Cataline Recommends: The End of the World as We Knew It

The End of the World as We Knew It by Nick Cole

This is a great Zombie Apocalypse book.  I enjoyed it immensely.  It is much better than, the Walking Dead.   And for that matter it is drastically better than, my own, Dark Winter.

This will be short as reviews go because I am assiduously avoiding any and all spoilers.  The set up for this book is that a researcher one hundred years after the Zombie Apocalypse, has pieced together a story that took place during that holocaust.  The story itself is divided up into three different first person perspectives.  The first is a woman who is at ground zero at the start of the ZA.

The second is of a man who has survived the first wave of the zombie attack and is now trying to make his way in the aftermath.  Think of him as the guy who has made it through the Dawn of the Dead and now is dealing with being a survivor in a world where he has no knowledge or training to survive.

Third is that of journalist, years after ZA has ended who, although he doesn't know it provides both the climax and end of the story.

It's on KU but at three bucks it's a hell of steal.   Buy it!!!
