A couple of the characters develop, but most of them are static.

When a character was in a bad situation you could guess almost exactly what and how things were going to happen.

I REALLY loved this book, even at 666 pages (yep, you read that right - 666).

It seems that lately the zombie has become a sort-of poor man's monster, what with the amazing popularity of vampire-centric shows/films like "True Blood" and the "Twilight" series. I myself prefer zombies and recently zombies have exploded in the literary sub-genre of horror as well as in a few decent films - "Zombieland", anyone? Why are zombies so scary? Well, they USED to be us, they want to EAT us and they are sometimes nearly impossible to destroy. The latter is the case with the zombies in über-writer Tim Curran's latest, the epic "Resurrection".

As is usually the case with zombie tales and films, a secret government experiment has gone FUBAR, releasing a series of toxic chemicals into the air over the north Wisconsin city of Witcham. AND the weather will not cooperate - it has been raining and raining for days with no signs of letting up. And the flooding all of that rain causes is destroying the city as well as the city's cemeteries. Screwed up government experiments + unearthed cemeteries = things are NOT going to be going well in Witcham.

There is one thing I found especially creepy as well as wonderfully original and gross with Curran's take on the zombie: his zombies are completely animate - if you chop one up, the parts ARE STILL LIVING and trying to get to you - i.e. disembodied hands crawling for you, legless torsos dragging themselves relentlessly to fresh meat, decapitated heads managing to scream and get around (*shiver*). Curran has even added a strange little store in the city that is like a carnival's freakshow - I will leave it to your imagination as to what happens when the abnormal fetuses and punks are released into that toxic miasma.

For a 666-page book, Curran balances his characters pretty well.

I am a huge zombie book fan and was very anxious to read what Tim Curran came up with as far as a zombie novel. It was a fantastic book! These are not your typical mindless zombies that walk around looking for fresh meat. These zombies are smart and know how to get into your head and bring out all of your weaknesses. The story was so intense I could not put it down. There were so many creepy crawly things in this book that you will sleep with your lights on after reading.

There is one character that is very nasty, bloated and gooey that will make you cringe. I don't want to ruin it for you but if you are a zombie fan you must read this book.

Please, whatever the good lord above may throw at us, don't let it resemble the world Tim Curran has created in RESURRECTION.

First off, managing to keep a story well-paced and interesting for 666 pages is a feat in itself. The fact that I couldn't put it down was entirely another. I have a lot of respect for the typesetter managing to nail down on such a specific number, and for Tim for making it worthwhile despite the lack of sleep I suffered from reading it through the nights.

I really dug the atmosphere Mr. Curran created with the driving rain and rising floodwaters - it's a motif I haven't seen in any other post-apocalyptic fiction involving the walking dead before. I felt it was an interesting fresh take on the subject, and certainly one I hope never to experience. Not many survival guides out there having working knowledge of the topic, so reference books may effectively be shot if this ever comes to fruition.

Takes a little getting-into, but once you're hooked the hook sets deeper than you could imagine. Expect to miss a couple days work with this one.

When I first saw this book on this site, I didn't know what to think. I didn't know a whole lot about this author even. Still, it looked like a good book so I just went ahead and bought it. I'm going to be frank and say that this is probably the most disgusting, disturbing, and horrifying zombie book I have ever read.

The plot of the story is this. It mostly centers around a guy named Mitch who tries to find his step daughter, named Chrissy. He's got a friend who helps him out named Tommy Kastle. Real funny guy. I wished that he was the "main character." But anyway, the city that they live in is suffering from constant rain. It's causing alot of flooding. Combine this with a disasterous military experiment which is causing the dead to rise from the grave, and you got serious trouble. The whole city pretty much becomes a flooded graveyard. Zombies are roaming around everywhere and killing people while the city is flooding. The fact that the zombies are thriving in the flood adds to the "creepiness" factor.

Also, I like to point out that there are ALOT of characters that you will meet as you read this book. ALOT of them die, and not very pleasantly. For one thing, the so-called zombies in this book are not ordinary zombies. They try to mess with you, telling you about your private secrets and all that stuff. Some of the zombies that are talked about are disturbing, like the clown. That guy freaked me out! These zombies are cruel and sadistic, as well as intelligent. What they do to the numerous characters that are introduced are pretty disturbing. Sometimes I felt like putting the book down because I was so grossed out and disturbed, but I continued to read on and actually managed to finish it.

Highly recommended for zombie fans, but it might not be for everyone. The content may be a little too much for some people. I enjoyed it, however.
