generic z novel
on 14 August 2013
I found this novel frustrating. The plot is formulaic. The long journey to find loves ones, set piece battles, bad guys, scavenging - are the elements of many other zombie novels. I just felt like I had read this before.
There were some holes in the plot that did not make sense to me at all but if I describe them it will give the story away. I will just say that I can't see the timeline of the story working at all.
On the plus side - there are many swipes at corporate greed and our focus on the mundane aspects of our lives. These sections are good as the break away from the otherwise generic zombie survival themes.
