Book Review: Flesh and Bone by Jonathan Maberry

Jan 05, 2013

On their journey through the Rot and Ruin, Benny and his friends encounter villains worse than zombies. Kidzworld has the book review of Flesh and Bone by Jonathan Maberry.

In Tom's Absence

In this third installment of the Rot and Ruin series, Benny, Nix, Lilah and Chong must carry on their journey without Benny's brother - a fierce but kind warrior and zombie hunter - Tom. But Tom's death has turned the group against each other. Nix has reverted inside herself, no longer the loving girlfriend that Benny once knew. And Benny is hearing voices - Tom's voice to be exact.

Evil Remains

The group may have defeated Charlie Pink Eye, Preacher Jack and all of their violent cohorts at Gameland, but that does not mean they're in the clear. Evil still lurks in the Rot and Ruin, and we're not talking about the zombies.

The Reapers

When the group saves a young girl from being eaten by the zoms, Lilah goes in search of her missing family. In her travels she encounters a group of people called Reapers, who have established a new faith in the darkness. They believe that it's God's will to turn the Earth over to the zoms, thereby "opening red mouths in the flesh of every man, woman and child." In order to escape death at the hands of these religious nutbars, the friends must be the first to locate Sanctuary, a safe community that is actively seeking a cure for the zombie virus. But one of the four won't make it there in one piece.

The Bottom Line

Flesh and Bone is yet another amazing story of zombies, survival and the power of friendship. Jonathan Maberry's tales never seem to disappoint. Fans of zombie books, post-apocalyptic books, sci-fi, fantasy and horror will all appreciate this series. But we suggest you start with the first two books: Rot and Ruin and Dust and Decay.

He won't show mercy anymore because he already did before, enough to send his son to sacrifice his life for us. Yeah and that's all good and gravy. But what did Jesus say? Jesus said to forgive those who wrong you/ Jesus said that we should turn the other cheek. When it comes to The Death Penalty in The Bible, Jesus ended the capitol punishment in the Mosaic Laws.

If you get offended by a "Yo Mama" joke, you deserved it. Only way you could run into it is by you choosing to look at them or somebody jokingly saying it. The original purpose of "Yo Mama" jokes is to get offended. They were used to instigate fights so that person could "swing first." You are intentionally trying to aggravate someone when you say it.  If someone is saying it jokingly to you, then you must know that person. They know what your mother is like in real life and they know how you are. They know you won't get offended by it. Now, if they don't know you personally like that, then they are inconsiderate. That person should know before hand what the status of your mother is before even conceiving the idea of saying it.  And I mean seriously, they are pretty childish. You should know not to entertain the situation and just leave. Personally for me, these jokes never struck me. Ever. I know what my mother looks like, how she is. The person that's saying it doesn't. So how can anything they say about her be true?
