The First Days: As the World Dies

The First Days: As the World Dies - Rhiannon Frater There is a reason this book was originally self-published, it's not very good. It is my least favorite zombie book with a female heroine. You may think there aren't many strong female leads in zombie books, but there are a lot.

I thought the characters (Katie and Jenni) were very contrived and forced. I don't mind at all that the main characters are a lesbian and battered wife, it's a new angle, but they were just too high school-ish in their petty relationships with each other and the men in the book. One minute they are crying and kissing each other and the next they are cursing and shooting zombies in the head; it seemed like a really bad action movie.
