Not what I hopedI couldn't enjoy this book as much as I'd hoped from the blurb The character Dev was the bright spot for me and his storyline pushed me to actually finish the book instead of abandoning it as I was tempted to do I could really have done without the continual snide remarks by the author about Republicans pro life adherents the phrase clump of cells was used multiple times belief in God etc Oh And the cause of Doomsday was never explained; perhaps a certain orange faced person in power hit the wrong button instead of his Tweet those are the types of non subtle phrases used by the author If those things don't bother you adjust my rating up a star It's just not how I like my leisure reading

I won a Kindle copy of Happy Doomsday from a Goodreads GiveawayFrom the jokey and lurid cover I expected some dark Zombieland humor mixed with horror and fear Oh yeah there's plenty of dead bodies gore and blood and gross stuff but I didn't blink an eye But that's just me It's hard to ruffle my feathersInstead I got the YA euivalent of the second season of The Walking Dead better known as the Farm Season Spoilers ahead that summarize everything you need to know without having to read 400 pages of filler Dev Brinkman is a teen with Asperger's; Lucy is a pregnant teen and Mohammed is an former wannabe terrorist They may be the last survivors left in the world after something unknown and unexplained has exterminated the population abruptlyThe three of them don't meet until you reach 83% of the novel but when they do nothing much happensI like how the author discusses the minor details that zombie and post apocalyptic movies don't have the time or bother to touch upon like What happens to the animalspets who survive Who does garbage pickup for the survivorsMinus the unusual protagonists it was difficult to like anyoneThe author spends an appalling amount of filler on Dev's issues Just to name a few How to jury rig a shower that doesn't affect his sensitivity to touchHow much he loves vacuum cleanersHis obsession with certain topicssubjectsHis desire to have eggs for breakfast every dayBack to vacuum cleaners againI get it; as an individual on the spectrum Dev needs to maintain a strict routine to stay calm It doesn't mean I wasn't boredI was bored I was Season 2 The Walking Dead bored when the cast spent most of the time walking around and talking about their feelingsFeelings are great and all but where's the tension The urgency The fear and horror It's the end of the world and nobody is fineForget about Lucy and Mo or Marcus or whatever the heck his name is; I couldn't muster any sympathy or empathy for any of them Yeah I know they were naive bratty and disillusioned but they feltphonyThen there were all the dark and difficult issues the characters had to deal with; teen suicide and pregnancy abortion bullying mental illness radicalization just to name a few which all had a whiff of a sinister undertone of politicizing on the author's partI got the feeling the author was trying to vent his frustrations on our current political climate through his novel and characters which I understand is difficult to ignore but I don't appreciateI read books to be entertained to learn to empathize and be shocked happy or horrified in eual measure If I wanted to read about politics and hate and terrorism I'd turn on the news
