A Dead Horse Named Caleb Reviews
Absolutely riveting read! This sequel to Confessions of a Red Neck Zombie Killing Psycho was even more amazing than the first! I love the continuing development of the characters as the first book was an introduction to this group and to Hank--who is even more deranged in this book. Although, I really enjoyed the insight into Hank and his thought process throughout the story. Just as the first one, it is a short, action packed and intriguing read. Once I pick it up, it is difficult to put it down until it is completed! I love the twists and surprises that the author makes sure is well placed throughout the storyline. The ending was the best! Can't wait to read the third one!
*I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*Buck, Tammy and Denny have managed to escape from Hank but he is determined to track them down and make them pay. Armed with weapons, a zombie horse, and a series of evil plans, Hank will stop at nothing to get his revenge. And there are still the zombies to worry about...Lets start with the good things in the book. I liked the whole idea of the zombie horse and how it was encouraged to move forward. Caleb was interesting and unexpected though I expected him to feature more and maybe bite a few people with the title of the book being about him! Hank is a good character, like a pantomime villan so it was good to see him getting a decent amount of coverage, along with his twisted plans. The zombie attacks as always are satisfying and well written with tension and gore, and of course the zombies manage to mess up everyone's plans, as would happen in real life. I also liked the twist when the gang decided to hunt down and kill Hank. You had a feeling that it was going to happen with the groundwork that the author was laying but it was nicely done and sets up a good cliffhanger.Erica was a pretty annoying addition as her judgement was sorely lacking throughout. Despite Hank's less than enthusiastic welcome, she is suddenly debating a relationship with him almost minutes later, then changing her mind about him every 5 seconds. She reminds me of the typical dumb female in a horror film! This was just a minor niggle and didn't effect my thoughts on the book though.But I did have an issue with the book that caused me to mark it down. I had read and liked the first book in this series and the author warned me that it would come to a sudden stop because it was 'to be continued' and that was ok with me. So I expected this book to pick up where the last one left off in the middle of the gang's escape from Hank and his mad brother. But when I started reading it, it had jumped ahead in the plot to Hank and his horse chasing the gang. It was a bit of a let down to me that we didn't get to see the rest of the escape as I had been enjoying that section the most in book one. Yeah we get a paragraph later on explaining how the gang escaped and what happened to Hank's brother but it wasn't a satisfying resolution to what had been an exciting escape. I know that the author has chosen to do the book this way for his own creative reasons but it kinda feels like being handed a zombie novel with pages or chapters missing at the most inappropriate times. As a reader it just didn't work for me.Judging by the cliffhanger at the end, I feel that the same device may be used for book 3 which is putting me off a bit. I like a story that flows nicely and shares all the action with the reader either in real time or in fully developed flashbacks. The author is a good storyteller with some excellent ideas but he does have a tendency to cut away from the scenes that you want to see all of, in favour of something else that slows the book down a bit. That can be a little frustrating for me.Overall this is still a decent read and if you don't mind the plot gaps and like your zombies, you'll probably enjoy it.
Zombies, cannibals, undead horses. What more can you ask for?L.R. takes it up a big notch with this follow up to his intro to the Tasty Trio, Confessions of a Red Neck Zombie Killing Psycho. He switches the perspective to the vilain of this first novel. I highlight this term because, while Hank is definitely a thoroughly unpalatable individual, the other protagonists are also revealed to have their own devils to shoulder, brutalized as they are in a world filled with zombies and where survival is the only objective and the moral norms of a civilized world no longer apply. All these deep issues and fun too!Also, Hank finds a most unusual way to get around and the ending is a devastating cliff hanger!!!Fortunately, L.J. will be releasing the third novel in the series soon. So the wait will not be too painful.
After our heroic trio kill Hank's younger brother Charlie, all he can think about is revenge! He saddles up his Zombie horse and hunts down Buck, Tammy and Denny. Along the way he encounters zombies, zombies and more zombies... and well a few surprises. His revenge is within his grasp but nothing is ever that simple. L.R. Currell's sequel of Confessions of a Red Neck Zombie Killing Psycho, gives us a little more insight into Hank Taylor's mind, his really messed up dark mind, but insight none the less. We get glimpses of his humanity mere moments before he squishes it back down. A Dead Horse Named Caleb is a another great short story that leaves you wanting more, the next installment of this dark and twisted tale will no doubt be the icing on the cake. Thanks for the great read once gain!
The second outing in this different take on a zombie series doesn't disappoint. A bit of a change with the reader this time spending most of the time with one of the villains from the first book. I love the way that Currell is able to create a perfectly eerie scene and make you feel as though things are going to happen a certain way, before ripping the rug from under you and throwing you off the scent completely. A climatic story centred around Hank and his determination and hunger for revenge. Riding a dead horse with electrical tape around its mouth to keep it from biting him, Hank powers on in pursuit of the trio responsible for his brothers death. What an original idea for a series, and another cliffhanger ending! Well done to this masterful storyteller.
