Like Geppetto in his story, Richey stitches classic Fairy Tales together from macabre pieces to form an overall dark and gruesome masterpiece. Only 2 pages into the first story I became an instant fan. His prose is deft and his imagery coats your brain. At a time were zombie mania has saturated the market, like vampires vs. werewolves, Richey manages to deliver something unique and it does not disappoint.
Kevin Richey has earned my admiration and respect, so in true zombie fashion: HEADS OFF TO YOU Mr. Richey!
Zombie Fairy Tales does have its gore and is certainly not for the faint-of-heart. There is a lot here to make you shiver with disgust and repugnance (think reanimated babies). Despite the physical horror Richey invokes, I found the emotional ride equally, if not more, monstrous. Simply put, a large amount of the general public are just plain loathsome. Every man for himself must have been the mantra of this fantasy world. I often found myself rooting for the zombies. And these zombies are not mindless drifters; they remember who was naughty. I suppose the moral of the story is to treat everyone with dignity and respect else they turn into a zombie and exact revenge.
Each chapter of the book can be read independently as its own story. However, each story gives a subtle nod to the previous one and they all ultimately tie together. I really enjoyed encountering characters from previous stories/chapters in other stories/chapters. For example, Hansel and Gretel are skulking around while the Little Match Girl is struggling to survive her story. It was like a gory game of seek and find.
I never thought I'd be showering praise on a zombie book.Read more ›
