Top customer reviews
The final third for me was less well-crafted than the first two-thirds - but a stellar read nonetheless.
I didn't really know what this story was going to be about, just got it as it was highly recommended by a YouTube blogger. Was pleasantly surprised to find out that it is a post apocalyptic zombie story, as I love that kind of thing, though I've never read it, only watched zombie movies and tv dramas. The beginning was the best bit, because if you didn't know the kids were zombies it really got you going. Then once you knew they were zombies it just panned out into a fairly typical zombie story. But still, a good read.
Despite this, the story holds up brilliantly, and concludes very satisfactorily.
