it was amazing
bookshelves: sci-fi
Read from May 18 to 19, 2012

Read it out of sync with the series but it didn't matter in the slightest, so easily read as a stand alone book.
Story was compelling and easy to follow with any details provided straight away.
The Fear follows the story of "Dognut", so named after his gaming tag and his small group of comrades trekking through the deadly streets of London looking for their friends they were separated from a year ago. They know the chances are slim with the sickos, diseased adults having a ravenous taste for children's flesh roaming the streets in packs but there has to be hope somewhere in this new nightmare of a world.
The group face some heartbreaking losses and jubilant successes which had me enthralled the entire time.
Very graphic and shocking. Have never read a zombie thriller before but really enjoyed it and will get the others in the series just to see how it all began.
No editing errors, which is something that really irks me!
Even the hardcover book was a pleasure with the art and black edged pages.
