Feed - Mira Grant Just under halfway through, and while I want to avoid spoilers I am going to say I am liking this book a more than I thought I would. I expected to like it--it's about valiant news-bloggers after the zombies rose, after all--but not this much.

Each chapter advances the action, fills in more details about life after Kellis-Amberlee (the zombie virus), and finishes with a blog article from one of the team; I find it manages to have a presentational tone, rather than crunchy info-dumping, and since the narrator's a Newsie it's really what you'd expect. I hit the end of the second chapter block last night, and for the record I was not expecting what happened at all.

More as it develops. Meantime, I think this is turning out to be one of those books I need to loan out to people.

ETA: I've finished the book. I think the story greatly benefits from my coming to it spoiler-free, so I'm not going to include any spoilers. It is one of those books I need to loan to people--it is smart, funny, involving, and makes sense of the zombies-caused-by-disease idea.

Also, the author said she cried when she wrote one scene. I cried when I read it. Don't know if you will, but I strongly recommend you go and get the book and find out.
