    Five days ago a rash of bizarre murders swept the country. Senseless. Brutal. Seemingly unconnected. A cop walked into a nursing home and unloaded his weapons on elderly and staff alike. A mass of school shootings. Prison riots of unprecedented brutality. Mind-boggling acts of violence in every state. Four Days Ago the murders increased ten-fold. Three days ago the President addressed the nation and begged for calm and peace. Two days ago the killers began to mobilize. Yesterday all the power went out. Tonight....

    Story

    This book is so similar in its basic idea to Hater by David Moody that I have a hard time believing it was not inspired by it. In both a portion of the population is overtaken by irrational, uncontrollable hatred toward the rest of the population and the need to destroy them. In both those full of hate can instantly tell on sight who the enemy is but the normal people cannot. A big difference though is that in Hater, we do not find out what caused it, and Hater is far more an examination of the crazy, irrational, zombie-like nature of divisive, pointless hatred. This is more of a survival story and we do find out what caused the division. So in terms of plot there is not a huge similarity ( aside from one scene that is nearly identical), but the premise is very similar.

    This is not a criticism. It follows some similarities as a zombie survival story, but with the interesting twist that the people who are in the role of a zombie are not dead and retain their intellect. It is action packed and I felt for the characters and thought it was fairly well paced. The narrator does a great job too.
