The characters are likeable, decently written and relateable. I would say this is the case for both good and bad. Whether you agree with a characters actions or not, you can see and understand how they end up at those actions and motivations, through their growth over the course of the arc. Despite the overall dark tone of the book, there are moments of levity or positivity that are well placed and a welcome moments break from the overall gritty feel.
I managed to finish in about 5-6 hours and I consider myself a decently paced reader, for fans of the genre I would certainly recommend it, even with the few spelling mistakes and missing words littered throughout. I've already purchased part two of the series, mainly due to a burning desire to see what happens next to a cast of characters I managed to grow quite attached to.
But I really enjoyed the book.
To be honest I nearly gave up on the book at one stage for being just too damn grim. I think the author tried to paint as real a picture as he thought he could. His ultra depressing supposition for the apocalypse is probably - sadly - accurate. Some of the situations rendered within the opening few chapters of the book are downright repellent and I hope that if it were to come to it that people would be a hell of a lot more honorable than they are within the pages of this book. They made uncomfortable reading and I very nearly gave up on it.
But. The characters are what keep this book alive, for me. They are consistent: some grow, some diminish but they stay true to themselves and this keeps everything pretty real. He sometimes drops the baton on plot but you get whisked along on the magic carpet ride so it's easy to forgive. I found myself rooting for them all the time and my only gripe would be one of the group is just too much of a stereotype, drawn with too wide a brush and the character has a detrimental effect to the book. There is enough peril in it without this character adding to it. The other downside is that this book owes a great debt to The Walking Dead - it just does. I don't mind that it stands on it's shoulders because it does it well.
As some reviewers have said there are typos and some other issues but for a self published novel at £0.99 no one should be complaining. I will be buying the next because I am intrigued at what will happen next.
