it was ok
Read in March, 2011

Beamer is a competent writer. She can evoke dread. Her use of description is economical, which is my personal preference, and she handles action pretty well. But her persistence in sexualizing all interactions becomes numbing. Regardless of where or when people encounter one another, it's apparently appropriate that they fondle, excite, and satisfy each other, even in public. It brings the reader out of the fictional dream, because, while the reader has gone into this with a willingness to accept zombies as a fact of life, she isn't necessarily accustomed to seeing people casually having sex in front of everyone on the zeppelin tour. Perhaps Beamer was going for making zombies erotic, but I will freely admit that I don't find the idea of zombies eating people erotic in the least.

This is my first zombie novel, though. Maybe I'll 'warm up to them'. HAAAHAHA!
