This turned out to be a decent book, but it could have been way better.
It started out slow and kinda boring, but eventually I got into it. It was almost like the author couldnt get into her ‘groove’ until she wrote for a while.
I liked the characters, dont get me wrong, but in the beginning, and some parts later on, I wanted to smack Zoe. Way too much crying for me. Yeah this is my issue, but I like my women to be a little tougher in the books I read. I want a bad ass zombie slaying chick who kicks ass and takes name, not some girl who cries at the drop of a hat.
For me while reading the dialogue between the characters I find myself asking who the hell talks like this, especially in a freaking zombie crazy world. Everything they said was extremely proper, and said in vivid detail. This was part of the reason I had trouble getting into the book in the beginning. It didnt feel real, it felt fake and forced. Like I said it got better later on, but I would still read something and roll my eyes because it just didnt fit.
I like how these are smart zombies, who are as devious as they are gross. A nice change for a zombie novel.
I dont really consider this a spoiler since it has to be running through your mind as a possibility the whole time you are reading the book. But if you dont wish to know, skip ahead. The whole pregnancy thing pissed me off. How stupid, and how naive can you possibly be to not consider this before you go and have sex a bunch of times unprotected? I think we all knew it was coming, so no surprise there but come on! I blame both Boggs and Zoe. Dumb dumb dumb!
Will I read the next book in the series? Absolutly! I really want to see where the author is going with this, and I really want to know what happens to the characters. As much as some of them pissed me off I still like them, lol.
Will I recommend it? Yes, to all my zombie loving friends. Lori this is you my dear!
