    Good book.

    It was a good, but short book at 90 Nook Tablet pages. The two main characters were very well developed. The pacing was a little off, and it dragged in the middle, but I am glad to have finished. There were a few spelling and grammar issues, but not too much. The strength of this zombie story is that it focused primarily on the characters and their emotional reactions.

    Most zombie genre horror is too focused on the guns & gore. Meanwhile, the scenery and characters end up neglected or unimportant. This book is different, and that is what I liked about it. I recommend it.

    Well written & action packed!

    I liked this story. Being a fan of the genre, I wind up reading a lot of crap tales before stmbling upon one worth reading. This one was worth the read. I enjoyed the relationship between the two main characters and am looking forward to reading the next installment. As a matter of fact, I just bought the next book and will be starting it tonight.

    Reviewed by Cheryl Schopen for Readers' Favorite

    In Zombie War by Jean Booth, Sarah, a nurse in a hospital, witnesses something terrifying as the AIDS vaccine is given to people. What was thought to be a promising cure that could finally end a horrible virus ends up being the cause of an unexpected zombie apocalypse. The world they know is suddenly gone and filled with the undead, who are starving and looking for humans to feast on. Sarah and a small group of survivors try to make a safe home for themselves, but the need for food and other supplies creates difficulty.

    Jean Booth took what could have been a typical zombie novel and turned it into something uniquely entertaining. The walking dead in this book can actually talk, think, and strategize, making them all the more frightening. I will have a hard time getting the images of disturbing scenes that involved so much blood and gore out of my head, which is exactly what I want from a horror story. Not only did I enjoy the violence, but I also found myself caring about some of these characters, which I think is important. A zombie book could be full of action and carnage, but if I don’t care about the people, there’s no point in reading it. So, I give Jean Booth credit for being able to accomplish both. Zombie War is definitely a must-read for any zombie or horror fans. It certainly won’t disappoint. I can’t wait to read more of this brilliant author’s work.

    Sarah is first-hand witness to the mutation of the AIDS vaccine,

    Sarah is first-hand witness to the mutation of the AIDS vaccine, and barely escapes with her life. With her husband, Matt, and two other survivors, she runs from the rapidly-spreading disease and hides out in a home that is easy to defend against all comers. But will it be enough? From what happens to them at the sports store, where they have very little competition in looting for supplies, it doesn’t look promising. But they settle in and wait for whatever comes, safe at least in knowing who they are among themselves.

    But just how much of that supposed knowledge can be trusted?



    This short story is a precursor to “Zombie War: Little Apocalypse on the Prairie”, and is a nice, concise introduction. My favorite thing about this story was how the author seemed a little self-deprecating in her writing. In a couple of places, she wrote something like “just like in the movies” or “like an actor in the zombie movies”. Fun that way.

    Even though my usual method of interaction with zombie stories is usually “Nice. When’s the next commercial?”, this story kept my interest completely. Ms. Booth did a nice job with descriptions and action, keeping the reader running alongside her throughout the entire book. I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series.
