I'm not sure why this book has received such good reviews. The writing is only okay. The great relationship between two of the main characters does not seem close and funny and loving as the writers intends, but forced, and the humor is lacking. And why would any author include so many characters that other characters within your book find annoying? If you find them annoying, and your characters find them annoying, don't you think the readers will too? It's quite a turnoff to read about people that I wouldn't like or couldn't identify with in real life. While I wanted to follow the storyline and keep reading to see where it ended up, I stopped reading halfway through the book. I just couldn't take any more.

Once again reading reviews to help select a book has let me down! This book is long- over 1200 pages. However much of that is more like back drop. In fact, there is close to 400 on the people and company that make the virus without really putting anything 'scientific' regarding the vaccine- just page after page of charactors chit-chatting, eating, etc. Once in a while one of.them 'loads data onto a spreadsheet'...I seriously don't understand how so many pages can be devoted to nothing specific- so much so that you do not have any idea what these guys do, especially the ahole boss.

Good long read however approximately 500 pages are filled with background info and NO Zombie activity. Too many characters and switching back and forth between them and locales. Characters could be developed more. Good storyline with a unique ending.

Seriously, 600 pages till we encounter a zombie? For a zombie book thats pretty lame. Hard to like any of the characters. Difficult to get through. One half star.

FOUND THE FIRST 60 ODD PAGES INTERSTING-THE REMAINING SECTIONS WERE FILLED WITH TWO MUCH BORING DETAILS. THE HUMAN ELEMENT BECAME SECONDARY.

Poorly written sorely in need of a good editor. The story line holds promise but the writing could not pull it off.

The story was good, however, i have never struggled so hard to read something that appears to be written by someone in a class for Writing 101 . So many unnecessary, repetitve, redundant adjectives. This was most.difficult to get through, and it could have had so much promise.

I did like the overall "scope" of this book, where everything did not "break loose" on page 1, however, I found the main characters, and especially the secondary characters to be rather one-dimensional. Never felt any strong empathy for any of the people in the story.

The beginning of ths book was fine. Zombies, survivors, a big barn, and a farmer named Kevin. If the author would have continued THIS story, I would have purchased the book.

I really enjoyed this book. 1200 pages of classic zombie fiction. My only criticism is that the author droned on in a couple of places but otherwise great read!!!

This piece was written by a naughty eighth grader while bored in math class.
