Day 173: The Fall
This kept a really good dark tone for most of the book. Except for the blog entries by Fet. Really? Blogging? During the vampocalypse?
Dear readers, I promise you one thing: if things start going down where my family and I will potentially be attacked by vampires, I will not be blogging about it. I will be hiding my ass away from the world. Someone else can be the internet hero. I think blogging is important; I think it is an excellent way to provide information to people who want it and an even better outlet for people to share their thoughts (even if it's only with 30-something readers). I do not think it will matter so much during a time of crisis in which everything is going to hell.
I also found the concept a bit ridiculous. The population of New York was decimated or turned vampire, brown outs were occurring constantly, cell phone towers were down, and yet somehow Fet had regular enough internet access to update his blog. Even updating sporadically, this seems a bit far to ask us to suspend our disbelief. And really, who thinks it would be a good idea to blog their way through the end times?
It probably won't be an issue. Not because they won't come eventually, but because I doubt anyone will have time or the stability to do it. But if you had the chance...would you? Would you blog the apocalypse?
