Once I started to read the book I really couldnt put it down. I hat to force myself to step away in order to do what I needed (like eat) but then I'd come back again. Finished it in about 4 days since I had lots ...more
I'm going to be completely honest with you, book review readers: I haven't watched "The Walking Dead." It sounded really good, I knew a lot of people whose opinions I respect loved it, but I watched one episode, got to the bit about the horse, and noped right out.

Thanks to Penguin for the ARC at NYCC.
