In the end....I'm so angry I wasted my time!
on October 3, 2010
The rising...The City of the Dead...I really liked these stories. But, it fell so short in so many ways. One by one, people you think are important in the stories die off. In just almost sideways glances in the story. Ooops, there goes another one...and when some died, I couldn't really remember who they were, what they did, their significance...exct..cuz they just kept showing up then getting cut one by one.
Yet, impossible things keep happening, and the characters keep moving on.
I kept reading, waiting for something new...to bring hope to the story. And was very dissapointed.
Someone said this writer was compared to Stephen King. That is a JOKE. Stephen King is the master. He creates stories the wind around itself, the characters are built and created and loved in the end. When the characters died in this story, it was like, oh well, closer to the end...
It was an interesting and different take on zombies, but I prefer the original, slow, stupid zombie over this bullshmidt.
