In general the book is enjoyable action fare, though the world-building and characters really don't hold up to scrutiny and the holes can become rather annoying if you stop to think about them. My advice is don't. It's a quick and entertaining easy reading without too much depth, don't expect more and you won't be disappointed.
The two areas that irritated me were the way in which everyone in this book is pretty much incompetent, except for the central family, and I mean truly, Darwin Award incompetents, and that goes for everyone in a position of authority.
But the most annoying single feature is the women. There are technically three in the central family, though the mother is practically invisible she gets so little page space. The daughters, are allegedly 13 and 15, which is the most annoying feature, because it's what breaks the story the worst.
We are expected to believe that a 13 year old girl is able to deal with killing 'zombies' (technically infected humans) with absolutely no problems, and less time spent dealing with her emotional response than combat veterans who are described as functional sociopaths. We are also expected to accept that she is the size and strength of an average adult male. She has the unarmed combat skills to act and react in close combat without hesitation and is an ace shot. Further she apparently has sufficient training to teach a US special forces soldier about clearing an enclosed area, in this case a ship.Read more ›
Do the star "Hotties" have to be 13 and 15 though? 17 or 18 would have been more believable and remove the somewhat suspect nature of Mr RIngo's apparent interest in young women.
With solid lead charectors and emphatic storylines Ringo leads us into a world collapsing around our heads where being able switch mental gears, quickly, keeps you alive.
A serious entry in the zombie genre, with a realism that doesn't come along too often! Well worth the investment in time to get involved with the series
What happened to Steve's brother, Tom?
Exciting and action-packed - roll on book 2.
