For the first 25% of the book or so, I really struggled to get into the story as I was finding the repetitious "drive around, shoot zombies, loot in painstaking detail, return home" scenes more reminiscent of, as another reviewer noted, a role-playing game, one created by someone who likes guns & stuff a bit too much. I kept waiting for Wylie to level up and earn a big chunk of EXP. For me this was, at first, distracting from the larger story.
That said, as I read I got used to the rescue-and-loot-missions rhythm of the book and found myself really caring about what was happening in the lives of the characters. Roberts is an excellent writer and really does a nice job painting a vivid picture of a town destroyed and those who survived. The level of detail he's put in this book, while occasionally bordering on tedious, is astounding and overall makes for a really immersive reading experience.
I'm still iffy on other zombie stories, but I look forward to reading the rest of this particular series!
I liked the way that fact was woven into the story, it helped make it more real for me. On the other hand I had to question when enough was enough and when it was time to look after your own it is an apocalypse after all. That being said I thought some parts like the lengths the government would go to were over the top, but made for good villains. I also thought that it was a bit two dimensional at times with an us vs. them simplicity. Looking forward to seeing what happens in the next installment, Chrispy
Our protagonist really wasn't all that deep or well developed and the other characters were generic male buddy or adoring female placeholders that never came to life. Nor were there really any intrigues or conflicts to the story. A couple conflicts with other characters were briefly highlighted but they really weren't ongoing, they were conflicts with side characters who for all intents vanished from consideration afterwards.
This attention to detail did result in a novel better grounded in reality than most of the genre and I'll continue reading the series hoping that he capitalizes on some of the possibilities and begins
