My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Though I swore I’d never read zombie books, this one caught my attention because it used the zombies more as a (very dangerous) backdrop to the setting. The story is really about Georgia and her brother, blog journalists following the campaign trail of a presidential candidate. After a series of attempts at sabotaging the campaign with the use of the virus that causes people to become zombies, the journalists uncover a conspiracy that runs deep within the campaign itself. The characters were excellent and fun to read. The zombies well done, with a fairly believable set-up. My only complaint was the predictable ending. It became clear who the culprit was early on and there was no twist from that direction. That’s a shame, one good plot twist would have easily made this a 5-star book. Still, it’s a fun read and I recommend it. I listened to the audio version. The narrator did well except for her portrayal of Steve, the head security guy. She gave him a cliche big, dumb voice. I thought the character would have sounded much more intelligent.

Overall, well done.

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.
