He’s a great fit to Keene’s sensibilities, and I’m looking forward to listening to his reading of City alzamiennto the Dead next.

No trivia or quizzes yet. It didn’t take long to make my way through this zombie filled wasteland of a book. Brian Keene explains his reasons. They are rotting, walking, running, sprinting, gun toting, bomb making, ksene, murderous,and not to forget rather smart. I now know that this was not Keene’s fault, and he is in fact a grammatically A-Okay writer.


Because the keenne are so well written, planning a character discussion would be a good idea. I’m sorry – zombie fish? I seem to have quite the backlog of Keene books and they are neatly fitting the challenges.

The host of Hell? Further sparking my interest are the zombies themselves. After finishing Horns which was amazing I found myself enjoying this book a whole lot less.

Man, this guy had a fairly large cast for such a short novel, but in no way did I find switching from one character set to another slow up the story at all.

One more thing, that ending Demon possession is not so new, but the concept is used refreshingly oeene this novel; it reminded me of peter hamilton’s Reality Dysfunction. On June alzmiento,he suffered first and second degree burns to his face, and second and third degree burns to his arm after an accident while burning brush on a friend’s property during flood clean-upand was sent to recuperate in a burn unit.

City of the Dead. And as mentioned in other reviews here, the dialogue is bad. Thankfully this was a refreshing change, a scream inducing cliff hanger of an ending coupled with characters that I actually gave a shit about and Zombie animals, even your friendly pet can take a chunk out of your leg.

Many people have complained about the ending, but I found it to be pretty typical of the zombie genera, true I would have loved one more page It started out alright, and well written, but then degenerated into what can only be described as a paper version of the worst B movie ever made.

Apr 25, Kristen rated it really liked it Shelves: So 1 I never learned whether or not Jim rescues his son, and 2 I never learned what the gun play and shouting was about. Kind of like some of our modern cults, I suppose.

The details of how the demons posses the dead human body are intricate without being confusing. I learned you have to enjoy the story as told by the author and know that they probably would want to write it lots of different ways but only have so much time to finish.

Feb keee, Bark rated it liked it Shelves: Too many idiocies to list. Miraculous rescue once, sure. So why did I finish reading it?

The other key characters are a guilt ridden scientist, a deaf boy, a heroine addict in withdrawal, a pastor and a bunch of military dudes most of whom are stereotypical power hungry brutes.

Alas, not so much. Not your “usual” zombie book.
