It’s not just Denmark’s problem anymore. The zombies are spreading, and it hasn’t even been a week.
Following on from Day 4, the action continues to centre around Mille, Dan, Holger’s bunker and the rest of the characters.
Mille is headed for Sweden, but with her stepfather infected, can she notify authorities in time to save everyone on the ferry?
As Denmark’s borders close in a futile attempt to stop the spread of the undead, Dan and his traveling companions plan a way to escape the country.
Birgit and her son, Dennis, don’t enjoy the security of the bunker for long as more people arrive looking for shelter.
With so much to contend with, will anyone live to see Day 6?
I love this series, but I struggled to get into the book. The first half moved between a lot of characters that I found annoying and unlikable. Not to fault Clausen for this, lots of people are annoying and unlikable, but as a result, it failed to engage me from the start as the other books have done.
The world has woken up to what is going on in Denmark, and while I liked how current real world events have influenced the author, I was frustrated by how many characters thought zombies were sick people that could be cured.
These separate threads do come together in a satisfactory way in the second half of the book, and while I was still irritated by some of the actions of the characters, I enjoyed how the plot escalated towards an exciting denouement.
As the undead are now making their way across Europe, I couldn’t help but wonder if they will make it to Ireland in a future installment, and what might happen when they get there? Being an island would probably bring no guarantee of safety. I look forward to finding out.
I award Dead Meat Day 5…
