Not only did I get a chuckle going, "Hey, I know that person!" every other character, but Shane's added perspective from the view of the zombies makes this a very different sort of read.
I can't wait to see what he does for part two.
Take everything you have ever seen about zombies and through it out the window. This takes the zombie genre, puts a religious twist from an nonreligious place and then sets it out into the world to devour it. As the world falls apart, a rag tag group of survivors begin a journey of survival in a world gone horribly awry. These are not your typical zombie survivors, either. This is a band of geeks, guided by Chewbacca himself, Peter Mayhew (ok, so he is not the main character, but come on... its FREAKING CHEWBACCA).
All in all, this is a very enjoyable read, but it is not without its flaws. Honestly, I would have preferred a little more meat to the story, as there are too many things that are glossed over a bit too much for my liking and a few of the characters are a little flat (but these are relatively minor ones) but over all it is an excellent first step into the genre (in my limited opinion) and look forward to the next book.
Since Amazon doesn't support fractional stars, here is my precise rating - 3 and 3/4 stars out of 5. It is most definitely worth the purchase as either a Kindle edition or Dead Tree Edition.
First the good. The story IS rather interesting and isn't as formulaic as other zombie novels, that much is true. I loved the first few chapters explaining the beginnings of outbreak and the Biblical bits because I haven't seen that explored that much in zombie novels (or films, really). It's usually a virus or of unknown origins, so it was fun an refreshing to read a zombie story that took its origin story from the Bible.
The progression is good and this is easily a page-turner, doesn't take much to read it. I read half of it on a walk through the city, so good sign there.
Now my problems with Moore's book: has no one noticed the insane amount of errors? I wonder if this book was proofread? On more than one occasion there was a repeat of the previous sentence! There were a lot of missing prepositions, false starts and words that were missing all together - sometimes I wasn't sure what was intended to go in those little holes. I'm sure this makes me sound like a stickler but there are A LOT of mistakes and when it reaches a certain level I find it harder and harder to read.
My last issue, and this is completely a personal gripe, but it seems to be a total self-insert. I have a hard time taking authors seriously when they blatantly make themselves the main character - it's reminiscent of Mary Sues for me. If he had named the main a character ANYTHING other than Shane I wouldn't have noticed but, 20 pages in, I thought 'huh', read his bio and was a little miffed. Again, totally my own weird issue with the book, I don't expect this to bother anyone else ;)
So, I just took one star off for the large amount of errors - I really wish they would have edited this more carefully, it deserved a thorough read through.
