1) the realism was extreme, this is the most realistic zombie/apocalyptic book i have ever read, the way the characters react and the science behind the infection made for an extremely believable and haunting story.
2) Nathan was an amazing character and i really liked the contrast between him and Eli, the both made the story so much more complex.
3) Not only did our protagonists have to survive against the cannibalistic huskers but they also had to fight with other humans, the narratives i loved how the story developed with the narratives as it is something i could definitely imagine happening in our society.
overall, a very good story start to finish with interesting characters and plots, i would recommend to anyone who likes survival/apocalyptic/zombie books :)
FYI- I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
