Review

"Ms. Harte writes with such beautiful subtlety that I really needed to pace myself reading Hungry For You... This is a brilliant collection that I recommend to any zombie lovers, those of us who like our fiction on the dark side, or for readers who love love, no matter what it does to you." --Soleil Noir on Black Sun Reviews

The stories that Ms. Harte has created takes a new approach on zombie love.
Jaidis Shaw
Like any gathering of stories, I liked some more than others, but I also found one that, I absolutely just loved, because it truly creeped me out. (in a good way.)

Normally, by the time I am finished reading the book I have forgotten what the stories where about.

What a treat! I couldn't put this book of zombie stories down, reading early into the morning in order to finish the last wonderful tale. HUNGRY FOR YOU was so much fun. I enjoyed every story, loving how unique each was, yet still focused on the zombie theme. A.M. Harte's writing was wonderfully descriptive, very visual, often poetic. Her dialogue flowed smoothly. I love how she made zombies have personalities and feelings. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends and family.

Format: Paperback
I never thought an author could combine romance and zombies, but that is exactly what A.M. Harte has done in the anthology Hungry for You. Yes, even in an apocalypse, zombies need love to. The book is a fast read at under a hundred pages, covering eleven beautifully written stories of love, heartache, and the dead rising. Over the last few years, there have been countless zombie books and movies, so it was nice to read a new take on the genre.

The anthology starts out with Promises, a haunting tale of a newly turned zombie and his soon-to-be zombie love. My favorite is Hungry for You, taking place after the dead has risen, and where there is a ZombieAide helping the dead and zombie prostitutes walking the street. Other great reads is Dead Man's Rose, a tale you will remember long after you finished reading it, and A Prayer for Garlic, a twisted tale.

I do not read many anthologies, mostly because it is difficult to review them. Normally, by the time I am finished reading the book I have forgotten what the stories where about. Hungry for You is a short read, and the stories are memorable. I recommend the anthology to horror readers, and zombie lovers.

I got this as a gift and I can only that I'm really happy about it. The way I'm reading this is by reading a story a day and today I'll read the fourth. Reason why, I want the experience to last with each day revealing its zombie goodness. Of course you don't have to like zombie stories to like this anthology if you can see the zombies as metaphors. I won't because I consider myself a geek at heart but to each their own. Anyways I don't want to spoil the stories within but I also want more people to buy this so here is what you'll find in this anthology:

You might be a zombie if you've taken a bite out of your loved one,
A case of zombie prostitution,
If you are that hungry than you can swim for it.

Are you enticed? If you are, I believe you won't regret buying this.

I loved this book! It is a collection of short (bite-sized!) stories all in some way about love and death (usually in the form of zombies). The writing style is beautiful and lyrical - the type where you just savor the flow of the words.

My favorite story was "Seven Birds"- beautiful and tragic.

Highly recommended!

Short stories are such huge teases.

Having said that, this haunting collection of short stories left me with an insatiable appetite. But, um, not for human flesh, or, you know, braaaaaaaaaaaains. Nope, I've got a fever. And the only thing that can cure it? Is more work by A.M. Harte.

Although, if you want to throw in some cowbell, that'd be nice too.

Right. Less irreverence, more review.

Ms. Harte really took Zombies to a whole new level for me. She took the mythos, turned it on it's head, and spun it right round. Multiple times. Threw them all in a box and then went way, way out of the box. Especially when you consider that the entire collection are little more than love stories.(She said, as if love stories are somehow small, fragile things she knows they're not.)

Ms. Harte writes with such beautiful subtlety that I really needed to pace myself reading Hungry For You. I could not go through the stories at a dead sprint, I needed time to let the stories simmer in, to really take in the full effect of the passion that drove the majority of the stories. It was a winding experience. I loved it!

Because these were the sort of stories I'd been hoping to get when I revamped this blog under `Fiction with a Dark Side'. This exploration of the darker side of love, the lighter side of death, the grays and in betweens.

Usually with anthologies, I like to go through the stories one by one and tell my readers here why I liked them. I'd really like to do that now but the temptation to give something away is just two great. One of the best things about Hungry For You is the subtle, yet powerful twists. I read each slowly, with awe, trying to anticipate `how is she going to do it this time', and often than not, I failed, delightedly.

But I don't care darling, because I love you, and you've got to let me eat your brains. ~ Freddy - Night of the Living Dead

"Love is horrible. It's ruthless, messy, mind-altering, and raw. It takes no prisoners. It chews you up and spits you out and leaves you for dead. Love is, you could say, very much like a zombie."

In this haunting short story collection, anything is possible--tea helps a dying musician with his inspiration for an ode to his girl, a young wife is trapped in a house hiding a form of evil you would never expect, a counterspy ponders a mission that found him face to face with a deadly virus and it's carriers and promises are kept in life and in death .

I will admit, I'm not the biggest anthology fan. Not because I don't like short stories. Moreso, because I get so frustrated when I read an AMAZING short story that should be a full length novel...I want more. There are a couple such tales in this anthology entitled Hungry For You, by A.M. Harte. This anthology introduces you to various images of passion and love in a world that is dark and foreboding. The question remains will love or the horror prevail in the end?

A.M. Harte takes zombies and breathes a bit of new life into them. I love my zombies, but sometimes they get very tiresome and boring. Hungry for Love and the tales within gave me a bit of hope that there are authors out there willing to take some chances and make some changes to the genre. (within reason - don't make my zombie sparkle, please!!)
