If you do not already know this, this is a zombies on a submarine story, makes you think of Snakes on a Plane, right? Also the planet earth has finall..Show More »y been decimated by humans in every imaginable way. Z-Boat had the backbone to be really entertaining and a standalone in the genre.
However, it did not come off that way to me. Starting out very slow with character development that I found myself not caring about after awhile. The plot too was very slow to develop into something that was lackluster and left me with a melancholy taste in my mouth. I kept telling myself that it will get better, there will be action, there will be zombies (the title promised it), there will be horror. Well there was some but only after trudging through more than half and realistically, sorry didn't actually keep track, three quarters of the story was gone.
I wish there was more emphasis on the destruction of the world. More infected occurrences. More action, more intensity. If you are looking for something to fill your undead craving Z-Boat might quench it. I think Robb has promise and will be looking for more from her.
