Resurrection, Michael J. Totten's new zombie apocalypse novel, dragged me in from the first page, with fast-paced, suspense-filled action and multi-layered and totally believable characters. Painting a vivid and gritty picture of a post-apocalyptic Northwest, Totten puts us into the minds and emotional struggles of a group of mismatched survivors, forced to band together for protection, even when they're on the verge or ripping each other apart.

I found myself loving and hating each of his protagonists in turns, even as they revealed secrets about their pasts, and the horrors of their situation brought out sides of them that probably would never have existed in a more civilized world. He also wrote one of the scariest passages I've read, in any horror or suspense story...so be warned if you've ever been afraid of the dark, or water...or both. I picked this up thinking I would just read a few chapters, and ended up reading most of the night, and now I can only hope (impatiently!) that there will be more to this story and these characters.

Highly recommend!

Michael, I am going to be very upset with you if you take another 20 years to write the second book. This was excellent. At first, I thought you might have bitten off more than you could chew (ha!), what with trying to combine some deep thinking with a theme that is usually an action-focused one. However, by the end I could see what you were doing and felt that it was flowing smoothly along the path you had intended. Now I have to ask, why are you reading this when you should be *focused* on writing Book Two?

as other reviewers have already pointed out, the zombie outbreak is but the background for the drama unfolding between a handful of survivors in a world gone mad. michael totten introduces us to believable characters, does elegant viewpoint changes from one character to another and by their actions and decisions allows the readers to update their opinions as the story develops. one character, initially likeable, seems set to become a really nasty piece of work...

the tension and violence reads more like a war zone novel than a horror story and that's a good thing. the threats remain credible and never become ridiculous. in fact you forget that the zombies are fiction, so much that what does come across as fiction is the vaccination attempt via blood transfusion near the end of the book.

an excellent novel by an accomplished journalist - and there's promise of more: on the last page it reads 'end of book one' !

So Zombies are in lately. They are huge... Got their own TV series... A major motion picture... Bigger than Oprah. So why buy this one? Because it is not stupid. It is a "serious" look at the subject. Not to give too much away, but it takes both sides of the story in to account. In fact, Michael brings his skills as a journalist to play with this look into our possible zombie future. The scene-setting details, the realistic dialogue... All just add to the horror. Grab this book, learn all you can, before the zombies grab you!

In the seemingly endless novels of the zombie apocalypse, Totten comes up with a fresh twist on what it means to be a zombie. I'm not a dedicated zombie novel fan, but have enjoyed Totten's writing on other cultures and particularly his reporting on war zones and areas torn by conflict. Totten brings this perspective to this novel and it adds immensely to the interaction between "others". Others doesn't apply just to the zombie, it applies to others that are competing for resources, even non-zombie survivors that may want what you have. The "other" can even grow from within your own group based on the pressures we may face. It happens in real life and Totten does a good job developing the concept while still giving us some action to keep the thrill seekers interested.

Totten blurs the lines of what it means to be human by showing how easily we can be inhuman to members of our own group despite strong relationships (not necessarily good ones) and then shows a path for redemption or perhaps reconciliation might be a better characterization.

There is obviously another novel following this one and I'm looking forward to it.

So why I did chose this book to review? actually its because of the cover (I have little experience with zombie novels, I have read three or four only) but the cover really attracted me, the clever look in the eyes of that zombie decided it for me (I thought its kind of “aware zombie novel” something like “Horde”, but it wasn’t like that.)

Basically the story talks about five survivors of the zombie turning world, it focus on the dynamic between them more than what is really happening outside, and their thoughts, and feelings in situations. The group consist of: Hughes: a man who lost his family Parker: a rude man with power issues Kyle: an excited and dreamer young man Annie: a women with a secret and there are Frank and Carol also.

What I liked about the book is the simple psychological aspect of it (we see here the reaction of traumas in human being, ethical issues going in their minds, and the group dynamic between different people in the same situation), the characters were very good made, they were kind of unpredictable and very human, and it had new idea for the plot.

Yet it did suffer from some problems in my point of view, like the simplicity of the plot(climates were ending in a simple way ), and I couldn’t see some emotions that should have been there (the anger, the anguish, and maybe a little of hate ??), and the “theory of cause” also wasn’t convincing and ambiguous.

The narrator was Steven Roy Grimsley, and he did a great job of giving each character of the story a special tone and accent that suits the personality of the character, I liked how he controlled his voice to represent the different emotions and thoughts.
