I just picked this one up. I love zombie novels and I really liked Monster Island. Has anyone read this one ?

Nope, but looking forward to your review, as Nation is on my "Next books to buy from Amazon" list.

I'm going to try to not include SPOILERS...just know that anything I thinly mention happened in the first book, so I assume you read that one and I'm hopefully not ruining anything.


I will try to keep things vague where I can.




I've just finished this and Monster Island not too long ago.

It's a great read.

It goes back to the start of the zombie outbreak, and follows a "special" person. (and I say "special" because I don't want to spoil it for you)

It shows some moments referred to in Monster Island.

What strikes me as stand out is the fact that it shows the zombie outbreak, with all it's confusion and hysteria.

That really appealed to me - but what lost me (and this was a nagging thing about Monster Island to me) was that there was a "cantral force"... and that there were higher developed zombies and telepathic links.


The ending felt rushed and completely abrupt - but at least we will have the third book to look forward to.


I hope you enjoy it.

Cool, thanks.

I'll be reading it after Heart Shaped Box. When I finish Ghoul.

Ghoul is incredible. A coming of age story that has a ghoul in it.

Haha

Well, don't feel gipped if it doesn't have a lot of the Ghoul in it.
