Coming to You Live Reviews

  • Clementine

    Goddamn, this is exactly how a Newsflesh novella should be. It’s fun, it’s high-stakes, it’s something new, and it gives me more time with Shaun and Georgia Mason, the most enjoyable action protagonists ever. I would say I could live in this world forever, but I’m beginning to think that it’s more that I could live with Shaun and Georgia forever, whatever they’re up to.

    Again another excellent novella taking the story just a bit further

    This is a novella set in the Newsflesh world. I wouldn’t recommend reading this story unless you’ve read all three books in the original trilogy (Feed, Deadline, Blackout). If you haven’t read the other short stories, that isn’t an issue, though there are some that are mentioned. You also don’t have to have read Feedback (listed as #4, but chronologically takes place during the same time as Feed, but with a different

    This is a novella set in the Newsflesh world. I wouldn’t recommend reading this story unless you’ve read all three books in the original trilogy (Feed, Deadline, Blackout). If you haven’t read the other short stories, that isn’t an issue, though there are some that are mentioned. You also don’t have to have read Feedback (listed as #4, but chronologically takes place during the same time as Feed, but with a different group of bloggers).

    I really can’t tell you anything about this story without spoiling the original trilogy for you. Let me give you a brief summary of this series. George and Sean Mason are a brother/sister team of bloggers in a zombie filled world. Anything that is over 40 pounds can become a zombie. Blood outside the body can be infectious. There are systems in place to keep people safe, but nothing is foolproof. George and Sean run After the End Times, which reports on the news. Sean is an Irwin (named for Steve Irwin). He likes to find zombies and poke them with a stick. Irwins are known for their reckless need to get a story. George is a newsy, she wants to get the facts out to people, from a safer location.

    If you haven’t tried this series, then I recommend you give it a try. This series is full of really great characters. I love all the characters we meet with After the End Times. Such a wonderfully diverse group of people. They are a lot of fun. The world is really great too. Things like zombie moose and bears. Plus, all the things put into place to keep everyone safe from zombies and the issues that those things can cause.

    This book takes place after the entire trilogy. Sean and George are hiding out in Canada. That is until George gets a nosebleed and passes out. They call the only doctor they can trust, Dr. Abby. Dr. Abby forces them to come see her for an in-person exam.

    It was great to spend time with George and Sean. They are a great team. We also get to see some of the other medical professionals we’ve met in the earlier books. It takes a whole team to solve George’s issues. She is a medical miracle, after all. Some of the old gang also make an appearance.

    This isn’t the greatest novella I’ve ever read. There isn’t some huge beast to be tackled. The only mystery is what is going on medically with George. I do think, that for fans of the series, it is great to spend some time with George and Sean and the gang. I do really love these characters and love any time I get to spend with them.

    Narration

    Christine Lakin continues to do a great job with narration of this series (though she doesn’t narrate all of the books, she does do some of them). I like the voices she uses for each of the different characters. She does a great job with male and female voices. I really love her voice for Mahir. He’s an Indian by way of United Kingdom (because India was lost to zombies even before he was born). I feel like she really captured his accent.

    **I like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    This is a pretty satisfying update on Shaun and George.

  • Lauren

    This was a great novella for those who have been wondering what George and Shaun have been up to since the end of the Feed trilogy. We get to visit with the "siblings", and see them dealing with the fallout from previous events. George is learning that there are possible side effects of being a clone and Shaun is dealing with the continued trauma of George's death and resurrection. Along the way we get to visit with several old friends from the series and get a bit of an update on how things are

Along the way we get to visit with several old friends from the series and get a bit of an update on how things are progressing in zombie land. I definitely wouldn't read this novella before finishing the entire original trilogy, but for those who have finished and want more then this is a great little story.

    I’m pretty sure I read this novella before in another collection or something but i have no regrets about buying it this week and reading it again. Loved having another Shaun and George story and kinda makes me want to re-read the whole series again.

    I read this in Rise, and my opinion hasn't changed. I know fans wanted to know, but some doors are best left closed.

  • Roz

    I didn’t know this had already been released before.. and I didn’t even realize it until I’ve read half of it. I’m proud to say I have a great memory!

    I mentioned in a status update that this story would need a very good ending for me to give a rating higher than 1 or 2 stars. The ending was on par with the story.

    On the one hand, I do not really understand the point of having this story, on the other hand – of course, people are curious about the ‘afterwards’ part. It is somewhat unfortunate that the fourth book in the trilogy (heh) that followed a different group of people was set in the same time period as the first book in the series, other

    On the one hand, I do not really understand the point of having this story, on the other hand – of course, people are curious about the ‘afterwards’ part. It is somewhat unfortunate that the fourth book in the trilogy (heh) that followed a different group of people was set in the same time period as the first book in the series, otherwise it would have been the perfect book for a little cameo ‘this is what they are doing now’ to occur. That’s ‘easier’, in a way, than a full on story. At least for me. Otherwise you get a story like this – one that many liked, but that I didn’t. It was way too wordy, I mentioned in the same or different status update I’ve already referenced, that the used 99.9% more words than it needed to (actually, I worded it differently – that it could have been told with 99.9% fewer words).

    Long and short – not a story I needed, and I realize that it is my fault that I read it. I read it because I generally like, no, love the short stories that got released along with the ‘trilogy’. But, not really a story I liked – and I kind of knew hat going in (and no, I am not rating it the way I am because of preconceptions, otherwise the short story I read between finishing this one and writing this review would also have a rating around 2 stars, instead of 5).

    ETA: putting this review into the review box caused me to look at my shelves. You know one of the reasons I probably didn't like this story? Spotted it when I spotted what I'd already put on my shelves. 'Zombies'. 'Horror'. There is psychological trauma and a bunch of PTSD going on in this story, but no horror, and the only zombies representation was one wolf (if I recall correctly - Shaun is mentioned going out and 'getting' various types of zombies, animal or human, but the reader doesn't see that, just told. So this really was a navel gazing story with no action. I'm going to have to take a ton of shelves off this book I'd put on preread. No this isn't a horror, no this isn't a zombie book, it's barely post-apocalyptic - only that because . . . it is, but . . . bah).
