This book is different!

This book is different from the very beginning - the only countries to avoid the zombie apocalypse are the Third World. One UN worker and a bunch of teenage Somali army girls have to travel to the US in order to gather medicine from the UN building. What happens in New York is horrific, but amusing at the same time. I would've rated this book a five; however, there is an ironic twist that just isn't very believable, even for a zombie book! All in all a good read that kept me turning pages!

eh.

This book was just ok. I read it in a few days, and I was a little disapointed with how it all went. The actual ending was pretty good. It left it where there could be another book, but I'm not sure if I'd read it.

    Read at your own risk

    If you are a true Zombie fan this book is very irritating. I love Zombie movies and all that, but this book left me with a bad taste in my mouth. It started out good then just became a chore to read. It was a little over the top.

    Quite dull and dissapointing

    For a zombie novel (and series) this first of three books is pretty boring. I picked it up in paperback when it first came out and only made it two chapters in before i put it down out of boredom. A couple years later i purchased it on my nook to try it again and got the same results. I wouldnt waste my time with this series or author if i were you. Stick to the masters like max brooks or brian keene.

    Slow paced

    Snoozefest. Read something actually good like day by day armageddon or tooth and nail.
