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.

I think unfiroms will be best because If you wear dresses then ..there comes a time when your out of them...you always brag your parents for new clothes....and you don't really wanna wear old ones...If you had unifroms you wouldn't have to face this problem!

   Personally I prefer free-dress. It gives students the ability to express them selves in their own unique way. Though i do understand why some schools have uniforms. To wear uniforms it shows the equality between the different people, but it as well has its negative points. It doesn't matter if you wear a uniform at school or not, there will still be people there to judge you. If they cant judge you on you're clothing choices than they'll just judge you on other stuff.  To be honest i think that uniforms shouldn't be forced, they shouldn't be dress code, both ways you'll end up with some bad outcome but only one will have some good outcomes. can you guess which? I'll give you hint, its the one with diversity.

a) People who are rude to waiters/cashiers/store employees. b) People who don't use headphones in public. Totally unforgivable.
