Middle of the Road
on December 5, 2012
Think of this as a zombie beach novel - something to lose yourself in for a couple of hours. It's not jaw-droppingly spectaculor, but it also isn't absolute dreck. It's in-between.
The precipitating factor in the making of the zombies was unique - and actually kind of plausible. Even better, it wasn't bio-engineered!
Yes, alot of the characters were cliches: the pretty (yet tough) waitresses at the truck stop, the rich kid who was an arrogant, entitled ass, the good ol' boy who can't get ahead.... They all managed to mesh together nicely. Those that didn't were either killed off early on or injured and unconscious for the rest of the book.
The description of the interior of the store and truck stop were a little confusing - I kept misplacing doors in my mental map, and wondering just how someone got from point A to point B so easy.
This can either be a stand-alone novel or part of a series.
