20 Years After The Zombie Apocalypse
I absolutely love Zombie books and saw this one for very low cost on Amazon Kindle so thought I would take the plunge! I wasn't disappointed! This is not a pleasant easy read but the story through the eyes of a young girl called Harriette (Harri) who after seeing both her parents circumb to the zombie plague is rescued by a group of surviors. Most of the story takes place 20 years after the initial zombie outbreak and paints a picture of a grim post apocalyptic future where a few survivors manage to stay alive in the ruins of man kinds towns and cities. Harri's point of view does jump quite a lot from past to present and in between but once you get used to this style of writing it is very easy to follow and helps fill in the gaps of the story as it unfolds. It's a small novel at just less than 200 pages but it packs quite a punch and keeps you eagerly reading on! The stand out moment for me is when Harri is living with a bunch of the survivors in an isolate farm house thinking they are safe and then the zombies find them......! Brilliant book - love it, well worth a read if Zombies are your thing.
This book was amazing I found it really hard to put down and finished it in 2 days. It is such an amazing tale, really didn't want it to end, found myself getting involved with the whole storyline, I would higly recommend this!
20 Years After the Zombie Apocalypse is short, but sad, emotional and intriguing. The focus is not so much the zombapocalypse, but afterwards - the dangers of being a survivor, trying to keep your makeshift family together, watching the world deteriorate with lack of upkeep and care.
I really liked Harri as a character, and also felt incredibly sad for her, being (as far as she knows) the last survivor of the human race, pursued by the man she loved who is now a zombie and therefore sees her only as fresh meat.
Harri's story is told in a series of flashbacks and hallucinations, and in a few places the switch was quite sudden, and took me by surprise, but gave great insight into how Harri came to be where she was, why she was alone, and her reasons for returning `home'.
There are some gory moments, but much of the focus is on Harri and her story, so it is far less than some other zombie books, and is written as almost background noise - if you don't like the descriptions of people being attacked by zombies, 20 Years After the Zombie Apocalypse is written to your taste. I enjoyed this book a great deal.
I'm really looking forward to reading the second book.
Note - there are some small spelling errors that I spotted, but for self-published the spelling Nazi won't get much of a workout.
