Super fast paced at every chapter pulling you along so you wont want to stop reading; its like you are part of the group.
Strong relatable characters with perfect supporting characters. I thought Natalie and Gary were fab and I so wanted to hit Tyler; what a horrible human being...signs of good writer when it brings out strong emotions of the reader.
Loved the twist on the possible cure being simply herbal, rather than just man-made chemicals good old mother nature!
I would have liked to see a bit more zombie horror action and hardships as well as the fast paced read...but that's just me being a complete zombie gore-aholic.
Fab suspenseful twist at the end but I was disappointed it was finished...I could have kept reading more....sigh...as I was enjoying it so much! I would love a book 2 and see more of Gary, Natalie and Amanda....hint....hint!
Another great book to add to any zombie enthusiast library. Off to collect my zombie survival kit and start prepping.

I really enjoyed the more scientific approach this book took. I believed that the author had done adequate research. Also, there were early questions of right and wrong and the moral complexities that would be involved here, adding some thoughtfulness without being too weighty. And it was a relief to be able to relate to the characters of Simon, Gary, and Natalie especially. The fact that the book is broken up by chapters with the “bad guy’s” perspective is interesting too, and these parts kept the tension going while also giving the reader insight the “good guys” didn’t have as they tried to stop the spread of the virus.
There were a few scenes that felt a bit forced, such as when Simon and Gary encounter rednecks and Simon kills them…which just kind of happens and they never look back. Also, the long ago college love-triangle element I didn’t think needed to be there at all, and sudden discussions about it in the midst of serious situations didn’t fit very well.
BUT, overall, I liked the pacing, the character development, and the way the story unfolded. The zombies were believable without being outlandish, and the gore elements were humanized so that this wasn’t just some fun romp of killing the undead.
