Every morning, Melanie waits in her cell to be collected for class. When they come for her, Sergeant Parks keeps his gun pointing at her while two of his people strap her into the wheelchair. She thinks they don't like her. She jokes that she won't bite, but they don't laugh.
- Zombies are all over the market - books, tv shows, movies, ect. Most of the time there are similarities between the stories but i felt like this one had something new and unique. I was drawn into the book directly from the beginning.
- Melanie was amazing. I don't really want to spoil anything, but she has to be one of my all-time favorite main characters ever. She was kind, smart, heck she was brilliant. She is also very self-aware. It is hard to explain but I am sure you will love her just as much.
- The writing in this story was also so unique. We were giving different POVs but in a third person, first person unique way. I don't really know how to describe it.
- The side characters were also really well done, the teacher, the doctor, the sergeant and the private were each well-defined with interesting back stories. We were given insight into their past lives before the plague that turned humans into zombies.
- One thing I always miss about zombie stories is exactly how the epidemic started, this book was amazingly detailed on what virus was that started the outbreak. I love that. I want to know how and why when I am reading stories like this.
- I know it is probably not the good to always think of books as movies or tv shows, but I love to see a book played out on the screen, when it is well done. I could totally see this book as a tv show. There is enough meat to the story to give it some amazing seasons.
- Really the only gripe I had was that the middle-ish part of the book got a little slow. Other than that, it was an amazing book.
