This review is from: Plague of the Dead (The Morningstar Strain) (Paperback)
I bought this as a lover of the excellent "World War Z" and was sorely disappointed. The prose is badly written and shoddy, leaving the characters lacking depth and empathy. There is a shocking over-reliance on one or two adjectives, leaving the book feeling stale and listless. The story rollicks along well enough. and the action sequences are well dealt with, but character development and dialogue needs much improvement for me to read this author's work again. Conversations are leaden and each character lacks any kind of distinct personality. Their behaviour and conversations may vary wildly, but they all feel like one voice beneath.
Overall, not the worst piece of fiction ever written, but severely lacking in key areas.
