Reading progress update: I've read 105 out of 303 pages.
Plague of the Dead - Z.A. Recht

As far as zombie apocalypse books goes, this isn't bad -- but I don't know if I'd say it's "good" either.


There's a lot of unnecessary scenes that don't really add anything to the story. A couple of the characters are interesting, but some are flat-out annoying.


The good thus far:
-- Action is described well, without becoming bogged down by military jargon or technicality.

-- Two or Three interesting characters thus far

-- E-Mail presentation ( in the beginning ) to describe the outbreak was interesting, even if only because I don't see it very often.


The Bad:

-- Typical zombie apocalypse. There's only SO much that can be done in one genre, especially THIS genre, but still.

-- Pacing. At times there's good action, or good characterization, everything is flowing well, then BLAM! Massive detour to pointless scenes.

-- Villains, aside from zombies, aren't believable. At all. They're just "Generic Bad Guy #1389711."

Current UNFINISHED rating: 2.5 / 5. So we'll see if the book picks up any.
