“Lady, Go Die! is actually a punning version of Lady Godiva-this is a typical Hammer crime novel with a nice twist at the end I (happily) did not see coming. Lots of violence death and sex-excellent. A lot of noir-sh fun.”

“I wish I could say that I loved this book. However, I didn't totally fall in love with any of the characters. I think they were written properly for the tone, and perhaps this just isn't my genre.

“I wish I could say that I loved this book. However, I didn't totally fall in love with any of the characters. I think they were written properly for the tone, and perhaps this just isn't my genre. I wasn't totally on the same page with the way they all spoke. I have seen a few SOA episodes and I don't remember any of them talking in that clipped way of speaking.
The setting just put me off. First we are just told something horrible happened to change the world, but at the same time we aren't actually told what caused this until about 60% through the book I would say. I thought it was an EMP, but it turned out to be an asteroid hitting the earth.
I had partial respect for Tru, but then we had to deal with Casper that was this barbaric figure slamming on his chest asking her to trust him but not SHOWING her he could really be trusted. I can handle the violence, I can even handle the reality of how women were treated in this setting. There was just something that forced me to detach from the whole story. I think it was Casper, although written as that bad boy Alpha, he was too detached from Tru. Yeah, she left, why would begrudge ANYONE that wasn't down with living that lifestyle? I just didn't get it. I would run too.
Stay and be a hole and a punching bag. Leave and have a real life. Yeah the real world has bad stuff in it but they were acting like being away from the MC was worse. I'm sorry, but not in my world, even with a zombie apocalypse I would rather be with my own family than and MC. Maybe it will get better now that Casper is in charge, but I felt he was cold for the sake of trying to be more alpha. I didn't buy is 'caring' for her. I felt like the whole end game was for his own personal gain and revenge.
I got book two on netgalley, I'm hoping we see a little more light at the end of tunnel than a bunch of men just acting with cold disconnect. This wasn't a win for Alpha male for me. Although the writing is strong for me, I felt like it was trying to hard to make a bad boy.”
