I think there was a good framework for the story here, it just got a little lost somewhere in development. I think the major flaw in this book was the use of real characters, obviously friends of the author. To me the whole story seemed forced by the inclusion of these characters. It greatly reminded me of high school English projects where you would include your friends in whatever story you were writing. I think the development of new characters would have freed up the story a little bit by forcing more character development.
Some minor spoilers below:
I won't go into too much nitpicking of the overall plot, mainly because it does require suspension of belief since it is fiction work. However, using nukes and other military strikes to destroy bridges, tv stations, a small town doctor who is apparently at the forefront of "zombie" research does push my limits.
Overall, I think that it could be the start to a really good book, but I just felt like the writer wanted to be able to write a zombie story that all of his buddies were a part of. Starting with predefined characters really limited what could be done with the story. It's not a bad read for an afternoon, but I probably wouldn't read it had I known what I know now.
Second, it's easy to read. Quite a few characters to keep up with, tho'; would have been best to concentrate on three or four.
It needs to be proof read. Lots of errors (isle instead of aisle; prolly instead of probably -- several times) and typos.
Not crazy with the 'real' characters; many scenes and dialog seemed forced, and included just for the sake of giving these 'real' characters something to do. Some characters are handled better than others; most notably, Shane, April, Artez, and Corey.
But what cost the book a star was the incomplete feel about it, and the 'the military is the enemy' cop out that is already overused. There was a lost potential taking this easy way out.
About the only truly disturbing aspect of the book was the youthfulness of the victims, but even they were portrayed as cannon fodder and little else.
If you like zombie books, this should satisfy.
