I thought this story was rather interesting, but we'll get to that. First off, using the title World War H; is it a world war? Is it lazy to pick a title so close to World War z? The author used many repetitive words like: realized (realised), flesh, and zombies. I understand this is a story about zombies, but the word "zombie" appears numerous times in each paragraph. Perhaps the author would benefit from utilizing a thesaurus. Furthermore, never use a hash-tag (#) as a page break. Use ***. Now for the interesting stuff. At first I was confused that zombie Keith felt pain. He sweated, shivered, and even experienced disorientation. This brings up an interesting point: Do zombies think like we do? TV suggests they don't, but I guess the only way to know for sure is to become a member of the walking-dead. And the idea that shambling cadavers can reverse the zombie disease by feasting on other corpses is one that has not be dabbled with. Well done introducing new themes and elements into an otherwise over-crowded genre. Make this into a novel. I would love to see zombie Keith start an undead-revolution. Keep up the good work!
