First off the book: The Returned by Jason Motts
You can read my full review here
I liked it. It wasn't great it was okay... I did enjoy reading it though and I thought it posed some great questions. I also thought it was meant to make people think of how they treat groups of people now. It did a great job showing how "civilization" would react and how fear can lead people to do some crazy things. Some things they would and do regret and something that are just frighteningly accurate.
The TV show based off of this review/book is Resurrection on ABC
The doctor on the show isn't in the book at all. Fred is not the sheriff nor did he have a daughter in the book. And while the show is still on going, I think it got renewed) I can't say that I am actually enjoying the show at all. In fact I would be bold enough to say that I preferred the book and the show I kind of gave up on and walked away from by the finale.
Have you seen the first season of the show? What did you think? There is some controversy surrounding the show and the book... I am not certain what it is other then the simple question the book and the show both ask... what would you do if your loved one returned?
