not realistic potrayal of characters
on May 20, 2011
I really found the way the author consistently bashed on "organized religion" througout the book to be a distraction. -Spoilers- In this book every evil character went to church and believed in Jesus, every good character belonged to a town where they banned organized religion and were "free" as a result. OK, I can live with that, however, the church people actually go out of their way to kill all minorities. Really? What about black christians?
From the beginning of the book to the end the Jesus believers commit atrocities and apparently there is not one church goer that has a problem with this, not one. Also, there wasn't just one church group in the book that was bad. All church groups were evil. For example, another pastor killed his entire congregation. Sorry, by I don't really see the likes of Billy Graham going on a murderous killing spree along with ALL of the believers left on the planet. Couldn't the author mix it up with some "good" christians? I think this author has an ax to grind with organized religion and it takes away from the book. I read a zombie book to escape, not listen to a rant about religious people. Also, there were far to many grammatical errors to be ignored. I don't mind this usually but I find it frustrating when I can't figure out what the author intended to say.
