I had no idea this would be a book about Zombies. Had I known, I would have dropped it like a hot potato!! Zombies, Werewolves and Vampires? PASS. Forget it. Not for me.

I like science fiction, and based on the synopsis I was expecting a futuristic medical thriller. HA! Suuuurpriiiiise! Zombies?? Puh-leeeeeze.

I am SO glad I didnt know in advance! I am thrilled I was tricked because I really liked the story! Ultimately, it IS a futuristic medical thriller mixed in with journalism and political intrigue; a great read! Instead of being ridiculous, the zombie-element (the idea that Zombieism is due to an infection from a cancer cure gone bad) was a really interesting one it got me thinking and it did not devolve into stupid gratuitous brain-eating gore.

Having said that, the zombie-action scenes where NOT my thing and bored me completely; I hate stuff like that, I just find it dumb, but they were so few and far between, they were easy to ignore.

Im in for the sequels!
