I just finished this a few days ago and really enjoyed it. A good solid story. I'd give it an 8 out of 10.

I'm not quite done with Breeding Ground yet, but with only 80 pages to go, it hasn't done it for me in the same way it seems to have most other readers. For starters, the widows haven't proven much of a threat to our host of characters. I'm sure that'll change as the book reaches its climax, but to this point all of the survivors have travelled the countryside without a single casualty.

Plus I've had trouble with the way Pinborough writes from a man's perspective. It's probably the same for a female reading a male author's attempts at nailing a female first-person protagonist, but some of her wordings have jarred me right out of the book, thinking: "There's no way a 29 year old guy would think like that - no matter how in touch with his feminine side he might be".

Anyway, will finish it up over the next couple of days and see if the end redeems the overall work.
