I love this book! The details in the book about the zombies and the characters is what makes this book a page-turner. It's rough around the edges, but books aren't meant to be scrutinized negatively, but be enjoyed for what they are!I loved it all from beginning to end, this is the book that got me into horror books.Was this review helpful?

This book was really great. Purchased it on an off chance I might like it, and ended up loving it. It was very thought provoking and heartbreaking. It was almost like you could put yourself in the characters positions and heartaches. A must read for lovers of Stephen King and Bently Little.!!!Was this review helpful?

This is my first and probably my last Bryan Smith book. The quality of the writing was average, but the story was where he lost me. It was definitely lacking. Smith is just not in the same league as the other Leisure authors such as Gary Braunbeck, T.M. Wright, Tom Piccirilli, Richard Laymon, Tim Lebbon, and Simon Clark. The mythology he created felt forced and unoriginal. This might have made a good 90 page screenplay, but not a 342 page novel. The Hawthorne character was annoying and took away from the heroism of the main protagonist, Mike. I would have liked to see the characters in Dandridge fend for themselves instead of having an outside character help them out -- it was too easy. The dialogue, also, at times, was quite bad. Try reading some of the lines out loud and you'll see what I mean. And speaking of dialogue, I could have done without the talking zombies. (a hint for Mr. Smith -- talking zombies are not scary!) I don't want to sound too negative, because there are a few things here and there that I enjoyed. However, with the predictability of most of the scenes and everything else I mentioned, I cannot recommend this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
