Why did I love this book?
This was the zombie book that infected me. It served as the gateway drug which lead to a lifetime of addiction. Although I had been watching zombie films since I was way too young to be watching zombie films, this is the book that made me want to write my own stories and also lead me to my future publisher. The first-person narrative and suspense woven into every chapter grabs you right from the start and features the very beginning of the zombie apocalypse, which in my opinion is the very best part of all zombie stories. While I often start reading books, only to stop and pick up days or weeks later, Bourne created a book that I truly could not put down.
