Rating: 4 stars

Amo builds video games and is a comic book artist who lives in New York City. When he wakes up one morning he finds himself alone in a post-apocalyptic world where all other humans have become zombies. Alone Amo fights for survival whilst searching for anyone else who might have been spared.

The Last is a bold and original zombie apocalypse thriller which is told almost completely from one person’s point of view.  Amo is a very likeable and well-developed protagonist with a wicked sense of humour, which is great for comic relief in his dark and gory journey through zombie-ravaged New York. The writing flows well and there is plenty of action as well as time taken to develop this unusual take on zombies and their origins. I felt there was a couple of moments of lag where perhaps the pace could have picked up a little, but overall I really enjoyed reading The Last and am looking forward to reading book 2 in this unique series.
