A virus has purged mankind, and the few immunes are sought by the authorities because eating their flesh staves off the disease in those infected. See? Nice little twist there, a good variation on the sub genre. The thing is, as with most books I've read, it's the characters. Lewis doesn't rely on black and white people, the good guys have flaws and the bad guys have a back story and areas for sympathy. Oh yes, and there are zombies too, they are mostly a background presence here, there was a lot to set up, plot wise. And it looks like there will be more!

    Dammit, this is absolutely a five-star story! The problem was that there were too many times I was taken out of the story by bad grammar and syntax. I'd gotten upset to the point that I wanted to give it three stars, but the actual STORY is too damned good. If the author could/would spend some time polishing up the typos, this would be a five-star yarn... without a doubt!

    The Dying and the Dead This is the first book of Jack Lewis's that I have read and I don't know why I waited so long. I loved the book and the characters were well written and I want to read more of them.. This is a story of a virus that causes zombies and some that are not quite zombies, which are humans but to stay alive, they need to be fed human flesh of the immune, called "mouth breathers". Then enter the bounty Hunter, Charles Bull! A man who hunts the immune, adults and children, This man The Dying and the Dead This is the first book of Jack Lewis's that I have read and I don't know why I waited so long.

Then enter the bounty Hunter, Charles Bull! A man who hunts the immune, adults and children, This man has no remorse at all over killing anyone, that includes children! Another character is Heather and her daughter Kim along with a boy that she is trying to rescue, Eric. She was being hunted by the Bull and captured. The kids were sent to a camp and she was on her way to the city when she escaped. Do I have your attention? I hope so, get this book to find out what is going to happen! I need to get the second book in this series so I can continue the story.

    A dystopian apocalypse This is a good book, well written in spite of the errors in spelling and mostly just leaving words out or putting the wrong word in. In other words, it needs an editor. But it really didn't affect the story or the reading of it. This is a story of basically two different groups of people.

You have Ed and Bethelyn (love that name) in one story and a woman and her child and a boy she takes in. They live in a society arranged after the apocalypse supposedly to protect the people. The Capita is the center of this city and society but only some live there. Both those who do and those who live outside it are in danger, in different ways. My first reading of this author but it won't be the last.

    Original Idea I thought this book was just okay. Liked the storyline, very original. Only problem was I didn't feel very connected to the characters. I didn't like them or dislike them it just felt very hollow. The conversations amongst people was choppy and frankly irritating. Of course it ended in a cliffhanger requiring you to buy what is probably going to be book after book. I truly wish this would be revealed in the synopsis of the book. Am I buying the next book. Absolutely not. I gave it thr Original Idea I thought this book was just okay. Liked the storyline, very original. Only problem was I didn't feel very connected to the characters.

    The Dying and the Dead 1: Post Apocalyptic Survival centers around what happens to people/society after the fall of man. To what degree will people allow themselves to be shepherded? How much abuse will people suffer to find a degree of comfort in a world turned deadly. How far will some go to achieve\retain power over others, how far to simply survive? Mr. Lewis developed his characters well which allowed me to care about their well-being. I look forward to book #2. Good read. Recommended.

    Had a super hard time getting into this book... it just felt like a book that wanted a storyline but just didn't achieve it. The story actually started getting good at Chapt. 13 " Heathers story "... and pretty much the entire book was... Ed's story, Heathers story... jumped around way to much I honestly just wanted to put this book down so many times and just give up on it ... but I didn't, I read it through... but prob wont get book 2 or 3 .. for at least this series.

    Twisted I did not like this book because there is not enough action. As in all zombie novels it is the other humans survivors must worry about. They totally disgust me. At the end of the book the characters and story became more lively and interesting yet, not enough for me to go on to the next novel.

    TONS of grammatical errors!!! Proofread your book for crying out loud. I REALLY wanted to like this book; the story line was promising, but the sheer amount of stupid completely avoidable errors ruined any chance I had of finishing it. I think I might have made it through chapter 6. When I have more time, I will post some examples of errors.

    I got 40% of the way done. Believe the reviews when they say you don't get much zombie action. The premise is interesting. But after Damien's story and Jenny ... No thanks.

    Too much like short stories thrown together, never came to a meeting of the people in the story. It should have had a focus they were all aiming for.
