Now, that said, I do need to address the fact that the publisher on this book completely dropped the ball. I was extremely disappointed in the editing that was done on this book. I am the type of reader that becomes completely engrossed in a book when it is this good. I read much of this while my home was being pounded by a hurricane. But, when there are glaring mistakes made that even the most inexperienced of editors should have easily caught, it pulls me right out of the story and completely disorients me.
My suggestion? Dear Publisher: find another COMPETENT editor for Mr. Lowther's books. His writing deserves that and those of us that purchase the book also deserve it. Don't be the fly in the ointment for a very talented author.
The one element that detracted from the book for me was the writing about firearms. I have a hard time when a revolver is fitted with a silencer in film or in a novel... Once that happens so much credibility is lost. It's just such a basic thing. One minute of conversation with the guy manning the counter at your local gun store would be all the research needed. Some of the descriptions of other silenced weapons were also a bit preposterous - silencer is not an accurate term. A rifle fitted with a suppressor is relatively quiet. The key word is relatively - as in a very loud noise is quiet relative to a very, very, very loud noise.
But it's a novel about zombies so I imagined that there had been some future innovations in design of weapons, suppressors, and ammunition, and got on with enjoying the hell out of the story.
Anyway, this novel was extremely well written from a logical plot formulation and execution. Great, realistic storyline and thought-provoking mini-plots throughout. Had a great ending that was summerized by two different character epilogues that really finalized the book and let you put it down satified everything was wrapped up and resolved. Plus, made it easy to create a sequel. Finally it was over 600+ book pages long - just around my minimum length to allow good character and realistic plot development.
I definitely plan to read other novels from this author as his work sells itself. You will NOT be dis-appointed in this book, unless you are one of the reviewers who complains that the novel was too long and too hard to follow...
