Read in May, 2008

This was my very first "zombie" book. And I'll have to say I was a bit disappointed in his explanation of the zombie phenomenon. That aside, the plot ebbed and flowed. Sometimes it seemed well-paced and other times it was stagnant. I also had a problem with the ending. Either kill them off or let them live, or at the very least, lean one way or the other and let the reader decide. But to have an ending that is completely going to leave the reader hanging doesn't sit well with me. It makes me feel the author just could decide or ran out of time and just stopped his books. It makes the story feel very unfinished.

MK (Food actvist) City of the Dead is a continuation if your intrested in more about this story. There's more short stories involving these characters as well.

Jackie I just found City of the Dead a few weeks ago! I have it now and its in my To Read pile. We'll see how it goes. My husband read it and said if the Rising made me cranky, it will, too. That said, we'll see. I'm trying to keep an open mind.
