Jeff Sorbenstein is having a bit of a bad day. Last year, he was on the cover of Times magazine as their "Man Of The Year" having made billions through his creation of possibly the most successful Software Application ever, used by everyone all around the globe . Today, he has just been told he has Cancer...inoperable cancer....and he is going to die.

When you blast your way through a book in a day, then it's going to get a good mark. This is the End is every zombie book you've ever read, but it's such fun. Pity it was so short, though. It left a few plot holes behind that prevent me from giving top marks.
