It took me a long time to get into the story, until about 40%, because it jumped around a lot at first with the author setting up the characters and the backgrounds. Then it gets to the story of the survivors and was a good read right until the end.
This is not a stand-alone book; there is no resolution at the end. And from the author notes it appears the sequel has not been written yet. It's still worth reading, especially for free as it is as of this date (Kindle edition-I accidentally posted this review on the paperback edition.)
In response to the one other review, which was critical, the story does start out in a brothel but after that there is very little sex, and even in the brothel it is very mild.
It's hilarious to think that the sex scene in question offended these people MORE than buying a book about things that EAT people! I'm reading scenes that are quite intense in the depiction of zombies eating people, and yet that's OKAY to these offended readers? How can a person be okay with violent material but scream X over one exceptionally tame sex scene?
Really. (Shakes head)
Anyway, as zombie books go, I enjoyed this one. Esmont has a very readable style about him and his action sequences are well done. The characters in here are faced with some intense situations. There are some scenes that are very well presented, with a reasonable amount of gore. (I grew up with Stephen King and Brad McCammon, so I'm desensitized somewhat.) I just picked up the copy of Air, and I'm looking forward to getting into that.
If you enjoy zombie books--this is a fine read.
Highly recommended, and I look forward to the next installment.
For a zombie book it hit good on the gore that you except, but I never really felt any real fear of them. It seemed to me that there was never really any real threat, sure there where a few spots where things got tight, but it didn't come with the nail biting, jumping at the shadows feel to it. Honestly there where a few times that I forgot I was reading a book about zombies and had an "oh yeah" moment when they would suddenly come up again.
It could just be me, but I never got a close feel for any of the characters in the book at all. I could not have cared less if they all died at one point. I know that comes across as cold, but I like to have someone to cling to in books like this, and if they don't make it in the end I want to feel for them.
All in all I want to say it was okay, nothing terribly bad and nothing great. Kinda like eating a meal that has no real taste but fills you up so you are some what satisfied in the end.
I really couldn't find anything likeable in any of the characters. One of the female leads showed a few signs of becoming a strong character, but, then she would just fade out. The premise was a little shaky in that the virus swept around the world in a matter of hours with no explanation of how it started. Then the author unleashed atomic hell on what was left, but, it was OK 'cause none of the main characters seemed to have been affected by it. Some of the Zombies did become radioactive. One of the men lost his mother, two daughters and wife to the Zombies due to his own stupidity, the author should have kept the women and children alive and killed him. By the end of the book I really didn't care if they all died.
Probably the thing that is most annoying is the authors misuse of descriptive phrases. Once in a while NOT once and a while. She wouldn't give him the time of day NOT she wouldn't give him the time of the day.Read more ›
