A DUCK IS A DUCK I got this because it was on sale and I was told it was different. Demers, changes some of the minor rules involving Zombies, but..Show More » they are so minor as to not warrant mentioning. The main character is kind of a loser who is set straight by the prepper he meets. He is not a super military expert and he does not travel across the state as in most of these stories, but nothing really happens, it is all the same. If you have read one Zombie book, you have read this one. You want different, get Cattle. It is not a bad book, it just is not unique.
If you’re a big Zombie fan I think you’re going to like this series and this story as a whole. Its FULL of zombie action and great writing which real..Show More »ly connects you and makes you feel like you’re part of the action, so it might be best not to eat on a full stomach. The characters continue their story, along with a few new additions, and no one is safe (except Christian because he’s writing the story) and the body count, both dead and undead, piles up fast.
I really wanted to rate this higher, but there was one big issue I had. I like where the overall story is going but for most of this book I kept asking myself “where is THIS BOOK going?” For long stretches I felt like the book was just a story of a group of survivors and we would never find out how Christian ended up on the roof (we still don’t know) which frustrated me quite a bit. However, the final 20% of the book really wrapped up the current action nicely and set the stage for going forward and really got me interested to read the next in the series so take my rating with a grain of salt as cliffhangers/continuances are one of my pet peves. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long for the next one!
Mr. Story does a good job with narration making the characters really come alive.
