The Gathering Dead by Stephen Knight (Book 2011)

So this zombie book was OK I suppose. The beginning was pretty exciting but then it slowed down quite a bit towards the middle. Many of the scenes described the characters either fleeing and fighting. You kinda lose track of what is going on because they kept on repeating this same formula. After more than 5+ scenes of the same scenario it totally got old. Another thing that really bothered me was that some of the zombies retained their skills from their former life so zombie soldiers could shoot rifles and drive cars. That was lame. I know it adds to it being a different story and all but damn...it's hard to envision that for a zombie book.

I did enjoy reading through it, albeit with some reservations, but I just may continue with the series. We'll see...
