Hard to believe that an adult version of the Choose Your Own Adventure concept has not been done like this before... the possibilities are endless here. I could see Wallace developing a cult following with these books. I'm definitely looking forward to the next one...
There is no romance here, there is only survival of the fittest and the smartest. And sometimes the obvious choice for survival got you killed and the riskiest choice gets you to the next level. Like I said, it was nerve wracking, and I think I went through every option available before I finally survived and escaped Zombie City. If you are a horror and zombie fan, then I believe you will love this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book, Escape from Zombie Island, and this time I will be taking more chances and hope to get off the island before I die many horrible, horrible deaths. What fun!!
That said, I did enjoy the book. I took me a while to find the right path, and the choices made sense for the most part. The writing style was entertaining, though I did find myself skipping ahead to see if I would actually die, because the death scenes can sometimes take a very long time to develop, and it makes no sense to read ahead five minutes only to find out you have died.
Nevertheless I found myself having a lot of fun with this one. The descriptions of the zombies are really good. It is truly the most challenging CYOA I have ever done, though unfortunately there was a lot of randomness to it as far as choosing what direction to go/what street to go down, choices you really cannot solve using logic or zombie survival intuition. I wish there was less of a luck element to it.
Also, you shouldn't get this if you are annoyed at having to backtrack after you've gotten to a dead end. There is a back button that usually takes you back built into the Kindle device, but sometimes it won't work. It would be nice if back links were included at the end of death scenes. I had to start over from the very beginning several times just to find my way back.
If you're a fan of the CYOA genre or zombies in general, then you will probably enjoy this book. It is reasonably priced...only be ready for a challenge.
