Anyone can be positive...
The tattooed plus sign on Finnegan's hand marks him as a Positive. At any time, the zombie virus could explode in his body, turning him from a rational human into a ravenous monster. His only chance of a normal life is to survive the last two years of the potential incubation period. If he reaches his 21st birthday without an incident, he'll be cleared.
Until then, Finn must go to a special facility for positives, segregated from society to keep the healthy population safe. But when the military caravan transporting him is attacked, Finn becomes separated. To make it to safety, he must embark on a perilous cross-country journey across an America transformed - a dark and dangerous land populated with heroes, villains, madmen, and hordes of zombies. And though the zombies are everywhere, Finn discovers that the real danger may be his fellow humans.
Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome meets World War Z and I Am Legend in this thrilling tale that has it all: a compelling story, great characters, and explosive action, making Positive the ultimate zombie novel of our time.

I am positive that I enjoyed this book. 😊

I loved the whole idea of positives. It Is a interesting twist on the zombie story. It's set after the zombie outbreak, there are still some zombies around. The books main focus is on survival, not just from the zombies but what is left of mankind too.

Finn wants to make a better world than what is currently around. Unfortunately he does not understand the word he is currently living in.

A few chapters may upset some. To be honest In real life these scenarios would happen. So I kinda expected it.

I enjoyed the narrator and the different voices that he came up with. It was easy to tell who was talking at any time. This did give away one or two surprises. I'd rather that happened, to keep up with consistency, than a different voice being used. Very well written and read.

Well performed well written and very enjoyable

Loved this book. Really nicely written from a believable character with some really nice twists.

In a post zombie world, people are as much of a threat as zombies.

Great great great.
