really liked it

** spoiler alert ** First let me say they are not zombies they are demons (my opinion). I liked the book, Brian Keene writes as if these characters are really talking. Some parts of this kinda of made me say out loud "REALLY!?" and not in a good way :such as: any chapter that took place with the crazy general and rapist soldiers and their captured town. OK sure its was to show how horrible things were between the Demons! and the evil of others. but it seemed like some teenagers porn fiction during those chapters. however it was rewarding when they got theirs in the end.
The ending of the book did anger me a bit. I finished the book during a plane flight back home and my first thought after putting it down was that i wish the plane would crash but after some thought (Months later) I realized that was a good ending as it was very bleak for them the entire journey there and the whole point of the story was Jim's struggle to get to his son. I gave it a four because it was a good read and i did enjoy it.
