I liked the story. It gave a neat twist to the traditional zombie tale. Yes, the twist is kinda silly, but it's still fun. The characters were well written. Even supporting characters were given just enough detail to flesh them out, even the zombies! (No pun intended,ok well maybe a little bit intended.)
The ending is a twist as well. It' s also a bit of a cliff hanger. You never really get to find out what's happened to all the characters. Amazingly it's not as annoying as it sounds. I guess that is due in part to the fact that this is only the beginning of the series, so one would hope that certain characters would reappear in further installments.
Considering the ending and the fact that this is less a tale of zombie survival and more a tale of government cover up that involves zombies, I really have to say I enjoyed Zombie Day Care. There's a lot of background social satire in certain parts that had me laughing at the fact that I could see people actually arguing over zombie's rights and stuff. Don't get me wrong, it isn't a comedy, but the story doesn't get caught up in taking itself too serious.
I definitely plan to pick up a copy of the next book in the series. I want to see what happens to some of the characters, as well as to the world in general since the zombie problem was far from fixed. I also want to see if the author's sarcastic wit still carries on through the series.
The story is a quick read with a moderate amount of action. I didn't really connect with the characters - they all were a bit off. Nate, who starts the story, reminds me of Eric, from Eric the Zombie Slayer. A lucky douche, basically.
There is a mild thread in the book - global population control. I assume this is explored in the following "Impact" series.
Unless I'm confusing books, this one references a favorite song of mine - 'Run From the Hills" by Metal Maiden (aka Run to the Hills from Iron Maiden). Okay, at least I got a chuckle from it.
Enjoy and drink Dr. Pepper
Unfortunately the author never really gets us there.
The characters are really more caricature than character. The plot is predictable, unless it is taking a seemingly random left-turn out of nowhere.
Additionally, there are so many basic editing, spelling, and grammar errors that I had to force myself to finish even the very short read. If this book was edited, than neither the author nor editor are aware of simple rules such as a comma always follows a name used in direct address, a "chute" is not a "shoot", and numerous other examples I don't care to revisit.
Overall I can not recommend someone paying for this book. If you are really into the concept and don't care for glaring errors, maybe you'll find some brief enjoyment, however I found the pacing, lack of character development, awkward plot, and multiple mistakes breaking my immersion far too often.
I don't intend this to be mean-spirited. As an editor I have great respect for authors and their efforts, but my honest review is that this work needs more, well, work...
A zombie outbreak is sweeping the world, and cities are falling into chaos as people’s loved ones turn and attack—Nate McDaniel is running from his hungry zombie girlfriend Jeanine, who chases him tirelessly until a final confrontation in a convenience store. There, Nate McDaniel makes a discovery (and a pretty hilarious one) that saves the world and makes him a hero—and soon scientists are penning and observing zombies as they desperately seek a cure to turn their loved ones human again. Henry is one of those scientists, and he and his girlfriend Tori are soon facing off against the evil plans of Henry’s brother, Jimmy.
“Zombie Day Care” is a fun and entertaining read, and I like how civilization hangs on beyond the initial apocalypse—it’s an interesting take and stands out from the other survival-based zombie tales in the genre. It has a nice mix of gore, action, and both good and evil characters that keeps the plot moving along. Recommended to readers who enjoy well-written horror, especially horror with a sense of humor and a unique plot.
