WARNING! Euphoria-Z is NOT for the timid! Within its pages are depictions of adult situations, violence, gore, nudity, and the use of profanity.
Civilization shuts down as the world’s population fills the streets in a deadly orgy. They feel only pleasure and never pain, even as they are injured, maimed, and mutilated. The few who remain unaffected struggle to survive, unaware that things are about to get unbelievably worse.
Cooper is among the few survivors of a conspiracy to depopulate the world. One week ago, college was his biggest concern. Now he is on a perilous journey to find his sister. But zombies aren't the only threat he faces. In this nightmarish reality, the living can be far more dangerous.
Euphoria-Z is definitely NOT for the weak stomach. The gore can be pretty descriptive at times, but it's enough for the kind of book it is. The character development was fantastic, I really was pulling for Cooper the whole time, then all of a sudden, we meet new people and you just hope beyond hope that they all find each other and oh man. It was so well developed. I would read this at work and would go home, thinking about how badly I wanted to keep reading it! It was very well written, not too many repetitions about the gore and such. Sometimes people will use the same phrases over and over and it's noticeable, but that wasn't the case with Euphoria-Z at all. The pace was well done also. I was hoping it wouldn't be too fast (like some of the novels I have read recently, where the action just happens so quickly, then the book is over) because I really wanted to see the characters and plot develop. And I appreciate that it was more of the survival of the characters rather than just watching the apocalypse just occur. It read similarly to World War Z, in that it was more of the aftermath of the epidemic, than while it was occurring. I think the only "fault" I could find was that sometimes the switch between character plots would happen so quickly, that I would have to go back and remember what had just happened before, but it wasn't too hard to jump back in.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book and I hope that I am able to review the next in the series!!!!
