Wow. I ploughed on with the book to find it ends on a cliff hanger. Well to be honest I saw the ending coming about 10 pages earlier.

Terrible writing, awful, and I mean god awful dialogue between all the characters.
All kinds of nonsense dialogie between them during supposedly tense action scenes.

So many pages taken up with banal conversations, did I mention the god awful dialogue? Just to make sure this sinks in, its bloody awful.

Why keep referring to the undead as zombies? "Quick, watch out for the zombie on your left" "there's too many zombies"

Imagine if you heard that in the walking dead??

And the teenage slushy romance? It seemingly takes place over weeks as its clear everyone falls in love with each other, including a guy who wants to date a girl dying from a bite. Christ that hair dialogue between the two was toe curlingly bad. Toe curlingly may not be a word, but neither is there're and that was in this book.

Also the action parts were poorly explained, hardly had a clue what was goin on as most things made no sense. Certainly felt like the author was about 13 herself

I won't be getting the next one as the characters were all so bloody wet and annoying I was hoping they'd be killed in some horrendous way everytime I turned the page.

Last time I trust amazon reviews on face value. All the 1 stars hit the nail on the head with this book. Its essentially the zombie version of twilight. If that's your thing then go for it. Anyone hoping for something a little more gritty as a post apocalyptic zombie book should be should swerve this. I only gave it one star because I couldn't give it zero, or minus.
Sorry Chrissy, you may be a nice lady, but a zombie author you ain't

This is my first review, but I felt I had to write it. I am a real lover of zombie lit, but this book had SO many inconsistencies in it that it made it difficult to read.....a jeep with a trunk? Filling up balloons with flour to distract zombies when you're about to be attacked? (Ain't nobody got time for that!). Just crazy inaccuracies and unbelievable story turns. It reminded me of stories I've read that were written by my middle schoolers. I won't be following the series, for sure. Very glad it was free....and the reason it got 2 stars instead of one. Someone needs to hire a good proofreader for MANY of the books I buy on Kindle/amazon. Find it hard to believe how many of them make it to this point with so many mistakes.

So disappointed - I was looking for something more like the Walking Dead novels. This book is just silly and inane, with ridiculous dialogue (really?? you actually have a character refer to the zombies as "those numbskulls" ????? Please ...). It should be rated for age 13 and under so adults don't waste their time. Sorry :(

There's no reason to read this unless you're 12 yrs old or younger. The limited range of the characters and the laughable dialog would suit that age range, but it's definitely not for people who can actually read or would like a story that's interesting. There are very few books in this world I can't manage to finish, but this is one of them. It's not worth it.

I could not make it through the second chapter. I love the Zombie genres, but this book is unreadable. The story is slow, the characters are not interesting and the dialogue is laughable. It’s my fault for not “Looking Inside” first.

This book is juvenile at best. The characters are weak lacking in structure. Sometimes I didn't know who was speaking because the characters sound similar. Their dialogue is not thought out. The storyline is is not smooth, but has breaks in it where useful information could have been narrated. The details are minimal. I could not get a clear picture of any of the locations. The idea is there but the execution is deplorable.

I just can't justify paying for the rest of the series. The description of the book does say that it is for "young" readers. There were just a lot of missing or just weird scenarios
1. When Dean Loses his sledgehammer fighting the zombie it says he hits it inthe head and breaks a piece of bone that kills the zombies brain? With what it doesn't say? His fist? Did he have on gloves? I'd hope so! How did he not get cut?

2 how the heck does a jeep have a trunk, especially one you can apparently lock yourself in? And how do 7 people and all their supplies fit in one.

3. What sort of magical properties does a bag of flour have that it can completely disorient a heard of zombies? How does this even sound like a remotely successful plan?

4. Have you ever tried to light diesel fuel on fire? Movie magic...

5. The relationship between the brothers and the cousins was just annoying... unless your 15 I guess? Three days on the road. No shower, no toothbrush? Keep your sweaty stink and your bad breath away from me.

6. How far did they get in all the time they were driving? No road blocks( other than a pile up) no thieves, no ambushes? On a major interstate? That seemed relatively clear of cars that may have been trying to get out dodge when the first outbreak happened.

It could have been a decent story. It really could have! It just wasn't a story I could stick with for another 4 segments. It should have been proof read or something. I am not a writer and excuse any grammatical error in my review. I just like to read a decent zombie book. If you want a decent series try " the remaining"
