Publisher's Summary

"An intricately woven, fresh take on the zombie genre that keeps you guessing until the very end. Genre fans will absolutely love this thrilling tale of survival, and what it means to be human." (Rachel Heine, editor in chief, Nerdist)
In a thrilling debut from Nerdist, a ragtag group of survivors struggle to hold on to hope.
A widespread disease has ravaged humanity. Symptoms include animalistic rage, violent outbursts, and a ravenous hunger for human flesh. The few people left are thrust together to fight for their lives before the world becomes overrun by the infected.
Asher, Wendy, and Rico try to reach an abandoned theme park, hoping for sanctuary. Although fear of the infected is ever present, the group find themselves facing some very human concerns as well as new adversaries. Asher is Wendy's only friend, and she fears that she'll lose him if he ever discovers the dark secret she's been harboring. Reeling from heartbreak, Asher clings to Wendy as he struggles to heal. Rico is a 17-year-old rebel used to ditching school and partying all night - but can he outgrow his debauched behavior in order to protect a six-year-old boy who has suddenly fallen under his care? These three will have to overcome their own demons in order to save not only themselves but the last vestiges of humanity.

couldn't finish it

the story is good but the narrator ruins the scene the author is trying to set. it's a zombie apocalypse, things should feel intense. the way the narrator talks is very light hearted even when characters had just engaged in combat with a zombie, she makes them sound calm and almost happy. also the way she emphasizes certain words ruins what mood I think the author is trying to convey. and for some reason a normal conversation between 2 guys she makes sound sexual as if there is this insinuated sexual tension between them when all they are literally talking about is getting this drunk girl home. I might read the book rather since I do like where the story is going, it's just this narrator is terrible at conveying the appropriate mood. narrator's are a big part of making audio books good and they did not pick a good one for a zombie apocalypse.

Honest and No Spoilers

I'm 35, female, and I read a lot of horror, thriller, psychological, mystery, etc. I'm educated but I prefer books that entertain without getting too caught up in symbolism and that stuff. I hope that gives you a good basis for understanding my review. I really liked this story. I listened via audible (which makes my 1.5 hour commute to work tolerable) and I was hesitant about this book at first. I'll start with the two things i DIDN'T like (NO SPOILERS!) 1. Considering the two main narrators are men, I don't know why they picked a woman to narrate. It's kind of annoying. 2. I wish I had known that this was going to be a series. All of a sudden the book ended and I was like, "WTF?!" Particularly because I don't care for series. Moving on... I saw a lot of people post that the book was juvenile. I don't agree. It's not trying to be a literary masterpiece and I think it has a lot of adult situations. It just doesn't graphically describe sex scenes and it doesn't try to make you feel stupid (like a lot of "new classics" I've read). The style is unique, at least to me. It's well written and appropriately descriptive. And the story is definitely engaging! If you just want to be entertained and escape into fiction, this is a great choice. If you want to feel like you have a better understanding of the meaning of life... maybe go with something else. Overall, a solid zombie read and I'm definitely impatient for the second book.
