I'm an internet junkie that is obsessed with books. I own more than I will ever read in this lifetime and yet I'm still compelled
to buy more. I read mostly romance (mild to completely smutty), YA and urban fantasy.
I had never heard of this author or this book when I came upon the blog contest, but the words zombie apocalypse are impossible for me to resist, so I immediately entered. I find that I'm quite happy that I won.This was a quick, entertaining read. It had some gruesome parts, but also some humorous parts to keep things balanced.
Bryce is the first person narrator of the book and I found him immediately likable. He's just a normal guy stuck in a completely insane situation and trying to make it through. He ends up joining up with Richard and Cole in hopes of finding some kind of answer to what is going on and perhaps safety too. The relationships between the three men are complicated and they go through a lot together trying to survive.
The ending was a bit bittersweet, which is what you would probably expect from a book about a zombie apocalypse. I do think there is room for another book here if the author decides to go there. Bottom line, if you are a fan of The Walking Dead, but have thought to yourself that the show would be better with some hot man on man action, this might be the right book for you.
