    Worst zombie book ever?

    There are a few stinkers out there, but by far the worst I've read is Mira Grant's Feed. I'm sure I'll catch some flak for this, but I'm amazed at how many people gave it good reviews. The protagonist was boring, the plot was boring, the supporting characters were boring, and the details went on ad nauseam. I trudged through the book always expecting it to get interesting and it finally did; about 450 pages in. And that was when the protagonist died. The only character even slightly interesting was the brother (and I don't remember his name either). Any other stinkers out there that you've read?

    I still wanna at least check out the Feed. I don't wanna spend my money on it now though. Is it really that bad? Maybe it just wasn't to your particular liking, all the good feedback that series has gotten has to say something.

    The Living Dead 2 was absolutely horrible.

    I bought that shit from B&N; basically a collection of several short stories from several authors.

    Shit sucked ASS. One was talkin bout Necrophilia, another didn't even mention zombies once, it was like a bar fight where they hid the body and that was it.

    I will correct if it is no the right book- pretty sure it was Living Dead 2 tho

    I'd have to say that the biggest let down as far as zombooks go would either be Pride and Prejudice & Zombies or Monster Island/Planet/Nation series by David Wellington. They were awful.

    Brian Keene - City of the Dead and The Rising. I thought these were really bad. some of the characters i felt they were too stereotyped to pathetically bad.

    Feed wasn't that bad, it's a "Tin Foil Hat" book... with zombies, and I actually liked it. But I hated Keene's books, (I don't like fast zombies, I don't like supernatural ones and totally hate intelligent ones, and the ending... well, no spoilers here but I regreted following the series). The Becoming by Jessica Meigs wasn't that good and I coudn't stand Breaters (didn't even finish the 1st chapter). Pride and Prejudice with Zombies and it's follow-ups aren't too high on my list so I haven't read any of them, maybe they ares like Forest of Hand and Teeth, they are good books, but more like romance books... with zombies, definitely not my cup of tea.

    The Last sentence of Rise Again ruined the whole book for me.

    I am also apparently the only one here that thinks World War Z is wildly overrated
