really liked it
bookshelves: finished

Loved it. A fast and compelling read. Not only for the entertainment potential regarding zombies but for a view of a world facing an unknown threat. For example, the nature of governments to attempt to use military tactics that only worked in a bygone era and that do not actively deal with the enemy combatant's particular mindset (Malcolm Gladwell describes this tactic in his book "Blink"). Besides, the biggest kick is trying to match the described personalities with their proper names. I figured out Bill Maher, Ann Coulter, Howard Dean and Paris Hilton...among others.

Somewhat thought provoking and entertaining. I'd recommend it as decent airplane material.
