Not everyone in our book club liked or even finished this one, but there was lots to talk about. It was a departure from the usual genres we read, and a good one.

  "Lord of the Flies Meets Walking Dead" by catzpawz00 (see profile) 11/12/19

Never thought I would say that I enjoyed a "zombie" book. I guess this is a case of "never say never." I watched the movie just before reading the book. It is very good, as well, and I enjoyed both. The movie brought to life what these characters could look like and it haunted me from a psychological standpoint. Which means that it's a good read for those who like horror or thrillers. I found the ending of the movie more powerful than the ending of the book. I think the book should have gone on a bit more to describe how trapped and lonely the teacher, Ms. Justineau, felt. I also liked that the movie left out the romance of the book. Not really a romantic and more of a realist.
