I don't get how 76% of the people who have rated this book (to date) have given it 4 or 5 star ratings. This book has a 3.94 average rating right now, and it baffles me, because I just finished this book, and... no. No. It's not a 4 or 5 star book.

This book has a lot of issues. It's an interesting premise - girl returns from the dead to help prevent the zombie apocalypse. But the execution was just ridiculously bad. If this book was edited, the editor should be slapped and then fired. But never

How can you love (or even like) someone who is walking around dead? How does that living-dead person, who in this case retains full use of her mind, cope with being a corpse? This is what Nathan and Trina face. Nathan is alive and well, just your average kid -- until his older sister's best friend, Trina, comes back from the grave weeks after her untimely accidental death. Unfortunately for Nathan, Trina has seen visions indicating that he's mankind's best hope during the forthcoming zombie ...more
Is Overrun, the first book in the Turncoats Series just another YA zombie apocalypse book? That would be a HUGE NO!!! Are there drooling zombies chomping away on the living? Well, yes. Are there survivors on the run, facing danger at every turn? Yes, again. Has the world gone a little crazy? Definitely. So, you ask, what is so different about Overrun by author Brian Clopper? There is non-stop action, there are unlikely heroes, but the big difference is in the presentation and writing style of th ...more

Overrun is a pretty solid story from start to finish by Brian Clopper. This story is geared toward YA/Horror audience and won't leave them disappointed.

I really liked the characters Clopper created. Nathan and Trina are a great zombie-fighting duo. Lots of action and lots of zombies! However, you won't find an ending to the zombie break-out in this book. You will have to wait for the second book, which I don't believe is out yet.

I did run into a few typos in the Kindle edition, but it wasn't e

Imagine your were told by your sister's friend that you were going to have to save the world. And if that is not enough, imagine your sister's friend is dead. What would you be thinking, or what would you do being told that and realizing your world was being overrun by Zombies?

A friend of mine on GR had posted this as a freebie on Amazon, and since I was wanting to read a more intense zombie book I jumped at this free offer. I did have reservations about it since it was free, but those were lai

Nathan gets a surprise visit from his sister's friend, Trina. However, Trina had died in a car crash. She was brought back from the dead to warn Nathan about the upcoming disasters. Within the next few days, black towers were to rise from the ground and everyone who touches them were going to turn to zombies.

I have never read a zombie book because it's something I'm not really into. But this book has changed my view on stuff like that. I thought this book was fast paced and flowed well. The boo

I received a copy of this for honest review. 'Overrun' is the first book in a YA Zombie series starring teenager Nathan who has been informed by his sister's dead best friend Trina that he has an important part to play in saving the world.

This is an action-packed horror adventure aimed at teens ages 13 and up. There is a bit of a different twist to the zombie apocalypse story here, and this is mainly what kept me intrigued and turning pages! The characters are likeable and I felt particularly sy

I read this book in one sitting. I found the characters easy to get involved with - still not happy that some of my favourites met a nasty end but I was definitely left excited to see what happens to them all next.

A geeky male lead and dead female lead make for an unusual but involving combination

This was a really good book. It started out kind of slow for me, then when the action started it was non stop and had my heart racing at times, definitely a new twist on zombies for me, but I would recommend it to anyone!!!!
