I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Imagine that it is the zombie apocalypse. Your parents have turned and are gone, and if you go outside you are in danger of being attacked by your neighbors. Now imagine that you suffer from seizures. Now you are living on your own, have to worry about having enough medicine, and a seizure could possibly leave you at the mercy of the zombies, or kill you if it happens outside or at the wrong time. It sounds really sad and depressing right? WRONG.
Seizures is an amazing book with this exact plotline. When I first started to read it, I thought that it might potentially be a really depressing or nerve-wracking story. However, Sparrow Black manages to keep the spirit of the book lighthearted throughout. Even though Madeline may have some tough times, she always keeps her chin up, makes a lot of jokes throughout her first person narration, and tells a day by day story about what is happening during what is probably the end of the world. She even meets some new friends on her journeys.
I wish that this book were a series so I could hear more about Madeline and her adventures. She is such a fascinating narrator with such a way with words that you feel as if you are actually there with her. I almost read this entire book in one sitting, but although the ending didn’t disappoint me it did leave me wanting for more. I advise anyone looking for a new zombie apocalypse read that isn’t all that action-adventure, and all around generic, than this is definitely the book for you. I don’t think that there is anything else like it!
Overall Rating: 5/5
