I am very fond about the idea of zombies and the zombie apocalypse. I absolutely like anything from games, books, or movies about zombie apocalypse. I just became a big fan of Brian Keene. I think he’s a genius when it comes to this genre.
The Rising is about the fight to survival of a father named Jim, an ex-hooker named Frankie, and a preacher named Martin in the zombie apocalypse. The world was overran by zombies. The book starts out with Jim who was at a cemetery. He managed to escape the zombies and was desperate to find his son in New York.
Along his travel, he met the preacher Martin. They went together. Martin decided to tag along to Jim and help him find his son. They were captured by the military but when they escaped, they met Frankie who was an ex-hooker. Now, all three of them were on a quest to find Jim’s son despite all the zombies and challenges that may come in their way.
I admit this is the first book I’ve read that didn’t make me feel bored in any part of it. From start to finish, it was exciting. It was just a bit frustrating that it has a cliffhanger ...
