I read this online, and it was a pretty good zombie story. It helped that the chapter setup online really let you feel the fact that it had been written as a serial. I can't pinpoint why that made a difference, but I think it did--the chapter breaks were fairly significant.

Some elements of the driving force of the story seemed kind of contrived to me--the main character's big objective is to kill the specific zombie that killed his wife, which doesn't quite make sense, but okay. He's mourning. But all these other characters seem to understand and even go out of their way to help him on this bizarre and not-very-sensible quest.

Aside from this premise issue, and the fact that one of the scenes near the end felt like a kick in the gut to me (I don't think it was worse than other scenes, it just pressed my personal creep-out buttons), this was an action-packed zombie adventure, and if that's what you look for, read this. Heck, you don't even have to go to the library--it's online.

Natasa that's what i thought too! what's the point in seeking some zombie out of million others...and getting probably killed on the way...since they all loose their hairs and get extra ugly and unrecognazable how will he ever find this particular zombie??? i just hope that he might find his son...even though this is just my guess, since he didn't see him getting killed as well...
