    1. Oh, my How can I put this lightly Generation Dead is Twilight, but with zombies instead of vampires And it s just as terrible To wit Meet Phoebe She s a goth girl How 1999 Phoebe listens to so many cool bands, like This Mortal Coil and Bronx Casket Company We know this because author Daniel Waters assures us every fifteen pages that he is an expert on his goth rock Phoebe also writes poetry It s really, really terrible poetry, too Meet Adam Phoebe lives next door to him He s a football player Bu [...]

    2. In its Brown v Board of Education decision of 1954, the Supreme Court ruled that separate schools for black and white students were unconstitutional The schools for whites were often superior to their counterparts for black students and consequently the separate schools offered very different educational opportunities This ruling was key to the civil rights movement and efforts to end segregation.On September 3, 1957, nine black students were barred from entry into Little Rock Central High Schoo [...]

    3. Phoebe Kendall is your typical goth girl she wears dark clothes, applies pale makeup, and paints her nails black What sets her apart from the crowd is that she is in love with a dead boy, named Tommy Williams All around the nation dead teenagers have been rising from their graves and practically rebooting their souls They are also called zombies, living impaired, differently biotic, etc Although most of them have to wait a few minutes before forming a sentence, a special few can function almost [...]

    4. This book was so good It is both a fantasy and a romance book You can t just put it in one genre, which is what I like.This book was great I loved Tommy, but Adam was so sweet Throughout this book, I wanted to kill Pete He was so mean to all the DB kids And when he killed Evan I started cying.Then he killed Adam.After I read the part where he died, I set the book down Then I started crying hysterically I just kept saying No He can t die He can t He was so nice He can t die I wanted to scream, bu [...]

    5. You ve heard of Generation X and Generation Y Get ready for Generation Dead Generation Dead being known for its, well, undead Science can t explain it, and no one really knows why it happens, but American teenagers are coming back to life Known to the living as differently biotic or the living impaired These zombie teenagers try to live their undead lives, but as with any group of people that vary from the norm, there are always prejudices.Phoebe, a Goth girl, finds herself unexpectedly drawn to [...]

    6. 2.5 I really wanted to like this book YA, zombies, cool cover how could I not love it I expected a funny story judging by all of the reviews and I think that is where the let down happened This book is quite serious It s really about intolerance and how people hate There is startling zombie violence throughout the book There are funny parts but overall this is not a lighthearted read This is not a bad book but it wasn t what I was expecting After the abrupt ending, I m left feeling sad and kind [...]

    7. Source I own a copy of this book Some teenagers in America are dying, and then becoming reanimated The description the government is using is living impaired but the other kids just call them Zombies.Phoebe is a Goth, and seems to be developing an attraction to one of the zombies called Tommy.Can a norm and a zombie be together though And what will everyone else say if they do start a relationship This was an okay story, but it was a bit dull at times.Phoebe was a bit of an odd character I under [...]

    8. Possible one of the worst books I have ever forced myself to finish It starts out as a typical teen sci fi book about american teens who have started to rise from the grave It merges into the authors barely disguised soap box rant about society and racism for which the story falters and becomes a very distant second priority When the focus finally returns to the story in the last dozen pages the author hurredly whaps a bow on the ending saying that the reason some zombies are capable than other [...]

    9. I expected a light zombie book.Instead I got a pretty deep look into prejudice and social acceptable terms and all kinds of political soapbox discussions about accepting kids who ve died and how to change society to accept them Near the end, it finally became about the character and I enjoyed that I especially don t like the POV changes They are mid chpater and mid paragraph sometimes It s jarring and complete distracts from the story A simple break squiggly, change in chapter, etc, would make [...]

    10. Welps I finally did it I read Generation Dead And while most of you have reviewed this book I relly won t go into too much detail.Basically If you are a teenager and you die you can come back to life Small Town school is now over populated with zombies and it s a regular Civil Rights Movement for equal equlity Parents and kids aren t too thrilled about the new students but there is a group of kids that is willing to chain arms and go all Occupy Wall Street with them.It s pretty much a new form o [...]

    11. This isn t a bad read It s certainly not spectacular either though I ve read reviews where they have compared this novel with Twilight but with zombies instead of vampires it s not, it s better written than that, and nowhere near as annoying or cringe worthy.The concept of the novel was good I m a big zombie fan and this is the first time I ve read anything where the undead do not go shuffling around eating brains, but instead, try to incorporate themselves into living society as much as they ca [...]

    12. Okay, I admit I hated it for the first fifty or so pages But it got better as it went along, and somewhere in the middle I found myself getting hooked It wasn t as shallow as I expected it to be in fact, parts of it were pretty sad and even powerful I felt like it wasn t quite as good as it had the potential to be, though It would ve been REALLY good if the plot and characters had just been developed a LITTLE bit For most of the book, I kept asking, Wait, WHY are these kids coming back from the [...]

    13. More of a 1.5 score I m being generous.Well, I m glad that s over Let s see What was the worst part The completely uneventful plot The lifeless characters that, ironically, were not the zombies The lackluster romance The completely ridiculous bad guy that in several occasions told our brilliant protagonists that he planned to kill everyone yet they still scratched their heads wondering who was hurting their friends or simply ignored the threats in favor of parties One thing is clear, I am not re [...]

