I really liked the end. The last line followed by “The End” was literally my favorite part of the book. The beginning, however, was torturously slow. This may be my cut-to-the-chase pacing preference, which makes it impossible for me to get past the first few chapters of LOTR (Tom Bombadil needs to die, for serious.), but I was extremely relieved when zombies finally started eating people.
As with any zombie novel worth its salt, The Longest Road has lots of shooting, close calls, sad of-all-people-to-die moments, and plenty of rotty-faced zombies. Also, with any good zombie novel, the suspense-filled carnage didn’t stop 'till the very end.
Likes: Zombies, no one is safe, the humor, lots of shooting, zombies, believable dilemmas and solutions, and zombies.
Gripes: Slow to start, the author has a habit of telling not showing and stating the obvious.
