The First Zombies

ZOMBIES.  Doesn't that word just warm your heart?  While I am not a huge fan, when offered a short chapter on the finer points of the living dead I think to myself, "Why not?"  That's how I wound up reading The First Zombies by Josh Atkins.

David, Mark, and Gina are just regular college students--playing video games, ordering pizza, and horsing around.  That is, until a news flash falls across the television informing them to stay inside due to a "virus" overtaking the area.  Suddenly the trio finds themselves harboring fugitives, fighting zombies, and doing what they can to just stay alive. 

At only 30 pages, this story was fun and made me giggle.  Zombies do that, you know--make me giggle.  I appreciate that Atkins got right to the point and didn't drag out the story of the trio.  There was exposition, zombie attack, resolution.  I thoroughly enjoyed that.  The only thing I would have liked to see more of was the relationship development between the trio.  Other than that, this was a nifty little read.
