Generation Dead - Daniel Waters Okay, I admit: I hated it for the first fifty-or-so pages. But it got better as it went along, and somewhere in the middle I found myself getting hooked. It wasn't as shallow as I expected it to be; in fact, parts of it were pretty sad and even powerful. I felt like it wasn't quite as good as it had the potential to be, though. It would've been REALLY good if the plot and characters had just been developed a LITTLE bit more. For most of the book, I kept asking, "Wait, WHY are these kids coming back from the dead?!" and it took me quite a while to realize that nobody actually knew why. For some reason, I was convinced that the kids were part of some weird science experiment or something. But anyway, the book never explains why this is happening. Plus the end was depressing and seemed a little abrupt. Anybody know if there's supposed to be a sequel? Anyway, it was good. I liked it. I recommend it. :)
