Survivors. After reading Colson Whitehead’s novel, Zone One, covering three days in the lives of survivors of a plague, I concluded that being a survivor can be worse than dying. Whitehead’s prose describes the setting and the characters with literary skill, and those readers who appreciate fine writing will find much to appreciate and enjoy on these pages. I’m not a regular reader of the zombie genre, but I’ll hazard a guess that few other zombie novels display this high level of writing skills.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
