3.0 out of 5 stars Good promise. December 2, 2012
By Niknak
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A different storyline March 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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

2.0 out of 5 stars This felt forced. April 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bland May 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Satisfying April 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The setting of the book is very intriging. The characters are a little over-the-top and seem to jump to conclusions without thinking everything through. Leaves you thinking "but what if?" "how does he know that ___ didn't happen?"
In my opinion, the story just ends. I would have liked more closure. I'm not expecting a "hapily ever after", but some kind of closure is needed.
Overall, a quick read, a pageturning read. A good timekiller. Just not a very satisfying one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of Zombie book March 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the basic idea of this book - that someone would want revenge on a Zombie. The writing is good, and it is an enjoyable read. I agree with people who say that you don't care about the characters. They don't really have strong reasons for doing anything, except that the protagonist wants revenge on a Zombie - and that's dumb on a bunch of different levels. liked it enough to recommend it to people who like the Zombie genre.
