  1. Damn, that picture was misleading. I thought its about a female sniper, that’ll be pretty cool. But its about a boy and girl duo in a zombie apocalypse. Ehh…

    1. Well, it’s from the book, so there’s at least some component of the story involving a female sniper? ;)

  2. The MC is an idiot, found myself skipping his dialogue since he is the one in zombie movies/shows that everybody hates and wish would die since they whine so much.
