I love zombie movies, zombie books, and zombie television shows like the current series, "The Walking Dead". That's why I picked up this book, to find out why there was a Zombie Day Care.

Craig Halloran has the ability to tell a good tale. Without giving any of the book's secrets I woule merely say that he puts a great new spin on zombies, something that we haven't heard before. The characters are well-defined and descriptive. I felt sorry for Nate, who never knew that saving the world would be such a burden. There are some great scenes that make the reader tense up, wondering what is going to happen next. I even cringed at the scene with the saw. Did I say too much? Halloran does a good job going back and forth between characters as each chapter unfolds, catching the reader up with what is going on in each one's life at that time.

Again, it really was a fun read and the author has a good feel for what makes a good story. If I were to offer any criticism of the book, it would primarily be with regard to the editing insofar as there are numerous misspelled words, missing words, and little details that were off. For example, the character Jimmy's name is sometimes erroneously spelled as Jimmie in the text. Did that really matter in the grand scheme of things? No, but for readers like me, it was a slight distraction.
