So while I did like the story, and thought it had specific plot and structure, about halfway in I felt like I was trudging along, just pushing to get through it. There is another book in this series, but apparently it is a companion book, happening at the same time or before this one. Same setting but completely different characters with no crossover. I probably won't continue on.

I want to say zombies but its the wrong word, the illness that swept the world doesnt fit the regular zombie criteria. The effected are more enraged cannibals then reanimated dead.

Nella cant quiet get over the fact that her name makes me want to have nutella on toast every time i read it but thats the only issue ive had with this book our resident physcologist is tasked to help the infected readjust after thier illness. She'll be much needed as it turns out the cured, remember everything that they've done. Six years later and Nella is tasked with evaluating the mental health of Dr Pazza and his assitant Ann, two of those responsible for releasing the illness about to stand trial for their crimes.
During these meetings with Dr Pazza and his lawyer Frank, Nella discovers things may not be as over as they appear to be. Can she stop it with the help of Frank and her friends? I have thoughly enjoyed this book. The concept is a fresh take on the apocolyptic wrting genre. The stories that the cured tell about thier actions are moving and haunting at the same time.
The budding relationship between Nella and Frank a cured witha lot of guilt hits subtly upon social restrictions in relationships still prelevent in todays society. Gould creates a realistic and believeable post apocolyptic setting with a well thought out plot line. I found it increasingly difficult to put down. My only suggestion when reading this is make sure you have Nutella in the cupboard Sep 23, Mary Jo rated it liked it. I loved the concept of this book: But it's like this writer took a great idea and didn't really do anything with it.
I liked the characters well enough, but near the end, it's like the writer just had to hurry up and wrap it up with a happy ending, which was cheesy and over the top. Trying to tack on a twist ending was predictable and just made me roll my eyes I loved the concept of this book: Trying to tack on a twist ending was predictable and just made me roll my eyes. I wish a better writer would take this idea and start all over again with it. Oct 12, Molly rated it liked it.
Really loved the premise of the book. And those cured remember everything they did while zombified? I did enjoy the twist at the end! There are more books in the series, but I'm not sure I'll read them.
Also, it seemed as though the book didn't have a decent editor I've never read a book that examines how society would go about rebuilding itself post-zombie-apocalypse. It's a fantastic concept, and Gould does a fairly good job fleshing out some of the details.
The main problem I had with the story was the seemingly unnecessary romantic element—it seemed incredibly forced, and the neatly tied-up fairy tale ending at least in the arc of the two characters in question was a bit annoying. Started out great - went on forever - ended pretty hokey. Mar 01, Amber Ziegler rated it it was amazing. This is an amazing series with a great plot line that kept me at the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read the next one! Nov 25, Janene rated it really liked it Shelves: In all the zombie fiction I've read over the years, I can safely say I've never read this spin on it if you know of others, please comment.
In this first installment, a cure has been found and the story is told through the eyes of the Immune and the Cured. What would it be like to wake up from this nightmare one day and totally remember everything you did as a monster and who you dined on? Think there would be psychological issues? How about physical appearance? While dealing with all that, ma In all the zombie fiction I've read over the years, I can safely say I've never read this spin on it if you know of others, please comment.
While dealing with all that, maybe you find out the there could be a deadly pathogen out there This one held my attention, even with all the romance and corny chapter headings. Do I purchase 2 in the series? Oct 26, Krisaundra rated it it was amazing. This is a book that will always stay with me to some degree. The concept is both brilliant yet chilling. I read a lot of post apocalyptic novels. As time passed and in some ways I became more in control of myself and the world around me I couldn't forget how I got to where I was, often questioning myself, or feeling remorse for words and actions I wondered who I'd become to be the way I had been at times.
But I can't change what I have done and do my best to make peace with those years. Obviously I didn't become a cannibal, or turn into a zombie but I could still very much relate to having to live with things I had done that hurt some people causing me to lose loved ones and be forced to live with things that I regret deeply. For the characters in this book to have become zombies, killing not only innocent people they came across but even worse, often eating their loved ones, tearing at them until they either died, or joined the ranks of the living dead.
Being cured of the zombie virus should have been a blessing but to be cured yet retain all the memories of their actions, plus have most people unable to forget, or forgive, what they had done when infected with the virus made moving on next to impossible. The characters and story line were so incredibly well written that I am certain even without me being able to relate quite deeply based upon my own experiences. This is a book filled with horrors that is so well written I think most readers will empathize for the so called monsters the former zombies and root for them to be given a second chance at their restored humanity.
May 29, John rated it it was ok. Get rid of the romance subplot and this novel becomes a short story. I don't mean that as a point of criticism either, just stating it as reality. If you go into "After the Cure" expecting something closer to horror or post-apocalyptic thriller then you will be disappointed but if you like romances AND zombies then you just may love it. I fall somewhere in the middle. The premise for this book is awesome. I've read hundreds of zombie books, some good After The Cure promised something different, and to a point it delivered on that promise.
The idea of exploring a world after a cure is discovered is a unique twist on the genre. Instead we get bogged down by a romance subplot that takes up the majority of the book. To make matters worse the world building, a very important element to a story like this, was pretty lousy. It really failed to live up to its expectations on all the elements that really sold the book to me in the first place.
I can't really comment on the romance subplot except to say that I didn't buy it. They didn't seem to have much chemistry. I didn't think any of the characters in this book were very interesting. I applaud the author for trying something new but I think the mistake here is that the audience for this type of book are probably not the people who will be most eager to read it based on the description. Aug 19, E. I picked up "After the Cure" because the premise really intrigued me: The Cure has been found.
Do we just clean up and move on? Do we try to forget or do we try to understand what happened? And when we do look back, who's going to pay, who are we going to blame? Now, after the cure, justice needs to be made. People want justice in order to find closure. Nella Reider, the court appointed psychiatrist, has to fi I picked up "After the Cure" because the premise really intrigued me: Nella Reider, the court appointed psychiatrist, has to find out who's really responsible for the December Plague.
And it's a much tougher task than anticipated because, at a time of survival, right and wrong blur and good and evil are no longer so easily to discern. I loved how the author used the trial to look at what happened retrospectively. I enjoyed this book at the "story" level: But I also enjoyed this book because it made me think.
The author gives us a detached look into human nature and its flaws, and it's not always a pretty picture. Acceptance comes at a high price, but it's only accepting that humans can move on and learn from their mistakes.
After the Cure
And justice will finally be made. There seems to be a shortage of great zombie fiction when measured up against vampire novels or ghost stories, etc. When something comes along that spins that genre on its head, I'm very grateful for it, but those stories are few and far between. After the Cure, I'm happy to say, is one of the few. The very idea that the "infected" can be cured calls so many ethical and moral ideas into question.
How d There seems to be a shortage of great zombie fiction when measured up against vampire novels or ghost stories, etc. How do you live with these people, knowing what they've done? How do they live with themselves? The novel devotes itself to exploring these and more questions fully.

