Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
SPOILERS (general theme)
This is the story of an sudden and unexpected Zombie outbreak in a city. The infestation starts slowly but rapidly overruns the area causing residents to panic and flee for their lives. This is the story of Dave, who is at the hospital when things start to go awry and his attempt to get home to his family.
Impressions: some pros and cons...
1.) not an unusual scenario for a Zombie tale but one that was interesting and started out with some intriguing ideas and truly grotesques imagery.
2.) although Dave's desire to get home to his family was noble and understandable, the methods to arrive there stretched ones sense of believability. Some examples (without going into specific details, but please read at your own risk) to follow...
a.) the pontoon ride and the cops.
b.) the long swim in frigid waters.
c.) the ongoing confrontation with the thugs.
d.) the inability to push a boat from a dock by 4 adults resulting in the needless loss of 2 human lives at the end of the story.
This is a story where author A.R. Wise shows that he is a writer with some promise. The story of getting from point A to point B was sound...it's just that some of the circumstances within the journey were, to say the least, improbable. Yes I realize this is a fictional story, but if events occur that are not believable within the context of the what's being written, then it looses qualities that prevent it from becoming a memorable piece of fiction.
I really liked the overall story but I had trouble engaging a tale where so many occurrances were, even for a fictional work, unlikely.
As it is 2 1/2 Stars.
My first impression of A.R. Wise's work was not a favorable one, but I tend not to fall in a love with an author- it is their work I fall in love with and because I liked or loved one of their novels is not guarantee that I will like them all. With that in mind, I never knock an author off my potential reads list (unless they are like Anne Rice or some other BBA ignoramus). Since zombies are a particular guilty pleasure of mine, I thought I would give this a try. The potential in the story that is partially begun in this episode is what earned this a second star.
The problems start with the main character. We are to believe this character is Annie Oakley reborn although he has never held a gun? No. This is fiction, but give me three dimensional characters with flaws. This serial does not provide this.
I will not be continuing with this serial.
