I have to say that like other reviewers I almost passed up this book and even after I downloaded it I was reluctant to read it. But this book blew me away!!!
First off, the writing was phenomenal and the characters were brilliant. The author actually manages to combine lush imagery, with hilarious and horrifying events and simultaneously creates a set of characters that you can relate to, for a fabulously entertaining, action packed, and heart warming story.
I know what your thinking, there's no way she manages to mix those three genres together in a story about the zombie apocalypse. Well I'm here to tell you that she not only manages it, she does a bloody (forgive my pun) good job at it.
Even if your apprehensive about the title, storyline, or genre, I suggest trying this book. Bored and looking for something new? This is really something you should give a chance. Anyone from 16 to 46 will find this a great read. As a 21 year old I found myself agreeing with the main characters choices and thoughts about her fellow survivors, her need to find her brother, and her outlook on zombie fighting. And while I thought this storyline would be overdone, the author has a fresh new take on it and manages a few surprises.
Take my advice and try it out! It has something for everyone and will pull you into a new and exciting world!
