My Rating – 4/5 Stars
Who knew the zombie apocalypse would be caused by something we all know is deadly…but that is also all around us? Two stories intersect as the world delves into chaos – Earl, a drugged out heroin addict constantly in search of his next fix, and a family struggling with the dramas of everyday life, get no reprieve during this zombie outbreak. Can any of them survive the deadliest game of all – survival against undead, each other, and the world around them?
Okay.. I’m a big fan of zombies I won’t lie.. and I’ve always enjoyed books that centre around an apocalypse. The idea of humans needing to survive without things we class as essential today is fascinating to me.
This book was good.. if a little strange. The idea of mushrooms growing out of people’s heads was weird but interesting and the idea of how this apocalypse was quite good.
Two things didn’t work so well for me, one was how quick it was decided it was a zombie apocalypse… since this is only a short work I guess you can let that one slide a bit plus everything ties up at the end of the story.
Next was the use of drugs in the tale.. it was just too much for me.
I’ve given it a four star rating… I think that proves the things I wasn’t so keen on didn’t stop my enjoying the tale and its well worth the quick read
The book itself was well written so I’d definitely like to see what else the author comes up with
