As a new plague related to the rabies virus infects millions, America recalls its military forces from around the world to safeguard hospitals and other vital buildings. Many of the victims become rabid and violent but are easily controlled—that is, until so many are infected that they begin to run amok, spreading slaughter and disease.

While I will concede it is not the most original nor the most innovative of all horror/zombie stories it is indeed one of the most visceral and engaging. The story follows a group of soldier and unlike your regular zombie stories, you will actually find yourself enjoying where the road takes them and how their mindsets and goals progress. A good book. Definately one I suggest listening to.

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

The author of this book basicly attempts to mesh together political intrigue with an undead scenario. The final result is a predictable, unengaging story of what can only be discribed as dull. It's attempts to garner the feel of sociopolitical intrigue fails quite miserably and ultimately leads to a dull cascade of cookie cutter events to a backdrop of a near miss undead apocalypse.

Courtney Colvin was nearing the end of her teenage years when the undead apocalypse began. She survived, forsaking her youth and innocence, and five years later she continues to exist--albeit lonely--in the fortified town of Eastpointe. Nightmares and the unwelcome advances of Leon Wolfe are the worst things she's dealing with now in her otherwise mundane life.

Basicly, imagine your basic, unoriginal zombie/horror novel. Now imagine adding what can only be described as tedious teen angst to it. That is this story.

The characters are two dimensional cardboard cut outs, the plot if you can truly call it that is basic and uninspired and the lead character is about as interesting as paint drying. Avoid this, it's all I can truly suggest.
