4.0 out of 5 stars Great character development June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read all three of the Primrose Court short stories in one setting, going from 502 to 305 to 205. I don't think it matters what order you read them in, but I have to implore anyone who loves to watch good character development to read all three.

Robert DeCoteau seems to have put much thought and work into the development of "Tommy," a young druggie stuck at home with his ailing mother, who seems to have some reality issues. That's the least of his problems today, however.

I liked that these stories all tied into one another but each stood alone, as well.

For a Kindle book, this was relatively error free.

Looks like I'll have to buy Don of the Dead to get more of DeCoteau's zombie writing because when I was finished reading these books, I really just wanted more.

This guy can write! This is my third Primrose Court short that I've reviewed and there's not much else I can say. Just read these shorts and then go read his other books. Serious writing abilities!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent, but less zombie action than I'd like May 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had to keep rechecking that this was, indeed, a zombie story, as there's no sign of them for at least 40% of the story.

The main focus of the story isn't actually the zombies at all, but rather the MC, who is having a very bad day, even before the zombies arrive. This would usually put me off a 'zombie' work, but the author does such a good job bringing readers into the MC's personal life that I didn't mind as much as I might have with other works.

The writing is very well done, and the MC's struggles to deal with his mentally ill mother, employment and woman trouble were all realistically written. I especially enjoyed a hysterical exchange between the MC and a police officer that had a lot of humor in it.

Worth the read if you can keep in mind that the zombies aren't actually the focus here, though they do eventually show up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the way these stories are set up April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like these stories. They are little glimpses into the lives of people whose lives are connected by the building they live in. The one complaint I have is the editing... the wrong words are used in several places. For example, gate is used to talk about someone's manner of walking instead of gait. Other than little things like that, the stories are great!

Nice stories, but what a disappointment that is was so short! I want more!!! I really liked the concept of making you feel the story on a personal level, like it could happen. Very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great part of the series. January 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love all of the little snapshots this author has written about the people in the apartment building. I don't recall if there is a recommended read order but it's fun to notice how the stories connect and overlap. Each main character is wonderfully developed in their own story and pop up neatly in the other stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! January 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave it 5 stars because I really enjoyed both stories. They were both wonderfully creepy and gruesome. It had a little bit of humor in it as well. I was sad to see both stories end. You cannot help but want more. I recommend this book to anyone who is in to zombies.

Zombie Tales is an interesting take on the genre. It personalizes each person and makes them real. It also shows how they somehow interconnected with each other.

Yet again, a free ebook turns out to be horrible. I guess the fact that it's only 40 pages should have tipped me off that this wasn't worth reading. Read more

More About the Author

I was born in the Pacific Northwest and have lived here all my life. After 36 years of wandering aimlessly I decided that what I really want to do is write. While writing has become my passion, putting food on my family's table is a must so
I have returned to school to chase a degree in business. At my age it is better to seek a desk job than to continue with the labor that I was accustomed to. I juggle writing, school, and raising my six year old boy. Eventually I hope to become a full time writer, but dreams don't pay the bills.
I cut my teeth in the zombie genre, so to speak. I have found that most zombie stories are really just stories about people. I plan to branch out a little eventually, work my way into some mainstream horror, but zombies are close to my heart, if not my brain.
