it was amazing

** spoiler alert ** SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!

This book starts off with a slightly slow moving story line. But man dose it speed up fast. You are thrown into a melee of Zombies who are not only out to eat you...but damn well are smart enough to trap you into it. This is the one of the unique and original parts in this book. The damn zombies are smart...really smart. You find this out quickly in the beginning (which to me is a breath of fresh putrid air; i always love a dead thing that is smart to boot),then comes the reason the zombies are zombies. It is a well worn road of biological experiment gone wrong...but with a twist. I will not divulge it here. But i will say if you LOVE zombies,gore,action, oh and Zombie Groundhogs. You will like this book, it is fast paced, engrossing, and damn well good to read. It can be said that this book is somewhat of a original in the zombie genre (which is a oddity truly, there are not many new outlooks for zombies) . Oh i will tell you , you may hate the ending ( i did ) to combat this hatred..pick up the second installment "City of The Dead" and all will soon be forgiven.
