4.0 out of 5 stars An ordinary, thoughtful apocalypse, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zone One (Kindle Edition)
I went into this book without much prejudice - I've never read or watched much Zombie stuff and as a genre it never really interested me. However on the strength of it appearing on many top ten lists and appearing to have a more thoughtful bent I decided to give it a go.

I wasn't disappointed - it was definitely a more cerebral book, not oriented to frenzied action and guts, but more the mundane nature of surviving a zombie apocalypse and taking a sanguine view of what it takes emotionally to survive and even thrive in such a scenario. It doesn't give in much to florid writing so isn't too literary, but as a book it's more about the characters journey than a plot per se.

The book wanders through many different variations of how people live - sole survivalists, impromptu communes, near governmental efforts like the Zone One of the books title - and each are shown for their strengths and weaknesses, most of which come from those who run them rather than their physical set up. It's clearly spending time exploring how people survive under an extreme of constant stress and uncertainty.

This one has stuck with me for some reason, so if you are not usually a zombie fan, but like something to get you thinking, this is a great book.
