An enjoyable read that really leaves in suspense. I love the zombie apocalypse. I really enjoyed book 1 and I'm looking forward to book 2.

I enjoyed the story...
Just not the narrator. There were 2 character mistakes & struggles to stay in tune.

Slow start, but was captivated in the end!
I wasn't too sure about the book at first. It seemed kind of cheesy and they were a lot of holes in the story line. I was confused about the 'crazies' vs the 'zombies', but I'm so glad I stuck through it! About a quarter of the way through it started getting better and better. It's pretty convenient that the main character has martial arts training and a prepper grandfather. Sometimes I like it when they develop and become badasses throughout the book.
Some things kind of irritated me though. I think it's an obvious in the zom-poc you want to be as quiet as possible, and sometimes them making noise like they do doesn't make sense. Smashing glass when it isn't necessary and shooting their guns when they don't need to.
I also got really irritated when she did the typical 'guy tries to tell girl something romantic like and they get interrupted right before he says it' thing like TWENTY TIMES! I mean, I love a little cat and mouse for a while, but it started to get annoying.
Overall though it was a great book. They ending was such a cliffhanger and had me frantically searching the internet to see if the other books are out. Needless to say, I will be buying them and finding out what happens. I definitely recommend this book for the zom-poc/thriller lovers like me. Just stick through the first hour or so and you won't regret it!
As far as the narrator goes, she was okay, but one of the characters , Podrick, is supposed to have an irish accent and he didn't have one at all. It was kind of weird when they kept talking about his accent and the narrator didn't attempt it. Other than that, she wasn't too bad!!
