We don't want no zombies nobody sent! Only in Chicago would the zombie apocalypse be just another excuse
for political corruption and chicaniery. Mr. Kenemore has captured the character of Chicago in a most uncanny way. Both zombie fans and native Chicagoans will laugh out loud, as thinly vailed true life local characters alternate between perpetrating skulduggery and becoming zombie lunches. Scarry and funny, this book packs more of a punch then more serious social criticisms. It's fiction of course. The zombie apocalypse could never occur in Chicago as the zombies wouldn't be safe there.

Not going to lie, it could have been better... But it was okay.
Overall the writing was decent and the changing first person story line perspective sort of helped to keep it more interesting and well paced.
However, the characters were a little too tied together in this story. The amazing and uneventful coincidences (which were abundant)
didn't really help with the entertainment value. I would have probably enjoyed better zombie explanations and more suspenseful
encounters (with the living and undead). And even though there was action and close calls, somehow it always seemed like everything
was going to be a-okay in the end.
As far as zombie novels go, this one is pretty decent though. If you are into a quick, moderately entertaining read, then I wouldn't
totally disregard this one.
