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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.

A little predicated but also has some good plot twists and keeps you involved with the main characters. It helps if you know some of Seattle's geography, too.Published 11 months ago by Richard Toms
