I picked up CHEMS having no idea what the books was about. I started to read it and at first I thought OH god not another sparkly vampire, zombie ripoff! I was wrong. CHEMS is a fresh perspective, and one that i really enjoyed! Seriously thought about the direction that the author had taken and I thought "this would be a kick ass movie". I really got into the book. The idea is original and well thought out. Lots of suspense and if I had a complaint it was that the story was over before I was ready to stop reading! I really hope that this is the beginning of a series. This is a great idea, well written and i would love to read more about the CHEMS. Dont miss out on this story and the authors writing. You will not be disappointed if you pick it up. Seriously a great idea and I hope someone makes this into a movie. If you are the author and reading this...sequel please?
This is the first Zombie book I've ever ventured to read and I'm so glad I did! I absolutely loved ANN SWANN's writing style. In CHEMS, Ann Swann was able to convey humor, fear and gore in a short story that left me wanting for nothing.
The way Ms. Swann wrote the thoughts and dialog for an eighth-grade boy reminded me of Stephen King's writing style in his novel Christine. She was able to transport me seamlessly back to that time in my life with the boy's thoughts and feelings. They were absolutely spot on.
I fully intend to read more of Ms. Swann's work. I have highly recommended this book to family members and friends. Even if you are not a zombie person, you'll enjoy this read.
