Along the way they find trouble, doge many hungry zombies and have a spot of health issues. In the end they are still looking for a safe haven and a toll of Zombies killed: too many to count. Humans murdered: 1 and Human Mercy Killings: 2.
Opinion: For my second zombie book it was…just below ok. At first I wasn’t sure of the surroundings because the description starts off as nice houses and become not so nice houses, like he goes from living in middle-class housing to ghetto housing. There were other inconsistencies and some poorly researched references. Unless the UK is father behind the times than the US, I could be wrong, but don’t think so. Then there is the character himself, Chris. In the very beginning you think of him as the hero, you know he is the main character so he is supposed to be the good guy right? You learn very quickly he is nothing but an asshole who kind of deserves to be turned. It is an ok read but for the most part, just not my cup of tea.
