This was more of a 4.5 star book.This series is fast becoming my favorite zombie series ever. Benny Imura in the first book Rot and Ruin was beyond childish. He has started growing on me in the last books and now I'm actually a fan of his. This book is very fast moving. With zoms/gray people/walkers every where. The virus is starting to mutate and I'm fascinated to see where Maberry goes with it.In this book the four teenagers are still trying to find the jet that they saw fly over in book one. [...]
Arrrrggghhhh, this book is so frustrating! I likedit, don't get me wrong, but it is my least favorite in all the books. Why, why, why, why did there have to be another group of wrong doers introduced into this series? Hasn't Chong had it hard enough as it is? Why the heck do they keep getting separated? Why are they always finding themselves deeper into trouble? I'm not sure frustrating even covers what I feel after reading this book. I did not like how it covered only one stinking day throughou [...]
This book flirted with three stars a few times along the way. I found myself getting frustrated at certain points and harrumphing or sighing in exasperation. (view spoiler)[I am still grieving for Tom and have not made up my mind if his death was the best choice for the series. I appreciate why Maberry did it, but I don't have to like it. Tom's presence made the first two books so rich and strong and dynamic. His chemistry with Benny -- the bond that they shared as brothers -- was special and de [...]
An in-between series book, with several major developments paving the way for a future ultimate conflict. It is worth reading if you are at all invested in a decent young-adult zombie series (yes, I realize that phrase may seem a contradiction in terms--however, they exist). Benny continues to waiver in that in-between land of almost-grown-up, warring with feelings of inadequacy, emotional loss and growing self-reliance. The group is in badlands-like area, and Benny gets caught in a ravine, and [...]
I need this! After the tragic ending in book 2 that left me in tears, I am sooooooooooo despersate to read this! These books just keep getting better and better! And I bet you, when this series ends, I am going to cry!Thanks Jonathon for adding such a good series in the media! P.S. The cover looks really creepy! But that is the theme right? Love it! =)OMG! THAT WAS THE BEST THIRD BOOK OF A SERIES I HAVE EVER READ! A MUST-READ! XD
Actual rating: 3.5 Stars*Note: I can't really avoid spoilers for the first two books in this review, so if you're planning on reading them, then you probably shouldn't read this! (Unless you don't care about spoilers––in which case, go right ahead.)So, don't get me wrong I'm a big fan of this series. Especially as someone who doesn't delve much into the whole zombie/horror genre, I find this series to be impressing over all. They're well-written, they're exciting, there are some terrific ch [...]
4.5 Stars“”‘He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster,’””Flesh and Bone, book 3 of the Benny Imura series was one of my most anticipated reads for 2012 by one of my favorite authors. I am not really that big into young adult fiction, but when an amazing horror author like Maberry puts a zombie series to life, it is sure one not to be missed. The story of the two brothers Benny and Tom through the first two books found many of the main plo [...]
NOT AVAIL UNTIL SEPTEMBER!!! DAMN YOU JONATHAN MABERRY!!!!!
PROTIP: Read the novella "Dead & Gone" for a better understanding of the background of Riot and The Church of the Darkness, which are major facets of this book.Hooray for another Maberry book! They really can't come fast enough. Flesh & Bone continues the story of Benny and his friends while they navigate the rot and the ruin, encountering everything from a dangerous death cult to a mysterious haven known only as "Sanctuary." Will it be everything they hope for?Maberry delivers on the th [...]
Actual Rating: 3.5 StarsMy Opinion Of This Book: Liked it._________________________________The first book in this 4-book series, Rot & Ruin, blew my mind away and introduced me to a whole new world of zombies. The second book, Dust & Decay, was amazing, but the ending left me heartbroken and I was left unsure if that ending was good for the story. Now Flesh & Bone, the third book in the series, is my least favorite, but I still overall enjoyed itE GOOD.~Chong: There is some major cha [...]
"It was why Lilah did not fear death. So many of the people she loved were waiting for her there" - Flesh and BoneI liked this book BUT Kind of annoyed at how many times Benny says sorry to the zombies he kills. I'm Canadian and even I think this is getting to be too much. He is becoming way too deferential to these zombies and my eyes are getting exhausted from all the rolling.And another thing, while I'm on a tangent and all, what the hell is up with Chong? He is the Lorrie of this book ( if y [...]
Another great book in this awesome series!! A felt it was a little action less then the previous ones but still good none the less. On ward to book #4.
Having spent the month since the devastating ending of Dust & Decay healing their bodies and, attempting, to heal their spirits, Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong continue on in search of the jet they have seen flying overhead. Benny and Nix are having relationship troubles as a result of everything that has happened in the last year and the lack of communication between the two. Lilah and Chong are still working out the details of their relationship with her being The Lost Girl and him a mere Tow [...]
This was so good. I am glad I waited for the audio version to be produced. with Flesh and Bone Mayberry adds so much to the Rot & Ruin world. I was not sure he could do it given the characters that were killed off in the previous book. But wow, he did. This is a great book and I can't way to read #4.
Holy cow. Justholy cow. When I get my thoughts a little better together, I'll come back for a more coherent review.
*Genre* Dystopian*Rating* 3.5-4*Review*“Don’t forget the first rule about the RUIN; out here everything wants to kill you.”Flesh and Bone is the third novel in the Benny Imura series. The story picks up a month after the devastating events of Rot & Ruin. Benny Imura, Nix Riley, Lilah the Lost Girl and Lou Chong are still searching for the mysterious plane they saw while trying to come to terms with Tom’s shocking loss. They have left California behind, and are now in Nevada where Nix [...]
