Why I like this book and why I believe it is not just another zombie story (The Hunger Games books; Warm Bodies etc).

The first few chapter introduces three of the main characters with just the right amount of humor and just enough insight into their personalities, that you become interested and care about them. Next, now that you know the characters it starts off with a bang or should I say a 'Growl'.

With evil zombies, there has got to be gore, but I enjoyed the way the author used humor to offset the gross factor you will understand when you read it.)

In this book, people of different ages, cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, etc. are thrown together while visiting the Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. They must survive the zombies and each other. Survival situations bring out the best and worst of the human character.

The reader is introduced to more characters who have different opinions on everything from government to science,ethics, religion and love. All of this brings a touch of reality to this this zombie story. It really is thought provoking.
I will say no more as not to give something away,
Great read!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story! Since I'm not a "zombie fan," I was a little hesitant to try it, but this story goes far beyond battles with zombies. There is a wide variety of characters that you get to know and care about; The author draws you into the story very quickly with a good dose of humor. After that, it is hard to put it down.. Topics such as government intrusion into our lives, coming of age, love and romance, action and adventure, morality and even theology are all interwoven into a fast paced story people of all ages can enjoy and identify with. It is a story of survival in Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado that seems so real that you might forget that zombies are fiction. I'm sure hoping that there will be a sequel!
