Sort order. You had to know I was going to rate my own book. Already working on book 2. View all 12 comments.

I didn't read any reviews before purchasing this book Zombie books are like catnip to me so I just took a gamble.
Now that I've finished it and read some reviews, I'm glad that I'm not the only one who feels creeped out by a sense of misogyny and racism in the novel. I totally get that rapes and plunder and mayhem and slaves and all manners of horror occur during wars or collapsing civilizations or just on any day in a major city right this second.
I get that women would and do trade sex for I didn't read any reviews before purchasing this book Zombie books are like catnip to me so I just took a gamble. I get that women would and do trade sex for survival or have sex forced upon them. But in this story the women are always being white-knighted and the men are always finding their inner white-knight. I'm not even going to touch on the creepy racism vibe with the Cassie character. The author cries foul against the accusations of misogyny and racism in this book but if enough random readers are commenting on those topics, then there's further dialog to be had IMO.
Then the sex scenes. I'm no prude so sex scenes don't make me flinch unless they feel randomly inserted ha! Stilted and contrived. Further, this needs an editor. It's not the worst Indie book I've seen but there are plenty of spelling and grammar errors throughout. Finally, I know it sounds like I hate this book but I don't. It's by far not the worst in the genre and I'm hopelessly addicted to Zombies so I'm always stoked to read a new Zombie book.
However, there are better ones to read. Hell, if you like the genre but want something not as mainstream, try Keith Blackmore's Mountain Man series. View all 6 comments. Jul 27, Andrea rated it it was ok Shelves: audiobook. The author basically says if a reader has described anything as racist or misogynist more than once in the last six months, if a reader is "easily offended", then this is not the book for him or her. The author claims to write about reality, but apparently he doesn't believe racism and sexism are problematic in our society.
The overall sentiment seems to be, "If you are some PC asshole, don't buy my book"--and I wouldn't have bought it though I don't consider myself a PC asshole if Audible had included this caveat in the book's description--the only reason I purchased it in the first place was because it was part of a two-for-one offer. I'm going to give it a chance but that intro pissed me off and left me with a very negative first impression of the author. I did end up listening to the entire book but. The writing is awkward and there are many grammatical errors.
There are tons of cringe-worthy descriptions--like, "her nipples defied her clothing," I'm paraphrasing--I think the actual quote was worse when talking about a teenage girl, and the sex scenes are appallingly bad. I also find it incredibly unlikely that people would have time, energy, or motivation to focus on high school-ish romances in the wake of an apocalyptic event.

Martin's Press, End of the world Ready for the apocalypse? But there's a difference between using it in the name of realism or to make a larger point and using it with the same sort of smug attitude of a cat that just took a shit next to the litter box and feels proud of itself for doing so.

Alongside the fine zombie make-up, these here are what works for this one although there are a few flaws to the film.
Dec 09, Doreen rated it it was amazing. As per usual with a Peter Meredith novel, deep characters and plot drive The Apocalypse and for this I was happy since I have never been much into zombies books. I was afraid I was going to find my self knee deep in endless descriptions of blood and brains and gore. Or have my head swirling with the details of the different types of guns used to kill the millions of undead wandering around America.
Instead I happily followed along after characters who gradually stopped being characters in my mind As per usual with a Peter Meredith novel, deep characters and plot drive The Apocalypse and for this I was happy since I have never been much into zombies books. Instead I happily followed along after characters who gradually stopped being characters in my mind and became people. This is what makes the story a five star rating to me: the fact that I was so drawn into the lives of the people facing a horrible new world. Each faced it in their own way, some for the better and some definitely for the worse, yet each faced it as a real person would and not as a cartoon character.
The story itself I think was relatively straight forward for the genre: a secret russian military virus, left over from the old Soviet days, unleashes zombie hordes upon the few surviviors, who scramble in the ruins to live. After my previous two attempts at reading zombie books were placed on my DNF shelf it is my guess that people who love zombies may find The Apocalypse less compelling than people who just love a good book. Jan 22, Thia rated it it was ok. Too rapey. If not for the wussy way the women were written and the extremely graphic abusive sexual content - this would have been an interesting group of survivors to follow.
The excuse is always given that women WOULD be reduced to sexual objects and treated badly post apocalypse. In a zombie infested world lots of man parts would be ripped off and chomped on too.
Male gen Too rapey. Male genitals would have a pretty rough go of it either on the victims OR the zombies. Soft little bits that are external and barely attached It would be penile mayhem. Creeped out yet? And yet I can only think of one book Tufo's where this has happened.
Because men would find these repeated fantasies - I mean descriptions - so distasteful and disturbing it would turn them off to the rest of the book. I'm stunned that it continues to surprise authors that women and hopefully most men would find women being reduced to their sexual parts and LOONG descriptions of their abuse equally unentertaining.
By the way, all the women who are cops or in the military or just rural rednecks who had guns before they could walk would just give up, beg men to protect them, and join a harem?

Now I've read a lot of the negative reviews about this and while what they say is true, it's a post apocalyptic Zombie book so it's not going to be all flowers and roses. It's going to be brutal, it's going to portray people and indeed the military harsh, but if times of strife and war have any indication, a lot of this is how most people would see things.
During bad times, bad people will do extremely bad things. I didn't see anything too bad but that's just me. It's going to be a harsh world s Now I've read a lot of the negative reviews about this and while what they say is true, it's a post apocalyptic Zombie book so it's not going to be all flowers and roses.
It's going to be a harsh world so bear that in mind when starting it! Other than that, it's a good Zombie tale and one that grabbed me.
