I picked this book up while visiting the Women and Children First bookstore in Andersonville (Chicago neighborhood) based on their recommendation card and I'm so glad I did! IIRC, this book is for "fans of the zombie apocalypse, Joss Whedon's show Firefly (and movie Serenity), and badass kid heroes" (or something along those lines) and I was not disappointed by that description. I had not heard of this book until browsing their SciFi section but it's apparently already been made into a movie that is being released in the UK (where the story is set) later this month! M.R. Carey is, it seems, better known as a comic book writer and that fast-paced tone carries over here. I really enjoyed this story, especially since it was a very unique take on the normal zombie apocalypse scenario. If anyone else has heard of this, let me know so we can discuss and I'm happy to lend my copy out! ( )

Really good post-apocalypse sci-fi read. Well written, intelligent, with some exciting, gory scenes, really quite a thrilling climax, and a poignant conclusion. ( )

A unique and intriguing take on the zombie apocalypse.

I'll admit I'm the tiniest bit disappointed-- at the very start of the book I thought I was going to get a Never Let Me Go-type take on relaying worldbuilding information to the reader, but it ended up being a little more conventional than that-- utilizing multiple perspectives, giving away information about the world more freely, and turning into more of a standard "zombie roadtrip" novel. Not a terrible loss, as I found most of the other characters compelling as well (especially Cardwell and Miss Justineau), but I would have been fascinated to see a story purely from Melanie's perspective as she learns about the world and tries to understand the emotions and thoughts of the adults around her.

That being said, the first part of the book was great, eerie and enthralling. The second part, on the road, was a good mix of contemplation and action. And I love love love the way that the story resolved at the very end.

Makes me want to reread Zone One. ( )

This is what a zombie book should be. There's real depth to every character, even the ones that grunt like animals. This was made into a film which was also decent but didn't capture the same depth of inner turmoil. If you're not a zombie book fan this may still appeal to you. It reads much more like a dystopian, end-of-the-world, psychological thriller than horror. ( )

An interesting take on the concept, and the interactions between the characters was really believable. This felt a little like a novelization of a Left 4 Dead playthrough. I think it needed about 20 more pages to flesh (ha) out the ending, though, it felt a little rushed. ( )

One of the more imaginative and ingenious additions to the dystopian canon.
