Rise of the Dead is a zombie novel with a lot of guts that aims for the brain, blending literary fiction with post-apocalyptic thrills.
Blake was never one for taking chances. He lived in a world of formulas and equations. A statistician in a controlled society where everything had become predictably mundane. That world disappeared the day the dead got up and began attacking the living.
Now, the end is here. Blake finds himself fighting for his life in a world that is rapidly spiraling out of control. He struggles to keep himself alive and must risk everything to find his family.
Along the way, Blake finds himself thrust among other unlikely survivors. Together they must adapt to the realities of the undead world, or join the legion of zombies. The characters must overcome their conditioned human apathy and come together if they have any chance of survival.
Rise of the Dead chronicles the first moments of the zombie apocalypse. While the story is a fast-paced thrill ride through an ever-growing zombie horde, the novel aims to draw upon familiar themes as those found in the Romero classic films.

Excellent addition to the zombie genre!
I loved it! As a lot of you zombie fans know, most new zombie books fall flat.....very very flat. This one though, was really good. I hated to see it end and am hoping this is the first in a series. The ending does have closure, which is satisfying, but a second book can easily pick up where this one ends.
The narrator was great!
I have nothing bad to say about this book. I hope there there's more to come of this story.
Romero zombie fiction, done right
