First off, let me just say that I really was grabbed right from the get-go by the cover. I love it! It’s creepy but cozy, too – does that make sense? Probably not, but that is exactly the feeling it evokes in me. The whole mess starts in D.C. which I found humorous. What can I say? In my opinion, our Capitol is already filled with a brain-dead congress. So that started the book off on the right track for me. Told from the perspective of a savvy young protagonist who has actually prepared for ...more

I loved this book; why then am I giving it only 4 stars? The editing could have been better. There were many sentences with a missing word or misplaced word causing me to re-read the sentence a couple times. Enough about that. I wasn't sure what to expect to have happened to the world once the group ran away from civilization. I did get very much involved with the characters and felt they were very realistic.

There are spoilers below so please stop reading if you don't want to know. I wasn't expe

m a huge fan of the majorly popular zombie apocalypse story line. I love the show The Walking Dead and this novel was simliar (in ways) to TWD which means I LOVED IT!

I like Stephanie's style of writing, the book was easy to read and understand. I loved how IN DEPTH she got with the characters. I love well developed characters and this was definitly a major plus in this story!

This story is not as 'action packed' as some zombie apocalypse stories can be, but that was just fine with me!! It was uni

I give this only three stars, because although I really enjoyed the characters and the interesting plot building, I felt I only got to read part of the story. It didn't read like a traditional part of a series book, it read more like just a novella. The premise is a zombie apocalypse, but don't expect to read about anything zombie related. The book follows a couple in executing the first part of "the plan" and never really fleshes out anything beyond the first step. that being said, I will be ...more
Really enjoyed this book. I wish it had more of the Zombie aspect to it. But it was a good set up book for this series. You didn't really get much info on the zombie virus until the very end, and that was a bit frustrating. But it was more a glimpse of the very beginning, getting to a safe place, stocking up on supplies, and how much they were cut off from ANY information at all. They were totally secluded so had no clue about anything. So the next book should be very good. As I said this is a ...more

I really enjoyed this book. I love the idea of a couple who sits around planning for the Apocalypse. That sounds like something I would do!

The characters were relateable and I have definite favorites I am rooting for. There's not a whole lot of edge of your seat action and suspense, but there's a definite buildup and many parts that leave you wondering what's going to happen next.

I'm looking forward to the next book in the series to see what goes on next! I dub it definitely worth a read. Pick

Feb 05, 2015 Colleen Lindstrom rated it it was amazing day I typed in to a search engine "I wish there was a zombie apocalypse". On one of the blogs I read, I found a link to this book. It was the very first zombie book I'd ever read, and am now completely hooked on them. It had descriptive character - super easy to get a good mental image of what was going on. My only complaint is that there wasn't more! I keep hoping there will be other books to follow, as we just barely got started with zombie adventures here.
