The Village of Dead Souls Reviews
When I'm the first person to give a book a bad review I sometimes feel like I missed something, but it's not the case here.The good:- not your usual zombie story. The market's been flooded recently so it's always a pleasure to see something else than average-salary-man-crosses-america-to-save-family or former-navy-seal-takes-a-stand-against-zombies-with-a-ragtag-bunch-in-a-mall/museum/high-school.The bad:- this story doesn't seem to know if it's first degree or second. Either way, it's not enjoyable.- the mix of "fantasy" (Greek gods) and "realistic" (parasite) fantastic doesn't work for me.- the language of the historical characters makes me cringe. Just in the beginning I came across "good Callius", "Pardon me, good sir," and "you good people". In fact, the first 8 uses of the adjective "good" is to address people. What is it, Pride & Pejudice with zombies?Of course, the speaker, Promotheus (really??) does not do contractions, no, good sir.So I thought I would take the easy way and skip the passages from Prometheus' POV, since some of the novel is written from a modern-day character's POV.Unfortunately, the modern-day characters aren't much more likeable. Daniel is a nerdy scientist who's called to help solve the zombie crisis. Because he's nerdy, I suppose we're meant to identify with him. This is how he introuces himself: Please call me Daniel...Danny... Dan... Da-Humankind is fucked.Also, Daniel's wife is dying from cancer so he does what any reasonable man does and finds the time to (view spoiler)[have an affair (hide spoiler)] while also saving the world.Then there's this General, see. General Brown. He's an alcoholic. He pulls out a flask p. 29 and never leaves it. When it's empty, he just drinks from a whiskey bottle.And he gets distracted from saving the world by texts from a zombie advocate called Pink.This is the man who was chosen to solve the zombie crisis.Humankind is fucked.Basically, none of the characters are likeable, not even the zombies. You don't care if they live or die - especially since they tend to come back anyway.The final straw, though, was the piling of catastrophes. The zombie crises is not enough, no, let's throw a giant EMP and a world-wide pandemic on top of that. This felt like weak writing. A good author should be able to make the most of the smallest crisis.
If you are looking for a great addition to your zombie library, then this book is a huge must! I am a big fan of zombies and zombie apocalyptic themed fiction and the author did a great job of stirring my imagination and bringing me into the story as I read it. The author really did a great job with the story line and characters, and brilliantly inserts cliff hangers in key points of the story which really draw you in. I honestly couldn’t put the book down! The author obviously has a very creative and colorful imagination! I don’t like to give story plots away as I would hate to ruin a great read for someone else, but if you are a fan of stories that have the zombie theme, then I think you will really like this book as much as I did. I highly recommend it to everyone! 5 big stars!
Interesting twist on the usual zombie book.
