It was interesting to read a book based outside of the USA. It will also be interesting to note whether that affects sales in any way, positively or negatively. Also a story with a female protagonist seems to be a minority creature in the genre, though one I welcome wholeheartedly.
This was a fun story, with good moments of darkness. In any story which starts right at the onset of the zombie apocalypse, there's some rich emotional and social territory to explore. Ms. Wilde gives her characters a little room and a little time to grow from regular old First-World-Problems folk into fully-fledged zombie-fighters. Indeed, the transition is only partial by the end of this first book, as should be expected. The story takes place over only a matter of days, from memory.
As with some other zombie apocalypse stories, I felt that on occasion, pacing was allowed to trump emotional development. Pivotal moments were treated slickly, though I'm unwilling to offer up events to illustrate my meaning, simply because they are so pivotal. To discuss them would spoil them for future readers.
At the time I read it, this book was free, and I believe at this moment it still is. Had I paid for it, I still would not have been disappointed. I'm not certain I'll continue with the series, but I'm leaning toward the "yes" side. These characters are nice kids (said the grumpy ol' Gen X reviewer).
Eva and friends find themselves suddenly in a Zombie Apocalypse. Their only hope for survival is to get to a faraway place. They have their fair share of Zombie battles and close calls. There were some things in this story, that I believed could have been left out. I also feel that it could have been longer. It almost felt like it was just the beginning. That was just getting a glimpse before the real story begins.
Because of how short it was, I didn’t really connect with any of the characters on an emotional level. So kind of felt as though, I was just watching them. The intense moments didn’t feel as intense as they could have been.
Overall, I give this Three Boundless Stars, it was a good start.
I was wondering through my kindle looking for a zombie read the other night, in hopes of something to tide me over until The Walking Dead came on this weekend. What I didn't expect was to start a book that would take over my entire night. It has been awhile since I have forgone sleep in order to finish a book. But I happily stayed up to see what was going to happen to these beloved characters that took hold of my heart just a few pages in.
I was blown away by the storyline and craved the zombies that Wilde wrote about. It was such a fantastic read full of death, zombies and gore. I was excited to see the rapid fall of civilization in this book. So many times we don’t get to see how it all happens. *cough* Fear The Walking Dead *cough* It definitely caught my attention and one of the reasons I loved this book so much. I now have a new author to stalk! 5 Fleshy Stars!
