    A memorable story beaten down by poor editing

    The bones of this story are excellent, but every time I started to get really wrapped up in it I was pulled back to reality by grammatical errors, glaring typos or stilted phrases. A merely competent editor could do wonders with this book; a good one could easily put it in my top five.

    I Also Recommend:

    Must read for zombie fans

    I enjoy reading stories about Zombie survival. The majority of the books I've read over the past couple of years were mostly about zombies (aside from the Dresden series by Jim Butcher). Some better than others but I generally enjoyed all of them to a certain extent.

    While I will sit down and read it regardless, (with the exception of Breathers: a Zombie's Lament) I try to avoid the zombie stories where they can talk, have super powers, or drive cars and shoot machine guns.

    Some of my favorite Zombie books are World War Z and Day by Day Armageddon. Those books felt real to me, reading those books made me feel like I was reading about the life of the character or characters in the story. To be honest, its been a while since I really really enjoyed reading a zombie book.

    I had no idea what to expect when reading the 'As the World Dies' series. To be honest, as much as I like reading books, I usually hate having to go through the first few chapters. Granted, the beginning is necessary in order to build up to the rest of the novel, most of the time while informative the beginning is boring to me.

    'The First Days' is an attention grabber right from the get go. I was surprised at how quickly I was engulfed with this story.

    The actions of both Katie and Jenni as well as the other people they encounter through this journey are believable and well thought out. I cannot recall how many times while reading a book I thought to myself "that is just silly or does not make sense". The actions and reactions of the characters in this book felt believable and real.

    Another thing I really appreciated is how the zombies are portrayed. It's one thing to have believable characters but to me it's just as important to have believable zombies.

    I cannot say how much I really enjoyed being able to read this book and read about zombies, just regular zombies (even the running kind which I find terrifying), and not crazy ones with telepathy and crazy powers (like an undead version of heroes).

    I really have enjoyed reading the 'As the World Dies' stories. Definitely in my top ten of 'must read' for zombie fans (top 5 if you consider the trilogy as a single series).
