In 2041, Georgia Mason, held hostage by a team of CDC researchers, must find her way back to Shaun Mason, who is dealing with his own problems, such as zombie bears, mad scientists and rogue government agencies, before things get worse in her post-zombie, post-resurrection America.
Each chapter begins with posts from the characters news blogs; they try way too hard to sound witty or profound. It's cringeworthy.
Shaun continues to talk incessantly about how insane he's becoming. "My time is running out! Drama!" Dumb. Not believable. I think Grant set the first book up well--specifically I mean Shaun and George's extreme codependence--but it's hard to buy that insanity is so predictable and STABLE.
The epidemiological science continued to ring more or less true, and that's about the best thing I can say for Blackout. It's not the worst book I've read in the last two years, but I don't recommend it even for zombie fans.
