Glad I found a book where zombies do something other than moan and try to eat brains. Loved the story and characters...even the undead ones :)

really good book, but the idea of the living dead kind of scares me :/

I really wish there were a 3.5 stars option. I enjoyed the heck out of this book, although I wish the ending had been slightly different. On to book 2, I guess! Really fun fantasy for those ready to move on from Twilight!

Loved this story up to the end. The twist just about killed me, and I thought it would ruin the next couple of books but it actually really kept my attention.

This book is great. It takes stereotyping to a whole new level.

While Generation dead does have the increasingly common quirky girl and supernatural boy combo, it doesn’t have the overblown prose, impossibly quick love and world consuming attracting that normally goes with it. The pace is decent, not rushing through things, and the characters, while they all fit into the common mould of young adult fantasy books, are solid, interesting and most importantly believable. There is none of the overblown dramatics that are usually found in a novel of this sort, which is a wildly refreshing change. As is the fact that the bad guys aren't wholly bad, and the parents aren't completely incompetent. Although the impetus behind it is a little hard to pin down, it's nice to see a relationship that is based on cerebral rather than visceral interest, at least in its primary stages. The ending is a bit of a twist, and caps the book off perfectly, making me hope that the library gets a copy of the sequel. Well worth reading!
