If you are like me you have a strange addiction to zombie, apocalyptic, and dystopian books. While I make myself leave the genre, I have a wish list full of books. Also if you are like me, you have read the easy titles like all of Mark Tufo (more than once). Often I try a new author and I get a lukewarm book or more infrequently a terrible title that I return. But occasionally a book surprises me. I have to admit the character premise in this book was not that appealing to me and I had left it in my wish list for a while. But after my last two very forgettable reads I said what the heck. What a Great Surprise this book turned out to be. It was fun, believable in a fun fiction kind of way, and I like the characters. I only gave it a 4 on story, because I am a character development junkie (Tufo, Stephen King etc). I am hoping that Mr Simpson fleshes out the personality of his characters more in the next book. He has an excellent base with this book, and touches on some military humor and relationships, but I crave more to really become invested with the characters in a story. But if you like the genre this is a fun romp. Just purchased the next book in the series and I am looking forward to starting it now. On a side note the epilogue made me chuckle.

Would you consider the audio edition of Zombie Road to be better than the print version?
No! But it complements it and brings the characters to life with the different voices.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Gunny is my favourite. I love his commitment to his fellow war vet's, truck drivers and family.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene with Long Dawg, when he does his thing with the gun! Awesome!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Vet's v Zombies!
Any additional comments?
This is one of the best Zombie books I've read, it is a MUST READ!

The title of this nearly put me off but as a die hard zombie fiction fan I gave it a go and actually really enjoyed it.Likeable characters you actually care about,the whole how the virus came about is not one I have come across before either.Give it a go.
