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.Read more ›
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!
