Well, silly me, Zombies aren't exactly the best choice for anything intellectual like a review. Let me demonstrate by showing you what happened:
Me: So did you read the book?
Me: Uh huh. And did you like it?
Me: Did. You. Feel. It. Was. A. Fair. Depiction. Of. Zombies?
Sigh. I promise to do better next time. I think it's worth another try don't you? Only next time I'll use a reviewer with an intact brain. In the meantime, let me give you my own opinion on the book.
It was a beautifully written page-turner. I couldn't put it down. The dark and oppressive feel of the ever-looming forest of hands and teeth could not squash the fire within the main character, Mary. I wanted Mary to succeed (and by succeed I mean not die a horrible death). Does she? You'll have to read it to find out if you haven't already. The sequel, The Dead Tossed Waves was just released as well and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
Was the depiction of Zombies realistic? It certainly painted them in a negative light. All they really want is human flesh. Maybe someday we'll read a book from their side of things. Come to think of it though, it might be awfully short if my review experiment is any indication...
