Let's see...A man chases a women, after she lets him know that she doesn't want to have sex with him. He finally corners her and she tells him no again. However, he can see the "come hither" look in her eyes, so he rapes her. She's satisfied and invites him to come with her. What the @#$%?
No, this isn't a modern courtroom drama, it happens in post apocalyptic New Orleans. It seems that violence against women, and the justification there of, never ends.
There will be men and women who will read this and feel that the reasons for their actions and reactions have been confirmed-"she wanted it; I deserved it".
I know that authors will say that the genre "fiction" speaks for itself. However, words become ideas and ideas become actions.

I had the chance to screen this book and I was very impressed. Without giving too much away, I'm usually not a fan of zombie stories that follow the particular path this one does, I usually find them forced and too dark to allow any room for a sympathetic character. I think the difference here is that sympathetic character was not the intention, so it is allowed to develop naturally.
Very atmospheric and some great attention to detail. Highly enjoyable and highly recommended!
