Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The description of how the mindless zombies pile up at the fence and are easily, routinely, dispatched feels realistic.

Con: There's tension, but no action. Sort of like reading about two guys in a slaughterhouse who chat while they work. The coincidence of Tony Robbins himself appearing and them killing him is cute, but nothing is done with it.
