5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, but short. March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An excellent, realistic, take on post zombie apocalypse USA. The characters are solid, well thought out, and interact well with one another. Any veterans or service members will appreciate the accurate use of military "jargon" and discussions about tactics. I feel like this book could have continued on longer, or could transition well into a series of shorter stories... but long story short, its a good read.

2.0 out of 5 stars What Happen? July 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first half of the book was great.

The second half, something went wrong. The first parts of all the sentences are gone. It's not my Kindle, since I can read it all on my cell phone and I can read other downloaded books just fine.

I would be happy to re-evaluate my rating if I could get this problem resolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars good read April 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
is this the best ever written book in the world, no. is it entertaining, yes. i enjoyed reading this story as the author posted it chapter by slow chapter to his facebook page. when it was offered as a collective book i jumped at the chance to purchase and relive the story. thing i like best about it is the characters have seen zombie movies and read the zombie books, unlike most other zombie stories where everyone is like "holy crap its a zombie ahhh run". this book works and provides a different perspective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down April 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was entertaining to the the end!! It's not as long as I would like, and I'm hoping for a second book. The way it was written from a first-person point of view made the story draw you in. I'm going to recommend this to a few people I know would enjoy it. My husband is going to start reading this tonight!!

It's rare when I spend all night reading a book from start to finish. This a perfect example of a well written zombie thriller, and the price makes it too good to pass up. Also, this is one of the very few books that I've read in which you will not be able to tell the plot ahead of time - the mark of a good author.

Check it out. It's cheaper then a pack of smokes these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie apoc. from the perspective of a military man. March 23, 2013
By j cur
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this in it's first phase of Facebook on EZKGTB. This is an imaginative, well thought out twist to the zombie apocalypse. The characters are deep and well developed. The authors come from an extensive military background and have much experience writing. Check out PPR (Power Point Ranger) if you want a bit more from them. This novel is well worth picking up and reading over and over. I have. Thanks for finally putting this out so we can finally give you money!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome March 24, 2013
By Braden
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have followed ezkgtb on Facebook since the beginning! The way Mr. Agostine interacted with the readers asking for their thoughts on chapters, characters, art work, etc. really caught my attention and made purchasing this e-book easy well that and the price! That said.. It's a wonderful book and recommend it to anyone looking for a good read!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed March 29, 2013
By Woodard
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Very detailed and extremely familiar to those of us in the Army with a few deployments. Was a lighter and yet very real angle on the Zombie craze. The references to current pop culture and "Zombie Myths" inaccuracies is awesome. Hope he writes another volumes SOON!

More About the Author

I am a 22 year veteran of both the US Army and the NY Army National Guard, and served in Iraq in 2005. I live and work in Upstate New York.

My books are mostly Military Science Fiction, with some comedy thrown in. it all started when I was watching "The Walking Dead" with a friend and she grew irritated at my constant "That's not right!" or "That's impossible!" She challenged me to write something better, and six books later, here I am.

I highly encourage my fans to interact with me over at my Facebook group, Irregular Scout Team One!
