    1. Only a slight better than it's predecessor; "Home" literally takes place seconds after "Vacation" ends. Even though the story is pretty much the the same (a family trying to survive a zombie apocalypse, and getting screwed over in the process) somehow, the story managed to catch my attention a little more. There were parts towards the end of the book I actually surprised myself by liking them. Those brief moments however, could not save the book from being terribly written. I don't know why the [...]


    2. Disclaimer: This book was sent for free from the publisher in exchange for a review. I will give my honest opinion.I honestly loved this book. The plot moved quickly, even with moments of grieving by the mother. Those grieving moments didn't last long and they were realistic.I was anxious while reading this, because you are never sure if they will survive. It's been awhile since I was scared while reading horror.The characters were really well done.Highly recommended.



    3. You may also read my review here: mybookishways/2012/11/Home opens right where Vacation left off. Actually it opens up a little bit sooner in order to remind the reader just how much of a tragic disaster the ending of Vacation was. By that I mean our hero in the first book, Jack Murphy, made a terrible sacrifice in order to help his family escape what was supposed to be a family vacation free of restrictions, where his kids could run and play in an environment not overrun by Can Heads (cannibali [...]


    4. Even though I didn't love the first book in this duology, Vacation, I felt compelled to read the sequel. Christie and her two children escape the Paterville Camp and drive back to Staten Island only to discover that the power has gone out in their housing development, leaving them vulnerable to the Can Heads (the still unexplained cannibal zombie-standins for those of you just joining us). They meet a neighbor, an older widow named Helen, who knows of an inn in the mountains that a former Marine [...]


    5. When we left the Murphy family in the end of VACATION, they were in a bit of a pickle. This follow up picks up just before the end of Vacation and follows wife Christie and kids as they escape Paterville and move on to the next challenge.Christie, Kate, and Simon narrowly managed to escape Paterville Camp, but they've made it. While they were away, though, it seems New York experience a massive power outage. The electric fences designed to keep out the Can Heads failed and their world is crumbli [...]


    6. I really enjoyed this book, which is saying something since I've never been much of a horror fan. But this book was so much more than just a horror book -it was about a family pulling together to survive in a world gone wrong; A mother who loses her husband and has to learn how to cope, and how to be a single parent; a teenage daughter, coming of age in a time where the survival of humanity is uncertain; and a young boy who only wants to go home.This book felt very real and that's what made it s [...]


    7. Home, the sequel to Matthew Costello's Vacation, picks up right where the first book left off, throwing the reader into a vicious world of crazed and violent cannibals. While this book has enough back story information for newcomers to read as a standalone novel, reading Vacation first would certainly be beneficial in understanding the characters and the desperate situation they are in.I enjoyed the first half of the book and felt it lived up to Vacation's intense and paranoid journey of post ap [...]


    8. Another decent story that was plagued with issues that should have been caught at edit. Complete sentences are important. I get the chopped, grammatical failures for impact, but all the time, even in narration, doesn't make sense. That being said, the characters are still endearing, although I would have really loved to see the author find a way to bring back Jack. (I honestly thought he would, considering the novel is listed as (Jack Murphy, #2).)


    9. I went back and forth with this book. Let me start by saying I enjoy Mr. Costello's work and consider him an influence. That being said, I simply didn't connect with the main character in this one. She constantly second guessed and had knee jerk reactions to every little thing. I thought the book would have been better had it centered around Kate, the teenage daughter, instead. That and the plot line felt a bit forced, like most of this could have been condensed to a few chapters and added to th [...]


    10. Well, I finished this book in about three days so I believe that's worth something! Overall, I really enjoyed it and I'm so pleased that I won this from the first reads contest. In my opinion the storyline of this book was somewhat reminiscent of the TV show Walking Dead. So, if you're into that sort of thing this would be right up your alley and I would definitely recommend it . I think the best part of this book would have to be the characters, and the emotional roller coaster their on. Costel [...]


    11. I received “Home” by Matthew Costello as a First Reads giveaway winner. This is not a genre that I usually read and I had not read the author’s previous book “Vacation.” I wish I had, because I loved this book. From the moment I turned the first page, I did not want to put it down. If I had 2 minutes to spare, I read. Keep in mind, I started this book less than a week before Christmas and even at this hectic time, my mind was on this book, wondering what would happen next. I will defi [...]


    12. Apparently this book is the second in a series and I have not read the first book ("Vacation"). Perhaps if I'd read that one, I might have been able to rate this one higher. As it is, this book was ok. I felt like I was missing a lot of back story. What are these "Can Head" things? Zombies? Fast zombies? Thinking zombies? How did this all come about? I wanted to know more and my questions were never answered. Also, the author was a big user of sentence fragments. To increase intesity. He would. [...]


    13. I received a free advanced reader's copy of this book through a giveaway. This is a page turner and I read the book in just a few days. If you are a fan of "The Walking Dead" then you will love this book. I had not read the first book "Vacation", but now can't wait to read it. This book is dark, but not overly gruesome and tells the character's stories very well. "Home" is not just another zombie book and underlying everything there is something sinister happening in this post-apocalyptic world [...]


    14. part 2 - the first was VacationChristie is trying to get back home with her two kids and then decide what to do and where to go to avoid the Can Headse meets a neighbor and together they run to a save haven that Helen (the neighbor) knows about run by the Colonel. If you are watching The Walking Dead then you might think that the Colonel and his community might remind you a bit of the Governor. You would not be wrong - But don't underestimate Christie and her kids.


    15. This book just serves to highlight how weak the supporting characters were in the first book. To make matters worse, we're not really given any answers. I also was not a fan of all of the characters over-thinking everything.


    16. The story of both 'Vacation' & Home are quick fun reads, but don't buy them, get them from the library. I read "Home" in just 4 hours, too short for a $25 book.








    17. Rarely does a sequel live up to the original book. Not this time! Home was as gripping as Vacation. I'm definitely a Matthew Costello fan for life.




    18. The story was OK, but the writing style drove me crazy. Choppy sentences were used a lot, I'm guessing for dramatic effect. It was really annoying.


    19. I won this book on givaways. I enjoyed reading this book. Some of the parts were pretty creepy, and reminded me of "The Walking Dead" TVshow.


    20. Idiot ending; humans are a terrible food source in a world of limited resources. If you have the resources to herd humans like cattle, you'd be so much better off just herding cattle.
