Reviews of Freshman 15 (When the World Ended and We Were Invaded: Season 1, Episode #1) by Rebecca A. Rogers

Ecrivain Hongrois reviewed on Dec. 6, 2020

Very “cookie cutter” story.
Basic zombies, aliens, and characters.
Not bad if you like that sort of style.

The 37 page first part of a serial novel follows three seperate stories at the start of the zombie apocalypse. Shay and Ella have just met on their first day of sharing a dorm and are quarantined inside when zombies and police battle outside. A trip to the grocery store ends in a trip to hospital when Matt's brother is bitten by a dead guy. Lin is a Chinese American, dreaming of a big break as a country music star, who is getting ready to perform in a bar when zombies take to the streets outside.

The story was well written and it was a proper zombie story instead of one of those parody humour ones that are never funny. This features ordinary people suddenly thrust into the middle of a zombie outbreak and trying to make sense of what they are seeing. It had a nice mixture of tension and violence, which I like in my zombie novels. It gets straight into the story without wasting a lot of time on pointless descriptions and just gives you a brief introduction to each character. It is difficult to have character development in a short segment like this but the author does a good job of making me like the ones we have met so far.

If like me you refuse to buy these short 30/40 page segments when they are released in serial form, there is a full length novel of about 300 pages which features the full first season segments added together. I'll read the next part, segment two, and see what happens next before making a decision about buying the actual novel.
