This book is entertaining as a zombie survival novel, but I would not define it as a dark comedy. Perhaps I have an odd sense of humor, but I did not find a lot of laughs in the situations or dialogue. The dialogue can be somewhat stilted at times, and several characters can be flat out annoying at others.
Conversely, the action and adventure of this book is pretty good for a book like this. The pace keeps cracking along once it gets going, and does not let up much. The descriptive writing is also well done.
For me the biggest issue with this however so that the characters are not differentiated enough to really tell them apart much beyond Stoner, Jerk, Jock, etc. When you don't put weight behind the characters sometimes it becomes an issue of people not becoming emotionally invested enough in them surviving. I would have liked to see more use of the different types of zombies as well.
Overall, an entertaining effort, but could use some refining.
One, why didn't Jeff and Will shoot Strick immediately? It seemed obvious they should have. Two, the sexual tension between Brogan and Will was palpable, even though they supposedly had significant others. It was also blatant between Brogan and Dustin. Three, Pete seemed like he probably was super great looking. And last, I just wanted to mention that Jeff seemed like despite his character flaws, he was the rock keeping that group together and my personal favorite character.
I also want to purchase the second book.
My only problem was the bears and that maniac. Please don't just toss things in without some sort of reasoning within it. Not even when they ran into the military at the end there was still no account about that.
Other than that and a few minor typos it was a good book. Kudos!
