Welcome to Deadland

I did not find anything new or even very interesting in Deadland. The three main characters, Asher, Wendy and Rico, never really connected with me. The chapters are titled after characters with the notes of "- before" or "- after" indicating where in the time line that section falls. The fluidity in time lines in a novel can be done if executed well. Deadland used past tense verbs for before and present tense verbs for after. I found it jarring going from each section to the next. Reading a book is like dreaming. A noise can knock you out of your dream and wake you up. Books can have issues where you are kicked out of your imagination and return to the real world. The truly great books keep you trapped within them. Unfortunately Deadland did not.
I received a copy of Deadland from NetGalley in return for a honest review.
