STAR RATINGS GUIDE
If the TV show Prison Break was set twenty years after a zombie apocalypse.
🧡 There’s a lot of good stuff here. The idea that the zombie virus can be dormant is a good one. I also liked the ways in which the younger generation couldn’t imagine life “before” the apocalypse.
💜 I’m about to say some stuff. Stuff that makes it sound like I didn’t like this. As a hardcore zombie-ista, I did. If you like zombie apocalypses, I recommend this, if only for its inventiveness.
🧡 Main character Finnegan starts off a bit too naïve, but I liked him, especially as he progressed. However, he’s the only character I really came to know. There are supposedly strong bonds formed in the course of his journey, but there wasn’t enough development of them.
💚 The tone and action in this were neither extremely dark (Wool by Hugh Howey) nor contained a spark of joy (All the Stars In the Sky by Sarah Lyons Fleming). I felt like it needed a nudge in one or other direction. I especially found the section in the camp a bit flat.
