Unfortunately we do not get to see what happens initially after the dead rise; there is no account given of the night of "the party." Instead we skip forward in time and pick up the plot weeks to months later in what is essentially a prolonged survival scenario. A group of varied, but still fairly typical, college students cluster together as zombies bang on the doors.
The author gives the reader brief glimpses of the different characters going about their lives at college before the zombies rise. We get to see their personalities in both conditions, under the pressures of college, and under pressures of being at college and trapped in one hall of a dorm for months on end by walking corpses who desire nothing but to consume fresh human flesh. Overall though, the characters and their motivations seemed to be a bit simplistic, and much of their discussion sophomoric.
There is love, heroism, selfishness, and insanity - all on a collegiate level. The majority of the book is really about what is going on inside this dorm. It actually has little to do with zombies as anything other than a plot device, which could have as easily been some form of illness, natural disaster, nuclear war, or other dangerous calamity that would keep people locked inside long enough to start to crack.
The ending was abrupt.Read more ›
Fort focuses on a band of kids trapped in a dorm building during an outbreak, and getting just as hungry as the zombies. Flashbacks are injected to further develop characters and establish how they all ended up at the same place at the same time. Even so, the main focus is on the current predicament of the characters and how each one reacts to the situation, which leads to a zinger ending.
Just like Asylum, Fort is a fast read—you might even say a feeding frenzy for fans of the undead—and could easily be part of a longer collection of short novellas that take place during the same zombie outbreak. Will we ever find out how the epidemic began? Will we ever learn if it’s squelched? We’ll just have to see. Now that Gunnells has two living dead tales under his belt, perhaps he’s working on more.
