The protagonist, Jimmy, lives with his grandma in the run-down part of a small town and he's initially the relatable unpopular guy who spends time reading books and watching tv shows.. his ordinary life changes when a series of actions lead him to meeting a talkative, charming girl named Peaches... coincidentally, the apocalypse strikes soon after.
The narration flowed quickly and I found myself laughing out loud at the dialogues and Jimmy 's internal reasoning several times!!
I loved how the zombie horror element didn't come across as strongly as other novels. In fact, I'm a bit of a scaredy cat so it was a relief that the author went easy on the suspense. There are many original plot twists and the characters are all very endearing!!
The story begins with Jimmy and his grandmother, the owners of a small bookshop in the not so desirable part of town. Across the road is the mini mart where Jimmy goes for lunch most days, and where he sees the local druggie begging for money.
One night when he cannot sleep, hearing noises from outside he sees an argument going on and when he ventures outside meets a girl called Peaches, prostitute she maybe but virgin Jimmy doesn't realise.
His grandmother passes out and appears to be in a coma, most of town appears to have gone the same way, when the local policeman Robinson arrives, around the same time as Peaches appears the action begins, we have a zombie apocalypse beginning
The book is free and is a good set up for the next in the series, ending like a cliff hanger from the walking dead.
Will I buy the next one probably, i have a few more books on my kindle ready to read then I will
I had no choice but to devour every last page.
Well written and slightly different to to average zombie Novel.
My only criticism is that it isn't longer. But will now immediately by the next in the series.
