I first became aware of this author via his hilarious blog The Zombie Wilson Diaries about a man on a deserted island with a zombie girl. When I ordered this book I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm glad I took a chance. This book is not like other zombie novels where the characters are thrown right into the action. There is a slow build up to chaos that takes its time in introducing us to the main characters. Don't get me wrong, there is action and scares galore even in the beginning of the book so it is never boring. The characters make this book. They are an interesting mix of the weird (A sword wielding serial killer), a lazy drug dealer, and a newspaper reporter. They are all unique. I've never read anything quite like this before. I buy all things zombie and this is one of the best books in the genre. Oh the book screams for a sequel and I hope Timothy W. Long has one in the works. -Ed

I'll admit, I'm the last person in the world you would think would pick up a zombie book. It has just never been my cup of tea. I dont know what compelled me to get this one, but boy am i glad I did. This book had me laughing and crying from beginning to end. I love the charcaters more than anything and was sad to see some go. I was screaming in my head "run faster!!!!" as the hoarde appoarched. Definately going to get my hands on Among the Dead. I've always been a vampire kind of girl ((real vampires, not tgat piece of dog crap Twilight)) but this book made me see zombies in a different way. So glad i picked it up. You wont be disappointed. Trust me.

I liked this book especially for being free, which to be honest is the only reason i got it. But after reading it im looking forward to Among the Dead. It had a good story and characters had depth the only down side to that was that you get into it and its time to wait for Among the Dead, I would recommend it though it was a good read.

An unusual way to experience zombies!! The characters are so vivid. I was a little paranoid for awhile after reading. I came across this by accident, but I'm am going to read all I can by this author. This book would be very interesting for a book club discussion.

I somehow managed to find this a few days ago on the free list and figured I didn't have anything to lose. I didn't expect much, but got way more than I bargained for. Not since "World War Z" have I found a zombie novel I could get in to. The minute the sequel comes out I'll be all over it!

Very slow in places, but a great book none the less

Although the premise of this book really isn't anything we haven't seen before, i did really enjoy this book. It is fast-paced and at times very hard to put down. The characters are intriguing and full of depth. I would definitely recommend it and I'm looking forward to seeing how their story continues.

This book is very action packed and fast moving! It reminded me of the Resident Evil movies but better. The story is told by different people experiencing the same event in different parts of town. Each is in a different circumstance. It is well written and keeps you on your toes. I liked the fact that the characters for the most part are smart. I didn't find myself thinking why did that character do that. So far this is the best zombie book I have ever read. I can not wait for the next one

An insight into the lives of very different people and the challenges they face when a zombie outbreak begins to occur and the telling of their meeting. I was hooked and cant wait for the sequel.

I absolutly loveed this book. Its exciting. It has a lotta gore, zombies in it. It does use graphic language though. The ending was sad in my opinion :((

This was a very interesting and well written book. It built up slowly the first hundred pages with segments on the five main characters from when the infection started. You really get to know them (I could have wished Grinder and Lesters bits were shorter). When things really get rolling the action is great keeping you flipping pages to see what happens next. There is plenty of fighting, escaping, killing, gore, as well as drug use and some sex- not for teen readers! I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series. A great read just under 300 pages and the quality is right up there with Mark Tufo and Steve Wands!

I was so surprised at how much i enjoyed this book! It captures your attention right off the bat. It has a lot of everything... gore, sex, drugs, inspiration. The list is endless. Not to mention the way he personalizes even the zombies. Def a good read!
