This novel contained an absolutely genius concept but I really struggled to sustain my interest in the story itself. Its just so run of the mill it was difficult to care about the characters or what happened to them.
The Genius idea was that Death itself (i.e. The Grim Reaper, complete with scythe!) comes back to tackle the shambling undead menace! Ive never come across a zombie idea with such an original angle. Its a real shame the book failed to live up to that.
