Good storyline but the characters are frustrating!
Reviewed in the United States on August 21, 2021
I just completed book 4 and my rating of 3 stars is for the overall series so far. The storyline is really good and that is what's kept me reading to this point. The characters however are a different story. I understand that the world has pretty much ended and things are crazy and scary but the 2 main characters Thomas and Elizabeth are incredibly stupid! Just when I think one of them might be getting their act together a little bit they go and do something even more stupid than before. It's never ending! Stupidity is a big pet peeve for me so there have been times when I almost gave up on this series because it just becomes too frustrating. I've also noticed a few inconsistencies in the story which is a little annoying. They're small but they're there. I've read other books from this author and those books were filled with numerous typos or just using the wrong word. Lots of errors. It was very frustrating! I have to say this series has a whole lot less of that kind of thing and I totally appreciate that. I'm going to move on to book 5 because the storyline is definitely keeping me interested but I'm not sure how much longer I can take the stupidity so we'll see how much further I get.
