Good promise, a page turner, but I didn't care about the characters and completely didn't get the motivations. It felt a little forced and by the end I just had to groan. It was frightening to me as it was set in my city of Seattle, so that was very interesting to me. If you have time and like a zombie yarn, try it. Otherwise, maybe keep looking.

I am a huge fan of David Wellington. I fell in love with his Monster Island, Nation, and Planet books. Then...he decided to explore other elements. I am not against a horror writer in the zombie genre toying with other ideas, but I also think "you dance with the girl what brung ya" and this story just felt like it was thrown together to shut up his zombie fans. His heart just didn't seem to be in this. His story telling was mediocre and he gave us characters that were flat, unlikable, and uninspiring.

I am not against his 13 Bullets story or anything else, but when he does throw his zombie fans a bone, I would hope that he put more into it. I will wait eagerly for the next one, and I will get it with the hope that the Wellington I am a huge fan of will return.

I enjoyed this story although the plot line of going back and getting revenge seemed a little far fetched. The main character is interesting in the fact that he is very ordinary. In fact he even seemed overly reactive to every occurrence. There were many instances where I was thinking what the hell are you doing? The story was still intriguing though not the best apocalyptic book I've read. There were a lot of confusing actions by many characters. Still an enjoyable read however

This was my first read by David Wellington, and I can certainly call myself a fan now and will indeed purchase more of his stories! This was an exciting, dark thrill that had me on the edge of my seat, white-knuckled just anticipating the worse that could possibly happen. But Tim...man this guy landed a rank in my book-boyfriends list, let's just say.

He's nerdy and quite intelligent and his personality in the book is rather believable though he didn't have much to say as he finally made new acquaintances, but he was always thinking and plotting how to worm his way out of difficult occurrences and stay focused on his mission of revenge.

Now, remember, while I am a girl, it's only natural that I make a comment like the one following this statement! I love action-packed Zombie novels just as much as any other person, but here's a little slip of the girl talk; he strikes me as a cool, collected man and while he may be calm in nature, he is the fierce protector, a loyal family man that any woman would be lucky enough to have; and he proves that by the measures he takes to accomplish his revenge on his dead family...

But before I spoil anything past this little quip...here is my review.

After accomplishing a full day at the annual American Library Association conference in Chicago Tim--our hero in this thrilling-ride of a book-- returns to his hotel room and flips on the television and is in disbelief when breaking news reports that a horrendous, flesh-eating plague has broken out in his home town of Seattle.

Upon closer examination of the streams of live video feed, a tricky play of fate bestows him a brutal scene of his neighbor tearing out Tim’s wife from the their car as their son fights for his life in the back seat.

Okay so this book was really good. I loved David Wellington's Monster Island, Monster Nation and Monster Planet. This was one pretty much on par with those.

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

Okay so this book has our main character Tim is making his way north from California to Seattle. He saw his wife be attacked by a zombie on TV during a broadcast that was nationwide. So he is determined to go back home, find the zombie that killed his wife and kill that zombie to get revenge.

While that's not a bad story idea, the story does have it's short comings. For example, I don't like when authors use the "Sadistic Military Official," as a villain. However this time it was done right. We have Colonel Horne, a man who is charged with securing Seattle and making it safe for re-occupation. This antagonist was just perfectly written, I could almost feel Tim's hatred for the man radiating from my Kindle.

Tim is captured and taken in by Horne. Horne is such a sadistic man that won't let Tim go get his revenge so he is forced to stay in the safe area. However he breaks out and goes to look for his wife's killer. What doesn't make sense is that in order to trick Tim into coming back, Horne dresses a kid up to look like Tim's child and brings him to show Tim. Tim is fooled and thinks this is his child. Not one parent that I know would EVER mistake someone else's child for their own. So that part is not very realistic.

I did like very much that Tim knew that RFID chips are not a GPS tracking device and that Horne was lying about them. Everyone I meet thinks that they can be tracked by them but it's good to see that this character had a brain in his head and knew they weren't.
