it was amazing
Read from November 16 to 23, 2011

I was totally blown away by this novel.
The writing style is exciting, quirky, intelligent, humorous and completely engrossing.
I was immediatley grabbed from the first page and couldn't stop reading until the very end.
Matthew Darst weaves a tale set in an apocalyptic world that keeps the reader interested and constantly wanting more with a style that is rarely found in this genre. The story itself is brilliant, a true zombie novel that fits well into the genre. The difference between this and many other "zombie" stories is the intelligence and humour that are dashed throughout the pages. His writing style made me think of a mix between Terry Pratchett (for his use of words) and Kevin Smith (for his use of nerdy knowledge and comedy).
I would not only recommend this book to fans of the genre, I would demand that they read it.
I shall be looking out for more from this author.
