I love zombie books and I really wanted to like this one.

Usually I love books about zombies. I don't want to give anything away about the novel, but there was one or two aspects about the book that I just couldn't get my head wrapped around. If you enjoy books that seem to have a redeeming quality about them get this book you will enjoy it. However if you just like your zombie material more on the graphic level this book just might not be for you. Citing this I actually read the book in one setting the narration was very engaging and captivating if the narration was not so excellent I probably would not have finished the book.
I received this book at no cost for a honest review

Gritty, real, and a total surprise

I've read a lot of post-apocalyptic "zombie" novels. A lot of them follow the same cadence. Most of them even follow almost the exact same script. The Last couldn't have been more different. The first part of the book isn't even about the apocalypse, it was about Amo's life trying to get used to daily ticks and issues related to a coma that he was in. I honestly would have read a book just about Amo and his everyday dealings.

Because Amo was so well written and explained, he will probably be one of the most memorable main characters I'll read for a while. He was just so likable in a raw and flawed way. He's broke in so many ways, so it was easy to relate to him no matter how you grew up or what's happened to you in life.

The story itself could have been a few shorter books that I would have gobbled up after reading the intro. I couldn't believe the amount of story that Grist was able to pack into The Last. Amo's backstory, Amo's coffee shop experiences, Amo's first days of survival, Amo's killing fields, Amo's trip and realization, Lara's escape... I could go on and on. There were so many mini-plots going on that I would eat the pages up.

The next sentence could be perceived as a spoiler, and I'm going to try my hardest to not spoil it completely. Even Amo's realization and subsequent interactions made this book totally different than any other zombie post-apocalyptic book I've ever read. That in itself made this book totally unique in this genre.

Overall, if you've read this far, you can tell that I loved The Last by Michael John Grist. I looked up the series to see if there were more and was quickly surprised to find that there are 6 or 7 books. But series-haters -- you can just read this book and be happy. Another thing that can't be said about a lot of books in this genre. Grist actually writes a full story arc with a conclusion and everything.

I received this book as a gift, this has not affected my review in any way.
