Within seconds, normally rational, self-controlled people become frenzied killers. Christened "Haters" by the media, the attackers strike without warning, killing all who cross their path. People are afraid to go to work, afraid to leave their homes, afraid that at any moment their friends or family could turn on them. In the face of this mindless terror, Danny McCoyne must secure his family, seek shelter, and watch as the world falls apart. "Attack first, ask questions later" becomes the order of the day.

Read this if you ever want to know what Milton Waddams (the guy with the stapler in "Office Space") would do if put into a life or death, end of the world situation. Nothing, lock himself in a house and pray noone look him in the eye, and wait for the mob to kill him and his family. I haven't finished the book, don't know if I will.

The infection / parasites should have been more simple for belief. A little to complex for my tastes. The story dragged, i continually thought it would get moving and it would just drag. Through narration they tried to compenstate, but it seemed more distracting to me.

Not sure if I will go for the next book.

The end begins with a viral outbreak unlike anything mankind has ever encountered before. The infected are subject to delirium, fever, a dramatic increase in violent behavior, and a one-hundred percent mortality rate. Death. But it doesn't end there. The victims return from death to walk the earth. When a massive military operation fails to contain the plague of the living dead it escalates into a global pandemic.

If you can get past his ignorance of the military the book is great. Story line is one of my favorites. After reading the first book, i had to get the second. I hope the third one will be released.

God rest Z's sole.

Francis Sherman and Anna Demilio want only a vaccine, but to find it, they must cross a countryside in ruins, dodging not only the infected, but also the lawless living. The bulk of the storm has passed over the world, leaving echoing thunder and softly drifting ashes. But for the survivors, the peril remains, and the search for a cure is just beginning.

I love the genre so I managed to get through it. pretty good storyline, but the diary like flow was distracting and mono-tone. It also ended two quickly, almost as if the author lost interest halfway through a book.
