Review by: Toren Taylor on May 8, 2012 :
This book is a pleasant surprise.
My experience with zombies consisted of seeing late night movies all trying to win the title of "worst remake of Night of the Living Dead". Combine this with "after the apocalypse" and I can think of six Really Bad book ideas in under a minute.
So imagine my delight when I sat down to read this and discovered a series of wonderfully written vignettes that examined what real people would face, and overcome, if put in the world of the book's title. The viewpoints are fresh and imaginative, the characters believable, and the author deftly navigates the minefield of possible cliches without setting off a single one. This book deserves a place on your "read again" list.
