Wow. What a twist on the way I've come to view zombies. Great writing, but did seem to lag for me in the middle. I found I cared more for some than others and skimmed past parts where I wasn't as interested. Some parts just didn't work for me, yet others played beautifully.
I look forward to more from this author and do recommend this thought provoking (yes, the first time I've used thought provoking to describe a zombie novel) book.
