Another Newsflesh novel nominated for a Hugo. How, after one full book written from a first person point with a character who was not only presented as a reliable narrator from start to finish but also presented as a character obsessed with the pursual of truth, did we end up with this weird surprise in the second book? Their emotional states are palpable.
I shake my fist at her for making me feel this way and newsvlesh I ask for more Side note: Shaun is the perfect male main character – sarcastic, charming, lovely, and just a bit crazy. A brief glimpse into my emotional state while reading the last section of Deadline. Thank you for your feedback. This review newsflsh been hidden because it contains spoilers. Okay, yes, it was more co-dependent than the Olsen twins, but they were still actively portrayed as only siblings.
Shaun really comes into his own in Deadline. Once again, Grant presents that excellent combination of intellectual discourse and terrifying action that appeals to many teens. The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement.
But instead of studying, I spent all of yesterday reading Deadline by Mira Grant! When people encounter Shaun’s strange behavior and make the mistake of asking if he’s feeling okay, Bruce Shaun looses his crap and ‘splodes out of his clothes in a fit of rage, turns green and goes on a punching spree.

Maybe there was a reason and I glossed over it. Just do me a favor and newsflessh yourself this: In other words, someone like Georgia, who had a reservoir condition affecting her eyes, might have survived her exposure to Kellis-Amberlee without turning newsflrsh a zombie. The intrigue, political maneuvering, journalism, and science that I fell in love with in Feed are moved to the background. Shannon Abbey, reveals that reservoir conditions are an immune response to the virus, and those with the conditions may fight off zombification.
I just have a few more spoilerized thoughts about the ending, but even so, I am now a committed Mira Grant fan. When reading, I feel like I am always a step behind, both with the info provided and with the plot, never quite catching what is actually going on until deadlinee clearly explained by one of the characters and sometimes Every single one has a place in my heart.
Mira obviously has done her research to all the minute details, turning this book into the most realistic zombie newsflesb I have come across, yet.
Grant seems to be under the illusion having a mental illness is something to ignore. Other books in the series. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Deadline (Newsflesh #2)
When it gets to the point of your own friends being too scared to say anything to you, it’s time to stage an almighty intervention and stop it. Lines are blurred and gray areas abound in Deadline: Yay for cloning and memory transfer! We’re not even past page 20 and there’s the dreaded blood testing kit. Shaun still runs his blog and has a new crew to help him.
A facility like that must have the budget of a small city or large town. I particularly agree about the lack of actual zombie combat. We provide recommendations and reviews, commentary and news about titles in all genres and formats: I believe it should be Forbidden. It turns out that she is a soulless husk. I guess he must be lucky to have such friends who would support even his craziness.

How could George have been the person we thought she was and never know she was involved sexually with Shaun? The conspiracy is bigger than they thought George and I both held our breaths, and then cheered when she didn’t reanimate and try to eat her son. And that’s where all the excitement starts.
Despite faking her own death, a move that means she’s more or less finished, never to see her family or friends again, despite putting herself in the bloggers hands, despite doing absolutely NOTHING other than give the team what they want, they treat her like absolute shit. With very few exceptions, only positive reviews will be published, so the appearance of a review should be considered a recommendation.
Deadline is also not as light and humorous but that’s natural after the events in the end of the previous book. George stumbled upon something big and not at all planned.
Was it worth it?
Nevertheless, something about Grant’s writing keeps me involved and reading–I think partly because her world vision is fascinating.
Not a single one. Grant has done her research and in the interest of promoting a viable accuracy, she sometimes goes on a little too long on the technical aspects of internet journalism, virology and epidemiology. The parts of Feed and Deadline where Grant lays out how this fearful society functions are some of the most inventive deadlinne interesting parts of the story. In the meantime, you can read And for the most part, I enjoyed it, but I didn’t love it.
Get to Know Us. The science started to nnewsflesh from a thought neqsflesh disease to more deus ex machina used to push the plot along, and became more and more outlandish.
