Great book. Very funny. Real!!!
Very good information on other beliefs. Characters who are not one dimensional. A must read for zombie fans.
This is a fun series on the whole and I like the main characters but this book could have benefited from losing about 75 pages. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Veronica 87
