I remembered this quote the most because it seemed SO dramatic. While I reading through this paragraph of the book, I was just so bored the whole time. I was consistantly thinking: "This is kid is so weird to think about that and is overly dramatic". Only in movies they say things like, "step into a new and dangerous life". It's like he's a criminal or something! Anyways, I tohught this quote was awkward and should be more realistic.
China went from being the world's most dynamic and rapidly growing economic power pre-war, to being one of the nations most severely damaged by the infected. After the War, the United States government fled to Honolulu, Hawaii, and the West Coast of the United States became home to most of the nation's remaining human population. I served as a launching pad for the national reclamation effort. The United States also had a higher percentage of isolated pockets of survivors than any other country.
The infamous term “serial killer” is defined as a person committing two or more murders on separate occasions, often over an extended period of time. The motive behind the killings often relates to the offender’s psychological issues and sadistic connections they feel with their victims. These psychopathic and sadistic tendencies that serial killers often portray, most likely comes from dysfunctional familial backgrounds or complex emotional issues.

When I awoke, I couldn't help but feel that something was wrong. I felt a sharp pain in my head as i got up off the cold,hard floor and I couldn't remember where I was or how I got there. When my eyes finally adjusted to the darkness i saw a light flickering in the distance, urging me to come closer. As I walked down what appeared to be a hallway I started to notice the sloshing of some kind of liquid on the ground. As i bent down to investigate I immediately knew what it was. The red color and metallic smell left me no other explanation.

I ran. My feet moved faster and faster. I didn't know where I was going, what direction I was heading. I didn't dare glance behind me but I knew that it was getting closer, closer. It's hot, sticky breath hit the back of my neck in waves, causing me to shiver with fear and disgust. Frozen tears rolled down my cheeks and my breath exited my mouth in white clouds as I tried to propel myself faster, away from this grotesque monster behind me. The trees of the forest whisked past me, disorienting my every sense of direction and time.
