I don't get some of the reviews criticizing the main characters. They are clearly NOT preppers, military, or even some good old boys with hunting experience, and the point of view is clearly (obviously) female. I actually like that a Canadian can write a Canadian character in the zombie apocalypse and deal with the issues of having to handle firearms and other weapons for the first time, as well as taking a human life and all the psychological issues that come with that, from a non-Second Amendment loving American point of view (and I am, by all accounts, a Second Amendment loving American). In that sense, this book does a better job than most other ZA fiction, where American male authors seem to think you can simply shrug your shoulders and blow somebody away without a whole lot of consequence. So I put aside Iverson's misunderstandings about a clip and a magazine, or that silencers are just not floating around the U.S. all over the place or that they actually make a whole lot more noise than what many authors (and movie/TV shows) believe. Maybe her viewpoint feels more "female teen fiction," but m'eh, that's ok. It's something different while still doing OK as a ZA novel. I applaud her for trying that viewpoint in the zombie world when it seems to work well for female authors writing about vampires.
The wonders of e-reading is that I'll happily plunk down $2.99 for an e-copy of a 3 star book where I wouldn't plunk down 13, 15, or $19.99 for a hard copy of the same. I'll even read that second book in the series, and this first outing by Iverson was good enough for me to buy the second book.
This book was pretty great once you get through the first couple of chapters. If you feel like the main characters are a bit too immature and couldn't possibly survive this type of situation, then definitely give it a little time and read through to see how they grow! The beginning didn't seem to stand out in terms of an apocalyptic story, but once the action and suspense kicked in, you begin to really appreciate the plot and where the story goes. The supporting characters were interesting as well because some seem untrustworthy, while others are the type that I would want to run into if I was in the same situation. I'm not a huge fan of seeing children in catastrophe books because they usually don't contribute to the action, and you automatically assume that the author isn't going to kill a kid. However, this girl was lovable and actually handled the intense situations really well!
Overall, this story was amazing and had some thrilling "edge of your seat" moments! It might not be the best zombie story that I've read, but it's pretty incredible and it hooked me in, making me cringe with anticipation for the next one!! You should give it a try!
