First of the cover was very gruesome and creepy(in a good way of course!) and after I read the back and found out it(the zombie apocalyose) starts in London using a series of documents and tweets and stuff, I was "Whoa! Now THAT sound interesting" I bought it a couple of seconds later. The book had an interesting premise and delivered it almost perfectly. Some of the stories blew my mind, there was literally a voice in my head that said "OH SNAP!" I particularly liked the first person stories, seeing as how it tells what kind of feeling people have during event. It was different for each one and that added a wider scope into the human mind. Although I really do like the "secretary" eating the brains of a murdered person while typing. That was hilarious. Very few stories were what I thought werent necessary, like the song and the bit about the Christian preacher.
The ending is confusing at first, but then the epilogue kind of clears it up. All in all a good example of a zombie anthology. I will definitely look out for more books like this....more
very teen-ish book. an easy read and it got very addictive. i couldnt put the book down(literally, almost missed dinner)

It was easy to relate to Marisa. all the strugles she had gone through, the boyfriend-bestfriend game of tug of war, The close guy-friend who was waiting in the wings and it was all executed perfectly.
the only problem was that it wasnt very descriptive. it was hard to imagine what each of the chraracters looked like, or the scenes that took place (which i ,and probably most bookworms, love to imagine in our heads.)
well-developed characters with common but yet unique personalities.
first, with the cover and all, it seemed like a soppy love story, but as i got deeper in the book, it proved to be more than meets the eye.
i'd reccommend it to 8th-10th graders.
oh and one more thing: i completely agree with Colasanti's (or Marisa's, however you view it) opinion about John Mayer's songs. He is AMAZING!...more
