Ok, it starts out very slow, and I almost gave it up. If you can get past all the open deep political junk the book turns into something you will have a hard time putting down. I loved it, another one of his books is referenced heavy in this one, but you don't have to know it to enjoy this book.
Read PPZ. And it is BAD. It’s like someone just tossed in some Hollywood without thinking it through or anything.
I never finished the book, I got so annoyed about half way that I just up and quit. The part that bothered me is that "according to the story" zombies have been around for years and years. I think 20 years or something. OK no problems with that.
But each time they attack its like, "Gosh! What are these then?" Early in the book they come crashing through a large glass window. Eat half the dinner party, and then our heroines pull out there Ninja skills and kick butt.
I have no issue with woman being able to fight. I thought that was cool. It’s the fact that they all trained to be Ninjas, have katanas, and uses throwing starts. Their marshal art skills. The add in parts are just poorly thought out.
I don't see why he didn't just do a little research into the fighting styles of the times. What weapons would one find in England? If their father was in the military, why didn't they have a more military (English) training?
Also WHY did everyone seem to forget the zombies where out there and go for a nice walk in the dark woods? Just avoid this book at all costs! And read World War Z. At least that one follows a more "realistic" approach.
It's the basics - told in an easy to understand format. Lot's of good basic ideas and I would recomend to anyone from highschool to 35yrs.
I listen to this book once on month - great to listen to with easy to understand examples.
