Contamination by Jamie Thornton

Contamination (Feast of Weeds, #2)Contamination by Jamie Thornton

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A free copy of this book was received in exchange for an honest opinion.

I read the first book in this series and it was a pretty decent book. This second one has a lot going for it as well: the take on the ‘zombie’ genre is slightly different than the norm, not much, but just enough to make you curious; what I could see of the plot that was apparently going on in the background seemed interesting, which is why I bumped it one start to “it’s ok” rating; but the thing is, the book seems more about the characters and their past/complex love relationships than about the things that were happening to them at the time – which is fine, I guess, except that in this book I just couldn’t like any of the characters.
The main character seemed rather dysfunctional, and not in an overly interesting way, her original love interested seemed like a bit of a pushover/ass (I can’t quite decide), and someway half through I just lost all interest in the story because although things were happening, it wasn’t what I would have considered the “interesting” parts that the book focused on.

After a while of having it sitting there and not wanting to pick it back up, I’m going to give it as a loss and mark it as abandoned.
