I didn't realise I'd purchased a 'zombie story'. When I started it and realised, I thought, 'on no.' The fact is though, I couldn't put it down. It was compelling. The characters really got me hooked, and the story was un-put-down-able. I totally surprised myself, it was a truly enjoyable read. Really great narration too, which helped the whole experience.

Poorly written. Badly (or not) edited.

Sadly, this was badly edited. So many repetitions of thoughts, actions, and sequences that it was hard work. I find it hard to believe it was published as it is! Baffling.

Maybe the earlier books were like this also, but I was too young and not well read? I really enjoyed the rest of the series, even though sometimes the precision of detail was a bit mind-numbing, there was always enough story to keep me interested.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say, entire paragraphs appeared to be cut and pasted, and more than once.

It's as if the writer imagines we have no ability to remember, so she tells us the same things over and over and over again. Not only from previous books - one could forgive that, as it's often good to be reminded, but from this very same book, and so often!

And, now it seems I'm doing the same!

Who was the editor? I think they should be fired!

I am so inspired to walk the wilderness. I felt connected to Sheryl often during the telling of this story. A cleverly told tale of life, love, relationships, all with the powerful trail narrative to hold it together.
