You will follow the lives of several people who are trying to survive the horror's. I will let you read other reviews about these people. What I did find very interesting was how each event did not always turn out how I espected, really keep my interest with many surprises, twists and turns! Recommend for true Zombie lovers!!!!
This book begins itself fairly well. The part of the lead is portrayed fairly well. The author made him a simple, almost non-descript person. Your average Joe. Who just so happens to have the misfortune to find himself in the middle of the zombie apocalypse. He starts his journey away on a business trip and begins to make his way back home.
And now the suspension of belief comes into play. The author suddenly moves from being rational to... suddenly having the hero jump to some rather insane conclusions. I'm not sure this is a spoiler, as it's mentioned in the title, but hey. Be warned now. There are your harmless zombies, your standard zombies, and then you have your more dangerous and apparently intelligent "demon" dead. You're suddenly thrown the idea (pretty much outta nowhere) that the only explanation for the faster and smarter zombies: they're possessed by demons.
Oooooookay. Well, that seems to be one hell of a stretch, but when that's the only idea given by the writer... well, I found it hard to swallow. I can see all sorts of people trying to rationalize a zombie outbreak, and no doubt, there would be cults springing up left and right saying it's demons come to earth... but the way it's spoon fed to you by the writer as the only plausible cause... I'm sorry. I just can't do it.
Overall: Eh... well, the writing itself is excellent. I really did appreciate the authors style. I can see him putting out some really good work in the future. But this one just left me dubious. If you like a good zombie apocalypse read, go for it. If you're dabbling in the genre... move along.
This is a great story with a great premise. It's well written, well developed and has characters that are easy to grab on to and identify with. Even the author bio was fun.
If there is a negative it's the editing. Punctuation, word substitutions... Lots of "there" instead of "their", things like that. Here and here it would hardly even be noticeable but it's everywhere, on every page. Those two issues made reading a little slow in some places because I would somehow confuse context.
Buy it, read it, enjoy it. I'm looking forward to the next one.
