In a Zombie Apocalypse, this is what I like to think I’d look like:
But in reality, this is what I would look like:
Unless I had this man with me:
I have to begin this review of Kennett’s book, Central Outbreak Response: Genesis, by saying that it was an exciting page-turner* that I had trouble tearing myself away from. When I bought it, I did not expect the quality of writing and action-packed content this story delivers. At the outset, Max, an college student who just got out of the military, is sitting in class when he hears gunfire. Frequent trips to the window tell him this is not an ordinary campus shooting. No one else believes that a serious threat looms in the Mall** below. As the number of hostiles grows, Max and the others realize they are trapped.
“O-Okay,” the Professor stammered. “So what do we do?”
Max’s mind raced. He’d seen the carnage on the Mall. He knew that between the roving bands of crazed students and panicked gunfire, running out of the building was almost certain death. In Max’s mind that left them with but one option.
To make the book even better, bits of humor suddenly pop up in the most unexpected places. I’d be biting my lip, trying to figure out how Max would get out of this or that situation, and I’d suddenly burst out laughing at some random joke plopped right into the middle of the dire scenario.
Most importantly, it has what I deem as a must for any book: a romantic thread with no obvious outcome.

*I read this on Kindle. Is it still called a “page-turner”? or is it a “button-pusher”?
**Back in the day, we called the grassy space in the middle of the buildings a quad.
