Overall I did enjoy this book. It was well written and interesting. After reading many, many pages of the book I began to wonder if I was reading a zombie tale or not. It took way to long to come to the zombie part.

Not a bad story, nothing extraordinary but if you like zombie/apocalyptic stories this is fairly entertaining. A little weak on the actual apocalyptic nature of the event, but interesting none the less.

Hard to believe this is this young author's first effort. Great descriptive writing...I swear I kept smelling sweat, sex or blood, all the way through this horrifying, character driven, action read.

I LOVED IT! I felt like the book was more than a zombie tale..all towns are full of people just existing, going through the motions of life like the zombies do in the end of the book. hope to see more of this author.
