it was amazing
bookshelves: library, novel

Fantastically entertaining and brilliant novel. I'm not a zombie fanboy, and I don't like horror films. But this is a sharp geopolitical action novel about a worldwide infection that uses the zombie meme in a decidedly smart, not tacky, way. Brilliant writing, wonderful story, highly entertaining. I recommend it completely. This will likely be one of my top books of '12.
