As I read this book I could see the movie playing in my head and it was a movie that I'd like to see someday.

The description for this title may be direct, but it certainly sensationalizes the events.

This book is truely chill inducing! Mr. Gouveia has a way with words! Unlike most horror/fantasy authors that bore you to death (no pun intended) with minutia, Keith heads straight for your jugular. As I read this book I could see the movie playing in my head and it was a movie that I'd like to see someday. It's a great character study with the two teens Barry and Shawn, how their friendship changes over the course of the book, how quickly their lives are changed for ever and of course the ending. The decription of the zombie attacks really keep you on the edge of your seat....or in my case the edge of my sofa. Even though it is a story about a zombie outbreak it is totally believable and it's definitely not one of those books that you put down and forget about. Once I finished it I wanted to read it again. Keep your eye out for Keith Gouveia I know I will!!

I just finished Revolt of the Dead. I really liked this book... finished it one reading, which I've never done before. This short novel is one heck of a page turner. I don't want to dip into the plot that much as I'm not a fan of 'spoilers', but reading this brought back memories of the 'Return of the Living Dead' franchise - before Rave to the Grave. It had a very '80's' feel for me.

I can't express how much everyone should take the time and read this work. It isn't the longest book, but it definitely packs a punch for its size and can't imagine why anyone wouldn't like it. I mean, who wouldn't want a magic book that brought back the dead? I would. Man, the fun I would have with that thing...

Needless to say, I'll be picking up anything with Mr. G's name on it. He has definitely proved himself a talented writer and GREAT storyteller.

GET THIS BOOK! It deserves a spot in every 'genre enthusiast's' library.

Of all the books and stories from K. Gouveia I've read, they've all had one problem... They're too compelling to put down, thus forcing me to neglect everything else so I can finish the story to find out what happens next and how it will end!!!
Obviously that is not a bad thing. Gouveia has a very interesting writing style that brings you into the world he creates, immersing you to the point you feel that you are in the story yourself and feeling the pains, joys and angst involved with the characters.
Gouveia's Revolt of The Dead follows along with his addictive style of storytelling. I enjoyed the "twist" he spun in this ever-so popular theme. The "oops" manner in which all the zombies come to life is great!
The character development for a short book is nice.
The technical knowledge throughout is nice also (I'm big on that).

Is it all believable? It's a book about friggin' zombies - whadaya think? But!, the way Gouveia explains the circumstances of each series of events and situations? Absolutely! It's spot on!
Good job!
I don't give it a five because, although the proofing in this book is the best I've seen from him thus far, there were other nuances in the book (personal gripes at best) that left me saying WTH?! But then I had to also remember that this is book one of three, and there is so much more that can, and I'm sure will, come.
A definite good buy, leaving me anxious for the following sets.

Revolt of the Dead? Not really. A novel? Certainly not. Just dividing a literary work into chapters doesn't keep it from being a short story, one you'll put away in a few hours if not before becoming bored by its trite underpinnings.

A tale of two borderline-outcast teenagers who discover a book of dark magic who "get in over their heads", you won't find a cliche of the genre that that the author doesn't embrace. The worst of it, of course, is we're not dealing with "traditional" zombies here, we get another supernatural tale. In this case the "zombies" are actual dead people brought back through the book, and while they behave as they often do in these stories, it takes continued use of the book to raise more of them rather than the zombies spreading a disease or something else through their bites. So this is no "revolt" of the dead as pretty much they come only to the beck and call of "magic".

The description for this title may be direct, but it certainly sensationalizes the events. Some of the rest of this paragraph may be spoiler-filled, but it's hard to talk about this book otherwise as it is so short. Basically starting as a Halloween party prank, one of the two friends uses the book to raise the dead in a cemetery, though more than anticipated rise and kill one of them--though not really as the first use of the book was an "invincibility" spell that they think must not have worked. Following this, Barry, the surviving member of the duo, treks across Florida to the "safe zone" as of course the immediate government response is to set off a nuclear device while herding "survivors" at a distance from the explosion. Barry meets a few people and there is some fighting with the dead, but it's over pretty quickly and there's a final confrontation and then a joke of a denouement.
