    In reading The Phoenix Gene Mr. Webb seems to have captured the feelings and isolation of the small town where the book takes place. The book is a little fast paced and he could have easily added another 10k or 15k words. At the rate the zombies were killing people off it appears the population of the world would not last long. The fact that the characters did not hide out in a mall was nice. I really enjoyed how several of them managed to survive. I don't want to ruin anything for those of you that have not read the book yet. His dialogue was a little flat and predictable. Overall a nice read

    I just finished reading The Phoenix Gene by Terry Webb. It was a great book. The way he described the zombies was great. I really enjoyed reading about how the virus started. The book is fast paced and full of action. I know that many females don't read this type of book because they seem to be full of nothing but gore. This book has some gore, but not so much as to make you put the book down.
