    One thought on “After the Cure”

    1. Imagine if the zombies on the Walking Dead were suddenly cured and then society had to somehow go on. The survivors like Rick (who are the Immune in this book) will know that they killed a bunch of people who could have been cured if given time. The cured "zombies" will know that they killed and ate people - even their loved ones. Talk about an awkward world!Yes, this awkward.This is the setting for the book. The zombies were actually people infected with an infection that gave them a cannibalis [...]

    2. I've got to stop reading zombie books.Imagine being a zombie and then being cured. Still remembering all those people you ate. Like a night on tequila . Shudder !!

    3. The idea of seeing the zombie plague cured, and the rabid nom-ing creatures it created returned to humanity, intact with all the memories of what they had done when the infection took over, was a new one for me. The Cured, as they are renamed, also retain the visible and invisible scars of all they did when control was lost. They are often riddled with physical scars, missing limbs, and/or have a distinct appearance of starvation, that even up to 8 years after the plague took them, gives them a [...]

    4. This has potential. The writing and the story line were ok But it felt. Like a low budget movie. Like, yeah ok, somehow you wrangled a big name actor but there's still no money so the lighting is weird and everyone can tell that car's on a set and not actually moving. The chapter titles OK, they don't really matter but they were still pretty bargain bin. And the dialogue had a strange aversion to contractions. Always "they are" or "we are" instead of they're or we're. It just sounds stilted and [...]

    5. So, if a cure was found for Zombies, what would happen after? I think that is a really good premise for a book. Unfortunately in After the Cure, the author decided to concentrate more on the romance side of the story. Now I know that this book is part of a series, so maybe the actual after the cure idea is explored in more detail in the later books. But I do think that by not exploring it more in the first book of the series, the author missed a trick.An ok book, 6 out of 10. 3 stars.

    6. The story is good, but the characters are odd. They like taking lunch breaks and going home to take showers every time they uncover really urgent, important information about a deadly virus; "Let's think about this again on Monday. Are you hungry?", they say. They are in hostile territory lurking with dangerous and violent creatures, "I'm going to undress and step into my sleeping bag *blush*, don't peek ok?" IF you can get past all that, it's a good story! I am now on Book 2.

    7. Oh wow, what a ride. I'm normally not a huge fan of "zombie fiction"- or horror, or thrillers, or really anything that's creepy or spooky- but this is probably one of the most interesting and gripping books that I've read in a long time. I couldn't put it down! Unlike your typical zombie story, this book focuses on the social, psychological, and legal aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, when what remains of society is separated into the Cured (people who were zombies but have been cured) and the [...]

    8. This was a free Kindle offering, and the premise sounded very interesting. There IS a cure for the "zombies" as you can imagine, physically, many are in horrible shape, even if they can return to humanity. But additionally, they REMEMBER what they did (like eating their family). Tough stuff to live with.It was a very interesting approach to other zombie reads. I did like it, but it kind of dragged on and on. The writing was fine, but it didn't have the flow that some better books do. It was a b [...]

    9. So here's the thing. I love zombies way more than any normal person should. I get excited any time I find a new zombie book to read or a zombie show to watch. With that being said, this is a plot I haven't seen before. It doesn't focus on the zombies or the zombie apocalypse, but more so on the fact that the zombies could be cured and what happens after. The plot was interesting enough, but the romance in this killed it for me. It just seemed really forced, and distracted me from everything else [...]

    10. Well what can i say about After the Cure? It was a free recommendation on book bub and i thought i'd give it ago. It opens at the end of a pandemic. I want to say zombies but its the wrong word, the illness that swept the world doesnt fit the regular zombie criteria. The effected are more enraged cannibals then reanimated dead. Luckily (or unluckily depending on view point) a cure has been found and administered to the infected! Horah! Nella (cant quiet get over the fact that her name makes me w [...]

    11. Okay, so here's the deal. I actually REALLY enjoyed this book. "But, Lucas, you gave it TWO stars?" I know. That's because of the "romance" and Frank. Let's talk about this.The book is really interesting. The trial, the crazy doctors, the Plague, the Cure. It's all pretty cool. I'd have given this four stars. FOUR.But then we have Frank. Mr. "Not Beautiful". The guy who keeps pushing our MC to be more social, cause why does she not know her neighbours? It's not like she went through a sorta-zomb [...]

    12. I loved the concept of this book: zombie-like people who are cured and can remember everything they did, and a world trying to recover with both the Cured and the Immunes. But it's like this writer took a great idea and didn't really do anything with it. I liked the characters well enough, but near the end, it's like the writer just had to hurry up and wrap it up with a happy ending, which was cheesy and over the top. Trying to tack on a twist ending was predictable and just made me roll my eyes [...]

