really liked it
bookshelves: zombies, horror, standalone, african-lit

Brooks can write really harrowing zombie scenes, unfortunately here he buries those underneath pages of survivors' ramblings and various information on government strategizing. I read zombie fiction for the zombies, not for the geopolitical ramifications of a zombie outbreak. I also have to admit I was a bit disappointed in just how well human governments survived. Scenes such as zombies climbing all over a submarine sitting on the bottom of the ocean made it well worth the read, however. Just be aware that you have to earn those scenes by wading through a bit of non-zombie related information first.

Check out my full review.
