    Story
    (3797)

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Not that I didn't love the book. I really did. Unfortunately I didn't realize that it was abridged. I suppose that is my own fault, but if you are thinking of buying be sure you know that your only buying about half of the book.

    Feeling robbed,
    Holly

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    Hugh says: "Accidentally Good"
    "Complete crap with flickers of competence"
    Overall

    Apparently only Christians are smart enough to survive and every single person who is not a Christian is a sexually perverted marauder/ looter. That is when the story is moving forward at all, mostly it's just a meticulous list of gear. By the way is there anything that "the group" has need of. I guess it's nice to have everything. Given the preachy stance of the book it should be listed in the religious section.

    I gave it one star because I couldn't give it less. I'd not recommend this book to anyone.

    Descending into darkness, about to be overwhelmed by evil, those people still free are powerless to stop the coming dawn of a savage new world, while Richard faces the guilt of knowing that he must let it happen. Alone, he must bear the weight of a sin he dare not confess to the one person he loves...and has lost.

    Randall says: "ridiculously repetitive and predictive"
    "I'm crushed"
    Overall

    I don't usually write reviews however after having just finished the book I'm reeling with emotion. (the sign of a good tale). I have to warn you that even though you get the "happy ending" you are left with a since of profound sadness (or at least I was).
