Bought this on a whim and extremely glad I did. Believable plot that zips along. Characters you actually care about and a surprising but very credible villain. The author is not afraid of exploring the stereotypes of gender in an effort to submerge us into an apocalyptic world. I always admire a fearless writer. Really well done.

The Apocalypse is a book not without its flaws, particularly in the editing department, which is why I have given this 4 stars. In terms of story, characters, pacing and so on I would certainly recommend. Some aspects may be jarring to those who can't detach themselves from their modern sensibilities and immerse themselves in a world where society collapses. There are moments or characters that will make you uncomfortable, but in my view this is a good thing, part of the allure of apocalypse scenarios is to explore the human mind and the aftermath of things such as socio-economic status, race or gender in a world totally different from our own, alongside the effects of former lives and how they shape people during the downfall.

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.

This isn't a bad read. However, it really needed a better editor to catch the early mistakes. One of the characters seems to start in California but suddenly in New Jersey/New York area. Very disorienting for the reader but you soon forgive the misstep. There are a few words that must have auto corrected wrong.

But I really enjoyed the book.

Bought this on a whim - as it came up as a recommendation on Amazon - and I thought this was great. This isn't high art or anything, this is a rollercoaster ride across America weaving the tales of some disparate individuals together for a thrilling climax...or collection of them.

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.

There is a long list of criteria that a ZA book needs to fulfill to be what i consider to be a great read. The Apocalypse, in my humble opinion hits every target to almost perfection. From beginning to end, the story flowed, with equal amounts of chaos, hopelessness, and horror. With incredible characters, and realistic situations, and reactions. I was only saddened by the warning the author felt he needed to offer, because he had the audacity to include an evil character who was black. Can i suggest anyone who deemed the author racist, go and stand on a rail track and do the world a favour. The book is briliant in everyway.

I love a good zombie novel. Actually anything remotely about zombies. Just when I thought every story had been done I found this. One of the best books I have read in a while. And I read a lot! I'm really hoping that another comes out soon! I want to know what happens to Ram!

really enjoyed the book and all its characters, cracking setpieces throughout the book and it was just the right length. the only thing that annoyed me, like most of the ebooks on amazon was the typos and because the story was jumping from group to group with every chapter the writer misplaced a few names which should have been in one of the other groups. this was a little off putting but it didnt take me long to get over it and by the end i was very glad that i stuck with it. i hope my next book choice is as good as this. a genuine thrill.
