Interrupting Soliloquy

I enjoy most things, and don't believe that enjoying things means that I shouldn't rip it apart critically. Also don't think reading is the panacea of all ills, so I read a lot of comics and play a lot of video games.

Dread Nation

Dread Nation - Justina Ireland This book is a perfect representation of its main character, Jane. Bold, brave, poking at stuff that the folks in charge tells us to not poke at, and unremittingly sharp (and fun, even). In the middle of the Civil War, the dead picked themselves up and began to attack the living. In the interests of survival, the living set aside their differences to fight them off. But the sins and hatred of the country go deep, and even in such times of trouble, prejudices and the lines of race don't disappear. Not only is this book carved into a deeply satisfying point, it makes a great case for the fact that zombie stories can continue to be told in fresh ways.
