Product Description

Product Description

"My name is John Diant. Father, brother, head of the anti-mayonnaise society and slayer of the living dead. It’s now over a day since I last updated this journal. Over a day since my daughter Emily, her boyfriend Jonathon and my retro friend 80s Dave and I made it to my brother's house. After fighting the undead population of Runcorn to get here, we thought we'd be safe but nothing could have prepared us for what came next."

Death in a Northern Town continues with No Rest for the Living. Journal entries from survivor John Diant bring you the zombie apocalypse from his perspective whilst chapters bring you tales from the town and the struggles that survivors continue to face.

The original story was outstanding but this second installment is even better.

The story picks up where part 1 ended and continues the terrifying and absolutely hilarious story of the zombie apocalypse in Rucnorn.

The superstars from the first story are all here (John Diant, 80s Dave and of course Butty) and there are a whole host of wonderful, new chilling but amusing obstacles for them to overcome in order to survive.....

Simply couldn't put the book down and drew a lot of strange looks from other train passengers as I laughed out loud . In fairness the looks on their faces only resulted in my laughing even more uncontrollably.

The book was totally amazing but certain episodes really stood out. Supermarket Sweep and the newly formed Aliens of Runcorn Spotters Elite (A.R.S.E) were truly astonishing.

Also it was great to see the band Faster than Bulls featured in a particularly gruesome scene in Rockwells.

Goodness knows where Peter Mckiernon dreams up these incredible escapades (it really is disturbing) but long may it continue

Definitely this series are the best zombie novels EVER and you really MUST READ THIS (but preferably not just before eating).....

What.... still here.... go on....BUY IT NOW!!!

You won't regret it...

Oh! Almost forgot, Check out the fantastic 'When Death Comes To Town' by Faster than Bulls. It's an incredible track and is based on the original book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking Read 14 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cracking book. The first book had to establish the characters and maybe was bit slower to get going because of it but now they are well rounded and going about their business in ever more hilarious ways. The listing of the undead has been mentioned before as being distracting but when you realise that the undead are real local people who have asked to be killed in ever gruesome ways on Pete's Facebook page then you are more accepting of it. DIANT is more than a book it is an exploration of a little known town in the Northwest of England and gives insights into the lives of people there in a funny (but not nasty and sneering way).

The story now moves on from the outbreak and introduces those who are struggling to survive the apocalypse and those using it as an excuse to exploit the situation. Not only has the story moved on but the writing has improved greatly and gives an insight into Pete's development as a comedy horror writer. It is funnier than than the first book and leads you wanting to know more about the main characters, one of which is 80's Dave in danger of reaching cult status and Butty who is eccentric as ever. Expect plenty of surprises as the characters try to get to grip with their situation and unwittingly fall foul of a local maniac in their survival attempts. Won't put in any spoilers but be ready to be surprised at the antics of the survivors. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to many more, the characters grow on you in this second book and the fun and gore are more balanced.

Couldn't put DIANT 2 down! Peter McKeirnon has scored big once more with the second part of his zombiefest! So disappointed as it seemed it was over so quickly. So looking forward to the next one, gotta see what happens!!!!!

Another page turner from Peter Mckeirnon! The kids haven't been fed, the dishes haven't been washed and the laundry hasn't been done, I should have learnt my lesson from the first book because once you start reading a DIANT book you won't be putting it down until you reach the end! It's always a case of "I'll just read one more chapter" and before you know it you're at the end of the book!

I absolutely loved the first book and sequels are often a disappointment but not this one! The next instalment of the zombie filled adventures of Butty, 80's Dave and this rag tag band of apocalypse survivors is as amusing and gripping as the original! The only problem is that I've finished reading it in one day so I'll have to wait ages for the 3rd instalment! Come on Peter, get your finger out and get DIANT 3 sorted asap, I need to know what happens next!

I have to say having read book 1 which took me a little getting into I'm so glad I carried on reading because it only got better. I laughed out loud several times and the best part for me was The CB radio bit and when butty put on his battle armour of skinny jeans and lampshade, proper laughed I did. And what good humour all the way through. I hope there is a follow up soon. What great characters these lot are. Bring it soon dude.

The second instalment of DIANT is fantastic
I could not put it down
Peter Mckerinon has bettered his original offering with a writing style that as well a being twisted and sick has you turning the page and turning to the puke bowl at the same time.
I can't wait for the third instalment
