Good promise, a page turner, but I didn't care about the characters and completely didn't get the motivations. It felt a little forced and by the end I just had to groan. It was frightening to me as it was set in my city of Seattle, so that was very interesting to me. If you have time and like a zombie yarn, try it. Otherwise, maybe keep looking.

I enjoyed this story although the plot line of going back and getting revenge seemed a little far fetched. The main character is interesting in the fact that he is very ordinary. In fact he even seemed overly reactive to every occurrence. There were many instances where I was thinking what the hell are you doing? The story was still intriguing though not the best apocalyptic book I've read. There were a lot of confusing actions by many characters. Still an enjoyable read however

I am a huge fan of David Wellington. I fell in love with his Monster Island, Nation, and Planet books. Then...he decided to explore other elements. I am not against a horror writer in the zombie genre toying with other ideas, but I also think "you dance with the girl what brung ya" and this story just felt like it was thrown together to shut up his zombie fans. His heart just didn't seem to be in this. His story telling was mediocre and he gave us characters that were flat, unlikable, and uninspiring.

I am not against his 13 Bullets story or anything else, but when he does throw his zombie fans a bone, I would hope that he put more into it. I will wait eagerly for the next one, and I will get it with the hope that the Wellington I am a huge fan of will return.

Well, at least it's only .99 cents now. That's still a ripoff. I think I paid $4 for it when it first release, so for a buck it might be worth it to you. But first let me dissaude you.... There are multiple problems I have with this novel. Some quite profound. I'll number them, like a list.

1. THE PLOT OF THE STORY - This literally has to be the silliest and stupidest idea for a story I've ever heard. After a plague strikes(actually it hits all of America but Seattle is ground zero) a man's hometown of Seattle, his wife and son are killed by a zombie(this was a person he knew in life) and this man(our main protagonist) decides to seek revenge against this zombie. Yep. That's the whole point of the story; him to travel across country(Chicago to San Fran by plane and on foot from there to Seattle) to kill one zombie out of vengeance! That is absurd. Why bother? The zombie is a mindless being. I could maybe understand if you just happened to randomly encounter it along the way and say what the crap, let's kill just for the sake of killing it. But going out of your way, risking life and limb, all for something so retarded as vengeance against a mindless shambling zombie. I could see this happening if the main character was insane/mad, but in this novel he wasn't. And btw, the synopsis for the book says nothing about seeking vengeance against a 'cough' zombie or I would have skipped this badboy and save $4 smackers.

2. TYPOS - It seemed liked the first half was worse than the second half, but that could be a result of me doing so serious skimming of pages in the second half. I mean really people why release a professional publication if you're not going to spellcheck. It gets tiresome and ridiculous after a while.

The country is overrun with killer zombies. When Tim, the protagonist witnesses a TV news video showing his wife and son being killed by a zombie, he goes on a mission of revenge. His mission is to hunt down that particular zombie...and kill him.

The plot is ridiculous. The ending is even worse. I skimmed the last three-quarters of this dreadful story because I was curious to know how it ended. I suspect that the author suddenly got tired of writing and simply added a closing paragraph that leaves the reader feeling abandoned and abused.

The book is loaded with grammatical errors and characters that do little more than react to situations, and it has no proper ending. I'm glad it was free, but that doesn't excuse the author for robbing us of our time. He invites the reader to ride with him, but rather than carry us to a promised destination he suddenly kicks us out of the car miles away from civilization.

And in Seattle it is cold. Single-minded and resolute main character.. Hard to wrap my mind around the motivation when chances you are gonna get eaten,

Read was ok but not great. I think Jim's revenge was a little over the top and UN realistic. Maybe it should have been to see if his son was alive would have been a better story. You would have then been rooting for the guy to hurry and admired him for his determination. Instead I felt him kind of whimpy
