Peter Troy, the main protagonist, is sitting at home wondering where his life went wrong having recently lost both his job and his girlfriend. He is also an avid zombie fan. Who knew that on this particular morning when he woke up that all of the information he'd learned from said movies would come into play. After getting over the shock of seeing what's going on outside his door he pulls up his big boy pants and grabs his meat cleaver and decides this is what he was made for – fighting the zombie apocalypse.
Along the way he teams up with some more survivors and together they set out to figure out what caused the apocalypse and to then in turn to try and prevent anymore people from getting infected.
I have to say I laughed pretty hard when it was revealed what was causing people to turn. Its defiantly not something that's been used before but yet “the reason” is something I have always thought was evil.. What is it? – HA you need to read to find out... There are currently only 4 parts out so far with more to come. Looking forward to the showdown..
Plenty of gore through out each episode but it goes along with the story so I wouldn't expect anything less. Even though things move pretty quick your instantly enamored with the rag tag crew making there way through hordes of infected from the south to the east coast.
(on a side note … I have to say I found this author/series through M.A. Hollstein (Michelle Ann Hollstein) whose own apocalypse book Fatal Reaction: The Beginning I had recently read and loved.
Everyone has their guilty pleasures, whether it be sweets, crappy T.V. shows, or expensive manicures. Peter Troy's is zombies. Now you may not think that is altogether odd seeing as many have jumped on this bandwagon since the airing of Walking Dead, but Peter takes his guilty pleasure to obsession status. He lives, eats, and breathes zombies to the point of losing his job and girlfriend. But what seems to be destroying his life, now becomes the source of saving himself and his new friends when a zombie outbreak reaches his hometown.
Peter Troy has become my little guilty pleasure! DiBartolo has created a fun suspenseful read balanced with just the right amount of humour. Being a short story, it is a quick read, but is engaging enough to satisfy and the cliff-hanger ending will have you typing amazon.com into your address bar to look for the second part in the series before you know it!
Well done Joseph DiBartolo!
This book introduces you to the beginning of the apocalypse. Peter's been dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his job as a meat monger. He feels his life sucks, but hey, he's got an abundance of science fiction/ horror movies to keep him occupied. At least, until he spots his ex-girlfriend giving a guy mouth-to-mouth across the way... or is she?
That's when the adventure begins. The story moves fast and the action is funny as well as a bit chaotic. What lost me was detail. There wasn't a great bit of detail. There's an instance where he meets Lena, a neighbor in his townhouse complex. She rushes over because she's afraid, but they never were really neighborly... but suddenly they're locking eyes and getting jealous at the rescue of big-boobed nurses! It was odd because nothing led up to the feelings, unless it was due to apocalyptic stress.
Also, I understand why Lena listened to Peter and his zombie tactics, but she, along with others were way too trusting in an apocalyptic world. Especially with Jim and Nathan! But it was a fun ride, so I moved on to book number two! Rated: 👓👓👓👓/5 specs
