My favorite two there are Dead Sea and Conquerer Worms. Dark Hollow and Ghost Walk, which are closely connected with characters in common, are okay but not great. Ghoul is the only Keene book I really didn't like. Just fell flat to me, the character's didn't come alive, and seemed more formula. The Rising I liked a lot, but those kinds of zombies might not be for everyone.

Thanks FE, that's so helpful. Kind of helps me want to try again, maybe with Dead Sea.

I thought Ghoul was okay, but Conqueror Worms was better.

Again, late to the party, but I just recently read World War Z and thought it was wonderfully done. The whole structure of the novel just really worked for me, hearing about the war from all these different voices. It had a documentary feel that gave it real scope, while also making it feel personal. Highly recommended.
