4.0 out of 5 stars great writer but the zombie loses a star, sorry! 15 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
i have discovered many wonderful authors via kindle and chris ward is one of my favourites. i was lucky enough to stumble across his shot story 'the cold pools' which was free and which was a serious 5 star book. i would happily have given it 10 had that been an option. this little collection is great fun and shows his talent for humour in storytelling. all the stories are quite different and original with a distinct quirkiness i love. the only reason this doesnt get 5 stars is that i find zombies really boring and tiresome and although chris ward introduces us to 'Roy' in an interesting situation i still struggle to get involved. the same is most definitely not true of the other stories, all of which i enjoyed immensely. 'mrs itos bird' is probably my favourite and is certainly one of the strangest and most original tales ive ever read. it has elements that almost made me gag but still managed to fascinate me and make me smile and even had me cheering on the totally repulsive bird of the title. as with many of his stories theres more going onthan at first glance. a really enjoyable and clever set of stories
