Reviews for The Other Life
The Other Life
After 3 years of living in a bunker, they are out of food. With their family starving Sherry and her father have no choice but to leave the confinement of their bunker to find food. Once they emerge they find the devastating truth.
I really like my own space and I think being stuck in a bunker with my family for 3 long years would drive my up the way crazy! (not that I don't love my family) (=
I say this all the time whenever I read a dystopian novel but I'll say again, I love post-apocalyptic/dystopian books.
I don't or I haven't read a lot of zombie books before but this was a real creepy book. Not technically zombies but humans contaminated with a mutated rabies virus, they 'cry' milky white fluid from their eyes, which is why they are called Weepers.
This book seemed short, but it was fast paced. I read it within an hour.
Sherry has a bit of a obsession, fascination or problem with numbers, but I guess there's nothing else for her to do other than count.
The romance between Sherry and Joshua was good, not instantly drawn toward each other, it developed over time.
