You know there is actually a cure for zombie-ism. You are sitting rolling your eyes a bit there look at this thinking something like this aren’t you. Nothing can cure that damned thing. Okay, maybe you are right – mostly. There are some mornings in particular that from the moment I get up I’m moving in autopilot as if I’m in some sort of daze. Everything seems to be moving at the speed of molasses in mid winter up until about 6 am when Starbucks opens where I work. On those days I long for that cup of hot coffee like you wouldn’t believe. It’s the morning miracle if you will. The wonderous caffeine and whatever other drug the girls at Starbucks add to my drink wakes me up and help shed that morning zombie effect. There must be something to this you see since half of the store is all lined up waiting in a semi-comatose state for theirs too.
Alright, so maybe I haven’t dealt with a true Zero Day but Thanksgiving and Christmas almost qualify if you ask me with all the people freaking out while buying their last-minute turkey or ham. Thank goodness they weren’t like the ones in my most recent read by Bobby Adair that went total cannibal. For someone like me that doesn’t read a whole lot of books about the end of the world events precipitated by zombies this book was really pretty good. I’m no stranger to the whole apocalypse idea like in these books as I have read a fair number of them over the past several years in particular. This one did a good job setting up for a larger adventure that will probably send Zed and co through the grim setting of a burned city full of zombies.
To be fair this wasn’t the best book I have ever read, but it left me wondering what was going to happen next. So, in other words, Adair accomplish his goal I suspect in setting the hook with an ending I didn’t see coming to the first episode of the story. I won’t say much beyond this since this blog isn’t about reviewing books as much as writing about what I happen to be reading at the time. I will suggest if you can’t handle some language and some gory moments then maybe this isn’t the book or series for you. Personally, I don’t mind it so much if there is a point to it as in this case – killing them blasted zombies.
