Long, meaty paragraphs that accurately describe how the zombies started, how they work and why. How did these two figure it out? An armchair discussion over beer while they were holed up. What distresses me the most, however, is the afterword, where Mark Clodi admits that this book took years to self-edit. It doesn't show, and it's a bit depressing to know that he gave his best effort, and you're looking at it. If you plan to self-publish, I'd honestly recommend getting this book for free or at a severe discount, then going through it and finding all the errors the author made and not doing them.
Have a plan. Do your research. Get someone else to edit the work for you if English is not your strong suit.
It's so much better for that one person to tell you that something's wrong before you publish, rather than get an irate review like this done up. May 25, Amanda T rated it did not like it. Publishing your own novel gives a voice to authors who might normally never be heard, but I can't help thinking that there might be a reason why they aren't published. It's also my opinion that if one is asked to pay for a self-published book, it better be good. I bought this one for my Sony Reader because I thought it sounded promising.
This would have been a two star rating except for the following: - it's unintentionally funny page - I would hope the building has an outside entrance; this is one example of many ; - a lot of editing errors the author claims to have fixed these after re-reading his book 11 times ; - it's sexist near the end - a comment about good thing his wife didn't gain any weight after they were married However, the idea is still good - intelligent zombies who feed on humans for energy. Too bad the zombies sound like they come from a trailer park though. Please for the sake of everyone else who might read this book, get yourself a better editor.
Mar 09, Grep rated it really liked it. I have also read a lot of uninspired, paint by the numbers Zombie books and stories in the past 3 years, so if you are going to switch it up - it better be damn good and create a world with characters I want to visit over and over again. Mr Clodi succeeds were many have failed. I enjoy the company of many of these characters and care about where the groups of survivors end up.
His writing and stories improve with each book, trust me, the training wheels come off after this novel and you can tell he wholeheartedly believes in the world that he creates. Some of the Zombies do not like being controlled by their masters who have turned them - so there are some unique story arcs that I really appreciated. So if you need a change of pace Zombie book with some supernatural mixed in, take a chance here - I guarantee you will at least like the characters if you don't agree with the premise.
Mar 16, Shelley rated it it was amazing Shelves: read-in , zombies. I greatly enjoyed this zombie book. The play between zombie and human is an interesting twist. I'm looking forward to reading the next two books. Aug 06, Sarah Jentzen rated it it was ok.
They already have a name for intelligent zombies who are really fast, can regenerate when hurt, and communicate with their thoughts, they are called vampires. Mar 31, John L rated it really liked it. May not be the "popular" zombie idea, but its a fresh twist, and makes them scarier! I enjoyed it immensely! Oct 15, Helena Sheibler rated it liked it.

Wow This is a really exciting read! It has tons of action, loads of danger, and great characters. The zombies are some of the scariest out there too. May 28, Justine rated it liked it. An interesting find on the free books list in my iPhone iBooks bookstore. The zombies in this story differ from the "normal" stereotypical zombies we know of: mindless, slow, shuffling, rotting corpses intent only on devouring the living.
There are some zombies like this in the book, but there are also "smart" zombies: ones who can talk and look normal, and ones who are fast and have super strength.
The zombies are also able to regenerate after receiving wounds; they can grow appendages back and An interesting find on the free books list in my iPhone iBooks bookstore. The zombies are also able to regenerate after receiving wounds; they can grow appendages back and heal fast. Some remember their lives prior to dying. On the other hand, there are still some of the basics: virus spreads through bites, they can be killed by destroying the brain, that sort of thing. Also, when these zombies bite and turn a person, they gain control of that person and can command them.
Max and his coworkers, and a female police officer are trying to make it through the city to each persons home to rescue family and retrieve things they need. They pick up some new people along the way and lose some too. The story ends with them completing the task of getting to the last house and getting the last of the family members who are still alive and around.

They have a few epic battles of course, and make a deal with a "smart" zombie to go their respective ways and leave each other alone. It ends with the bunch of them having to leave, but where will they go? I think I will definitely read the next book in the series since it was a decent story, but I'm not chomping at the bit to get it.
It's more of one of those books you'll read when nothing else is around. Definitely not bad, but not fantastic either. Mar 27, Caleb Mcquade rated it really liked it. This Book is very good with a lot of meaning. This book is a good moral check for what kind of position you would be in if something like a natural disaster or a zombie outbreak like in this book. This book was very enjoyable for numerous reasons involving the vast amount of details that are in the book explaining the current situations.
Just from that little excerpt from the previous sentence, you can tell that the plot will be really good. Jul 17, Nigel rated it it was ok. I really wanted to like this book as I think it had promise, but in the end it just disappointed. Unfortunately I think he tried to do many things in one go.

Apr 01, Freedom rated it did not like it Shelves: why-did-i-bother. I like the idea of the story and I like seeing the Zombies from a more internal perspective but this I felt like the writing didn't flow at all. I found myself having to reread several parts, which was almost like torture since the dialogue in this book is more than a little annoying. I only read a quarter of the book and the spelling errors were too much to ignore.
I read some of the reviews for this series and I was excited, thinking I would have stuff to read for awhile. Now I feel like I was tricked. I will not be reading any more of this book or this series. Nov 17, April rated it really liked it.www.52-zyw.com/wp-includes/canada/alianas-de-namoro-shopping-bonsucesso.php

When the undead begin to think on their own and become almost invisible. The way this book unfolded was truly believable. This book was a new twist to the old stories but the twists were even believable. You take a million people attacked all at once by an unknown and see who lives and who dies, then you take the ones who die and give them a brain to think with and change their demeanor to act like they should when they are dead and wow you got this book. Yes there were a lot of typos and gramma When the undead begin to think on their own and become almost invisible.
Yes there were a lot of typos and grammar errors. The author needs an editor or proofreader. All in all if you are not some sort of grammar freak you will like this book. Dec 18, Jenn Swanson rated it liked it. This had the potential to be an awesome story. The part about zombies developing further when feasting on humans was original, at least to me. However, there were a LOT of errors in this story that made it hard for me to get through.
Normally I am a quick reader but I kept finding myself pausing to bitch about the errors instead of enjoying the story. At this time, I am still debating on whether I want to continue this series. The first book was free but the others cost cash and I'm not sure if This had the potential to be an awesome story. The first book was free but the others cost cash and I'm not sure if I want to pay for mistakes.

It's a two star in writing, dragged down mainly by its abrupt and bounce around opening. Good premise and the story flows pretty well after the first half.
