it was amazing
bookshelves: own-it, horror, zombies

This book draws you in and nearly makes you believe in its reality in a chilling way. With interesting if thinly-veiled political/social commentary as well, this is probably pretty close to what it would be like. Though this is pure fiction, the horror stories of the zombie war also serve to arouse sympathy for those involved in real wars.

Kendrawesome and I think they're making this into a movie now, IIRC

Helen will probably see it, good reviews or otherwise (zombie movies usually get a free pass in that department)
