I enjoyed the storyline and multiple sinister elements and characters. The human trafficking aspect piqued my interest and it also added quite a bit of sex into this gritty story. Lots of vividly written graphic scenes. I like books that take me to seriously dark and sketchy places while sitting comfortably and safely on my couch. The Zombie Room did just that. It is well-written and nicely edited which makes for a smooth read, albeit a dark and frightening one at times. I loved it.
Sex trafficking in a delicate subject, and Ronald handles it very well, sympathetic and hard-hitting. There is no glamor for those poor women, only fear and Ronald captures the terror of what waits for these girls in 'Zombie Room' brilliantly. You will be on side with Mangle, Decker and Tazeem as they race to save the girls from a horrible fate, that even if they survive, they will never get over. Once you have started on the journey to the Zombie Room, you won't be able to stop until you get to the end. So be prepared to read in one sitting.
"The Zombie Room" closely follows the lives of four individuals who at first glance seem distant and far removed from one another. Each living through their own life experiences (and, incidentally, sharing their own slice of hell), it soon becomes clear to the reader that these characters will not remain so separate from one another after all. As the story takes shape, and the consequences of the events that take place become evident, the result is a series of strong bonds and friendships that take form and prove most difficult to break. But just when these characters seem to be getting on fine in their newly entangled universe, tragedy strikes once again, sending the foursome down a never-ending rabbit hole of sinister scenarios that goes deeper than any one of them could ever imagine. A harrowing series of plot twists and turns that delve into the disturbing and depraved, "The Zombie Room" is not for the faint of heart.
What makes "The Zombie Room" such a splendid read is the carefulness with which it was created. Too often does the novice author overlook an important detail, scrambling to make connections where they simply don't belong. Ronald expertly defies this trend, pleasantly surprising the reader with unexpected twists and leading them to the ever-satisfying "Aha!" moment. But even more satisfying than figuring out the juicy mysteries of the story is the ability of Ronald to transport the reader into the world of the characters. Each scene is deliciously descriptive, allowing the audience to properly soak in their surroundings before delving deeper into the storyline. One could easily see this book turned into a film, or even an exciting role playing video game.
If action, adventure, drama, and mystery are what attracts you to the page, "The Zombie Room" will not disappoint. But be warned, this tale is absolutely riddled with gruesome imagery, depraved behavior, and scenes that will make your skin crawl (especially towards the last half of the novel). If you think you can handle the darkness that lays within these pages, pick up a copy of Ronald's debut novel and experience a world of horrors you never knew existed.
“Zombie Room” is an intriguing tale of ethnicity, society and the raw human instincts for life, love and survival. With his impressive talent, Ronald weaves the main characters’ and their families into a multi-generational drama that’s both compelling and classic.
There is also an edgy, science-fiction element to “Zombie Room” that reminded me of epic feature films like “Matrix” and “Blade Runner”, yet this story and setting are gripping, real and ever so present. “Zombie Room” eloquently shows how well intentioned lives impacted by actions in the struggle to survive can cause long-term heart-wrenching, catastrophic consequences.
Only an insightful writer like RD Ronald can create a great and gritty drama filled with crime, compassion and heroics. “Zombie Room” is a modern yet classic story that will open your eyes to another side of life and the power of the human spirit.
