Overview

Ted lives in a world of crumbling asphalt. A world where trees have begun to sprout in the middle of suburban driveways and sidewalks.
Ted lives in a world of peeling paint and grimy windows, of rusting cars and tall grass. Where perfectly trimmed lawns once were, nature is reclaiming what is rightfully hers. In time, this suburban ghost town will again become a forest that may stand for a thousand years. It is already clear to see how little man has left to show for himself. We barely scratched the surface.
Ted is the only person living in his world of desolation. Ted is the unchallenged ruler of his domain. He roams the streets of his small town like a living god. He goes where he wants, he does what he wants and he takes what he wants. There is no one to tell him otherwise.
All of this freedom comes at a heavy price, however. Ted lives in a world of infinite loneliness. In the beginning, the novelty of his situation held a certain fascination. He had a chance to discover his town as no one else ever had. Some things he found were amazing; some were not pleasant to see. Some were downright horrifying, but he saw them all nonetheless. But without someone else to share in this discovery, it was all meaningless.
Ted has not heard another human voice in over a year. At this point, he longs to find any other human. He would welcome the arrival of even an enemy, determined to do him harm. None has come.
Ted's situation would be enough to drive almost anyone insane. But it is made immeasurably worse by one simple fact:

Ted is not alone.

    I read this book in one sitting so it does hold  your attention

    I read this book in one sitting so it does hold  your attention and moves at a good pace. Ted Lives is appropriate
     for young adults. It does have flesh eatting zombies so it would probably be inappropriate for younger children.
    I hope to see some sequels to this first book. The ending sets you up nicely for them.  I am a huge fan of the Jack
     Reacher books by Lee Child and the author gives you some detail about the weaponry used in the story but not
     quite as in depth as Mr. Child which I find educational and interesting. This is a good read for adults and probably
    a very good read for young adults.
