review 1: Rot and Ruin was something I picked up due to a love for all things zombie. It was not quiet what I expected at the start. Benny lives in an almost "post, post apocalypse" he lives with his older brother Tom who is a zombie hunter. As Benny struggles to find a job or lose part of his rations he is forced to swallow his pride and dislike for his brother and pick up the zombie hunter title. Their society seems to be well structured but quickly falls apart the night of a terrible storm. Once Benny finds himself out his settlement I felt the novel pick up an feel more like the zombie literature and titles I am used to. The truth is the novel is thick but it reads so quickly. It does not waste anytime and before you know it the novel has come to a close. The way this novel was ... morewritten and gets to the point helped me read it quickly. The novel developed characters but also stayed in the "here and now". I do not normally say a novel is like a movie on paper but this novel is the best example I can think of. Even the "slow" parts are exciting and kept me flipping quickly through the pages. Overall I plan to pick up the rest of the series and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an exciting read.
review 2: Wow, if you enjoy reading books about zombies and survival, this one is for you. I absolutely love The Walking Dead. This book is similar to this series and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It also teaches very important lessons and values that are apparent through the story of the two brothers who lost their parents to zombies and how they have adapted and survived in the new rot and ruined world. There are a lot of parts that prove family is thick and rooted, and much about the sick ways of people in general. The book helps you see how a post apocalyptic world can still be respected. I would recommend this book in a second and look forward to reading the rest of the series. less
