4.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed Zombie Outbreak 1 Nov 2011
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
First, let me say that these zombies made me want to vomit. They not only bite to spread infection, but they spew a black liquid filled with parasites. Absolutely revolting, but great horror!

Dead of Night is not like Patient Zero. It begins more as a mystery thriller, when the body of a convicted serial killer that goes missing after his execution, and two murder victims are left behind in the morgue. Before any action begins, readers are given a thorough description of all the main characters, which includes their relationships to one another, as well as their personalities. By the time the infected are roaming Stebbins, PA, you will feel like you are part of the small town. Most of the big action scenes didn't start until halfway through the book, so the set-up requires some patience, but it's worth it.

The book is divided into four parts, with each part beginning with a different section of The Hollow Men by TS Eliot. The very first chapter is told from the mind of an infected victim, expressing his personal hell as he is trapped in a body that he is no longer in control of, and he is forced to watch the atrocities that his vessel is committing. This left me wondering if all the infected were suffering the same way. Readers are given a scientific explanation eventually.

The POV continues to switch between characters, including a reporter named Billy Trout, and a police office named Dez Fox. One of the reasons that the infection is allowed to spread is the high level of denial, even among those who have witnessed the zombies firsthand. As Trout investigates the story of Homer Gibbon's missing corpse, he uncovers a government conspiracy, but Trout refuses to believe the horror behind the truth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dead of Night by Jonathan Maberry 5 May 2014
By anon
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An interesting take on the zombie theme and basically a good read. I would have given a four star rating but for two sequences in the story which detracted from the urgency of the situation. Outside the Stebbins school with the infected no more than thirty yards away and some of them able to move at a loping run, Officer Des Fox has a long conversation with Sergeant Polk and shortly afterwards carries on a lengthy conversation with ex boy friend Billy Trout regarding their strained relationship. All this while the infected are drawing closer. The latter conversation in particular seriously detracts from the urgency of the situation.
Perhaps I am being a little picky here, but this scenario was totally unreal bearing in mind the situation they were in.
Apart from this I would recommend the book for its different approach to the zombie genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars When I grow up, I want to write like J.M. 18 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jonathan Maberry, in the space of eighteen months and off the back of his wonderful Rot & Ruin series has become my favourite writer. His excellent characterisation, character development, employment of shifting narratives and innate understanding of those foibles, flaws and strengths that make humans so damaged, vital and engaging, light up his books, and bring his characters screaming into life.

Dead of Night is a fine addition to his catalogue.

Populated by painfully real characters with complex lives and motives, this story feels like a blow to the heart. We share his main character's fears and confusion and their determination asMaberry puts them through the wringer and their lives change forever.

As always, Maberry empowers his characters, they're far from perfect, but they grit their teeth, spit out any fear and do what needs to be done. Perhaps they cry later. Des Fox, in particular was a stand out for me. Jonathan seems to be making a habit of crafting complex, strong, dangerous and sympathetic female leads. Very welcome in a genre over-run with screaming damsels.
Maberry carries along his readers on a wave of empathy, fear, tension, excitement and dread. If words were narcotics, you'd find me on Maberry's street corner awaiting my man for another fix.
Jonathan gives his characters motives without judgement and lays them out for the reader to make of what they will. When I grow up, I want to write like J.M.

This is how to write zombie fiction. Clever take on a classic monster and if you are not emotionally effected by the ending you are as cold as the monsters in the book. THANK YOU JONATHAN MABERRY

4.0 out of 5 stars preferable to his other zombie novels 23 Feb 2012
By Bear
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed his other works 'Rot and Ruin' and 'Dust and Decay' but these were both for the teenage market and written as such where as this novel was very well written and obviously for the older reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zombies and government cover ups 21 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Jonathan Maberry does it again.

This is a new line of of books for Jonathan and I hope he pursues it further. The story follows several different set of people who interconnect in different ways to be drawn to once finalish conclusion. The main story focuses around two cops and their battle for survival at the start of a out break in a smallish town. The story cleverly unfolds to reveal the source of the plague which involves government cover up and mad doctors. A very cleaver twist in one thread follows a zombie where the active mind is trapped inside a body it cannot control.

All in all a great read which is very well crafted. There is enough room for a follow up and I hope the author takes advantage.
