I picked up this Whitehead novel on a recommendation, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am a really fast reader, and this novel forced me to slow down. Whitehead’s sentences are loaded with information, and often use language in interesting and unexpected ways. I love that I was forced to reread sentences and think through the words rather than just speeding through.
This is, simply put, a zombie apocalypse story. That said, it isn’t action packed. Not much changes through the novel, and it’s a very small, personal look at the post-apocalyptic zombie-filled world.