I can’t believe it’s over! Flesh & Bone went by way too fast. This series is one of my most favorites, and one of the few I read as soon as the books are released. I know it seems like my blog is becoming a Jonathan Maberry fan page lately, but the man has an amazing gift for writing that I can’t get enough of.Flesh & Bone picks up about a month after Benny, Nix, Lilah, and Chong disembarked on their journey east. Leaving the only home they’ve known in the Central California moun [...]
This book is not an easy book to review. Why?, you ask. Well, I'll tell you but forgive me if I meander like a zombie after a bite to eat . I want to give the story justice!Firstly, let me assure you that it's a great book. I do love how Jonathan Maberry makes the existence of zombies a frighteningly realistic thing, with a human element that just adds to the horror of it. And this particular chapter into the 'adventure' of a group of young friends really brings that to light even more so. I do [...]
I just finished rereading this remarkable book but this time on audio, which I highly recommend! Just as good the second time around!Here is my original review:Another fantastic non-stop action book in the The Rot & Ruin Collection: Rot & Ruin; Dust & Decay; Dead & Gone; Flesh & Bone series! For the first time ever, I actually tried to slow down my reading because I knew that once I finished, the book would be over. I never want this series to end.The new evil doers were ever [...]
5 StarsThis was another twist on the fates of Benny Imura and his friends. After the death of one of their own; they are forced to fend for themselves in the great Rot and Ruin. With the continuation of their journey from their hometown, Mountainside; we meet a new set of foes The Reapers. These are a collection of religious zealots following a known serial killer great. Not only are they trying to survive zombies, but people who lust for the kill, too.?? And if that doesn't get you angry, then [...]
Can not finish. Loved the first one, the second was Ok, but this one is unbearable. If I had to read the phrase "Warrior Smart" one more time. Chapter after chapter is dedicated to reminding us how short our memories are by telling us again and again what had happened in the first two books. Not just a sentence or two but page after page after page. The book has very little to do with zombies but everything to do with awkward teenage love. But being I hate not finishing a book, I will TRY to rea [...]
The only series that has been able to fill The Walking Dead void in my life between seasons. Dropping everything else to binge and finish off this series. Love. It.
Actual rating - 3.5Another enjoyable read in the series. Looking forward to the next one.
I'm a writer. And when I read a book, I often notice little writery tricks. I can see where the story is going, and I can appreicate it on a technical level. But, what sets a story/book apart for me, is its ability to make me forget I'm a writer. Make me forget it's following certain paths that stories take. Make me hope and wish for something that the logical part of my brain knows can't happen. Make me forget I'm reading a story but instead glimpsing a slice of some other place. Flesh & Bo [...]
** spoilers for the previous books in the series**In spite of tragedy, Benny Imura surges on to find the airplane he saw flying through the air with the help of his friends, Nix, Chong, and Lilah. They still traverse the Rot and Ruin towards the unknown, but their hope stays strong. The world is a wild place now. Exotic animals hunt them. Zombies attack them in swarms and not just slow, normal zombies, but faster, evolving zombies. A death cult grows large and picks off towns and villages one by [...]
I'm a big fan of the previous two books in this quartet. The first, Rot and Ruin, was probably my favorite read of the year. The second, was almost as strong, and ended with heartbreak that I had to deal with for a few weeks before picking up the third. This installment is my least favorite of the three for a few reasons, but definitely worth reading, and thoughtful in its own way.Flesh and Bone is the third out of four books by Jonathan Maberry about the zombie apocalypse that has fallen on the [...]
I recommend Flesh and Boneter reading this third book in the series, I'm not sure if there's a happy ending for Benny Imura. and that kinda sucks.I would've finished this sooner if I didn't lose my Kindle last December. *sadness* Anyway, I'm not that quite elated when I finished Flesh and Bone. Sure there's still gore, fanaticism, and heartbreak. But the characters are aggravating, and add to that, that their situation seemed to be stuck at perpetual bad luck, I was crestfallen.Well, I did like [...]
Benny, Nix, Chong, and Lilah have healed physically, but they're still mentally recovering from the horrific events they suffered at the end of "Dust and Decay." They've lost loved ones and seen human beings do terrible things that forever changed the way they look at the world. Now Benny and his friends are on their own, headed east through the Rot and Ruin in search of the plane they saw flying in that direction months ago. And things get only more dangerous as they go. It appears that the zom [...]
Great new adventure with a horrible, fascinating new villain leading a lethal cult. Non-stop action, but terror and tragedy.Likes:* Great new characters!!* Zombie trading cards* How story is told by different characters hearing parts of plan(view spoiler)[* Hearing Tom's voice, I miss Tom and welcomed hearing from him* Saving little Eve* Lilah and Nix saving Benny ~ girl power!* Terrifying ravine scene* Using ATVs* Split Sanctuary ~ hospice monks on one side & plague scientists on the other [...]
At first I wasn't sure how many stars I was going to give this because by the end of the book I was pretty depressed. However, my personal feelings shouldn't affect the rating of this book because it was fantastic. I loved the introduction of the Reapers. I guess there are crazy cults no matter what happens to this world. It gave the book an interesting curve and helped to introduce some great characters (love Riot!). The ending for me was pretty depressing though. I think I was supposed to feel [...]
