But even with growing and hunting all that they still need to go out and loot for item's more important weapon upkeep.
I don't see how anyone who read this didn't noticed but um when Mallory and Ginny made to her Friend's retreat house that it said had high wall around the whole place and it was gated with keycode to get in. But when Charlie and ty showed up they can see everything and pull right up and get in the house. Taking out zombies showing up and someone just comes knocks on the door. How is that with the wall and gate? I have to knock of star for this. Don't know how got passed the editor?
It follows different characters as they navigate the hazards confronting them as they cope with the unfolding disaster. Their lives converge toward the end of the story. There are the usual ruthless mobs stealing from the weak, zombie attacks, and narrow misses. Very little zombie gore description, and for this story, that seemed appropriate.
I liked the characters, finding them sympathetic. I rooted for all their survival. The story was suspenseful and on occasion, I paged ahead to learn outcomes. The characters were guilty of doing stupid things along the way. But it's hard to fault characters in dealing with events so far out of their lives without making dumb decisions when exhausted and terrified.
I would have liked to see a little more development in the characters reactions to what was happening to them in relation to the people they loved and lost. There was an occurrence that jarred the narration, and the world building's logic that seemed tacked on, and too convenient. The finish seemed to end a little too easily, and abruptly.
But overall it kept me up, reading late into the night to see what would happen next. That's why the 5-star rating by me.
