First things first. This is not "just another zombie book." Reading this book had me feeling like I was really there. The author is excellent at providing a good description, be it the way the ground is textured or how a character is really feeling. Not once did I feel lost or confused. Another thing I really like is that this story takes place in Australia. Which makes sense, as this is where the author is from. It just added a nice touch for me. All in all, it was a great read and I couldn't put it down.
