A refreshing take on a familiar genre.
on 24 July 2014
Although on the surface this seems to be just another zombie apocalypse story, it has a quality that sets it apart from others in the genre.
It is charmingly told from the perspective of a typical "modern day girl", in whom many of us will instantly recognise the traits of our friends, sisters or co-workers. Through the eyes of an average person, rather than the usual gun-slinging super-human hero commonly found in this genre, the tale becomes more relatable to an audience who might not usually find entertainment in zombie fiction. The descriptions of characters and settings are refreshingly unromanticised, adding to the no-nonsense, down-to-earth tone of the book.
There are a few inaccurate embellishments made on the factual basis of the story. However, if you are willing to suspend your disbelief, you will find an entertaining and engaging read in this book.
