This is a good book, but not a great book. It's easy to sit through and follow. The narrator isn't horrible. And if you are a fan of zombies, then this is an interesting story that sets the stage for the other two hopefully to finish off. I did research on the book and discovered its first in a trilogy, so don't expect to have all your questions answered right off the bat. It can get pretty cheesy at times, but you can tell it's on purpose and meant to lighten the mood. I found myself saying "Did she really just write that?!" a few times during some of the dialog or zombie executions. The couple is believable to an extent, but for the parts that aren't you just don't care because its just a fun little read. So, all my complaints that I could have about it considered, I just don't care. I enjoyed myself, and I think you will too. Just don't expect it to be the most profound writing ever. It's very lighthearted for most of it, to counterbalance some of the deep depressing sections that you have to have in order for there to be any drama in a zombie apocalypse. I recommend this because of it's entertainment value. It's not as depressing as some things (except a few pretty sad moments), but you still get your fill of zombie fun.
This book was an excellent listen. It's easy, and yet it deals with a serious theme. Regardless of where you may stand on the issue of abortion it is an interesting way to begin the dialogue and the book does a good job at remaining neutral. Even still, its a sad commentary on the distance some people may be willing to go to compromise on the issue. I doubt Christians, Atheists, Conservatives, or Liberals would allow this type of future to happen, but it still makes for a good story. I was interested in the universe, and I found the characters all interesting. I would recommend this book as a good book, not great, but good and worth the credits. Pick it up for something that will keep you interested and flex your morality.
I want more of this universe, characters, story. I hadn't been this excited about a book in a long while. I highly recommend to anybody who loves sci-fi and enjoyed the first book. This book particularly kicks it into gear.
