Zom-B Gladiator by Darren Shan Zom-B Gladiator is the 6th book in Darren Shan’s Zom-B series. Before I start about this book I would like to thank the author for writing this amazing series. Dam I have to wait until I get my hands on the next book! This book is my favorite one  in this series so far. Zom-B and gladiator is a nice combination, as the title suggests it is very interesting read.

B is training and into rescue missions with her teammates, she is one of Dr. Oystein’s angels now. But one day she is kidnapped by few people whom she crossed paths with earlier and gets into a place where some sick individuals are killing zombies for fun. Like a gladiator game between walking dead and helpless people. What will B do when she is stuck with this twisted people? Who will rescue her? Will she be able to get away from that hell?

My rating: 4 out of 5. I am eager to read the next books in the series as soon as possible. B is really cool and composed in all situations, she is a true kick ass heroine.

Zom-B AngelsZom-B Angels is the 4th installment in Darren Shan’s ”Zom-B” series. This book was a lot less action packed than the first 3. But it did answer some of the questions that I had been asking during the other books. Here a few more characters are introduced and the story gets a new twist.

After spending few months out side in London with walking dead people B has forgotten about normal life. But soon she finds strange signs all over the city-a “Z” plus red arrows. By Following them, B finds The Angels- a group gathered in the hopes of combating the evil dead and the forces that introduced them. It seems that they are also aware of this hideous and dangerous  joker looking zombie master. Whom are they fighting against? Will B find a reason to join them in this strange battle they all are training for?

My rating: 3 out of 5. I have been giving constant 3 stars to this series from the book 1. This is another interesting book in Zom-B series I enjoyed reading.

Feed by Mira GrantKellis-Amberlee is a fact of existence. You live, you die, and then you come back to life, get up, and shamble around trying to eat your former friends and loved ones. That’s the way it is for everyone.

We all know zombies, we like to watch them in movies and read about them. No idea who created such a terrific walking dead characters. ”Feed” is all about a world full of zombies. They die and come alive start killing more. This entire story starts in 2014 when the first time Kellis- Amberlee virus is discharged by mistake. People have no worries, they  have cured common cold, they have cure for cancer but no one actually dies too.

Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives  they have been selected to follow a political rally with future president. They are Bloggers, they live to create sensation among people. But soon they will see dark truth hidden behind the world. There is someone who wants them to leave. But Georgia is one brave newsie who breathes news and lives for that.  Will they ever come to know what is cuasing deaths of innocent people?  Even after getting control over the dead after so many years. Is American politics is affected by zombies or people inside it?

There are lot of interesting facts about zombies in this book. Like: its caused by virus and it can not effect small animals like cats, every time some one goes out to field and comes he has to go through blood testing, this virus can also cause some peculiar eye damage which most of the women will get. This book is all about blogging. Blogger with top rating is a celebrity there.  Georgia and Shaun Mason are top bloggers who broadcasts everything about the political rally to get their ratings.  My rating is : 3 out of 5. Its  a good book but in some places it is slow going. If you are expecting a lot of zombie action then it is not a good choice. This book is mixture of politics, blogging, and zombies.

World War z This is a major war against enemies, who don’t rest till the end.They don’t need water to drink or air to breath. They don’t rest because their motive is to eat as many people as possible. Yes, here enemies are walking dead zombies! This is the first zombie novel I have read, I liked  reading ”The walking dead” comic series but never read a novel before. Vampires and werewolves are my favorite supernatural characters, but I don’t know where this zombies fit in? there is nothing properly mentioned in this book about their origin. I guess it started after the world war because many of  the diseases started after that. I don’t know if I have to call it a disease or supernatural thing.

World War Z is a oral history about the zombie war. It is written in the form of interviews, where survivors reveal and share their horrible experiences from all over the world.  The book begins with how first few cases of this zombie madness found.  Later it explains how it started infecting in worldwide when  infected refugees started travelling, what did the government do to prevent this,how people suffered by loosing their loved once and living in terrible fear for years, fighting dead things. Every war have to see the end so that’s what happens here too. World war Z ends after many years but leaves damages on human mind and body forever.

I felt this book was very slow going and I didn’t feel that excited while reading. May be oral history is not my type. Reasons for finding this book less exciting:  I felt that  all   characters had similar voices. Subject was little dry for the zombie concept, because when you say zombie that word gives you lot of ideas. So I personally feel that it is boring, I want to read about people in real time, like struggling to survive, not being told how people surivived after it was over.
