My BookCrossing Rating: 9 stars
Woohoo! Finally passed the 50 mark. Not sure whether I'll make 100 or not, but it's a goal to shoot for at any rate. :)

This was a good, quick, spooky read. The author's use of imagery really made the entire scene come to life with vivid clarity. The colors in the landscape, the way the zombies moved, it all added up to an enjoyable trip for the imagination.

I was left hanging at the end... I wasn't sure whether it was intentional or whether I was supposed to surmise the ending based on other events in the story. I don't want to give too much away for anyone who reads my entry but hasn't yet read the book, but with regards to what they would find when they reached the coast, Jack said he thought he knew, and since he knew what was going on before it happened in many other parts of the story, he's probably right here too. However, I couldn't figure out what it was that he thought he knew. Maybe it's that you're supposed to be left guessing and never really know. :)

I'd never heard of this author before Laurie shared this book so I'm interested in checking out more of his work. BookCrossing journal page for this book can be found at
