This is where it begins. This is where the end of the world begins? She wakes up alone and feeling like she's half-dead. She can't remember her name. She staggers outside, looking for help--and that's when she sees that the dead have returned to life, that zombies are running in the streets and devouring the living. And she's one of them. She isn't breathing. The zombies leave her alone. Because they know she's one of their kind. And yet she differs from the brainless ghouls around her in some crucial ways. Somehow she's kept her intelligence intact, if not her memory. And being dead has certain compensations. She has developed strange powers. She calls herself Nilla, and all she knows is that staying alive only gets harder after you die? Meanwhile the National Guard has its hands full with the worst epidemic ever to strike the American west. From California to Colorado every town, every city is being overrun. Captain Bannerman Clark isn't prepared for this. He's semi-retired and he hasn't fired a gun in years, not since the Vietnam war. Yet it seems there's no one else around to take charge. As the world we know collapses he must find in himself the brains, the guts, and the moral courage to lead the survivors to safety, if there's any to be had. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, shadowy players are just beginning to show their hands. There's more going on here than meets the eye, and Clark and Nilla both have parts to play in a game they can't comprehend? … (lisätietoja)

I started the Monster trilogy by David Wellington a number of years ago, so I wasn’t sure that I would remember much about the story. Luckily Monster Nation, which is the 2nd book actually takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse so it didn’t matter that my memory of the first book was lacking.

This prequel looks at how the world became overrun with the undead but the author’s complicated explanations really didn’t help, as I felt the author got bogged down in political, medical and religious aspects. A few new characters were introduced, but overall this was rather a mundane zombie story. Having one of the main characters as a zombie who still retains a certain amount of her humanity was interesting at first but I quickly became bored with her when she started experiencing super-powers such as invisibility and mind reading.

So far the trilogy has been a 50/50 proposition. I really liked the first book but felt this second one was mediocre. I plan to pick up the third book later this month, and I am hoping that it is more of a traditional zombie thriller. ( )

Kind of lame… the first one was good till this dude tried to put on all the “spiritual” crap… then this one did the same thing… it started so good! And then bang! The whole spiritual crap! I want my zombie books to be crazy zombie mayhem from beginning to end! This one only has it at the beginning! So a 3! ( )

Awesome series on the dead rising all over the world !! Highly recommended ! ( )

I was excited to start this book, but I was very let down shortly into the book. The book was all over the place. Characters would randomly be in different places with no explanation on how they got there, one minute you were reading about a character being at a prison in Colorado, next minute was outside a hospital in CA. Geographically confusing.
Main characters I did not care about, pretty much just 3 major characters in the book. 1 was semi interesting, the other two bland and boring. ( )

Even though this was written second in the series, I chose to read this one first because I knew it was a prequel. I really enjoyed this book. It was my favorite in the entire series, mostly because Nilla was my favorite character. She is awesome. I kinda found myself wishing she was a good guy all the way through but I still loved her. Got just a little confused as to what the source was and why it was causing so much havoc. Oh, and definitely could do without the druid guy...I didn't care for that part of the story in any of the three books.

Overall a very entertaining read. ( )
