STAR RATINGS GUIDE
💜 I cannot express how much I love this book, which obviously poses a problem in terms of writing a review. So here goes my best approximation. This is the zombie apocalypse as experienced with your best friends.
💛 This is a softer approach to the post-apocalyptic genre, i.e. not The Road or Bird Box. Nevertheless it has depth, intelligence and doesn't shrink away from conflict and tragedy.
🧡 Cassie, our main character, is quirky, with a dry sense of humour and good sense throughout. She makes an excellent apocalyptic guide, especially as she's read by Julia Whelan. 13 hours flew by. But then I read the next in the series. That's right. It's a series. More than that, there's a second series afterwards based on the same character family.
🤎 Think of this as a road trip with friends. Or at least the erudite, hilarious friends we'd all have in movies. Plus zombies. So, it would be like if New Girl, the TV show, was beset by flesh eating monsters. K?
