Move over Rick Grimes, there’s a new lovable, apocalyptic zombie killing dude in town! Jeremiah Reid is on a single-minded mission to find his daughter, hopefully she’s safe on Hawaii, but he doesn’t know for sure. By his side is his steadfast friend, Joe the 4th who has a penchant habit of ripping zombie throats. Never has there been such a friend since Sam, in I Am Legend. The discussions between man and dog are a part of what makes this book so great. Jeremiah wasn’t a pre-end-of-days survivalist gathering stores and weapons, nor was he in the military; he was just your normal average guy. Three years after the virus breaks out, this every-day man has managed by luck and a bit of common sense, and well maybe a little more luck, to stay alive and survive. You might ask why we need another zombie book, and the answer is: Because in Deadbreak we meet crispy-coated gummy bear Jeremiah, who just can’t help diving in to help people, and there is no need to say anymore.
I was attracted to this book initially by the cover. Although I’m no expert, it looks like an image of an Alsatian, but the dog in the book is a mix between a Husky and a Pitbull.
There are some formatting issues and a few mistakes in the book which just indicate it needs a little more attention to appear really professional. Besides that, this was a great read, fast-paced, thrilling with characters you really want to root for. I would definitely read more by Jorge Sanchez as I loved his quip filled narrative. This is definitely a 5 star apocalyptic book in my opinion.
Favourite line: If those who owed us nothing gave us nothing, how poor would we be? Closely followed by: I consider paranoia an essential survival skill.
