Tracey | 12 comments I've been catching up on the D&HWF podcast, and I felt kind of bad that Zone One didn't do it for you guys.

I REALLY liked the book's literary take on the zombie genre and thought the near-constant flashbacks were emblematic of the PTSD that I imagine most survivors would suffer.

I also dug the whole concept of the "American Phoenix" as a reflection on 9/11 and found the "stragglers" were very disconcerting, and a great twist/addition to the overall zombie concept.

I've also read The Intuitionist and Apex Hides the Hurt, so my previous experience with Whitehead may have helped.

Will keep working my way thru the podcast back catalog & am looking forward to our upcoming chat on A Princess of Mars/the John Carter books.
