The first pages of this are intense. Very intense. Little fingers...wow took my breath away. I was a little worried when it started to resemble a Romero movie while they are driving through the collapsing suburb. But the author totally owns up to that...so we are all good there. Plus Romero=zombie awesomeness. Duh! The action never stops, the protags are likeable and the Zombies are actually called...Zombies. Yeah!!! The fort is a believable set up to wait out and survive the zombie apocolypse. I totally lost it over this book and am now going to read the sequel!!
