If I remember correctly, in the novel the zombies weren't just Romero-style shamblers, but the zombie apocalypse played out even slower than in the Romero universe. In Brooks' world it takes a year or longer from the point when patient zero is discovered before the world really starts to fall apart, while in NOTLD it takes just two weeks from the first zombie incidents before shit starts hitting the fan. Of course in the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake it takes less than forty-eight hours.
