This is not the type of book I would normally read, but I'm glad that I did. Semicolons were used a bit too often, but the writing still flowed so smoothly with its sophisticated writing style that I barely even noticed after the first few pages. The plot of the story wasn't rushed like I was expecting. It only takes place over a time period of three days, except for the last chapter, which is an epilogue of sorts. Rather, because all of the details are relevant and interesting, the story moves [...]
Interesting take on an otherwise popular subject that leaves the reader thinking well after reading the last page. The characters feel authentic and actions/reactions believable. Enjoyable page-turning read, especially since the reader is able to come up with their own conclusions. The only drawback would have to be that the cover isn't very compelling. This is certainly one book you can not judge by the cover.
If, and that is a big if, we would have found this book on the shelf in a bookstore, we would have passed it by. However, that would have been a terrible mistake on our part. This is a great book. Thought provoking, and easy to follow. The characters are easy to relate to and understandable, with a plot that isn't that far fetched. Easy to read and very enjoyableWe received the book for free through First Reads.
Pretty good story :) actually wish it were a series so I could learn the future of the world :)
I won this book through first reads.At a time when everyone seems to be discussing the end of the world, or the apocalypse, and not to mention martial law (temporarily enforced after the bombings in Watertown, MA), Gravely has introduced us to "Gospel for the Damned." A frightening portrayal of what could happen to civilization if it was threatened with a lethal virus. Aaron Garrett travels to the remains of San Francisco, CA, where the virus was first released, to interview the Elliott family [...]
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewI’d like to start out by saying that the cover doesn't do this book justice. I wouldn't have picked it up had I judged it solely on that. Another good reason to read the blurb and possibly a page or two before deciding to pass on a book.Overall this book was very well written and the plot was solid. It wasn't at all what I expected. I like 'end of the world' type books but this had an element to it that made you stop and think abou [...]
This is a great read!A real page-turner, this novel takes the reader on a thought provoking adventure through a future quarantined San Francisco. Told through the eyes of a reporter allowed to enter the city for three days, readers journey through both the "clean" and "dirty" zones of the city and try to determine who was responsible for releasing the virus that has decimated the population
gospel for the dammed is a great story told from a reporter who has three days to go to san Francisco a virus ridden city and find what happen and who started the virus thanks to for the book giveway and to Gordon gravely loved the book
I got this book free through the book giveaway and I loved it! I thought it was very well written and it most definitely keeps you interested all the way through! This is a book I recommend to anyone, it's for sure worth the money!
Very interesting take on "zombies" I just wish the author would go more in depth with the zombies.
Not so much of a superficial action book, this is more of an intellectual thought-provoking novel with poetic use of language to convey messages. A solid first novel.
