    1 thought on “The In-Betweener”

    1. This was a good story, well done, and interesting despite being essentially yet another zombie story. The nanotech angle made it more interesting and even a bit more believable, and there is a lot of potential there to be explored.A couple of things kept me from rating this 5 stars. First, it ends on such an incomplete note. I can see based on the story why the author ended it when she did, but it left me feeling a bit put out nonetheless. We spend a lot of time, most of the book actually, with [...]

    2. ---Advanced Copy Read---What an interesting (and very believable) take on the origins of zombies.Apparently I enjoy everything that Ann Christy has to offer. Even end of the world, zombie plup fiction.

    3. Synopsis: Two years ago a new medical nanite advance divided humanity into three types: humans, deaders and the frightening in-betweeners who crave human flesh. Emily's world has grown quiet and ordered, her day bounded by mornings killing deaders at her fence and nights alone in a warehouse office. She's begun to believe life will always be this way, days alone with the dead or fighting in-betweeners for her life. But even that life is better than the alternative. Everything changes when one of [...]

    4. So just to make sure there is no confusion this is about the world gone to hell in a hand-basket not four awkward teenage boys from the south of England (do you get the Inbetweeners in North American my over the pond readers?) anyway I digress I am a huge fan of Ann's writing, she always creates (or improves upon in the case of Silo 49) amazing worlds so I was looking forward to seeing what this was about.Well it zombies but not as I have ever seen before, we are introduced to a world in total d [...]

    5. It’s worth noting that the word zombie doesn't appear in this book. There are a couple of stages of being not-quite-alive that divide the not-quite-living into two groups. That’s one of the differences between this book and your average zombie tale. Another difference is that the disaster that reduced humanity to three groups of creatures was not the result of evil intent. Just the opposite, in fact – the intent was to benefit mankind. Bad judgement and plain old human error caused technol [...]

    6. This book was fantastic and makes me want more! Ann does a great job reeling you into the story with all of the vivid details of the environment and decay, but the ability to empathize with Emily is what really caught my attention. I cannot wait for Book 2 (Forever Between). I need questions answered!

    7. I liked this book because it was a different take on zombies but also had enough of a traditional zombie feel to keep me interested. I like when I find something a bit new in the genre, which is not easy to do.Emily had her life saved by nanite technology which cured her cancer and had health benefits for many people. Emily's nanite was removed from her when it did it's job but those with the technology in their body at the wrong moment are turned into zombies. I liked the idea of the nanites-th [...]

    8. What can I say beside READ IT! It is going to be hard for me to put to words my feelings about this book/seriesI simply adore it. Is it weird to say that about a zombie apocalypse book? Probably, but it's true. This book/series has simply everything you could possibly want from a book, and then some. For the first time in my life I did not write my review immediately after I finished this book, I had to read the next book, then the next one before I could do anything else, so alas, I have devour [...]

    9. What a well written story. I really enjoyed this story although frankly, I was looking for a little more romance. It's very sad, but also moving. No punches pulled or perfect endings here. An excellent zombie book with a strong slightly psychotic heroine.

    10. Well, I found myself reading another zombie novel. You have to understand, I don't consider myself the biggest zombie fan - but I'm beginning to think I'm a zombie fan, just not the classic, b-movie, scary movie kind of zombie.Much like the science fiction genre, this book uses the zombie apocalypse as a starting point to explore human relationships. The main character, a teenager that has come to be alone, is approached by an in-betweener - someone who died for a short time before becoming re-a [...]

    11. I'm a avid reader of Zombie genre, and let me say you, this book is Amazing.The Author gave us a unique explanation of why the world is full deaders, and also introduce us into a "Inbetweener" type of zombie, which have a kind of consciousness of their human life once they are fed. Brilliant, but scary!The main character is a young girl, who is living alone, secure, but lacking of human contact, until one day she finds herself in the middle of a dilemma, when one inbetweener approaches to her wi [...]

    12. I really liked this book. We begin to follow Emily in her life in what we would consider post-apocalypse. What caused this? Wellwe did. Exactly who would have caused this if it does ever really happen. As we try to treat every single illness with the newest modern techniques and medicines, what will happen to us later on. Something goes horribly wrong in the future after people are injected with nanites that cure whatever ails them. Some people have yet to be affected, many are dead. Some are so [...]

    13. This is, at least for me, such a unique treatment of the zombie genre -- the characters, the back-story, the interaction between then and now -- and add to that the excellent writing and you have a novel worth reading and rereading. Christy has a knack for delving into the motivations of her characters. That insight and her clear writing style makes them and their reactions engrossing . Two thumbs up! An excellent read.

    14. This story was heart breaking! The time transitions are done well and the story itself is believable in the world that the author built. If you are looking for a good sci-fi read that has zombies and end of world realities then this is a book for you.

    15. This was an interesting and original take on the zombie apocalypse. Not like anything I've read on the subject before. I will continue the series.

    16. I'm not a huge fan of zombie fiction, but I am a big fan of Ann Christy's books so I gave "The In-Betweener" a try.So glad I did because this is trademark Christy complete with wonderful characters, a strong narrative, and impressive world building along with some interesting ideas to contemplate.The story revolves around Emily, a young woman who lives alone in a warehouse complex behind a chain-link fence that protects her, mostly, from both "Deaders" and "In-Betweeners." Deaders are true zombi [...]

