Background for this review: I know Will and like his writing. Otherwise I would not read a zombie story. I was pleased to find that in these stories the zombie plague works to highlight character. The narrator of "Days Go By" is strong and likeable, which makes his yearning for his father - and his belief that their relationship will be essentially unchanged - very touching. This may be my favorite. Look for the others in the series, too: "Killing Country Music" is a close second favorite of mine, and a good change in tone. What wannabe wouldn't relish a legitimate, compelling reason to kill the big stars? Follow this book!
