3.0 out of 5 stars Friends don't let friends publish unedited. April 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the premise of this story. It's gruesome, and it is something I can see happening. However, the spelling and grammar errors really distracted me and took away from my enjoyment of the story. That's why I'm giving it three stars instead of four.

4.0 out of 5 stars poor editing July 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great premise, unfortunately there were so many spelling errors that it was difficult to concentrate! The story left off sort of abruptly and I wish there had been more of a prologue.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought it was an interesting twist on zombies. It would have been better as a story than interviews, I think. But I thought it was good enough to read to the end. Though I didn't think it ended as well as it could have. Also, it was badly in need of an editor. But I do believe it had a lot of potential.

This would be a great movie, or tv show. It could use some editing but all in all it was a pretty sick short story
