Then the zombies arrive. It doesn't matter how, and the book doesn't attempt to explain the how or the why.
It just is. And that fits the tone of the novel perfectly.
Now our 400-lb everyman has to protect himself and his wife and dog while trying to build a coalition among the diverse cast of characters living in a rundown suburban apartment complex. There's no where to run that's safer than their gated complex, so they decide to defend it.
Filled with one-liners and witty observations about our position as a tech-reliant 1st world nation, Alexander Pain gives us a scarily-accurate prediction of what a zombie apocalypse might look like to you and me, real people in real situations leaving real smears in our britches when the zombies attack.
The story centers around a group of diverse people who all happen to live in the same apartment complex in a suburb of Atlanta. Without giving away the who, what, why, where, and how of the storyline, suffice it to say there is a breakout of zombies that threaten life as we know it.
This is not your run of the mill, someone gets bitten and becomes a zombie, zombie attacks, zombie gets shot but not before biting again, and the cycle starts over kind of story. This is a fun, personality, character driven story with as much humor as death and gore. Don’t misunderstand, there are plenty of zombies and zombie fighting action, but the quirky and flawed characters and their interaction with one another is what kept me turning the pages.
Whether you’ve never read a zombie tale before, or you’re a seasoned pro reader of this genre, Zombie Complex will satisfy your thirst for good, solid storytelling.
I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.
I have no clue about guns, so it was a bit of a thrill to read this book, with the authors knowledge behind all the guns. With character characters, imaginable survival scenarios, explosive fireworks in one scene, thrills and action throughout, all of it drawing you in. A thirst slowly develops where you need more and more and before you know it the book is finished. I was so engrossed I hadn’t realized I finished until I was on the last page. I will look out for a sequel.
Highly recommended for the true zombie fans :)
However, Mr Pain’s witty promos and the book’s price at 99 cents got me thinking, “What the heck? It’s only a buck.”
I’m glad I gave the book a try..
Mr Pain gives us a likable cast of characters, credible survival info and plans, plenty of spills and thrills, and bushel baskets of humor. And while the zombies are ridiculous fantasy, the apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic scenario is well-drawn.
I’m up for a sequel. I hope Mr Pain is, as well.
A fun story, written with a good dose of humor and sarcasm that keeps the pages turning.
It's the Zombie Apocalypse...at first a rumor, then official denial, followed by don't kill them...they're sick...followed by society's collapse.
This story is written in the first person, adding to the horror. Obviously, it has an open ending. A battle has been won, but the war continues. There will be more zombie escapades to follow.
This is one author you'll want to follow.

But as rumours of a zombie outbreak gradually become fact, they prove to be smart, resourceful survivalists. It’s written in the POV of the main character, the husband, and he has quite an impressive knowledge of firearms, something that proves to be extremely useful in the coming days.
This made me laugh: “The term “luxury apartments” was an oxymoron. It made as much sense as military intelligence or peaceful religion.”
“A murder of crows” is another good phrase that I picked up. The author is very good at this, coming up with new terms and descriptions that make me laugh, in spite of how tense and gory the story is.
There’s a lot of detail and you can tell the author put a great deal of thought into Zombie defence.
Yes, it needs some editing (I’m afraid that’s always going to be one of my niggles!), and some might find the amount of detail a little distracting, but it’s an excellent read and I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who loves a good zombie story.