It leaves the reader satisfied, yet even though it is not a small book it leaves the reader wanting plenty more. Beyond the themes of the book, After the Cure also pleases as a tightly plotted thriller. Each character is given their due, they are all fleshed out, and even when the characters can do unspeakable things, they are never one-dimensional. Even the worst of them give you some room for understanding. This is something I cannot give a writer enough credit for when it is done right and here, it is. Overall, After the Cure was an extremely satisfying read and without any exaggeration it was easily the best zombie novel I've read in years.
In a world literally awash in zombie novels, After the Cure stands out as unique in that it focuses less on the undead and more on those who brought on the zombie apocalypse. In simple terms, can those who created the plague that gave rise to the zombies be held legally accountable for their deeds? In order to avoid spoilers, I won't tell you. What I will tell you is that it makes for an interesting read. The characters are likeable and you will find yourself rooting for them.

The ending will give you pause, and isn't that the hallmark of good fiction? There was a bit of explanation about how the Cure was disseminated.. However, I did finish it so I must have liked it to some extent..

Yes Would I read the series? Yes Did I think about the characters or plot after I finished this book? I really enjoyed this book, it was nice to have a "zombie" book that showed more of the after math of the plague. This book showed the physical and emotional scars that were left behind after the cure as well as how the plague began. Good read, looking forward to the next one!

Sep 07, Aletia rated it it was amazing. I hate the way it ended!!! But I'm prepared with book 2! I really enjoyed this new take, a new spin on an old theme. One night, R eats the last of the brain, and experiences the last of Perry's memories. When he begins to witness Perry's death however, R's thoughts interrupt the scene in an attempt to halt it. To his shock, memory pauses, and Perry scolds him, telling him to let Perry have this memory. R complies, and the memory plays through.
After it ends, R falls asleep. When he awakens, Julie is being attacked by several zombies, including M, and R helps her fend them off. M is confused and angry by R's behavior, but R holds his ground. Suddenly, some Boneys arrive. Although they do not attack, one of them shows R some old photos of Dead and Living fighting each other, telling him that they need to maintain the status quo. They leave along with the rest, and R takes Julie back to the airplane. In the morning, Julie convinces R to take her home, and they attempt to leave while the Dead watch them, half-fascinated and half-afraid.
However, the Boneys attack and try to kill Julie, but with M's help, they get away in R's car. On the way to the city, it starts raining, and they are forced to stop in the suburbs. They camp out in one of the houses, and Julie allows R to share a bed with her.
The next morning, Julie calls her father, and sends R out for fuel. When he returns however, Julie is gone. On the road, R runs into M and some other zombies who have been chased out by the Boneys. The zombies have been changing like R, and experiencing things such as dreams and old memories. The soldiers let him in, and R sneaks through the stadium following Julie's scent to her house. R sees Julie on her balcony, and they reunite. R also meets Nora, Julie's best friend. With no other options, the girls let him stay the night, and R has another Perry dream. The next morning, the girls give R a major make-over to make him look human, and take him on a tour of the city.
They take him to the cemetery where they visit the grave of Julie's mother, and Julie tells him how her mother died. While there, R finds Perry's grave, and has a waking vision of Perry. By now, it's become apparent that some form of Perry's soul is living inside R, and has intertwined with R's own. Perry warns him of the changes to come, saying R needs to take control or be swept away.
The vision ends, and the three of them leave the cemetery. After a tense run-in with Julie's father, Grigio, they take him to a pub where Julie spikes their drinks with real alcohol, and R gets drunk. He goes for a walk to clear his head, but runs into a soldier who realizes what he is, forcing R to attack him. As R begins eating him, he regains control and stops, causing the soldier to reanimate as a zombie. R runs back to Julie, and finally tells her that he killed Perry. The Dead soldier is found and killed, but Grigio orders a widespread search to find the second zombie.
He arrives at the house, deduces what R really is, and attacks him despite Julie's protests.
