really liked it
Read from June 28 to July 01, 2012

Yes, this was a zombie book, but it seemed different than most zombie books. Instead of starting the book right when the zombie apocalypse began or soon after, it starts about 14 years after it happened. It's a very different point of view when you see the world through someone's eyes who doesn't even remember what the world was like "before". The characters were great and the relationship building between the two brothers was awesome. I liked all the little details Maberry put in like the job options for a 15 year old and how everyone locks themselves into their rooms at night to keep the zombies out and to keep themselves in if they happen to die in the night. You can tell he really REALLY thought everything through. I liked the twist near the end... it helped make up for the fact that a lot of other things that happened were easy to see coming. Looking forward to picking up the sequel at some point.
