In New York City the dead walk the streets, driven by an insatiable hunger for all things living. One among their hordes is different: though he shares their appetites he has retained his human intelligence. Alone among the mindless zombies, Gary Fleck is an eyewitness to the end of the world. From the other side of the planet a small but heavily-armed group of young girls turned soldiers has come in search of desperately needed medicine. Dekalb, a former UN weapons inspector, will lead them as their local guide. Ayaan, a crack shot at the age of sixteen, will stop at nothing to complete her mission. They think they are prepared for anything. On "Monster Island" they will find that there is something worse even than undeath ...while Gary learns the true price of survival.

There is no question that Wellington is an accomplished writer. The pace is good and the story line is as convincing as a zombie story can be. I have read both books already out in this trilogy and expect to read the third as soon as it is published.
That being said- I don't like "internet" zombies. The concept of an intelligent zombie was well handled with "Gary" and I did enjoy the battle this zombie with a working brain had fighting his new zombie instincts with the mores and culture he still remembered. But that he could exert control over other zombies via a sort of zombie "internet" almost ruined the story for me. I prefer the average zombies in the writings of J.L. Bourne.
It's still a good zombie read. I mean if you can suspend disbelief in the walking dead I guess you can accept a zombie internet. "You've got mauled!"
