This is, by far, the most realistic zombie apocalypse anything ever. I know, I know, the fact that "zombie" is in that sentence means it's not realistic at all. That said, if zombies were real, this is how it would happen.

I really wanted to like this book. Instead, I forced myself to finish it. Here's my dilemma: The author is a feminist ... I am a feminist ... But we are not the same kind of feminists. Her views are extreme to the point of man-hating. It just didn't...more
