I read this book because we're visiting Adirondack Park this summer as campers, and I was hoping the book would transpire in the woods and water. Unfortunately, the story quickly moves from camp to town. Bummer. If you're looking for the characters to fight it out in the wilderness, nope. But that doesn't make this a bad read. This book moves quickly, and I found myself picking it up whenever I had a free moment.
Definitely, a guy read. I found myself most frustrated with the guy lingo. In my op

Definitely entertaining

There are so many zompoc series out there, some amazing, some atrocious. This series is definitely not atrocious, and even leans towards wildly entertaining. Something about writers of this genre from the east coast just seems to bring another level of depth to their stories. Maybe they are just all in a cult and have figured out how to mesmerize us through subliminal messages on our electronic devices, who knows, who cares.....must read more.....leave reviews....tell oth

It's Certainly Wild! 😱

This is one of the very best zombie apocalypse stories I've read. The characters are great and there isn't one dull page to be found. I could easily see this made into a movie, that's how brilliantly it's easy to see it all in your mind as your reading it. I think any fan of great stories will enjoy this book and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. It's absolutely enjoyable.

Fun adventure

A fun book to read. Kids getting sent to a camp to survive a Zombie Apocalypse and what happens? A real Zombie outbreak. The author showed how different people react in the face of danger. Who stands up to save others? The young man others saw as a misfit. I enjoyed the first book and look forward to the next exciting book from author Jack Hunt.

A fun ride

I like this side of a zombie apocalypse. This was a good read, good pacing. Sometimes Scott annoyed me, but in the end he was right to go with his gut feeling. I'm on to book 2, I gotta find out what happens back at camp.

Finally found the right author !!!!!

Read all 4 E.M.P. Survival books and had to have more of Jack Hunt. Found him in "Fantastic Fiction". Uk. I like the fact that the lead character in the 2 series I have read has some balls.

3 1/2 stars ok zombie story

This honk twas a perfectly good story. I'm just taking a half star off because every time he talked about the newly created zombies they already were decomposing. I don't think that's how it works. If you've got time this is entertaining.

Not a fan

O am not a fan of zombies, but having read Mr Humt,s books before , I took a chance on this. It was a good read for a chilly afternoon. I just bought the second book and I am going to read it now.

I like a fast moving book

O like me some zombie whooping. I like to wonder what I would do, how brave or scared of dead i would be. This book takes u to all those places. I'm on to the next Jack Hunt adventure.

Scared me sleepless.

This was an exciting book. The characters were real and interesting. There were some unanswered questions that make the next book a must read.
