Allison Hewitt Is Trapped book.

Allison Hewitt Is Trapped book. For a zombie novel, there's a hell of a lot of Jane Austen Sense and Sensibility "Oh, I simply cannot marry Ted, for he only wants to marry me because of the zombies and does not truly love m. ACK. That and for some reason our "motivated take-charge" Cement and concrete are not the same thing, Madeleine. I know you have an MFA, but surely you can learn the distinction. Well, it's petty obvious I've switched from reading to vivisecting the book as of last night somewhere around page 80 or so.

Allison Hewitt and her five colleagues at the Brooks and Peabody Bookstore are trapped together when the zombie outbreak hits. Allison reaches out for help through her blog, writing on her laptop and utilizing the military's emergency wireless network (SNET). It may also be her only chance to reach her mother. Madeline Roux manages to answer the eternal question all of us must ask ourselves eventually: "When the zombie apocalypse comes (and it will come), how will I handle it?" For my part, I hope I manage it with as much humanity and determination as Allison. But I would like to make a request for bigger weapons.

Allison Hewitt and five other missing souls are holding out in the break room of Brooks & Peabody at the corner of Langdon and Park. We are all in relatively good health. Most important: none of us are infected. Matt is our resident discerning snob when it comes to books. Miraculously, he’s never realized that having expertise in on. ly one area of literature pretty much makes you ineligible for that position. But he’s nominated and voted himself into the role and none of us have the energy or perseverance to pick a fight. He never outright sneers at other people’s taste in books, he just has this one tendon that works in his jaw; he thinks you’re a plebeian.

From the New York Times bestselling author of ASYLUM comes one woman's story as she blogs - and fights back - the zombie apocalypse

Allison Hewitt and her five colleagues at the Brooks and Peabody Bookstore are trapped together when the zombie outbreak hits. Allison reaches out for help through her blog, writing on her laptop and utilizing the military's emergency wireless network (SNET). It may also be her only chance to reach her mother. But as the reality of their situation sinks in, Allison's blog becomes a harrowing account of her edge-of-the-seat adventures (with some witty sarcasm thrown in) as she and her companions fight their way through ravenous zombies and sometimes even more dangerous humans.

I had mixed feelings about this book.
Allison is at work when the zombie apocalypse happens she and her co-workers hide in the break room managing to survive for awhile in there on junk food. Allison blogs about how she and the others survive, their trials and how they are doing in an effort to locate help.
I liked the delivery of this is was unique, having the main character blogging. There were even comment from other survivors under the "posts". It was interesting.
The beginning is a little slow, mainly because for the majority of it they are locked in the break room. Mostly it's them bickering about what to do and whats going on. Things pick up as Allison convinces them they need to leave and move upstairs. Finally some zombie killing, they meet another survivor who makes Allison question herself. She makes some bad decisions, and we see a very violent side to her. The thing is Allison had a habit of making reckless and bad decisions, yet people followed her because she was strong. People kept dropping around her and she'd just pick up more strays. It bugged me, even though yeah she felt bad and tried to go off on her own, she couldn't shake those loyal followers.
Another thing that disappointed me was the reviews claimed this to be funny, other than a few one liners I didn't find it witty or humorous. The plot was ok, but there was a lot of lag when they were in the break room, and at university. I might have stopped reading if the religious zealots hadn't kidnapped Allison. It finally broke up the boring parts.
Over all it was an ok book, but had it's issues.

First Thought when Finished: Allison Hewitt is Trapped was a fun listen that finally made it off my TBR stack!

Overall Thoughts: This book has been on my TBR for quite awhile so I broke down and bought the audio version so that I could get to it. It was so fun! I thought Madeleine did a fantastic job at building the world and making it something that I could actually see happening. Allison was a great leading character that made root for her all the way. The thing I loved the most is that these characters were real. There was no big burly superheroes that busted in and saved the day. There were real people fighting to stay alive. There were lives lost, loves started, hardships dealt with, and quests to find loved ones. It was just a great read!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Piper Goodeve / Length: 11 hrs and 8 mins

Piper did a good job with the voice for Allison but I thought the pacing was a little off in the beginning. Whether that was the story or the narration, it was something that I noticed. I haven't listened to Piper before but I would listen to her again.

Final Thought: Yeah for knocking one off the TBR Shelf and it being worth the money spent!

A competent editor could have worked some magic with this hodge-podge. There were so many gaps and inconsistencies that it eroded the whole outing. In traditional zombie fiction there is always that diverse group of survivors with varying moral compasses and a range of rationales for how they react. Author Roux does this aspect of zombie convention justice. But Allison's blog defies logic as does its various commentators, annoying character conflicts abound, and a lone zombie squirrel left me wondering...huh? But perhaps what threw me most was how easy the zombies seem to be dispatched. Readers of this genre need to stop settling for quantity and demand quality.

Zombies and a book store--what's not to like? My wife brought this home from the library and I made her renew it so I could read it. Ended up buying the e-book. I expected a snarky, YA humorous novel about zombies--that's how it's marketed. But I found it surprisingly serious and except for the cover illustration, could easily be an adult title. (The protagonist is a graduate student working in a bookstore.) There are some snarky comments and darkly humorous moments, but otherwise it reads more like a thoughtful post-apocalyptic sf novel and very well done at that. A sequel is in the works and should be out early next year.

I really enjoyed this. Allison was a great character to follow on her journey. She was not perfect, had her flaws, and was a book nerd like me! She made mistakes and was reckless at times which made me love her all the more! Add in some kickass people of color, cute and unannoying little kids, and an adorable mutt and you have a recipe for a different take on the zombie genre! I will be checking out the next book!
