About the Author

David Moody is the author of the acclaimed AUTUMN living dead novels. A writer sick of square-jawed, all-American heroes and contrived happy endings, his books are unique and individual. Tried and tested horror and science-fiction themes are twisted and given a fresh perspective by this British author. Moody's characters are ordinary people - you, me, the man or woman next door or across the street - forced to survive the most extraordinary of conditions. It is this uneasy mixture of the familiar and bizarre that makes his stories such unsettling and disturbing reads.

If, like me you loved the Autumn series and it been years since you've read them, then you'll probably love this book of short stories. Autumn was the second Z book that I'd ever read, and it launched me on this insane quest for the best zombie books. Autumn was the series that stuck with me over the years. It's final book was so horrifyingly relentless and so heartbreaking, that for me it set the standard. I've read some excellent Z books since then, but Moody still stands above the rest. It was nice visiting this world again. Reconnecting with some old loved and hated characters. It also reminded me that it's about time I pulled the books out again and revisit what I consider to be the finest zom/poc series ever. Yep, I'd highly recommend this book.

First, I love the David Moody Autumn series. I really enjoy the characters and the background he gives on them. I recommend the entire series. However, this particular book, The Human Condition, I had to put down several times. It felt too real, the characters and how they would react and respond to a catastrophe of this measure. Their reactions were so real and so relevant to me that it was just a litle to real. Read Autumn, you won't be disappointed unless you need to read the word "zombie" as it does not appear in his series. Oh what the heck, read them anyway.

As usual from Moody a great read. He can draw the characters to life as good as any author I have read, and his stories have a great tempo. This book really closed the autumn series out great really hate to see it end, but I look forward to reading the next direction he takes as he has stated that he is leaving this style of stories.

Having read all of the previous autumn novels; the Human Condition does not disappoint. Told from the perspective of about 50 different people, it details the end of the world through the eyes of very ordinary people, leading every day lives, and for me, that is what makes this book and the whole series in particular, most horrific.

David Moody's style of writing is gritty and personal, his glimpse into the human psyche and direct story telling style indicate to me a writer who can capture and unnearth the peculiarities of the individual; none of his characters have superpowers or big guns, but their tales of survival and humanity in a world vastly different to that which they woke up to, is chilling and frank.

Moody's world is full of weak, ineffectual cowards, charismatic survivalists and those just too stupid to even accept the chain of events that has led to 99% of the population of England suddenly dropping down dead. At times heart breakingly sad, what would we all do when we have to contemplate continuing without our loved ones? How would the average person cope with being thrust forward into a world full of dead people?

In order to achieve maximum horror; readers need to identify with those people we experience through the pages, for me, gun toting he-men who can live off the land and gut rabbits, really do not resonate with how I would behave in a world that has died. This novel, (as in the previous Autumn books), illustrates how complex the human condition is and how we as a species would ultimately react; not the clichéd Hollywood fantasy with (perfect hair) either, with pauses for romance or a good old argument, just honest, frank accounts of the human condition.

have read the entire Autumn series, and loved every book. It is not your typical fanfic type of zombie story, and the buildup is slow (not in a bad way), but as you go through the books and read the points of view of the different characters, it all tells an horrific but compelling story.

This book was offered to the Ministry of Zombies in exchange for an honest review.

Firstly, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a limited edition hardback of this book and let me tell you it is one fine looking volume. In an age where cheap e-books rule, it’s a beautifully made real book with no expense spared.

Secondly, if you are a fan of the Autumn series then this is an absolute must. I didn’t know what to make of it when I first looked at it. There are loads of short stories – some almost vignettes – all set in the Autumn world. I wasn’t sure I was going to get on with it as it’s not a straight novel.

I dipped into a few of the short tales. Pretty good stuff. I picked another because I liked the title – it filled in a major blank for me about what happened to two main characters between the books. Another answered what went on in the bunker. I carried on like this for a week – picking up the odd tale and just enjoying it.

Then I read Joe and Me – that tale is one of the most important in the whole series of books. No spoilers from me but this collection is the perfect end to this series.

If you loved Autumn, get it. If you can get this limited edition hardback. If you don’t know the Autumn series – read it – it’s the best UK zombie fiction out there.

I can’t really recommend it any higher than that and you can probably imagine, I spend a lot of time thinking and reading about zombies!
