I've been wanting to read this book for a while because it just sounded so fun, and I am so glad I finally did! I really loved it!
First of all, I really liked the setting of this book. It's not every day you read a book where a good chunk of the story takes place on a bus (well, not me anyway), so really liked that originality. Of course, not the whole story takes place there. We also get to see a bit of a castle plus there is a whole bunch of running around everywhere (coffee shop, gas station, a lake-type thing...) which I actually happen to love in a book! There's something about these running-away-from-evil/survival type of stories that really just appeals to me.
I also loved all the diverse characters introduced in the story: the new girl Bobby who is actually pretty tough and brave (considering the situation), loner (yet totally funny and awesome) Smitty, your typical mean girl Alice (who I actually kind of liked sometimes), and nerdy Pete (who frustrated me sometimes). We also get to meet some new characters along the way; some I loved and some I hated.
I liked the concept of the book with the whole zombie thing and how they were made well enough, but finding out who was behind the whole thing actually wasn't too shocking for me, unfortunately. It was a little predictable.
But, overall, I really enjoyed the read and am really looking forward to reading the sequel and seeing how they deal with the zombie epidemic! Also, I really love the cover! It's what initially caught my attention!
