Welmerink makes the crew and the Huron itself feel authentic and even without a military background I felt like part of the team. I've read a lot of zombie stories, but I haven't come across a zombie informant before. Certain zombies reminded me of Bub from Romero's 'Day of the Dead'. It gave some zombies something interesting to do besides be cannon fodder. I'm hoping zombie behavior will be expanded upon in the next books.
The only criticism I can come up with is the large amount of bull during the climatic showdown. As a graduate of 'Valley State University' I found it hard to suspend my disbelief at what they were able to accomplish over there. Also their motivation for doing so tugs at my mind. Still, there are other books ahead and maybe it will be expanded upon in future installments.
This gets five brains out of five. A must-read if you’re from West Michigan and a zombie fiction fan. It’s a should-read if you’re just a zombie fiction fan.
I love how the author keeps present events in the forefront of the tale, never weighing the reader down with backstory, but revealing just enough to tease and intrigue. A virus in 2013? A world-wide disaster? Refugees? Towns building walls? It all comes together into a place that’s convincingly dangerous, with feral threats beyond the walls and political threat within, with a recent past subsumed by present need, and with wounded characters wearing only half their scars on their skins.
Fast action, neat storyline, well-hidden plot, great characters, and a world that’s broken in so many ways… what more could you need. I couldn’t put this down.
Disclosure: I was given a copy during the author’s blog tour. I’m just sorry it took me so long to get around to reading it.
The story itself is somewhat different to the other zombie books I've read so far, and that's refreshing too, but those same things seemed a bit irrelevant in this first book, I hope to see that change in the next chapters. I find the description and naming of the vehicles somewhat jarring, broke the flow, so to speak, but that's just my preferences.
'The Mascot' I thought was completely unnecessary to the story and definitely seemed a bit weird, but as Transport is a series, perhaps there will be something more to it later on. Overall, Transport is one of the most competent zombie novels I've read for a while, and is a solid introduction to its series, but there is definitely room for improvement.
