    1. Sorry, hate to be scathing on another indie writer, but this was hard to read and hard to finish. I unleash a bit more here: adamjsmithauthor. - but to summarise, this was a rushed book, with rushed, unimaginative writing and convoluted action and decision-making on the protagonist's behalf; a whiny, self-indulgent protagonist not helped by the narrative decision to tell us everything going through his head every second of the day (or night - hello dreams)! I haven't been a 17-year-old for a whi [...]

    2. I received this book in return for an honest review. A fast paced, roller coaster with one hell of a twist. Something you can really sink your teeth into. Okay. *pew-explosion noise* .at was the sound of my mind being blown. This book was freaking off the wall, loss for words, good. I mean there are no words to justify how good this was.I admit, it took a while to get into which is one reason it took so long to read it. (Other reason being my laptop died.d by died, I mean it fried. There is no c [...]

    3. A large percent of the population loves zombies, and I easily fall into that percentage. Despite my enjoyment of all things zombies, I can be rather picky when it comes to my zombie reads. In all honesty, I find zombie books to be hit or miss. I either really enjoy them or I find them lacking. Whilst Humanity’s Hope was an interesting read, it wasn’t quite what I had hoped it would be.Humanity’s Hope is one of those zombie stories that focuses more on society than it does upon the actual z [...]

    4. Thank you to the author’s publicist for providing me with an ARC copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.When I read the synopsis I was instantly intrigued by it. It didn’t sounded like anything I have read before, so I was more that happy to pick it up. Sadly the book didn’t exactly live up to my expectations. While the story definitely took some unexpected turns, there were also a few very predictable things in the plot.I really enjoyed the writing style. It was easy to get int [...]

    5. This book was given to me by the author's and I chose to leave a review, that being said on to the review.Caleb has survived the zombie uprising but his family and friends didn't. Now he's just trying to survive, he thinks he's "safe" in the city. Now he works as a computer programmer for Zombietech, the company trying to find a cure for the zombies. He has made a friend ,Samuel, who works with him and since he's only 17 he lives with his guardian Dr Bentley who also works for Zombietech. When C [...]

    6. Humanity's Hope by Pembroke Sinclair is a story that takes place once the world has begun to level out after the zombie uprising.Zombie novels can be tricky. In my reading experience, I have seen a number of authors handle it really well, while others totally tanked In this case, I think the author put a fun twist on the zombie! I absolutely loved the first half of the book, but unfortunately, I didn't really care for the second half.Full disclosure: I was given a free copy of this book in excha [...]

    7. Humanity’s Hope by Pembroke Sinclair is a Young Adult dystopian book set in a world that has survived a zombie apocalypse and now is trying to rebuild society and find a cure to return back the zombies to humans.The protagonist is Caleb, a 17-year-old boy who works for Zomtech, the biggest research company established after humans had been able to limit the spread of the zombies. He’s trying to find a way to cure the zombie disease, and his days pass in this research facility.But we all know [...]

    8. Thoughts: I have to admit it took me a little bit to get into this story. It started off fantastic about zombies and 3 kids running from them (Very Walking Dead or The Girl with All The Gifts) and the action that happens. Then it abruptly switches to Caleb in a computer room with no real ending or what happened kind of moment. From there we are left to piece together how society would function after a zombie plague and what that would look like. And with rebuilding of society you always have a d [...]

    9. The conspiracy theory behind this zombie story is very interesting. There are two different types of zombies. The BZs and the RBZs which makes for a good concept. Caleb is a seventeen year old orphan who is a computer whiz working for Zemtech, a research organisation. There has been a zombie uprising which has left him seriously traumatised. After everything that he has been through, he no longer allows anyone to get close to him. He is a loner! He is fairly settled in his routine until he recei [...]

    10. I received this book in return for an honest review. Thank you for Pembroke Sinclair's Publicist for this opportunity. My First Thoughts: This could be an interesting read. The synopsis defiantly got my attention. I had been stung by zombie novels before and I was hoping that it wouldn't happen again.Once Read: The writing style is very interesting and I find the author to be very imaginative. It is set after the zombie apocalypse has been and gone, humanity are trying to get back to normal. Wel [...]

    11. Things I LovedCaleb was a wonderful character! I definitely felt the pain he carried with him. His past was evident in the ways that he carried himself and considered his surroundings. I don't believe that this story would have been nearly as scary in some parts if Sinclair had chosen a less intelligent MC. Instead, we are given the wonderfully developed Caleb. The zombies were very vividly described! Usually, gross descriptions in books are something I can overlook as I am not actually faced wi [...]

