So to backtrack a little, I bought a copy of Shoot the Dead by Steve Wetherell yesterday, and read 80%* of it in one go, then finished it this morning. I’m not one who really likes to go and read zombie fiction, but I put those prejudices aside because I really like everything I’ve read by this author. When I read reviews describing it terms of Shaun of the Dead, Snatch, and Evil Dead, I knew it would be for me.
And Mr Wetherell certainly did not disappoint. The book moves along at a cracking pace, and is filled with great characters, great dialogue, and one liners worthy of any action movie hero. Chock full of quintessentially English banter (even noticed a “blighter” in there at one point), the whole played out in my mind like I was watching a zombie/action/comedy movie.
The wisecracking Thatcher Boys are now probably my favourite criminal duo, and I’d love to read another book featuring them.
The beauty of reading a book like this is the easy pace at which it draws me in. I found myself soaking into each line and every word, watching the scenes play out with effortless detail. In the end, I enjoyed it as if I'd watched Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as the Thatcher boys.
Get this and enjoy.
Shoot the Dead is crammed full of witty dialog, plenty of action, and is oh so British, which I love. I spent most of the time reading this book with a smile on my face and I reckon you will as well.
Not too heavy a read, but a good adaptation of normal folks accidentally getting involved with various supernatural baddies.
Definite plug left for a future sequel which I already want to read.
