    In this wry take on the post-apocalyptic horror novel, a pandemic has devastated the planet. The plague has sorted humanity into two types: the uninfected and the infected, the living and the living dead. Now the plague is receding, and Americans are busy rebuildĀ­ing civilization under orders from the provisional governĀ­ment based in Buffalo. Their top mission: the resettlement of Manhattan.

    Annie says: "Tomorrow needs a marketing rollout."
    "It's amazing that this even got published!"

    What disappointed you about Zone One?

    Ever hold a conversation with someone that you felt wanted you to think of them as being super smart. well this book was written by that person. It was so difficult to follow, mostly because I needed a dictionary to get an understanding of every word. And, I'm no idiot. The verbiage was overly complex. So much so, that I at times found myself laughing aloud at how ridiculously difficult the phrases were to understand.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have written it so that even people with


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Beresford Bennett?

    My nine year old reads with a more natural flow than the narrator of this book.
