I enjoy many different genres, so I was okay with the sci-fy of this book.
Yes, this book is about the walking dead but it is a different take on the normal decaying, flesh eating, mindless zombie.
This is a story about a man who is desperately trying to find a cure for a widespread infection. The zombies don't want human flesh. They are actually beautifully dead with the ability to be faster and stronger than a living human. Their problem is they can become aggressive and rage and kill whatever is in their path.
There is lots of action in this book and the author does a great job with the action scenes. You are able to follow what happens very clearly, which sometimes, if not done correctly becomes confusing in books.
There are some great emotional scenes that the author did well on also.
My only complaint (which I guess really isn't a complaint) is that I would have wanted more. The author did well at giving us the information we needed and only the information we needed in this short book. I'm just greedy and would have loved to have more.
So yes, I would definitely recommend it.
And make no mistake: John Michael Hileman's The End Came With A Kiss is a game changer. Book One of an anticipated series (titled Beautiful Dead), TECWaK introduces us to Ben, a devoted husband and father -- or, a man who had been a devoted husband and father until a new kind of plague robbed him of his family. Now, with his daughter dead and his wife an endlessly looping automaton, his mission is not merely one of survival, but of hope.
Hileman introduces us to a new breed of zombie: far afield of the rotting flesh-eaters we're used to, Hileman's parasite uses our own vanity and lust against us. The newly-minted undead are beautiful, the plague stripping away the flaws and leaving the victim clean and whole. But this is merely a piece of the plague's insidious trap: the newly gorgeous dead are still out to make more of themselves -- by offering the living a simple kiss.
So far, that doesn't seem so bad: a hot zombie makes out with you, you get hotter, and go find someone else to make out with. But, as always, there's a catch. Effectively, you are brain dead. When you aren't finding other people to kiss (or to do violence to -- oh, yes, there's plenty of violence to be done as well), your mind positions itself inside a memory, leaving your body to mime prior events in endless loop after loop.
With The End Came With A Kiss, Hileman has not only given us a new kind of zombie, but a new kind of zombie novel. He taps into fears of a different nature, even while exploring the same tropes of losing one's self and struggling for survival. And in so doing, he gives us a book about much more than the darker parts of the human condition, but about human strength as well. TECWaK is a story of loss and hope, of betrayal and redemption, of love and family, of sin and grace.
