Review

Amazing edge of the seat reading material, couldn't turn the pages fast enough.... --Goodreads

Necrophobia by Jack Hamlyn was a refreshing surprise; I decided to read it when I saw that it was published by Severed Press, and once again those guys have proved they know what zombiephiles want. It all begins with a scream... --Zombiephiles

From the start Necrophobia seems like the average zombie book: slow zombies, people trying to survive, fortified survival spaces, and guns. Lots of guns.
Where Necrophobia really shines is in author Jack Hamlyn's ability to transport the reader to another place. One we hopefully will never have to see. Steve, his wife Ricki, and their son Paul live in a regular neighborhood. For the most part they have normal lives, even picturesque. Until the day that Steve's neighbor is assaulted, that is. And it's only the beginning. From there everything goes to Hell relatively quickly.
Be prepared for a new take on the fortified safe house. In this case it's a fully loaded tower with security systems and the works. It's absolutely amazing - and something that I know I would want to weather the apocalypse in!
In one of my favorite scenes, Steve is trying to save a group of women from a group of men who have a harem. In order to reach safety, Steve has to lead the women over a ladder suspended between two buildings. Below are a veritable horde of blood thirsty zombies just dying to take a bite of someone new. Do they make it? Do they fall to their deaths? Read Necrophobia and find out!

Let me start by saying that this is a great read (not just for the Zombie genre, but for books in general) - it has great pacing, a great story, good characters who are deep enough without getting bogged down in exposition fleshing them out too much, and good action sequences.

My only complaint is how the author chooses to end some of the chapters (in this book, and the sequel as well). I love chapters that end on cliffhangers and pull you into the next chapter (The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins is a great example of a book with amazing cliff-hanger chapters), making the book near-impossible to put down - and I believe that this is what the author was attempting to do in many instances, however, he often flubbed it. Instead of creating cliffhangers that pulled me into the next chapter, the author sort of gave away spoilers - take this example from the second book:

"The four of us said a short good-bye and rolled out.
If I had known what was going to happen, those good-byes would have been a lot longer."

This was maybe the 6th or 7th time while reading this book and the sequel that my mind screamed out "Dude...SPOILER ALERT!" when I hit a chapter ending. Now, instead of being dragged forward to see what happens next, I already know that trouble is straight ahead, and someone (or lots of someones) that we know will be dead very soon...total bummer!

Other than chapter endings that give away a little too much, this is a great read - and definitely worth the price...especially since it is free...and the second book is well worth the $5 that it costs!

I highly recommend both books to anyone who loves the zombie genre, or is a fan of great action/horror/military fiction.

Awesome! Starts at a run and doesn't slow down, Necrophobia by Jack Hamlyn has got the lot zombies, people trying to survive, fortified farms, and bigger guns then the Rock.
Necrophobia transports the reader into the book next thing you know your trying to think of a better way to escape but there is no way but into the jaws of a really good read. Looking forward to his next book and will update you as soon as I can, but until then lets hope our hero can keep his wife and son alive and free of Zombie infestation.

This book really offered nothing new to the genre. You have the usual zombie stuff, with all the gore and military talk. In that regards it's pretty average. What got me was how many strokes of luck the main character seems to catch. The first one is how when the main character and his family are hiding in the basement that they just happen to have an industrial sized basement freezer to block the door, or how the main character just happens to know a crazy end of the world nut who just happens to have a fortified tower in the middle of nowhere where everyone can hide out. I felt like I was rolling my eyes every few pages.

I also felt that the zombies were, well, rather odd. Let's go back to the scene where the family is held up in the basement. Zombies are literally surrounding their house with their arms reaching in through the small basement windows, the zombies know they're hiding in there, but then they just get bored and leave making it possible for the main character and his family to escape. Since when does a large group of zombies just lose interest and walk away?

The author's political biases also got on my nerves a bit. Was it necessary to write a disparaging comment on Fox News? Did the author feel like that would add something to his character building? Also the author felt the need to making a point about drug legalization, which again adding nothing. I don't care what your opinion is about either subject, but this is Zombie Novel, not a soap box. I don't know about anyone else, but when I read it's to escape the problems of the real world. I don't like having to deal with petty real life issues when I read.

I also found it weird how after the main character's wife dies how fast he's on top of her drugged out sister.
