really liked it
bookshelves: young-adult

This book side by side w/ The Forest of Hands & Teeth really highlights the difference between male & female YA authors. Carrie Ryan spent a lot of time internally with character development, which made Forest of Hands & Teeth sort of a 'chick' zombie book, though the series seriously ramps up on the zombie gore by book 3. Rot & Ruin wastes much less time internally but still totally worked for this chick. Loved the Mysterious zombie hunting badass Lost Girl out in woods This book was fun to read, riveting to the last, and did have something to say about how the zombies aren't the worst threat in a world where fear and lawlessness rules. I'm already plowing through the next one and loving it as well.
