The First Days (As The World Dies: A Zombie Trilogy #1) The First Days by Rhiannon Frater



This trilogy is what started my reading zombie stories phase. I have always liked after disaster stories and the title of this one made me think that's what it was and it is sort of. It just has an unlikely cause of the end of the world. I found this trilogy to be fun to read. Very quick, fast paced. I was pleased that all of the really strong characters were women. The main women had a strong bond to each other even though they weren't a couple. Although people with disabilities were all in the background, I did like that they were at least mentioned. It feels good that a few of us will survive the end. :-)

I like her concentration on the nuts and bolts of surviving in such a world. Love that sort of stuff. The third book of the trilogy gets much more metaphysical which I think weakens it. Even though the metaphysics are pretty matter-of-fact not very woo hoo.
