Obviously, I have to compare it to Feed, the first book in the series. Feed comes out ahead simply because the character Georgia is more compelling than her brother. Buffey is also a very strong character, so the second book loses a bit in having to make up for their loss.
I think they did a great job with accents and also with injecting emotion into the characters.
In dealing with reactions to death of loved ones there were some emotional moments. I think those were handled well; they were powerful but not overdone.
It was a fun adventure that kept moving at a good pace. Compelling characters and an interesting story.
I liked the adherence to some traditional zombie lore and approaching it from the angle of the characters being journalists. Also, the back-story about the cause of the outbreak, I though,t was not only interesting but plausible within the frame of the story and unique.
Is it my favorite or my least favorite? I'm not really sure. I'm not going to give details, but there's a particular scene that takes place in the van toward the end...
Laughter, sadness, anger. There were a number of powerful moments.
Better voice acting. The narration from the point of view of the protagonist is fine, but all of the supporting characters are horribly voiced. The main character's boss sounded like a Muppet and the female character, Peabody, sounded like Barney Fife. The rest had overdone stereotypical bad accents.
I haven't made it to the ending. I am forcing my way through it so far. I don't know if I'll make it all the way.
The story itself seems a little thin, but not bad. The only complaint I really have about the story itself is that the 7 year old children seem to talk more like they are about 3.
