Wow, excellent read. This is one of those that you just can't put down until you finish it. After going through my share of zombie books, I've finally found one that gets close to being on par with Day by Day and World War Z. --Frontlaven

This is a nearly flawless story... --BuyZombie

This book is a great read. The zombies are the old fashioned kind, which is how I think they should be. The action is good and believable. The blood and gore are not over the top. The characters are believable people and not all rambo types. The story is something I could relate to.
One important thing in this story is the characters were not just holed up beating off zombies they were looking to the future and wanting to have a real life again. That is missing in a lot of zombie novels and was refreshing here.
I really enjoyed this one and hope another is on the way. the book was actually a decent length for a change and didn't have a rushed ending, it didn't stop right in the middle of something and make you wonder if the characters would live or die. with the end of this book I was left with the feeling the characters would have a good future eventually. I wouldn't mind another book to see how they do it and the growth of the characters as they fight and build.
Everyone who loves zombie books should get this one. Idon't think you will regret it.
this is now my favorite zombie book now. I hope the author writes more soon. I would definately buy any other books he cares to write.

I'm big fan of post apocalyptic zombie fiction and am always looking for a new book set in a zombie filled world. It seems the genre has been revitalized recently and subsequently the market has become inundated with new novels. This makes it difficult at times deciding on which book to purchase. When I run into this problem I usually pull up the reviews on Amazon and select the one with overall positive reviews. White Flag of the Dead drew my interest so I read the reviews and was surprised to see an overwhelming positive response. At the time, 74 out of 90 reviewers gave the book four or more stars. The reviews were absolutely glowing with praise. One writer went so far as to call it a "great piece of literature." I purchased the book and was sure I would not regret it. I could not have been more wrong. In my opinion the reviewers of White Flag fall into one of three categories or a combination thereof: 1-Authors family and friends 2-Paid endorsers 3-The author himself. My reason for this conclusion is based on the fact that I simply can not believe any legitimate reviewer could heap so much praise and adoration on a book barely fit for kindling.

I'll start with the grammatical, spelling and formatting issues. Did anyone even glance at this book before it went to print? It was stated in a few reviews that there were some problems of this nature present but even these complaints seem to have been downplayed as if it were only a very minor issue. It's actually fair to say that there were errors on just about every page. I'm not talking about simple typos but glaring in your face mistakes that continually threw off the flow of the story, not that it was very fluid to begin with.

The writing itself was top notch. I'd just like to say that first, to get it out of the way. Aside from a few editing/format issues (I own it for the Kindle so I don't know how the print version is) the book was wonderfully put together. End of compliments.

The biggest issue I have with this book is John (the main character) and how he becomes a master at pretty much everything he does in this book. At about the half way point I became bored with John coming in and saving the day. The entire book is essentially this one character doing everything. Apparently all it takes for a desk jockey to become a special forces level hard ass is zombies. Who knew?

My other issue is the main characters child in the book, so often the baby makes no noise, being a father of 2 young children I can say with some authority that does not happen. In fact that required more suspension of disbelief than the desk jockey thing.

There are other issues with the book like characterization. Pamela (I think that's her name) is initially introduced in a very cheesy mad max kind of way and nothing is ever done to explain why she acts that way or later why she really does the things she does.

Like I said at the beginning of this, the book is wonderfully put together. Talluto has a bright future in the field. There's just some kinks in the story.

Though I've never read zombie books before, I love and have watched many a zombie film. The only reason I bought this book was because a friend of mine said they liked it. This is not the kind of book I normally read, but I was willing to give it a chance. Am I glad I did! Once I started reading, I did not want to stop!

The main character, a school principal turned zombie killer, is very real. He says and does things that may rub people the wrong way, but, ultimately, he is a good man who is just trying to keep his baby son alive. I found myself caring for these characters more than I usually do when I read books.

The best part of this book for me was the fact that zombies were not the only enemy. The main characters must fight against other survivors that have used the zombie infestation as an excuse to indulge their most repulsive sexual and violent desires.

The book is incredibly well-written and packed with action. I can't wait for another book from this fantastic author!
