I loved this book, though I wish the ending was a tad bit different. This book does contain some more adult situations, but it fit well with the characters and the story line. The story flowed smoothly and was very believable, not some cheesey book that makes you go really....who thought of this? Loved it and will be getting the prequel and hoping for a sequel too.

I loved this book. I always get annoyed when editors don't find grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. But this book was so well written, no errors, and even a few words that I can add to my vocabulary. It is definitely not for children and there's more to this book than just what was shown in the movie.

What an adorably touching zombie story! I'd seen the movie so I knew what to expect but read the book because you know the books are always better than the movies. On that point I was not disappointed.

This narrative delved deep into the thoughts and primal neurological instincts driving "R," the main character. As he became more human, so did his thoughts, speech, and vocabulary. Marion weaved that into the story nearly imperceptibly. He also rounded out the characters well, including the minor ones, like "M" and Nora.

I grew close to R while watching his strong, kind nature suppress his violent, biological urges. I loved that sweet zombie. He ranks right up there with Stony Mayhall when it comes to zombie love.

*****************spoiler below*****************
Most intriguing about the story were the powerful last thoughts of R's to which we are privy. The message I inferred was: we can beat down our violent natures, our nastiness and cruelty, and make that difficult choice to be kind and good and full of love to others; that's under our control. And once we master that, we become complete human beings and we become the cure we seek. Just beautiful.

Very fun take on a zombie novel. I quite enjoyed it.
