I'll be back with a review, if the zombies don't catch me first.

This is the first review I make of a
Lets start with the graphics, they are awesome. The emotion on their faces, the terror, the blood, the zombies. They made my face twist and I really love it. It’s B&W, but I’m sure that if it was in colors it wouldn’t be so creepy. So, on the visual aspect I’m pleased with it, very much.
The plot: Imagine this. You are a cop, living your life like any other day. You get shot and end up in a hospital. Nothing unusual, right? But then, you wake up and you find yourself alone in a hospital bed. Completely alone? Well, not completely.
Your life is changed forever. Everything is changed and you don’t have any idea what happened while you were off in the hospital bed. I don’t know about you, but this plot just made me crap my pants.
I believe that the worst thing, the thing that never fails to scare everyone, no matter who you are, is simply the feeling of losing control. Humans feel save with stability and when this is gone, they shake like a little girl lost in the woods in a winter night.
Aside from this super unusual reality, the character actions and reactions are extremely believable. Even the zombies are portrayed in a unique way.
Stephen said that in his review and after I read it, I can say the he is right about that. The woman/zombie in the beginning of the book that is gashed in half and can’t even move is heart breaking. You think of her, the human that she was, in how she is suffering in a mindless and endless fate, always searching for something and incapable of reaching it.
I haven’t watch the TV series yet and never really have the need to, but this book really got my interest up a few notches.
I’ll certainly read the next to see what happens.
