Here's the thing. Zombies are not my monster, and I'll admit that the fact that I don't like zombies probably colored my response to this book. However, there are zombie novels out there I enjoy and so that can't be the only problem I have with the book.
The bigest problem I have with the book is that it goes nowhere. For all the travel in the book, the emotional plotlines don't go anywhere, and at the end of the book we are no closer to an end of the zombies or an end of humanity. It's the book equivilent of a quick haunted house, and honestly not that spooky.
