To the author:
Hello Ogre. This is Exodus from WTA. I lurk more than I write. Love the forum. I think Uprising USA would be better received if it had a foreward explaining how it began on WTA. Also, a second edition with some time in the editing room would be great.
Thanks for the entertaining read. Now I've got to pick up UK. Looking forward to Russia!
Being a frequenter of the gun-blogs and forums in my spare time, I believe I was the target audience for this series. I liked the "source" for the zombie infection he used, and believe it works better than most. The post-zombie-apocolypse was really the focus, but I was really hoping for a trope-defying turn where the zombie problem is taken care of quickly and with minimal damage. Even as a designed plague, the transmission method and extremely short incubation time makes the world-ending result break my suspension of disbelief.
Others have mentioned the occasional issues that could be edited. They are there and I would suggest they be addressed; however in the modern age where I like many others have been through schools with this many grammatical and spelling errors(or more!) in text books, and where everyone reads everyone's ramblings on blogs, twitter, and facebook, these issues are easily passed over due to story's ability to draw you in.
It's not a perfect book, it has numerous editing and formatting issues in the Kindle edition, some of the plot could be tighter (like what happened at the Zoo and what was up with the relationship with his wife?), and a few typos and changing names (Joyce or Louise Rasmussen?), it's a no holds barred, fast paced, Zombie killing time, with enough technical details on guns, vehicles, and gear, with girls, to keep his audience happy. I certainly was.
It's also a major shout out to the Horde, apparently if you want to survive the coming Zombie uprising, you need to be either a blood relative or someone George knows :)
I enjoyed the book, fast and good action, characters that aren't idiots cowering in a panic waiting to become Zombie snacks, I laughed out loud a couple of times, grinned a bunch, cheered as someone deserving got an injection of hot lead, and grumbled over some rough parts.
I give it 3.5 stars, but I'm going to round down for Amazon's rating scale, needed a little more time to bake and a good editor to tidy it up, but those cons don't negate the awesomeness of it all.
And if you are a Horde member and do not like this book, please turn in your man card. I'm afraid that's the way it has to be.
Right from the beginning it's 0-60 in 3.2 seconds as far as action goes, and the Girl Squad, wow, I want to see this in a movie just to see them in action.
Among the action is the questions, who did it, who are the red-eyes, man's darkest nature and a family struggle.
It does have a few grammatical errors but thats the only reason it got 4 stars. I'm wasn't a fan of zombies before but I'll definetly start following the series. And Praise The Musket!
