I think the following quote best sums the whole thing up: “All human armies need supplies, this army didn’t. No food, no ammo, no fuel, not even water to drink or air to breathe! There were no logistics lines to sever, no depots to destroy… It’s ironic that the only way to kill a zombie is to destroy its brain because, as a group, they have no collective brain to speak of. There was no leadership, no chain of command, no communication or cooperation on any level. There was no president to assassinate, no HQ bunker to surgically strike. Each zombie is its own, self-contained, automated unit, and this last advantage is what truly encapsulates the entire conflict… They had no limits of endurance. They would never negotiate, never surrender. They would fight until the very end…”
I am so glad that I got the book and read it. I liked the story a lot and it was interesting to see how different cultures, different countries, the military and groups of people fought, lived and died to save themselves. The story was well written and thought out. The scenarios were realistic and it made you feel like you were there with the people telling the story and living their experiences.
The book is far better than the movie. I wish the movie had followed some of the best excerpts of the book and they made the film from those stories. This is the first zombie book I have ever read and I wasn't sure how I would feel about it. I liked the story and it leads me to try other such stories.
I rate the book as five stars. Some of the tales in the book will put the spooky feeling in the back of your neck and others make you think about what you would have done in the same situation. Isn't that why you read, to stimulate your mind, use your imagination and entertain yourself or to learn. Get this book, you won't be sorry.
