I am not going to say much. Again not bad. Plenty of good points too.
No one was more surprised than I was when I ended up writing a zombie story, even though I never much liked zombie stories.
The mantra is usually write what you know, or at least, write the kind of story you like to read.
My main objection was that as antagonists go, zombies are kind of, well–boring. They don’t think or feel. Their only motivation is a desire to eat brains. It’s not even a conscious desire.
I guess I preferred antagonists who had slightly more complex motivations.
I was thoroughly surprised when I read Max Brooks‘ World War Z and loved it. But I think that’s because the global disaster in the book could have been just about anything, it didn’t have to be zombies.
