AUTUMN, the classic underground novel finally bursts into the mainstream. It is cold, dark, relentless - and uncomfortably plausible, a NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD for the 21st Century.
Amazon said: 'The perfect zombie story, nothing written in the genre has grabbed me in the same way as AUTUMN, an equal to Romero's Night of the Living Dead'.
In the tradition of THE WALKING DEAD, and from an author whose HATER was optioned by Guillermo del Toro, director of PAN'S LABYRINTH, this is a chilling and frightening read.
In less than twenty-four hours a vicious and virulent viral epidemic destroys virtually all of the population. Billions are killed, within minutes. There are no symptoms and no warnings; within moments of infection each victim suffers a violent and agonising death.
At the end of ten minutes, only a handful of survivors remain. By the end of the first day those survivors wish they were dead.
By the end of the first week, as the dead get up and walk, they know they are in hell.

So far, so good, normal zombies. I dont think the characters reaction to the scene facing them is developed well, they are a bit flat. Still, I want to see how this develops.
Great and easy to read
I love this genre, it's set in the UK which is a plus for me. I've now read some of David Moody's other books. The thing I like about him as an author is he takes his own subtle slant on the theme. If you like post apocalyptical and also the zombie thing you will love this book. It can be easy to criticize if the novel go the way you think it should, but that's entirely open to your own interpretation of the book. At worst it gets critical people thinking. But I loved it. Have a look at "Hater" too.
I came by this book over a review on the Internet, I looked for a free copy but found none. From start to finish I have been gripped by the plight and the sheer will to survive of the human race! This book had everything from fear, the development of trust to close friendship which blossoms through the fear. I would recommend this book to any zombie fan.
