What one would not expect is the history behind the utter collapse of society; the unfortunate truths that make this story so believable. And my god, what a twist it was!
When you read this, there are definite moments where you cringe and think, ewww. But let's be real, a zombie apocalypse isn't supposed to be a clean story. There are no laws any more, you don't know who to trust, and all of the 'acceptable' interactions between humans are out the window. This book is written so you know exactly what sort of blood, guts, and other unmentionables are being grabbed, hacked, or ripped apart at any given time. It is wonderful, really, to have such a vivid mental picture from a few strings of text.
I found myself getting so wrapped up in reading that I stayed up until the early hours of the morning, compelled to find out what would happen next. You know a book is good when you sacrifice precious sleep.
Well done, Mr.Wolff! Looking forward to the next one. 🤓
I'm going to make this short and sweet, to save my stomach.
This is, perhaps, one of the goriest books I've read. Not because there is blood and guts everywhere, but because of the skill of Steven's writing and the way he integrates the reality and surrealism of the situations within this book.
I'm not normally squeamish. I'd rather read about gore than watch it on TV, but this one had my stomach turning. I think what made it so effective, was that the Re-Gen zombies were 'self aware' and therefore you had human emotions concerning cannibalism (if they'd been alive) and all the troubles, fear and uncertainty of a zombie apocalypse.
Stephanie was an interesting character, but I found myself more drawn towards Valerie. She was one tough cookie and she accepted her new life.
I won't go into spoilers or my favourite parts; you'll just have to read it, to pick some for yourself.
(P.S. The only reason I took so long to read it, was because I took ill over the Christmas holidays and this book made me nauseous enough that it wasn't a good idea to read it, especially while I had a fever.)
This book gives new meaning to Zombies. The characters in this book Stephanie and Brittany were so flawlessly written. The ride was so intense that I was on a emotional roller coaster. Mr. Wolff breathes new life into the age old regular "Zombies" that we are used to. His writings put you into the skin of the characters and the smell of the surroundings. I was so drawn in on this storyline that when I put the book down I expected the surroundings from the book to be what I saw. I was very disappointed that it was just my house.! There is nothing old age about his writings. I will admit that some of the book was very descriptive and gory but it's what happens when you are writing realistic horror. Zombies and Gore go hand in hand. This was not a "stale" read and kept my interest at every turn of the page. I didn't feel like this was a seen it, read it before story. He kept the characters fresh, he kept the storyline going without "rest areas". His main character Stephanie could have been my neighbor she was so realistic. It is hard to get a writer these days that can keep you interested from start to finish. To keep you guessing all the way on who the bad guys are. Every scene was different than the last and every turn made your heart race. I am elated that this is a book series and I get to go on more roller coaster rides. This is one ride that is worth every penny and worth the wait. I would love to see this as a movie or a television series.
I'm giving Self-Aware five stars because I enjoyed the time I spent reading it. That's what I read a book for - enjoyment of the story. And Mr. Wolff told a GOOD story. It was compelling, it pulled me in, and he made me care about the characters. Sympathizing with a zombie, even! Who knew?!?!
I also think that Mr. Wolff did an excellent job of putting a fresh spin on a genre that has become dominated by The Walking Dead. That's what an author writing about zombies is up against. And most authors (or TV shows) are focusing entirely on the trial and tribulations of the survivors of a zombie apocalypse.
Who ever gives thought to what the zombies have to deal with? No one but Mr. Wolff - and he did an awesome job of it!
Join Stephanie as she goes on a journey to find her family, understand what is going on with her body and come to grips with the fact that she must kill, or become the mindless creatures that cover the world.
If you like dystopian novels, vampire books, or (of course) zombie plots, then this book is a very entertaining read.
Thank you Steven
Fresh twist is right. Not your typical zombie tale, Unique , Imaginative .
Great job at giving the characters depth and personality .Action packed.
