In the grotesque and ridiculously over the top super metropolis Mega-City One the Judges act as the ultimate law enforcers dispensing justice on the streets with ruthless efficiency. When super intelligent pigs embark on a crazed revenge scheme for all those pork chops and rashers of bacon, Dredd has to get to the bottom of this insanity before his new partner is turned into sausages.

4.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read 20 Feb 2013

An entertaining story with action and intrigue. However I thought that there were a few details that I think might clash with the Judge Dredd mythos.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL LUNACY! Welcome to Mega City One 14 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a big 2000 AD and Judge Dredd fan I approached Dredd in novel form unsure of how well the post apocalyptic, black comedy and big action would translate into novel form. Believe me I wasn't disappointed! The author Andrew Cartmel has written a roller coaster of a novel that is highly recommended!

Simple equation Judge Dredd fan + Swine Fever = Good times!

A must read!

I had never previously thought of writing a review on Amazon for any of the purchases I have made, until I read Swine Fever.
Having read and enjoyed the other Judge Dredd/2000Ad related novels from Black Flame (they have been as good as the previous Dredd novels from Virgin books were) I looked forward to reading Swine Fever.
However Swine Fever is not just a terrible Judge Dredd tale, but a truely appaling book in every sense. This has got to be the worst Judge Dredd story line from ANY of the formats in which they have been printed.
Dredd aficionados or fans read at your peril.
How was this author allowed to sully a character that has become as iconic as Dredd?
Remember the horrendous Stallone, Dredd film and how that really was a poor attempt at capturing the world of of Dredd on cellulous?
Well this is the literary equivalent.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pants 23 May 2011
By M. Hill
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After being a long time fan of Judge Dredd, I was so happy he was on the Kindal. However having read case files from 1 to 6 I was so looking forward to reading no 7 Swine Fever.....what a disappointment and total waste of time. There are some rather good lines in here, but nothing to smirk about as Judge Dredd has to shut down the Porkie Factories with a PSI Necro Judge. Only one star ;( would not recommend the read, the writer made a bit of a pigs ear of the story;)

1.0 out of 5 stars Pig Swill 11 Dec 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having loved all the other Judge Dredd Novels I was terribly disappointed by this book. The writing style is poor and the story is weak at best. The writer seems to have no knowledge about the charecters and fails miserably in his attempts to match the dark humour that is associated with the world of Judge Dredd. Definately not to be recommended.
If I could give this a minus mark I would. I am not normally one to write reviews but this book annoyed me so much I have even written to the publishers to express how woefull this authour is.
