As a confessed post-apoc-a-phile with love for all things undead, I am normally easy to please.

I felt that the overall feel of this novel was forced upon us, it tried to be an atypical zombie novel, to be different and unique, and to not be generic. The beginning of the book was fantastic. I loved the whole people fell down, screamed really loudly.....and then they changed concept. It was well written, engaging, and exciting. Problem is after that the book fell apart. Even with fast moving zombies (runners), there were no matching fast paced thrilling chases that really took advantage of them. The characters were uninteresting to me and forgettable, Couple this with the bizarre abominations that to me ruined the rest of the story. I sped through the last 100 pages and found little that will stay with me. I probably will read Tooth and Nail as it is well liked and I do like DiLouie's writing style, but this one did not work for me...

Kaitlyn I think you mean post-apoc-a-phile actually.
