If you like Zombie books, this is the book for you. I'm a Vampire fan and did not like the characteristics of the Vampires depicted in this book. And no-Vampires don't have to be sexy, but I don't like them mindless which is how most of them are described here. To me, that is more Zombie behavior.The beginning of the book was good. I was looking forward to the mystery evolving of the plane landing with unusual circumstances. The middle of the book was kind of boring (for non-zombie fans), then the ending was exciting.The book definitely left a typical opening for continuing the series. I read this after seeing the first season of the FX tv show. Comparatively, it was a little slower. I do really like the story and have continued reading the trilogy. If you haven't seen the show, but like monster/sci-fi stories then you'll enjoy the book. If you have seen the show go ahead and just start on book two, The Fall. I definitely recommend the show. Unlike a film where the adaptation has to be shortened and condensed, a season of 40 minute episodes really allowed the story to expand and go places beyond just the book.
