its a zombie apocalypse in the uk. the first book is basically escaping London. the writer is clearly not a prepper but there is some good points.

I've read that series, I'd say 6.5/10 and I have to wonder if I'd be that generous if the subject matter was not of interest personally? :?

We've enjoyed them, and he's a really nice guy, happy to chat with folk on his FB.

He's got another series, set in a post apocalyptic UK which isn't bad. And he wrote one called Work Rest Repeat which isn't bad, and has promised to write a follow on too.

ive just finished book four. i like the way he uses the fact fuel is gone instantly we've all seen the fuel strikes. unlike the walking dead where there still driving around in what must be a good five years after the apocalypse. im sure fuel loses potency after about a year.

just got the first 2 books on my kindle, but I gave up on the walking dead after season three however I'm still watching Z nation which for some reason seems more of a laugh with serious story lines
