What at first I thought was just a fun zombie story took a turn a quarter of the way through that took the wind out of me. It reminded me that the best "zombie" stories aren't about the undead, they're about the characters who have to deal with them. The last half of the book was so suspenseful I read it all in one sitting. A great thriller that just happens to be set in a world gone to hell.

Can't wait to read what's next from the author.

Normally I do not read books about Zombies, however, this book was recommended as a new author so I decided to give it a try. The book was hard to put down. A great mix of mystery, interpersonal relationships and of course the zombie reference put together very well. The front cover is catching and is actually a location in Switzerland. I also liked how the author took us around Switzerland and Seattle, places he appears to know very well. I would definitely watch for his next book.

I read a lot of books in the post-apocalyptic and zombie genres, and Fugitive Dead did not disappoint. It is up there with my favorites and I would even read it again. The subplot was especially interesting. The writer describes scenes in such a way that you can visualize it easily.

True to his fashion, Sowers leads the reader through the first half of Fugitive Dead at a deliberate pace, setting important context and providing the reader ample time to identify with and invest in the central characters. While this can be somewhat maddening at times, the reader is grateful for it when the action kicks in, and it kicks in breathtakingly.

The bits of French and Swiss-German dialogue interspersed throughout the novel add a brutal air of authenticity to the story and reinforce the reluctant sympathy the reader has already built around the American main characters, as we can feel their confusion and helplessness. While I enjoyed the bits of French that I understood, I did not feel as though I were missing anything critical to the progression of the story by not understanding the Swiss-German. Like the characters, the reader can generally deduce the meaning and implications of the dialogue from the context of the scene in which it takes place.

The ending may not blow the reader's mind, but it is a perfect ending in a novel that contains so many discrete beginnings and endings. There is a Hegelian moment of realization when the characters - and the readers - note the absence of God in the scenario unfolding before them that resonates with even the least-spiritual among us. There is a distinct moment in which we understand that there will be no resolution. As the stories of each character converge, there are moments when we grieve for what we know but they do not.

Not without its flaws, but engages the reader even beyond the end of the novel in a Vonnegutesque "I-need-to-sit-and-think-about-this"-type stupor.
