TRatA has the best opening scene I’ve read in a while, and probably the best zombie introduction. The whole scene is great.
Zone One is not your typical zombie apocalypse novel. Sure, there are zombies (obvs), and there is the killing of zombies (obvs), but Zone One is more about nostalgia and longing for a city that will never be the same again.
Back in 2013, when sj still had her book blog, she started Zombruary. It’s exactly what it sounds like — reading zombie books in the month of February. It didn’t take off in 2013, mainly because she wasn’t impressed with any of the zombie books she was reading. In 2014, she tried again, and that’s when I started joining her.
