Shaun

(from Newsflesh Trilogy by Mira Grant)

I don’t read books about zombies, but with characters like Shaun and Georgia I would read anything and I bet I’d still love it no matter what. Seriously, I fell in love with Shaun from the first chapter in the first book and I was so happy to have him all for myself in Deadline.

Such a wonderful (and a bit crazy) character!

“Our story opens where countless stories have ended
in the last 26 years: with an idiot, in this case my
brother Shaun, deciding it would be a good idea to go out
and poke a zombie with a stick to see what happens.”

What do we know about him?

Pros:

#1: He has a very strange hobby, but at least he is good at it:

“Both of us are smart enough to know where our strength lie. His involve poking dead things with sticks and living to blog about it.”
#2: He is funny, sarcastic and sweet:
“Here’s how it used to work: George told you the unvarnished facts, no matter how nasty they were or how lousy they made you feel and I came in to dance like a monkey and make you feel better about the shitty world we’re living in.”
#3: He is sincere:
“You look like hell.
You can tell that with the light off?”
#4: He is such a good storyteller:
“I just find it interesting that kids apparently used to cry when Bambi’s mother died. George and I both held our breaths, and then cheered when she didn’t reanimate and try to eat her son.”
#5: His emotions are raw, and he makes you care so much for him that it hurts:
“Everything was perfect. Those are the worst dreams of all, because in the end, I can’t stay asleep forever.”
#6: He is too cute for words. You don’t believe me? Hear this:
“Rick stared at him. ‘Your brother is an alien.’
‘Yeah, but he’s a cute one’.[Georgia] ”
#7 Is there anything else to say?
“Everything else is just details. And those don’t really matter to me anymore.”

Cons:

#1: He’s a bit crazy, even if his craziness is quite adorable:

“ I feel the closest to crazy when I’m disagreeing with the voice in my head” 
#2: He has a bit of a temper..a whole bit:
“He stopped after I finally lost my temper and introduced my fist to his face, resulting in skinned knuckles on my part and a broken nose on his.”
So, why Drew Roy?

  • Did you see the picture with the gun?
  • Did you see the picture with the bike?
  • Isn’t he cute?

Well, that’s why!
