Friends and I, after a few drinks of course, would always fantasize about being in a post-apocolyptic zombie scenario, and what we would do to survive. To say I'm a fan of the genre would be a genuine understatement. This book however genuinely scared the bejesus out me.
When making up the rules in my own head, my idea of survival never extended beyond my own personal self. This book lays down what the world decided to do in this situation, and the unbelievable casualties that were a result of its harsh decisions. It really does put into perspective, a realistic perspective, of what would probably happen. And the idea of that is VERY unsettling. Highly recommended. Unless of course you suffer of galloping paranoia.
