Starting a new series is always exciting. It's like inviting new people over to your house for a dinner party. You know you're going to be stuck with these people for awhile so you really hope they're interesting. The characters in this first book of the Zombies! series turned out to be anything but boring. Tragic and realistic backstories flesh them out and show the reasons they have to survive. The reasons they have to press on and beat their way through to the other side. Sometimes that ...more

Excellent! Looking forward to the rest of this series becoming available on audible. I have found listening to this genre much more satisfying than reading. Some books I prefer to read. Yet, I find the zombie apocalypse (and apocalypse books in general) are electric when well written and narrated. .A Small World (Zombies!, #1) is one such example. R.S. Merritt is fabulous!

Good read

Great characters and plot. Enough characters to have action in each chapter but not too many to get confused. Nice ride in the apocalypse to see to the end. Ended a bit abruptly for me hence the 4 stars

I learned that this author isn't afraid to bump someone one off while reading the Zournal series so I was prepared in that regard. I like the three storylines and am hoping they intertwine in book 2.

Very good. Characters are likable and easy to relate to. Looking forward to the next book tho find out how things go for them.
Shreaking, fast running zombie. Yikes! At least they aren't all skinny and slow. They have differences like the people they were before the virus. That's my biggest complaint of The Walking Dead. If 70% of Americans are overweight, how would all the zombies become skinny? I'll take that diet! LOL!

It isn't the zombies that pull me into books about zombies. It is the survivors. You probably don't get a choice who you spend the apocalypse with. Our ways of defining each other, style, size, shape,

This author's favorite literary device is the run-on sentence. The typos and instances of grammatically incorrect word usage are too numerous to overlook. This book reads like a first draft; with some good editing to weed out the run-ons and typos, there would be a lot of potential.

I did like the structure of three parallel storylines during a zombie apocalypse, and I loved that the characters had real, human flaws. Unfortunately, the writing is too rough for me to want to continue with this

Excellent Beginning

This book has an excellent beginning to the "zombie" apocalypse. Characters that readers can connect with and other characters who are easy to despise. This story follows three small groups of survivors looking for family and safety in the crazy new world. Well written! This reader is looking forward to book 2.

Starts out strong

And keeps on going. I really enjoyed this book. We get to know the characters and keep the action going. My only regret is that the next book isn't out yet.

Thank you for taking the time out to read this. My love of books mostly developed when I spent time as a kid living in lighthouses. Despite what you may see on the news and read about on the internet the life of a lighthouse keepers son is not all Glamour and Parties. There's a lot of time when there really isn't much to do besides wonder if the fog horn has finally made you deaf or watch your dad ...more
