This is a wonderful zombie/military novel! Kristopher's invigorating prose and storytelling abilities blew me away as I read. He's taken a mythical concept and created an extremely scary novel intertwining real world current events with the zombie apocalypse. As scary as it might be, his explanations actually make a lot of sense, especially in light of the many political cover-ups and the like that take place all over the world. I was fascinated as I read, the wheels of my mind and imagination working constantly to process the wonderful images, explanations, and concepts presented throughout this fictional piece.
Although there are many characters introduced throughout the novel, I found that I was able to connect with all of them on some level. Truth be told, I struggled to keep some of them straight in the beginning as they are introduced rapidly at one point, but Kristopher does a phenomenal job making them well rounded characters and delving into their private lives, even though the story is told through the eyes of the main character.
I also really enjoyed the tone of the novel. It is realistic and poignant with an ending that I found fit the novel perfectly as it stays true to the tone and mood Kristopher sets to keep it all believable. Four stars
