Editorial Reviews

About the Author

David Moody is the author of the acclaimed AUTUMN living dead novels. A writer sick of square-jawed, all-American heroes and contrived happy endings, his books are unique and individual. Tried and tested horror and science-fiction themes are twisted and given a fresh perspective by this British author. Moody's characters are ordinary people - you, me, the man or woman next door or across the street - forced to survive the most extraordinary of conditions. It is this uneasy mixture of the familiar and bizarre that makes his stories such unsettling and disturbing reads.

More About the Author

David Moody grew up on a diet of trashy horror and pulp science fiction. He worked as a bank manager before giving up the day job to write about the end of the world for a living. He has written a number of horror novels, including AUTUMN, which has been downloaded more than half a million times since publication in 2001 and spawned a series of sequels and a movie starring Dexter Fletcher and David Carradine. Film rights to HATER were snapped up by Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) and Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad). Moody lives with his wife and a houseful of daughters and stepdaughters, which may explain his pre-occupation with Armageddon.

Never disappointed by Mister David Moody! One must buy now and read immediately. They don't make movies like this, too real. Although I wish that they would. Amazing characters, so raw.

First, I love the David Moody Autumn series. I really enjoy the characters and the background he gives on them. I recommend the entire series. However, this particular book, The Human Condition, I had to put down several times. It felt too real, the characters and how they would react and respond to a catastrophe of this measure. Their reactions were so real and so relevant to me that it was just a litle to real. Read Autumn, you won't be disappointed unless you need to read the word "zombie" as it does not appear in his series. Oh what the heck, read them anyway.

Having read all of the previous autumn novels; the Human Condition does not disappoint. Told from the perspective of about 50 different people, it details the end of the world through the eyes of very ordinary people, leading every day lives, and for me, that is what makes this book and the whole series in particular, most horrific.

David Moody's style of writing is gritty and personal, his glimpse into the human psyche and direct story telling style indicate to me a writer who can capture and unnearth the peculiarities of the individual; none of his characters have superpowers or big guns, but their tales of survival and humanity in a world vastly different to that which they woke up to, is chilling and frank.

Moody's world is full of weak, ineffectual cowards, charismatic survivalists and those just too stupid to even accept the chain of events that has led to 99% of the population of England suddenly dropping down dead. At times heart breakingly sad, what would we all do when we have to contemplate continuing without our loved ones? How would the average person cope with being thrust forward into a world full of dead people?

In order to achieve maximum horror; readers need to identify with those people we experience through the pages, for me, gun toting he-men who can live off the land and gut rabbits, really do not resonate with how I would behave in a world that has died. This novel, (as in the previous Autumn books), illustrates how complex the human condition is and how we as a species would ultimately react; not the clichéd Hollywood fantasy with (perfect hair) either, with pauses for romance or a good old argument, just honest, frank accounts of the human condition.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert E. Peal Jr. on September 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
This novel is available to read for free online at the author's website. That being the case will have most of you scrambling to his website to read it. The kicker is that there are three more novels in the story that you must purchase in order to read them. The first one is in my opinion so mezmerizing a story that I could not just read the first one and let that be the end of it. The story begins in a common enough way almost to the point of being cliche. Upon later character development, it becomes apparent that we are not dealing with your average run of the mill type undead. And while the cliche types of violence will kill these zombies, you will have to read on to find out if you would really want to use them or not. This is the first Series of Zombie literature that I have read that actually shows you what it is like being on the undead side looking out in a way that is serious and saddening. BUY THEM....BUY THEM ALL. You won't regret it.

David Moody, Autumn: The Human Condition (Infected Books, 2005)

Moody rounds out his Autumn series with The Human Condition, which contains a select few stories set in the Autumn universe along with passages from the points of view of a number of major and minor characters from the series. Without the plot structure of the first three novels, Moody was able to go back through the story and illuminate some of the nooks and crannies that were touched on, but never explored; it wouldn't surprise me to find that a number of the pieces here had there geneses in fan mail or newsgroup questions.

If you've read the original books (and if you haven't, read those first), you have a good idea of what to expect as far as the writing style goes. Those who've wondered about the living dead's method of killing in the novels will get their answer (no, they're still not eating people). Some character traits of people we met along the way are revealed. In general, if you read the first three, you'll want to read this one. ***
