What a fun ride. This was not high brow literature, but it wasn't trying to be; it was a fun, funny, sometimes gross romp.
SpoilerI love unique twists on the zombie genre, and this was a good one.

I wanted to like this so badly… Plot was unique and scary, and I loved the explanation of the fungus “from its own perspective” - super cool. 

BUT. For me personally, little bits of humor and the “quirky” characters took me completely out of the creepiness and tense feelings of the story and just made it okay. Soooo disappointing 😞 i also really didn’t care about the 2 main characters and 3rd “main” character either. Not likable to me, and I feel like I really didn’t even know the woman at all. 

**Audiobook: Also, Rupert Friend has a great voice for narration but DANG he talks fast!! I had to slow down my playback speed twice to keep up!
