Reviewed at Amazon, 1 May 2014:
This story is given 5 / 5 stars because I could not put it down. And because it does not have zombies. I liked the way the author interwove the characters’ stories, and the characters themselves were engaging. I’m no expert in geography, but the directions were sometimes confusing (waves from the equator rolling down the coast of Australia from the North East after hitting New Zealand, but still hours away from Japan??), and there were a few little typos – but this did not diminish my enjoyment of the story and the way it was told. I think this would be an awesome movie, and I can barely wait until the next instalment is released.
