First Friday 56 of the new year! Let’s get started shall we?
Freda’s Voice hosts the Friday 56 meme, and I wanted to take part. Here are the rules:
1. Find a book and turn to page 56 (e-books, go to 56% of the book or however you would like)
2. Find a line(s) that interest you and post (No spoilers)!
That’s it. Oh! If you do it, you should add yourself to her linky which you can find on her page.
Here we go!
“You’re not going to die,” I said. It happened to be a fact: The sun would never come up in the west, Florian would never die. He was already a dried-up shrunk-down remnant when I first met him, had died in his sleep as an older-than-hell hoo back when this was the Northwest Territories, all Indian tribes and a few trading outposts. He remembered the Revolutionary War. (He was a Tory.) And the Civil War. (He was dead, no need to take hoo-sides anymore.)” -pg. 56 (ebook)
Nine years ago, Jessie was in a car crash and died. After she was buried, she awoke and tore through the earth to arise, reborn, as a zombie. And there were others-gangs of undead roaming the Indiana woods, fighting, hunting, hidden. But when a mysterious illness threatens the existence of both zombies and humans, Jessie must decide whether to stay and fight or flee to survive…
Reading this one with a coworker and I’m not sure what to make of it yet. I’m almost half way through (when I wrote this post), which is about how far my coworker did when she first tried reading a few years ago.
It starts out with a lot of characters at once, so it could turn some people off by being confusing at the beginning. But as I continued reading the story focuses on only a few of them so it’s less chaotic.
I may be understanding why she was having a hard time at the halfway mark though. The conversation I’m on now is pretty hard to follow and it seems essential to the plot on this mysterious disease.
We’ll see how this goes!
