I gave up just a few chapters in. After seeing the movie trailers, I thought this would be humorous if not LOL funny. When I reached the part about zombie school where they were teaching the children how to kill, I decided it was too depressing for me. Thats what made me quit watching Walking Dead after the first 2 seasons. Back to SciFi, Fantasy, and/ or Romance for me, I guess.
