My Thoughts: "Generation Dead" really wasn't what I was expecting. I was expecting more action, suspense, and maybe a few faces being ripped off occasionally... I mean, it is a zombie book after all. However it was not like any zombie tale that has been told before. The zombies in this book are not violent, it's the living that proved to be the violent beings in this story.
For some reason, teens are not staying dead. They are getting back up soon after they've died, and try to go back to "living" the lives they had before their death. Some families welcome the "living impaired" teens back into their lives, while other families abandon them. The living impaired struggle to fit into society. While a few people have an open mind, most are still closed minded and unwilling to accept the living impaired. The undead are discriminated against and are victims of hate crimes.
I often forgot that there were even zombies in this book, because it lacked that supernatural element that I had hoped that it would contain when I originally picked it up. Instead I picked up a story that contained struggle, racism (er, bioism?), and the need for acceptance towards those that are different.
I look forward to picking up the next book in this series, because I am interested in seeing where the story goes from here. I feel like the story was just getting started!
