liked it

It took me a long time to get into this. I was expecting murderous zombies and plenty of action, but this book was more about the emotions of loss than the flesh hungry, risen dead. Once I came to terms with that fact I started to enjoy it more. Around the half way point I considered giving up but I decided to carry on and take it for what it is. This book is nothing life changing or spectacular but it's ok. I thought he did a good job of capturing grief and the speculation about why it was happening, although if it was me I would be speculating a lot more!!

Jo Lol yeah I gave it a go. I am thinking about downgrading it to 3 stars though when I look back at other books I rated 4 stars. I don't think it's quite there.