    14. I like my fiction as stories, first and foremost I read fiction so that I can escape from the world churning around me 99.9% of the time, authors write with some kind of meaning in their writing, a lot of that is subconscious A lot of fiction writers write the story first but, without helping it, some kind of theme will usually emerge from the fun That s fine What I don t like is when my fiction is really just a ruse to beat people about the head with a message they should be learning That, to m [...]

    15.

    16. Story 3 5Zombies are now a fact of life What was once considered the final journey taken by humans is no longer the case Not all people who die are staying dead, but for some unknown reason, this phenomenom only occurs in teenagers Now, the undead youth is forced into a world of hatred, discrimination, and fear, because the government has not yet given the undead basic human rights.Oakvale High prides itself in being a tolerant and accepting high school for the undead youth, and houses the large [...]

    17. Generation Dead is an amazing new YA series I was instantly hooked I love that it has action and it s paced, but it s really interesting Yo learn a whole new life and the story behind the living impared or zombies which the zombies rather be called by those who mean no harm in the word.The characters are easy to get attached too, Daniel Waters really grasped teenagers male and female I like Phoebe and Adams humor towards eachother and how they can trust eachother with stuff that they don t trust [...]

    18. Get ready for the next sensation waking up after you ve died It started with one strange case, and now it s happening to and American teens But having a second chance doesn t make living, or whatever their existence is called, any easier for these living impaired or differently biotic teens They face much discrimination, fear, and hatred, and they don t have any legal rights either That means anyone who hates them enough can destroy them and the differently biotic won t be able to come back af [...]

    19. Generation Dead by Daniel Waters was recommended to us by one of our readers, and after enduring this book, I have no idea what this person was thinking As you may have guessed by the title, Generation Dead is a zombie story In the movies the zombie is usually the antagonist, who spends most of its time trying to eat living humans however, in Generation Dead, the zombies are trying to integrate into society At this point the only zombies are teenagers, who come back after dying Science cannot ex [...]

    20. I was actually expecting something from this book A bit POW and excitement While the general concept was interesting the execution failed for me Every once in awhile there will be scenes which I enjoyed and thought was humorous For example there s a scene where a celebrity gives the group a pep talk It was funny break from all the drama and nonsense.It was whole stereotypical characters were what mostly turned me off though The hot, goth girl who is technically the social outcast and the super [...]

    21. The concept behind Generation Dead is incredibly clever and executed well by Daniel Waters I was expecting a book about teenage zombies what I didn t expect was a well written and complex young adult novel dealing with the universal themes of discrimination and acceptance Daniel Waters blew me away with this fantastic debut The compelling characters leapt shuffled off the page and into my heart Waters never stopped developing each of his characters they constantly evolved throughout the story an [...]

    22. I bought this because I thought the idea of teenagers dying and coming back dead quite original but I was very dissappointed There were some moments that I thought that it might be going somewhere but a lot of it was predictable girl falls for the new guy but has a boy bestfriend who gets jelous Nevertheless, I stuck with the story and it was ok so I decided to get the next book, knowing that sometimes the second book is much better than the first It was, but not enough for me to carry on and re [...]

    23. I really enjoyed this book about the teenage Zombie s differently biotic trying to fit in at school and with society, the Zombies were mostly all very likable, I especially liked Karen who I think is featured on the front cover.The ending was good and also a bit of a cliff hanger leaving you wanting to pick up the next book in the series straight away.

    24. Many of the other folks who have reviewed this so far have mentioned plenty of the good things about this book, and the other reviewers have also done a great job explaining what it s about I agree with most of them that it was a fun read, but there were too many things about this book that bothered me for me to say I liked it I give this book a middle of the road rating, and I ll explain what my fundamental problems with the book are, though I should say for the record that such things will not [...]

    25. Like many other readers, I found that the summary on the back of the book did not quite match its contense It was advertised as a zombie love story, but instead its really all about segregation and hate To be honest I thought this was a nice surprise because the resulting book I found to be much original and interesting than had it been like a typical high school romance I thought the concept of the teenage zombies or differently biotic was alright, but its never going to catch on in popular fi [...]

    26. I picked up Generation Dead by Daniel Waters about a year ago, but I just got around to reading it The cover was the first thing that drew me in and I m glad I finally cracked it open.Generation Dead is Daniel Waters first YA novel, but you wouldn t know that by reading it He did a very good job crafting a witty, funny, and sometimes saddening story about kids who die, but don t stay dead The kids come back as zombies or differently biotic.The YA genre is bountiful with stories about zombies, bu [...]

    27. To be clear, I didn t loathe this book but I did have a huge amount of issues that I won t proceed to list off It s an interesting premise, the idea that some teen deaths are revived in such a way as to come back to life The pool of those that are integrated back into life is so small that it needed to be addressed than a vague concept of it being of great interest to the public It was just a little too convenient in it s vagaries to sit well.The use of zombified my bad, living impaired teens i [...]
