I give this book a solid 2 and half stars. The concept of the story was awesome. However the repeating of things over and over got tiresome, and the flipping back and forth between past and present was awful at best. I ended up flipping through the last pages without reading them and still got the full gist of the story.

but to be honest,the writing is kind of amateurish. Someday the author will be very good, if he can find an editing team willing to guide him. The story has some very good bones and could've been first-rate. I'd like to read something of his in ten years time. I think it'll be excellent.

I found this story to be all in all very good, only reason it got 4 out of 5 stars was due to it repeating some parts I had already read but I imagine that is for the people that didn't get the complete collection. I highly recommend any zombie story fan reading this collection as it deals with a lot of the more human issues of a zombie outbreak over just the zombies themselves.

The story concept was good, but several things keep this from being great..The story is broken into 4 very small sections, as if the author was trying to emulate Stephen King's Green Mile concept. This kept the story from flowing as it should. The entire set makes for an average sized novel - and should have been put together as such. The author jumps from time to time, without the good flow of a proper conceived flashback. Then frequently repeats entire paragraphs word for word as if the reader would not remember something that which they just read 5 or 10 pages before. I read the whole set, and as I said, this could be a great zombie story with a surprise ending. But it would need to be completely rewritten in a flowing time line with only a few flashbacks to complete the surprise at the end.

I loved the way the zombie apocalypse started and the aftermath of what people/society had to overcome to survive. However (no spoilers) I didn't care for the ending of the 4th book/end of the series.

This is an interesting story very similar in plot to the hit tv show walking dead. There were many twists and turns, but the story fell short with minimal character development as well as rapidly moving through a couple decades of events. I liked how it switched back and forth, but would have thoroughly enjoyed a much more detail oriented story...it could have been stretched in to a series four times as long and I would have been riveted.

I like the story line. One issue I have is mistakes in the actual story. For instance when Owen is trapped in the rain and calling around for help one paragraph said her name was Molly then the next one it was Phoebe. Another part says Michael and Eva were married then a page later bride to be. I also found other mistakes. I am not a proof reader just a very AVID reader. Maybe I need to look for employment in proofreading

I didn't care for the writing style of the first book in this series, way too melodramatic/prose-y.

The second and third books were a flashback to what happened b/f the group ended up on the island, and told the backstory. It was a pretty good read.

The third finally picked up the story from the first book, and the ending does have a twist! I didn't see that coming, so that was a really nice surprise.

However, I kept wondering at points about the 'reality' of the world the author created.
In the first book, it is mentioned that an 18 month old must rely on breastmilk b/c there was nothing else on the island for him to eat.

Really? An 18 month old can eat fish as well as any adult, along with vegetables and other foods. And yet we're not really told what they eat. No gardening is mentioned. Being a rocky Maine isle I guess this makes sense, but....

How have the group survived on just fish for over 15 years? In all that time the leader never sent scouts to find seeds and plants to try to grow on the island, or else moved them to a better growing location/island?

Of course, this would fit in with the final picture of the leader, but still...

So, an okay read (kind of annoying going back and forth, ect) but not enough day to day detail (too many questions left unanswered for me) to really make this 'meaty'.
