Now let me just state that I HATE zombie romps. I never watch the films & avoid the books like the plague. I only read this book because it was free (sorry, Dean) BUT I was pleasantly surprised. Ignoring the zombification of the population, there was an excellent plot, deftly written. Also, the cause of the zombie like plague was ingenuitive (I know it's not a real word, but give me a break, I'm not an author!). Instead of the usual "oh it's a virus" with no explanation, Dean Crawford came up with the idea of a fungus being the root of it all & offered a detailed description of it & how it worked. Brilliant!
I don't want my loathing of zombies to detract from the main plot, which isn't overly original (sorry again, Dean), but it is solid and the characters are believable. This book kept me up late as I couldn't put it down sometimes!
All in all a good read.
