I really don't like zombies stories. I never have. But this is the second zombie book I've read and the second that I just couldn't not put on my favorites shelf. I think I loved everything about this book. I loved the characters, I loved the dialogue and the interactions, I loved the world building and the details. I loved that it wasn't a boring love triangle that dominated the story. And I loved that I could not predict what was going to happen. I also loved that one of the narrators, [a:Jesse Bernstein|465708|Jesse Bernstein|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1303963992p2/465708.jpg], is the Percy Jackson narrator. Points for that.
I can't say anything about this book without telling too much. I just want to gush about it. And Shaun. Ugh I just have a lot of feelings right now.
As for people who didn't like this book, I honestly am completely bewildered by that. I can't see how they would dislike this book, especially the details. To be honest, it was along the lines of mystery/suspense like [a:Michael Crichton|5194|Michael Crichton|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1359042651p2/5194.jpg] would write, especially in the scale of detail that brings a fictional/sci-fi story into the realm of believability. This is a very well written, detailed, heartfelt book. I think perhaps people might get confused into thinking this is a YA book. It is definitely not.
