bookshelves: read-in-2013, did-not-finish

This is just not working for me. I expected more from the authors and really all I was looking for was a little fun. As far as I saw the zombies aren't traditional, they seemed to be more of the voodoo/hoodoo variety and that's not my sort of zombie. Also, I've only seen the zombies once in the opening chapter. After that, there hasn't been anything. One other problem I had was the steampunk character introduced after chapter one. At that point, there were too many genres; Western, Zombie, and Steampunk. Zombie Western I could enjoy, but not a Steampunk Zombie Western. But that wasn't what really bothered me. It was the glaring mistakes in the story. Flat out lazing writing. I don't mean typos, I mean plot mistakes. So, I've decided it's time to move on and let this one go.I talk about this book and others on my YouTube channel, here:
