I will give this book a rating of 2.5. It wasn't for me. There were parts I enjoyed but at 50-60% in I just wanted it to be over. I felt some parts weren't necessary and prolonged the story. It took too long for me to get invested/attached to the characters, almost the end 70%. I will not see the movie. Although, I am not a Zombie fan and this book wasn't to my liking, I can understand why others enjoyed it. Marion is a good writer with interesting concepts. I will recommend this book and pass along my paperback copy to my nephews. Whom I'm sure will love it.
