Somewhat discombobulated story but a relatively well thought our universe...it's almost as if the author thought out an interesting world and then contrived ways to get his characters into the right place to view it.
Classic Ringo...being Ringo...with some help from the other guy I'm sure. As a former paratrooper I love almost anything Ringo writes because it reminds me of the conversations an attitudes I shared during my late teens/early 20's at Fort Bragg (when I wasn't deployed of course). Even though this was co-written it comes across as classic Ringo and the authors obvious knowledge and love of the canal zone added a neat travelog quality. Not as tightly written as some of the other stories in this series but I love a story where the right kind of soldier gets to lead the good fight! The non-human characters were interesting as well...especially with the way that the authors breathed a little...er humanity...into them.
I really wanted to like this book...what a great title after all...but I just couldn't get past the characters referring to the zombies as bees. Beyond that the survivors seemed to spend more time fighting each other than they did fighting the undead. I generally like the genre, but if there was anything positive worth mentioning I must have daydreamed through it...it just didn't capture my attention.
Good municipal survival story. Picture the love child of Alas Babylon, the Jericho TV show and the Tom Hanks movie Cast Away...how's that for mixing my entertainment metaphors?
I purchased this book to give me a jump start for a class in military history I was struggling in. I found it to be a good listen, historically accurate, and a key factor in the "A" I received. A great head start read for anyone interested in learning more about Ancient Warfare.
Not great literature but a whimsical tale for some light reading....er listening. Who knew...post apocalyptic Go-Go Girls!
Everything I liked from Stephen King's The Stand...but not a knock off.
The humanity of the characters...in particular the character Swan and her wrestler caretaker.
A book I enjoyed reading so much I decided to listen to it as well...about 15 years later. A comfortable old friend to hang out with.
Well thought out universe with realistic sociological, economic an scientific features. Sure to be enjoyed by all but the most speckle-shy!
Cool new idea
Neat idea for a type of superhuman and the corruption that power creates within their souls.
Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land
Ghost narrator, fascinating setting and witty dialog...all with that obscure Vonnegut way of making you feel like you're watching the burning of Dresden with the author.
Well written post apocalyptic story taking place in a familiar setting. I'd just returned from a trip to Chicago when I read this and the picture in my mind's eye matched my memory.
