Over all I liked the book OK. I have the Return of the Living Dead soundtrack on vinyl I can smell your brains! The zombie animals are no picnic either. We are more than infinity.

The ending was extremely frustrating, as it bran really end, much like a horror film with a cliff hanger.


Somewhat related, was it just me or was every black character a stereotype? Now, everything with a brain gets reanimated upon death AND retains some of its own knowledge.

That means that after just a few weeks it is almost inconceivable that keeene living creature could avoid the decaying eyes of the almost countless undead. Whilst looking for zombie books worth reading, I saw this one mentioned and figured it looked like it might be a decent read. I was told this was the start of the zombie genre and that it couldn’t get any better than this. I’m sorry – zombie fish? In fact many of these are mentioned in the book.

In this zombie book all living creatures that can move are susceptible to becoming a zombie. And yet I trudged on, a alzamifnto for punishment as always.
