The series is a very enjoyable read. A lot less cookie cutter than most of Kings works, and very creative. I'd say more of my opinions, but I'd hate to spoil anything for you.
Supreme Convoy wrote:I recently finished Max Brook's World War Z, the follow up to The Zombie Survival Guide. The Survival Guide is fun but World War Z takes zombie fiction to another level. It's a fictional oral history of a massive zombie war. The first third is the initial outbreak, which we've all seen in zombie movies. The second third is living & fighting in this zombie apocalypse, which is territory that we somewhat see in The Walking Dead. The final breathtaking third is the remaining humans uniting and fighting the zombies all over the world.
What I love about it is that it takes real world scenario and dumps the undead on them. What happens to North Korea, the conflict between Palestine & Israel, or developing countries. It covers everything from politics and social issues. Well done.
I listened to WWZ on audio mp3s, which was amazing considering the interview type writing, with different voices which really nailed the characters.
I currently picked up the Horus Heresy series. It finally tells the story of a paramount event in the history of the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It really does a great job portraying the betrayal and down fall, all at galactic proportions. I don't like to use the word "epic", but it's all I can describe it as.
I'm 6 books in as of last night!
