I don't know what the blurb was talking about building a new world. These are 5 dumb boys, no girls. No building anything going on. Since they were kids, they've accepted Billy as their leader, but the thing is, he sucks at it. He is a dithering moralist, but may be just a peg above the IQ of the others, except Harley, he's cool. If you like screaming in your head at the stupid things the characters do, or how some things don't make sense, this book is for you. At one point, a zombie kills someone, only they don't know its a zombie yet. So its actually a murder scene. Billy feels so sad he doesn't just want to leave the body, but bring it back with them to town to the sheriff. I think the author and his fictional character must be the only two people in the world who think its ok to remove the dead body from a murder scene. But his group revolt and lay the smack down on him when he comes up with yet again another stupid idea later on; capturing a zombie (He _still_ doesn't know its a zombie)
I gave three stars, story is redeeming, its interesting and not bad. Very short! Hardly worth the $ if I didn't get it on sale. I invested in the second book. Story is alright. Narration is ok too, maybe better than, like almost 4 stars. Just one thing; whenever they argue, everyone gets this whiny exasperated voice like small children.
