9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Oliver Scott on 9 Nov. 2004
Format: Paperback
Some other reviews did put me off a little, but being that I am a big fan of the zombie fims and find zombie, end ofg the world situations very entertaining, I ended up ordering it.
Its a little on the expensive side at almost £15, but it is a very fine read in my opinion. There's roughly 2 pages to fill you in on the first main character before suddenly, zombies come straight in to it. A lot of people who like the novels to build a good set of characters will find this distracting, but I personally love this.
Most books I try out usually require some work before I do get drawn in (after 100 pages) but this book didn't require any effort to enjoy, it was non-stop action or good story telling, no wasted pages on describing a character''s life and feelings before he/she dies moments later.
As for the dialouge, I have to disagree with the person who gave this a negative review, I thought it was verbally proficient, certainly doesn't insult your intelligence. So, my advice, to any zombie fans, buy it. The zombies follow the Romero rules (most people I know like it that way) and its a blast.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Len Barnhart’s “Reign Of The Dead” is the first novel of his post-apocalyptic zombie series. To date there is only one sequel so far released, entitled “Reign Of The Dead: Apocalypse End”, but a third instalment is due out in the autumn of 2006 entitled “Reign Of The Dead: Outbreak”. The first two novels have both been released through iUniverse Star publications.
From the start of the novel, the reader is quickly thrown into the devastating turn of events that have brought the human race close to extinction. The story follows a small collection of survivors who have to struggle daily within their desperate situation. Len’s writing offers up a thick serving of splatter to keep the average gore fiend happy, whilst still producing a fast-paced and action packed tale. With haunting similarities to that of Romero’s “Dead” series of films, Len has managed to bring in elements of the mental stress and personal conflicts that would undoubtedly arise from such an unbelievable situation.
The book will keep you entertained from the first few pages to the dramatic conclusion, delivering high tension, breath-taking suspense and blood caked action. The book is available in both paperback and hardback, but due to a small number of pressings, it does cost quite a bit. I bought the book in hardback and felt happy with the item I received. The book runs for a total of 272 pages.

Format: Paperback
I am a fan of the zombie-type-end-of-the-world scenario and picked up this book as a recommendation from the author Max Brooks of World War Z. As brilliant as WWZ is, Reign of Dead on the otherhand is at the opposite end of the spectrum. Insipid in many parts, I began to question if it was even proof read ; the grammar and punctuation are so so atrocious.
I honestly have no idea why Max Brooks would suggest ROTD as a good zombie read. It is absolutely not.

Format: Paperback
I love Zombie movies and am generally quite happy to read so-called "low brow" fiction, but this had me struggling to stay interested.
There's no pace, no character development, nothing. It reads as if an 8 year-old child has written it.
John looked at Mick. Mick looked at John. A zombie came along. Mick shot it.
That's pretty much what reading this book is like. Awful.
