Its really good!

Good zombie books are hard to come by. This one is probably one of the best there is. The plot is cliched alot but this book takes the problem of 'zombies' taking over the world and turns into one of my all time favs.

I decided to read this series in chronological order after buying both books. The writing is not bad, in fact, it's quite good. However, once the story got going, I quickly began to hate the Nilla storyline and her ridiculous invisibility gimmick. I couldn't believe what I was reading. Yes, even in a zombie novel, suspension of disbelief can only take you so far. There were a few other problems I had with the book. In one scene, a zombie (with human teeth, remember, this isn't a vampire) bites the neck of a 7 foot black bear and kills it. Please. A zombie would be hard pressed to pull out a clump of the bear's fur much less rip open its skin. In addition, every once in a while I would find some spelling errors which shouldn't happen in a professional novel costing $13.95. Other small details that took me out of the story was when a zombie threw a bone up at a flying helicopter and actually hit it. Wouldn't it be more poetic to have the bone be thrown at it and miss? The intention would still remain, but the reality wouldn't be flushed down the toilet. But okay, maybe that's being too picky. Anyway, I did enjoy Clark and Vikram's storyline and that was probably what kept me reading. Unfortunately, the ending wasn't satisfying, feeling rushed and thrown together without too much thought. I hear better things from critics about Monster Island, and being from New York City, I'm a little more excited now to read it.

    Monster Nation

    It was an ok, book. I am loyal to the more Max Brooks type of Zombie, so this book with its magic smart Zombies was a little off for me. I purchased all three books in the series and tore through them in about a week, over all I was bored by the end. World War Z was much better and kept me wishing it would go on and on and on and on.
