About the Author

Michael J. Totten is an award-winning journalist and prize-winning author whose very first book, The Road to Fatima Gate, won the Washington Institute Book Prize. His novel, Resurrection, has been optioned for film.

He has taken road trips to war zones, sneaked into police states under false pretenses, dodged incoming rocket and mortar fire, stayed in some of the worst hotels ever built anywhere, slipped past the hostile side of a front line, been accused of being a spy, received death threats from terrorists, and been mugged by Egyptian police officers. When he's not doing or writing about these things, he writes novels.

His work has appeared in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and The New Republic among numerous other publications, and he's a contributing editor at World Affairs and City Journal. He has reported widely from the Middle East, the former Soviet Union, Latin America, and the Balkans. A former resident of Beirut, he lives in Oregon with his wife and two cats.

Michael, I am going to be very upset with you if you take another 20 years to write the second book. This was excellent. At first, I thought you might have bitten off more than you could chew (ha!), what with trying to combine some deep thinking with a theme that is usually an action-focused one. However, by the end I could see what you were doing and felt that it was flowing smoothly along the path you had intended. Now I have to ask, why are you reading this when you should be *focused* on writing Book Two?

Resurrection, Michael J. Totten's new zombie apocalypse novel, dragged me in from the first page, with fast-paced, suspense-filled action and multi-layered and totally believable characters. Painting a vivid and gritty picture of a post-apocalyptic Northwest, Totten puts us into the minds and emotional struggles of a group of mismatched survivors, forced to band together for protection, even when they're on the verge or ripping each other apart.

I found myself loving and hating each of his protagonists in turns, even as they revealed secrets about their pasts, and the horrors of their situation brought out sides of them that probably would never have existed in a more civilized world. He also wrote one of the scariest passages I've read, in any horror or suspense story...so be warned if you've ever been afraid of the dark, or water...or both. I picked this up thinking I would just read a few chapters, and ended up reading most of the night, and now I can only hope (impatiently!) that there will be more to this story and these characters.

Highly recommend!

as other reviewers have already pointed out, the zombie outbreak is but the background for the drama unfolding between a handful of survivors in a world gone mad. michael totten introduces us to believable characters, does elegant viewpoint changes from one character to another and by their actions and decisions allows the readers to update their opinions as the story develops. one character, initially likeable, seems set to become a really nasty piece of work...

the tension and violence reads more like a war zone novel than a horror story and that's a good thing. the threats remain credible and never become ridiculous. in fact you forget that the zombies are fiction, so much that what does come across as fiction is the vaccination attempt via blood transfusion near the end of the book.

an excellent novel by an accomplished journalist - and there's promise of more: on the last page it reads 'end of book one' !

So Zombies are in lately. They are huge... Got their own TV series... A major motion picture... Bigger than Oprah. So why buy this one? Because it is not stupid. It is a "serious" look at the subject. Not to give too much away, but it takes both sides of the story in to account. In fact, Michael brings his skills as a journalist to play with this look into our possible zombie future. The scene-setting details, the realistic dialogue... All just add to the horror. Grab this book, learn all you can, before the zombies grab you!

In the seemingly endless novels of the zombie apocalypse, Totten comes up with a fresh twist on what it means to be a zombie. I'm not a dedicated zombie novel fan, but have enjoyed Totten's writing on other cultures and particularly his reporting on war zones and areas torn by conflict. Totten brings this perspective to this novel and it adds immensely to the interaction between "others". Others doesn't apply just to the zombie, it applies to others that are competing for resources, even non-zombie survivors that may want what you have. The "other" can even grow from within your own group based on the pressures we may face. It happens in real life and Totten does a good job developing the concept while still giving us some action to keep the thrill seekers interested.

Totten blurs the lines of what it means to be human by showing how easily we can be inhuman to members of our own group despite strong relationships (not necessarily good ones) and then shows a path for redemption or perhaps reconciliation might be a better characterization.

There is obviously another novel following this one and I'm looking forward to it.

I confess that I've been munching on a lot of science fiction pulp like a bowl of potato chips lately. Military Sci-Fi, Fantasy and yes Zombie novels. And after all that binging I have to say that this has been one of the most delicious and refreshing breaks from the usual fare that I've been gorging on. Don't get me wrong I like authors who quickly get to the point AND show me why I should care about the characters. But often it's all point and too little character development. So totten, instead of simply finding a new twist on zombie behavior and pathology (which he succeeds at brilliantly) and applying the same-old-same-old he provides complex, conflicted, imperfect characters capable of both nobility and treachery... just like real human beings. this was a very good first course and I'm in. Bring on the next course.

I have been reading Michael Totten on the internet for several years now and have enjoyed his informative and well-written articles about the Middle East, Cuba, and so on. But I never thought of him as a novelist, until I picked up this for my Kindle. I have read several zombie apocalypse/ end of the world books lately, of varying quality. This is one of the best. It was good enough to keep me interested in it, so I finished it sooner than I did several other books that I can only read a chapter or two at a time. Apparently this is the first of a series of books on the same subject, so I will be looking for the next one to come out.
