<br/>as the story opens, our unnamed protagonist is sitting across the table from su young, who is eating a girl. she is tankbread- a human grown in a tank as food for zombies. su young is an "evol," a thinking zombie. while not as smart or quick-thinking as a normal human, evols rule. there is a peace treaty between evols and humans b/c of the tankbread. tankbread gives the evols a little civility and intelligence so normal humans can live side by side with evols.<br/><br/>su young hires our unamed protagonist to journey to the sydney opera house, where the geeks create the tankbread, to bring back his latest shipment of tankbread. it's a dangerous journey b/c of all the feral dead, the dead outside the cities that don't eat tankbread.<br/><br/>while at the sydney opera house, a huge hoard of zombies attack. while fleeing our unnamed protagonist runs into a young tankbread girl, who is more than she seems, and he has been lead to believe. what ensues is their journey to discover what she truly is.<br/><br/>this story has a few twists. it is mostly action as they travel across parts of australia, trying to unravel the mystery of this girl. the story is kind of predictable as it is a mash-up of different stories you've heard before: an outlaw who slowly realizes he's in love with a mysterious beautiful girl with unlimited potential, set in a world where mad max meets zombies meets soylent green.<br/><br/>what stands out most is the narration. it is really good. rupert degas reads with a believable aussie accent. his voice is easy to listen to. <br/><br/>

I liked the fresh spin on feeding zombies. I would have liked that & Adam explored a little more. I liked how the nun changed but I wish there was a chapter that bridged the two sides of her personality, it was implied and briefly mentioned but I would like to have gotten a glimpse into what happened to create such a change. A great performance! A good solid interesting zombie book.
