This is a hard book to review because to be honest, I'm still not entirely sure what my thoughts are about it!!! Plus, the things I didn't really like about it are all spoilers so I'm going to have to try and say what I want without really saying what I want!!
Character wise, for most of the book we only have Amo. He seems to be the only survivour of a "zombie" apocalypse. Now, he figures that the reason he survived was his illness. I'm not really sure what his illness was, just saying ;) OK, so his illness saved him and he is alone amoung millions of "Zombies". He seems to have everything easy though, plenty of food, passage between buildings etc. He is like this for months when he finally thinks that there must be other survivours. Surely he isn't the only one? So he decides to go on a road trip, all the while documenting his journey so he can show other survivours where he is.
Meanwhile, a girl Amo liked, just happens to survive as well. (How she survived was ridiculous BTW) She doesn't know that Amo is alive and spends months on her own too. She finally finds evidence of him and takes off after him.
I didn't particularly like either of the characters. Amo was OK, at times he was a normal person just trying to survive but other times he seemed to transform into some do gooder and it really didn't work.
Plot wise, while there was some really unique and quirky things to like about this, I found the reason the "zombies" came to be totally and utterly ridiculous!! How in the world could it possibly happen that way, and so bloody quickly?? And if it did happen that way, why was the place nearly deserted when Amo went outside? I liked the fresh take on "Zombies" but there is certain thing they do to a certain someone that made no sense really. If they are unique, and they tasted something for the first time, it would stand to reason they might develop a taste for it, would they not??? Maybe in future books they would, but I don't know. Also, the book dragged a lot at times. I don't think the author needed to go into half the things he did! Finally, the thing that really annoyed me was the change in voice, most of the time it's written in first person for Amo, but suddenly it would change to something else and someone else's POV, with no warning, and would leave me wondering if I was listening to something else!
In all, this wasn't really for me. I might pick up the second one but I'm not sure, I'm still annoyed with how the "zombies" came to be!!! Plus the "zombies" themselves were a big let down in a way. They aren't even really "zombies".
The narration was fine. Sean Patrick Hopkins did a good job with Amo and read it well.
I received this via Audiobook Boom. This in no way affected or influenced my thoughts.

I love zombie books and I really wanted to like this one.
Usually I love books about zombies. I don't want to give anything away about the novel, but there was one or two aspects about the book that I just couldn't get my head wrapped around. If you enjoy books that seem to have a redeeming quality about them get this book you will enjoy it. However if you just like your zombie material more on the graphic level this book just might not be for you. Citing this I actually read the book in one setting the narration was very engaging and captivating if the narration was not so excellent I probably would not have finished the book.
I received this book at no cost for a honest review