    17. The In-Betweener is book #1 in the Between Life and Death series and it breathes new "life" into a crowded genre!What a fantastic book! The In-Betweener is an apocalyptic zombie story like no other I have read before. It is such a refreshing change for a genre that I adore but admittedly is getting a little tired. I can't wait to read the next book. There are four in total and I think I will snatch them up all at once, for a good zombie reading binge!What it's AboutEmily should be dead but she l [...]

    18. Wow I took a few days before reviewing this book because I really wanted to try and do the review with a clear head. I can confidently say that this is the best zombie book I have read- ever. There are so many things I can say about this so I will break it into a few different sections.First of all, I want to talk about the setting and plot. I thought it was really interesting how Ann decided to focus more on the aftermath of the world coming to a grisly end rather than when it was just happenin [...]

    19. Emily is a nineteen year old who has holed up in a secure location on the edge of the city. Thankfully, she is safe here, though her life hasn't always been that way. Two years after the beginning of the zombie apocalypse, she’s had to shrug off her old life as a teenager and learn survival skills in these turbulent times, being forced to grow up quick.Emily witnessed the beginnings of the zombie outbreak and what caused it. We explore the catalyst of this through flashbacks, Emily’s persona [...]

    20. I received a prerelease copy of The In-Betweeners for review. I received no compensation for my review. I read The In-Betweeners with a great deal of excitement after having read Strikers by the same author. And I wasn’t disappointed. I started reading and flew through the book, devouring each chapter. This was a very well written story that drew me in and, like Strikers, built a near-future world brick by brick. I’ll leave no spoilers but The In-Betweeners' world could be our world but for [...]

    21. Let me start off by saying that I am not a typical reader, I don't normally go in for Zombie books as being too unrealistic. This was a very cool exception. The plot was realistic in that it had a future use of a current technology gone horribly wrong by the mismanagement of humans with some greed thrown in for flavor. This is a plot I can get behind. I am also not the typical YA reader, being closer to the geriatric population than the YA population. The writer, Ann, had some really great obser [...]

    22. Okay, so I'm not going to lie. I was super hesitant to go into this because the whole "zombie" thing is just not my cup of tea. I can't stand The Walking Dead and I have this mentality that all zombies will be portrayed in the same sense. WRONG. I. fucking. loved. this.Instead of the typical virus that gets spread and starts the zombie apocalypse, this apocalypse is started due to nanites. This medically advanced technology was to keep everyone healthy and it has gone awry. Civilization has been [...]

    23. Another free Kindle offering, this one I quite liked! I must admit, I was a bit worried at the first chapter. The writing was a bit stilted. It was a 3rd person/present tense (which I don't know that I've read before) and it just read weird. But with the second chapter, we meet Emily, who is our main character, and it switches to her perspective, which flows better. It does still jump around a lot in time, and one chapter from another perspective, but it works. Each chapter heading is clearly m [...]

    24. Well once again I have split feelings about a book. The In-Betweener is such a fresh, original take on the old zombie myth that I was very interested in finding out more. I immediately found myself drawn to Sam and his little band of hooligans, but was disappointed that we didn't hear more from him for a while. I have to admit I also found myself wishing for more action, this just didn't quite have the pace to keep me reading from start to finish and it's a shortie novel. Most of the story is re [...]

    25. This bookoh mywhat can I say? I was totally hooked from page one! Is it a zombie book? Yes it is. Is it your typical zombie book? Hell no! There are even two types of zombies. The deaders who are exactly that, wasted away, just walking mummies. And then there are the In Betweeners. Newly dead with still maybe some spark of humanity left in them? Ann Christy's writing is so powerful that you actually feel sorry for the In Betweener we do get to meet even though he is still trying to eat the main [...]

    26. My very first zombie book and it was a winner. It's a very modern take on creating zombies by technology run amok. A story of things meant to benefit humanity being misused and eventually malfunctioning and destroying everything.The main characters are Emily, Mom and Sam. Sam is a young teacher trying to survive while feeding and protecting four younger children. Mom is military and has survival skills. Emily has survived brain cancer as a young teen and she's sick of dying. You learn to know th [...]

    27. GREAT Series!! I didn't know "The Books Of Sam" was a part of this when I opened and read it - my Kindles don't show me what are parts of series, just lists the books - and I errantly loaded SO MANY onto various devises the Library listed as "Devise" have a hard time keeping the lists all loaded. Absolutely am loving these. Strong characters and a great story-line. (Still need to get book three and WOW - I will get to find out more of what happened!) By the way, if you haven't tried it you REALL [...]

    28. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I absolutely love this book.The book centers around a young woman and a separate group of survivors.The characters are well developed and the authors talent for world building is amazing.The author uses flashbacks which work well for this story.I like it when an author explains the cause of the downfall of society and the creation of Zombies is clearly explained in this book.I felt immersed in the characters lives an [...]

    29. The In-Betweener is an intriguing tale. A good writer has the ability to bring us into a story and experience the emotions right along with their characters. Ann Christy succeeded. I found myself drawn in and feeling the dread and loss right along with them, some crying might have been involved. When I finished I found myself lying awake wondering what is going to happen next. I have all kinds of theories now. As any good zombie story, The In-Betweener is a dark tale with much loss. I found it t [...]
