a great book. The ending is a real stunner! I can not wait for book three!
