Product Description

*** Kindle price reduced!!! ***

Zombies and 2012 all in one book!

As humankind races headlong towards possibly the most infamous date in recent history, a resurgence of the H1N1 flu virus begins to take a foothold around the world.

Government agencies form partnerships with the private sector to begin mass production of the life-saving vaccines.

However, something strange begins to happen to the people that were vaccinated around the winter solstice of 2012.

The treated individuals do not get any better. In fact, they begin dying in massive numbers...only to return as the living dead!

2.0 out of 5 stars Work in progress........... 20 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Whilst I did finish this, it was a bit of a chore and would find it difficult to recommend this to others.

The main reason I think (for me) is it reads as though written perhaps by a young person or teenager (as others have mentioned) not just because of the grammar and spelling, but for many reasons besides, such as the continual use of over descriptive words or perhaps I should say mis-use and mis-placed use of over descriptive words. There are also nonsensical statement aplenty, with one I remember being "he never once broke eye contact with the two men" he must have done when he looked from the first man to the second man and vice versa and another scene where a zombie is standing on it's feet having a tug o' war with tethers held by multiple captors, but it then states that upon closer inspection its broken femur is sticking out of its thigh.

Another hint at this being a young author was the juvenile way the the characters put themselves into silly and unbelievable situations, mostly in order for the author to kill them off for a shock (which wasn't a shock, because they were unbelievable situation and therefore the deaths became expected).
Difficult to give examples without spoiling it, but in one scenario it states, the group doesn't have a 4x4 (why....?? just steal one parked up or from a dealer) and then can't find any gas/petrol (why.....?? just steal some from stationary cars...... one's a veteran marine or some such for goodness sake) so they pull into a gas/petrol station (why...?? no electric to pump it) and because they are 'exhausted'.... (why...?? they weren't ALL driving)they fail to check for

3.0 out of 5 stars Z1N1 1 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This was a very cheap book at the Kindle store.

I can only describe it as okay.

The story was okay but the editing wasn't great. It was like adjective city. I got fed up of it towards the end, which is a shame because the story wasn't bad. Not the most original zombie book but it wasn't the worst one I've ever read.

I think some points have been well made by other reviewers, but one example that really bugged me was towards the end of the book, at around 91% complete on my Kindle.
In just 2 pages, Obadiah was referred to as "old man" 7 (yes 7!) times. Along with the term "elder man" once.
Obadiah was old, I got that the first time it was mentioned. I didn't need to be told a further 6 times. Most of the characters were frequently referred to as "young, "old", "lovely", etc and it got really annoying.
James was constantly referred to as "the old marine".

I am not an English language nut and I normally overlook stuff like that but it was hard to ignore it throughout the book.

But I paid a tiny sum for it so I guess I can't complain too much.

From start to finish I loved this book, i have already read it twice and it wont be the last time! although does make you a little bit concerned about how quickly humanity really would go down hill in this situation! (even more worrying how a lot of this has started happening already! lol)

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombies, Zombies !!!!! 20 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really loved this book, grabs you by the throat ( if you pardon the pun) from page 1 & doesn't let go. There is enough detail to get your teeth into & leaves you gasping for air on a cliffhanger at the end. Hopefully not too long before the next book, can highly recommend to anyone who loves apocalyptic fiction with an unhealthy dose of zombies :-)

I lost track of things in this book not into medical reasoning behind zombie books seemed to be the the biggest part.
