Lacey’s and Dylan’s relationship is going through a rough patch. Lacey, the smart lesbian, wants to finish college and get a well paying job. Dylan, the sex-obsessed lesbian, however just wants to work in her dead-end job at a bar, play video games all day and seduce her hot girlfriend. Lacey thinks about breaking up with Dylan as she can’t see them working well in the future, but then the zombie apocalypse happens.
I really love zombie stories and I enjoyed that in this story the zombies were incredible hard to kill (nearly impossible to kill) but the rest of the story was just… not interesting.
Dylan and Lacey seemed quite one-dimensional for me and I just couldn’t connect with them at all. Dylan just annoyed me at the beginning and even her slight character-development in the end couldn’t save her for me. There were also no even remotely interesting side characters. I didn’t care for Dylan’s and Lacey’s relationship problems, which was a huge part in the story, but due to the lack of character development it just fell flat.
I didn’t enjoy this book at all. It had an interesting premise, but didn’t work out for me. I can’t really recommend it.