    12. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. There are some slight spoilers in this review.I like that it starts off with a sort of homage to Night of the Living Dead (The main character, Caleb, his sister and their friend are running across a field to a farm house). It was a good start. Then all of a sudden Caleb is working at a place called Zomtech as a computer technician/programmer and we're supposed to figure out that the previous scene was [...]

    13. I enjoy zombies in games and in movies, but very seldom in books. Far too many people fail to understand what makes a good zombie story—good zombie stories are about humanity… people. A lot of writers either rip off Walking Dead, making a superb story just a cheap copy, or they write about zombies, making a story just as lifeless and soulless as the subject matter. Humanity’s Hope, by Pembroke Sinclair suffered neither of those trappings.Not only did the protagonist, a 17 year old boy name [...]

    14. I received an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. Humanity's Hope is an intriguing, short YA novel that explores what it's like to live in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse. The protagonist, Caleb struggles with anxiety, depression, and PTSD due to his difficult past, even though he has since earned a high-paying job with Zomtech, a company researching the cause of the zombie outbreak. When Caleb learns that he is immune to the zombie ailment, he's thrown into danger as power [...]

    15. When I started reading Humanity's Hope, because it was a zombie story and it was the first zombie story that I have read due to the fact that zombies aren't my thing, I thought I was going to have difficulty with it. But after five attempts (my issue, not the author's ) at starting the story, I finally was able to read it and completely enjoy and appreciate that it wasn't a typical zombie story with tons of blood and gratuitous gore. In fact, there was very little gore. This story is about a 17y [...]

    16. I’m not sure if things one genuinely enjoys should be called guilty pleasures, but zombie novels would definitely that category for me. I'm always up for a good zombie story. Well, I was offered the chance to read Humanity's Hope by Pembroke Sinclair, which is, you guessed it, a zombie novel. Let's take a look, shall we?Caleb is a teenager just trying to survive in post zombie infested world. It’s safe in the city, or safer than most other places. He has a job, a place to live, and with the [...]

    17. Original review can be found on my blog at thislink.I would like to give a huge thank you to the author, Pembroke Sinclair, for giving me the chance to read Humanity’s Hope in exchange for an honest review. 🙂Humanity’s Hope is a pretty short novel since it consists of only 252 pages. I’ve never read a zombie apocalypse novel before. Thus, this is the first zombie apocalypse novel I’ve ever read. Although I wanted to love Humanity’s Hope because of its eye-catching synopsis, I’m un [...]

    18. My first impressionrious, VERY curious. I'm not a zombie fan, by any means, HOWEVER the approach in this one is rather interesting. It takes us to a world not so far removed from our own that we wouldn't recognize it, and places us smack dab in the middle of life after a zombie apocalypse that was started by mankind.That's right. What started as something with good intentions quickly got away from those "in control" and blossomed into the monster that it is today. Go figure. Flash forward a bit [...]

    19. This is not your traditional YA zombie book. It's more of a character study. The book is slow and the author focused on the character's inner toil; his emotional struggle and guilt. It was an easy read with enough intrigue to keep me reading. The last few chapters sped up significantly and I think it set itself up nicely for a follow up.

    20. I wish half-stars were an option here, because I want to give this book 3.5 stars, but I really don't want to round up to 4. I liked the premise of the book, and the main character was pretty decent. The story was quickly-paced enough to keep me reading til the end. My problem with it is that it falls flat in a few places - some events/actions don't really make enough sense, and other characters aren't completely fleshed out. The author never specified what the main character looked like, so I s [...]

    21. SPOILERS ABOUND! Caleb is so cute! I want to put him and his dark side into my pocket and carry him around wherever I go! Zombie Apocalypse? No prob. How to interact with other humans, or chicks? Hey, hey, cut the kid some slack he is trying to save the world after all!Caleb is a reasonably typical, anti-social, paranoid, seventeen year old computer geek. Yes he is immune to the zombie virus, but honestly that is probably the least interesting thing about him! My personal favorite trait is the " [...]

    22. There are A LOT of zombie novels out there (I even wrote one myself once). If you're a fan of the undead, you've probably picked up at least a few zombie books that turned out to be very disappointing.Humanity's Hope is not one of those books.This young adult zombie thriller is intense in exactly the right ways, keeps you on the edge of your seat all the way through, and is just what you're looking for in a zombie book.Caleb, the protagonist, is an interesting, multi-layered character. He's comp [...]
