Jul 05, 2011

really liked it
bookshelves: 2011, science-fiction, big-kahuna, apocalypse, zombies
Read in July, 2011

Ages 13+ (enough language to just push it into PG-13, but plenty of gore)

You know how I used to read The Stand every year when summer rolled around? This book calls to mind The Walking Dead comic, Under the Dome or The Stand without seeming too derivative of any of them. High tension and stakes throughout, fabulous characterization, and epic scope. I wish this had been a single 1,000 page book instead of half of one, because I'm sure I would have kept reading to the end.


4.5 stars, with time to think on it and change it.