    13. Really loved the premise of the book. Definitely seemed like a new way to look at zombies/outbreaks - a cure? And those cured remember everything they did while zombified? Book seemed a little tedious, and the romance talk about/between the two main characters felt repetitive at times.I did enjoy the twist at the end!There are more books in the series, but I'm not sure I'll read them. Also, it seemed as though the book didn't have a decent editor

    14. I've never read a book that examines how society would go about rebuilding itself post-zombie-apocalypse. It's a fantastic concept, and Gould does a fairly good job fleshing out some of the details. The main problem I had with the story was the seemingly unnecessary romantic element—it seemed incredibly forced, and the neatly tied-up fairy tale ending (at least in the arc of the two characters in question) was a bit annoying.

    15. Fantastic!This is an amazing series with a great plot line that kept me at the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read the next one!

    16. In all the zombie fiction I've read over the years, I can safely say I've never read this spin on it (if you know of others, please comment). In this first installment, a cure has been found and the story is told through the eyes of the Immune and the Cured. What would it be like to wake up from this nightmare one day and totally remember everything you did as a monster and who you dined on? Think there would be psychological issues? How about physical appearance? While dealing with all that, ma [...]

    17. This is a book that will always stay with me to some degree. The concept is both brilliant yet chilling. I read a lot of post apocalyptic novels. For the past couple years now it has been my go to genre of choice, largely I suspect that it has a lot to do with my life as I knew it and enjoyed was ripped away from me as a result of a texting driver, leaving me in a totally new world that I had/have almost no control in and I went from living to being willing to do almost anything just to survive. [...]

    18. Make no mistake about it, this book is very much a ROMANCE. Get rid of the romance subplot and this novel becomes a short story. I don't mean that as a point of criticism either, just stating it as reality. If you go into "After the Cure" expecting something closer to horror or post-apocalyptic thriller then you will be disappointed but if you like romances AND zombies then you just may love it. I fall somewhere in the middle. The premise for this book is awesome. I've read hundreds of zombie bo [...]

    19. I picked up "After the Cure" because the premise really intrigued me: contrary to most "zombie" books out there, this one starts from the end. The Cure has been found. What now? Do we just clean up and move on? Do we try to forget or do we try to understand what happened? And when we do look back, who's going to pay, who are we going to blame? Now, after the cure, justice needs to be made. People want justice in order to find closure. Dr. Nella Reider, the court appointed psychiatrist, has to fi [...]

    20. There seems to be a shortage of great zombie fiction when measured up against vampire novels or ghost stories, etc. and the main reason I can find for that is that so much of what's out there is exactly the same. When something comes along that spins that genre on its head, I'm very grateful for it, but those stories are few and far between.After the Cure, I'm happy to say, is one of the few.The very idea that the "infected" can be cured calls so many ethical and moral ideas into question. How d [...]

    21. In a world literally awash in zombie novels, After the Cure stands out as unique in that it focuses less on the undead and more on those who brought on the zombie apocalypse. In simple terms, can those who created the plague that gave rise to the zombies be held legally accountable for their deeds? In order to avoid spoilers, I won't tell you. What I will tell you is that it makes for an interesting read. The characters are likeable and you will find yourself rooting for them. The ending will gi [...]

    22. well I expected a story that describes the happenings after a cure for some world wide dreaded disease but this book is more concerned with how the disease started and how the cure came about. There was a bit of explanation about how the Cure was disseminated but not much else about how civilisation is getting back on it's feet (which is what I expected). However, I did finish it so I must have liked it to some extent It was well written and I did like to two main characters :)

    23. Life Goes On? maybe?Would I recommend to a friend? YesSeries? YesWould I read the series? YesDid I think about the characters or plot after I finished this book? YesFavorite Quote: You can go to your grave eighty years from now knowing that a day didn’t pass since we met that I did not want you.”"ARC: No9/2015

    24. I really enjoyed this book, it was nice to have a "zombie" book that showed more of the after math of the plague. This book showed the physical and emotional scars that were left behind after the cure as well as how the plague began. Good read, looking forward to the next one!

    25. Ohmigod!I hate the way it ended!!! But I'm prepared with book 2!I really enjoyed this new take, a new spin on an old theme. And I am really excited to see where it goes!

    26. Is it better to kill your family but you're not in control or kill strangers but have it be your choice?This is just one of the many interesting questions this book raises. The second I read the blurb, I was hooked on the possibility of where this idea could lead. The premise behind the book is actually really simple-we've cured the zombie apocalypse. It's such an obvious idea and yet I have never read or seen anything which considers it. I was worried this would be one of those books with such [...]

    27. This is an interesting take on the whole zombie genre. First, the zombies are not walking dead or anything like that. They are alive, they are sick, they are aware of what they are doing, and they can be cured, but would you really want to be cured and have to live with that guilt? Or would you rather just be killed? That is a hard question to answer, but suicide rates are high among the cured population for a reason. Same holds true for the immune population. Imagine yourself on either side.On [...]

    28. As far as zombie apocalypse books go, this one was pretty darn good. The world came to a shattering near end when a disease ripped through humanity. But it wasn't merciful enough to kill those infected; instead the Infected become flesh eating cannabalistic monsters with no thought or reason other than the need to eat, even if it means eating themselves.But miracles happen and a cute was found,. Those who were Immune are steadily breaking forth into Infected areas and Curing them. But those cure [...]
