Under a Graveyard Sky

Under a Graveyard Sky - John Ringo My relationship with this book (and the series it belongs to) is...shall we say, complicated? Complicated covers a multitude of sins.

I tried to read this book, and gave up in disgust because, well, everyone was just too bloody badass! I'm serious here. Thirteen year olds with guns and...yeah.

What I'm trying to say is that this is not exactly the most realistic zombie novel ever, as far as that goes.

What it might be is the one that's the most fun.

The zombie fighting? Fun

The boating? Fun

Saving the world? Fun fun fun!

But the most fun thing is actually the incredible badassery of the main character (you don't think she's the main character for, like, the first 50 or so pages but trust me, she definitely is) Faith Smith.


Every person in this book took a level in badass.

And I could talk about the sort of sexist stuff going on, like all the women being pregnant but, you know what? I don't care. I like pregnant women. I've been a pregnant woman. And they're still badass, even when they occasionally have to take a break in zombie killing to toss their cookies.
