Less trying to force us to believe everyone is stupid. I mean over the series nobody knows what a zombie is, and originally I was okay with this. Howe..Show More »ver, then he started calling them zombies and made movie references, including in this one where a character mentions the movie 28 days later. So if zombies are in this worlds pop culture how come not one person ever says, "it's a zombie, shoot it in the head." or words to that effect.
Same with bites that people get. They would know, or at least have concerns. Heck even if there was no zombie pop culture in this created world you'd think they may think that some virus is spreading and causing the problem, and be worried when people with bites in their group start getting sick.
I just hate every character in a book being made to look like an idiot that can't see what is right in front of their face. If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it is not a moose.
Zombie blood. A bite is fatal, but apparently you can hack a zombie to pieces, get blood and guts all over your face and not have a problem. This makes little sense, no matter how you might try to explain it.
