I like The Walking Dead TV show. I LOVE The Walking Dead comic. I really enjoy zombie-fiction as a whole. So I should want to marry this book, right? Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood, or right frame of mind, but I didn't feel this book at all. It just felt tired, and even a bit hackneyed. The weird thing is I get the feeling that this story would have worked better in the comic, but it just didn't feel like a Walking Dead story to me as it stands.

There is a cheap twist ending in this, and I called it within the first 10 pages. Granted, as you read on you tend to think that guess was wrong (I've seen others say they called it as well), but then it comes back and you're like "...whatever book."
