My Thoughts


Well…to be totally honest here…I only read the beginning and the end, I skipped the middle because too much zombie-ness gives me nightmares or in the case of this book, I just couldn't get to sleep all freaking night.  Honestly, the zombie apocalypse freaks me out, rationally, it's probably not even possible, but I'm not able to think rationally when all I can think about is something tearing my flesh apart or the possibility, that I might do that to someone I love.  {{{shuddering}}}  I thought for some reason, that maybe I was overcoming this issue and I could get through this…I was wrong.


So basically, this is based on my impression of the two parts that I did read.  I missed most of the relationship building and most likely some world building too.  I think, if you like Walking Dead then you would like this. I was reminded of snippets I've seen of that show when my daughter binge watches whole seasons on Netflix.


Sex Factor:  Not really sure on this one…
