Here are a few posts I copied from the thread, it was on arfcom:
"Half way through the Return Man, and so far I'm having major issues with the guys tactics.
It is essentially a zombie book. Everyone West of the Mississippi is the walking dead, and no one from the east is allowed across the river. This guy is the sole living guy in the West, and he goes around fulfilling contracts from living survivors who want their zombified relatives put down.
His tactics are horrendous and he has narrowly escaped death half a dozen times in the first half of the book by sheer luck.
He just entered a zombie filled train with only his Glock and no reloads, leaving all of his ammo and long guns in his iddling car alongside the train. The zombies then get off the train and swarm the car, cutting him off from any resupply or egress.
Basically, save your money unless you find it on the discount rack."
"It wasn't BAD for his first book, but I can't find it believeable that a guy who has survived by his wits for 4 years would go into a train full of zombies with only a Glock and a single mag, leaving his long guns in the car.
The twist with the wife and scientist coworker was interesting,too many near misses and sheer-luck escapes."
To me, it was the mistakes and the amateurish nature of the main character that made it interesting. Too many times the characters are spec-ops delta seal sniper types that always rule the day. For once it was nice to have an average guy to follow along.
