This is essentially a self-published book, probably by some pimply kid or twenty-something with some dough to spare. It appears that the book was not edited in any way. In the first 6 pages, you come across the terms "US Marine Corp" (CORPS) and "it had fell" (clearly wrong). This makes the overall work come across as sophomoric and unprofessional. I couldn't get past that point, I was insulted I'd spent so much on it.
The prose is also childish, with descriptions about how the moon is shiny and spooky, and everyone does everything hurriedly, gingerly, etc. It's the kind of language I used when I wrote a "novel" at age 13. The characters are clearly one-dimensional husks that make the characters in any Romero film seem like Shakespearean creations.
Don't waste your money if you can't stand bad chop-shop jobs. If you can look past that and just want a thrill, I dunno, maybe this is for you. Personally, at about 380 pages, I'd rather get my cheap zombie thrills on screen.
I'll be sticking to Max Brooks.
I definitely recommend this book for the sheer enjoyment of the read.
It actually started out great. The first few chapters got me hooked, the characters seemed interesting and the premise good. My interest started to wane not long before the extremely drawn out build up of the Mayan prediction (dec 2012 blah blah blah). 75% of the way through the book, there was still nothing going on. Just pages and pages of boring dialogue from flat characters.
We finally jump back to the original group of characters, who far from the intrepid bunch I expected from the description at the outset, turn out to be the most stupid and careless pack of survivors ever. I found it hard to keep track of the supposed timeframe in this novel but I gathered they'd been "surviving" for some months. Goodness only knows how.

One of the first things they do is break into a hotel, clear only the lobby before they all enter, including injured woman and baby who have no hope of self defense, then set up home for the night in various rooms they also don't scout. Amazingly (thanks to the author) they encounter no zombies, but they are intrigued by a Banquet hall (because apparently food is stored in Banquet Halls, not the kitchen area used to cook said banquet) . Yet they do find food there and proceed to pack a ton condiments first. Sigh. Great idea, limited space and gas, lets waste space and weight on mustard.Read more ›

Ok, it's not that it's poorly written.....but it is.
It's basically chapter after chapter of how vaccines are controlled and shipped. If you want action, this isn't it. Read more

Well developed characters bring life to a story involving the dead. Along with that bit is easy to read and makes the need for more very imposing.Published 23 months ago by Kindle Customer
