Not to brag, but I sort of consider myself a zombie fiction expert at this point and this book was not up to snuff. The writing was super wordy (really, Mr. Whitehead, why not use four words when one just won't do) and that took me out of the story quite a bit. Also, the characters were shady and mysterious, but not in a plot-advancing way, in a "look what I can do with my characters sort of way".

So, to sum: boring and overlong. If you haven't read The Strain, stop reading this book and start that one. It's how the genre is done, my friends.
