Dust - Joan Frances Turner The ideas described have originality and are away from the norm of traditional zombies. In the first part of the novel is difficult to determine the participants in a conversation or at what time the events were happening. I was interested in Turner’s way of describing battles and events using peculiar metaphors and similes. That demonstrates creativity. Another interesting aspect is that the author created a slang ( hoo for humans) for the story.

Jessie seemed childish and impulsive. The story leads to her development and maturity, which was necessary to make her the centerpiece of the chain of events. The interesting thing about it is that Jessie evolves while others regress. I have interest in seeing what role Jessie plays in the future of this series.
