July 12 - Epidemic of the Undead - P. A. Douglas

Gore, classic storytelling & an original story....

(Click Book to purchase from Amazon.com)

One of the Amazon reviews below mentioned `insatiable hunger' & I think this phrase summarises everything about this book.

Firstly, it's got gore, real gore. It all fits with the story & it's well done with a rare power. Something all zombie fans want...

Secondly, we have a highly original tale involving a singer, a band on the run & a major zombie outbreak. For zombie fans, the tale has to work & this works.

Thirdly, the writing itself is crisp & focused. It reminds me of Tim Curran's style, both he & PA Douglas merge the gore with fine creative writing - these two are not exclusive - at least not for these two guys.

Finally, the book took me about a week to read in the evenings but believe me, if I'd had the time, I would have got through it in a couple of days - it's that addictive.

For me, its key strength is that it follows a brave (sometimes) band of characters you actually begin to care about (particularly Stephanie). I also felt something for Chris as he is far from a typical hero/lead character.

Anyway, this is a fine addition to a busy genre. There are plenty of fans out there, including myself, who would like to see where this story goes next...
