Book Review: What Remains (Dead World #1) by Kay Holland

Project Fed. It was supposed to be the answer to hunger, but instead, it was the destruction of the world as we knew it. The growth of chemically enhanced "super" fruits and vegetables began in unmarked farms across the Nations, as well as their distribution in small towns. Within hours of Project Fed's first delivery and primary consumption, something far beyond expectancy was unleashed. Something far beyond what anyone could help.

Four months later, seventeen year old Max Cade is trying to survive amongst what remains of her old life. In an effort to escort an awry "Doctor" from one camp to the next, she will have to reintroduce her two young friends to the horrors beyond their shelter that she so badly wanted to shield them from. Getting there was supposed to be the easy part, but when travelling through a world of ruin, sometimes the undead have other plans

I really wanted to like this book, but I just didn't.  The title is good, that's about all.  The book is full of typos, incorrect grammar, misspelled words, and sometimes the wrong word entirely.  Ignoring that, the writing style was awkward  and choppy in some places. The characters were flat and uninteresting.  The zombies in the book are a little bit different than the usual ones you read about or see in movies.  While they were always around in the story, I felt like they could have been emphasized a little more.  What Remains by Kay Holland is not a book I would recommend.

 I give this book 1 Bookworm.
