This is the case with "Blood Soaked and Contagious," for sure -- but I bring it up more as a note to the reader: do NOT go into this book with any preconcieved notions about what you "should" be reading, or you'll miss a pretty darn good story. Had I been the author, I would perhaps have centered the story around vampires instead, or even just used a term with far less cultural baggage, like "Ghouls." But for all that, simply accepting the term used by Crawford, and forgetting the Romero canon for the duration fo the story isn't all that difficult. And it IS well worth doing.
Crawford has created a fast-paced, exciting, and hilarious piece of horror-laced science fiction, with all the blood, guts, romance, ninjas, and commandos you can stand.
Overall, I really enjoyed Crawford's humorous and inventive take on the genre. The story follows Frank, a "professional" zombie hunter in an apocalyptic world being slowly dominated by the undead. But unlike the zombies of old, these creatures have intelligence, speed, and claws - making them even more formidable than their shambling literary cousins.Read more ›
An imaginative new "take" on Zombies and how to kill them. Engaging, heroic and likeable characters that I cheered for and the writing style is very like Robert A. Heinlein (my all-time favorite author since I was ten years old!)in the way the male and female characters respect and interact with each other! I LOVE that!
The action never stops and I found myself holding my breath a lot!
The repartee between the characters and the quirky chatter in the hero's mind is very entertaining and kept me laughing through the bloody, gory parts!
However.....CLIFF HANGER Ending! Must. Have. More.........!
Yep, I'll be buying the sequel as soon as it's available!
The book is told in a narrated format, with the main character, Frank, talking directly to the reader. Frank's internal voice is cynical and sarcastic, and chock full of personality. In fact, ALL of the characters are so diverse and unique and they practically pop off the page! The dialogue was easily my favorite part of this book, with a back-and-forth banter that is stuck somewhere between clever and silly. I found myself highlighting constantly, so many quotable quotes! I would share them all with you guys, but some of them are NOT appropriate for our underage readers. ;)
Did I mention that this book is for mature readers? Besides all of the required blood and gore, there are mature themes, language and sexuality. This book is not for the faint of heart, or the easily offended. Frank is constantly giving euphemisms for his privates, such as "Don Quixote, Sancho and Sancho", or the "Three-Course Gourmet Feast". The sexual innuendos are GOLD!
Now for the downside, because every book has to have one. It was a little long, with some tedious descriptions of tactical maneuvers which were unnecessary.Read more ›
