Continuing my trend of delayed postings, I finished Deadline by Mira Grant a little while ago.

I reviewed the first book in the series about reporters/bloggers after a zombie apocalypse here, and gave it a very positive review. Sadly, I didn't enjoy Deadline as much.

Deadline had the benefit of not having to set up the world established in Feed, but I think that also hurt it. The book feels like it is treading water in places, just filling in time between events. And there aren't a lot of events in the first place. After finishing the book, it felt like not much happened except for a little setup for the next book.

I'll still read the third book, to see how it all turns out, but hopefully it is stronger than this one.
