One of the reasons that I liked this books was because it was a pretty short read. So for someone with a busy schedule, it would be perfect. I also loved the book because I felt that it had a good mix of horror, zombie action and romance. I think that the book realistically portrayed what the world could be like if a zombie apocalypse occurred. I also liked how complex the characters were. It was really easy to feel angry and sorry for R at the same time. I really liked the plot for the book better than the movie, as well. There was more depth to the storyline.
I was so excited to see this movie! I will not say that I was disappointed, per say, but I did think that movie could have been better. There were a lot of parts where I thought that some background music would have been nice, because watching zombies walk at a S L O W pace gets old after a while. I also felt like everything seemed unrealistically easy in the movie. I felt that the characters should have had to struggle a little bit more, instead of having everything fall right into place. All in all, it was an entertaining movie though.
Overall, I will have to say that the book WINS! It had a believable plot and complex characters.
But go see for yourself and tell me which one you thought was better 🙂
