5.0 out of 5 stars deadfall, 23 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadfall: A Zombie Novel (Paperback)
taken from the back of the book

its halloween in the small suburban town of wakefield, mass. while parents take their children trick or treating and others throw costume parties, a swarm of meteorites enter the earths atmosphere and crash to earth. inside are small parasitic worms, no larger than maggots. the worms quickly infect the corpses at a local cemetery and so began the rise of the undead. the walking dead soon get the upper hand, with no one believing the truth. that the dead now walk. will a small group of survivors live through the zombie apocalypse? or will they too succumb to the deadfall?

yet another excellant zombie novel by anthony giangregorio, and once again, the author comes up with a new and unique way to reanimate the dead. like all his novels, this one doesn,t take long to get started on the zombie action, and once it does, you get blood and guts galore. a small group of survivors try to survive long enough to leave their besieged town, and what a diverse bunch they are. a newly divorced man working as a security guard, a young mother and her baby, a cop who has only been on his beat for several weeks, a prisoner in the cells arrested for a traffic offense. there is also a little side story involving a pyromanic, who uses the chaos around him to indulge in his fantasies without fear of arrest. its also nice to see that not only humans are affected, animals are too, and we see a dog get infected at one point, even if it doesn,t dwell on this aspect of the infection.

although i love the authors work, i also believe in a little constructive critisism, and a few things need to be mentioned. at one point in the book, a scene takes place which makes no sense at all. a woman answers her doorbell to find 4 zombies standing there. because she thinks they are just dressed up for halloween, she invites them in. instead of attacking her, they walk right past her and enter her house, before attacking others. think about it for a minute, the zombies RANG THE DOORBELL, and then ignored her completly. what was the author thinking?

another thing worth mentioning is the method by which the zombie invasion starts. a novel twist don,t get me wrong, but are we really expected to believe that every meteorite that fell just happened to land in a cemetery? it makes even less sense when we later find out that other countries have the same problem. did all the meteorites all over the planet land in a cemetery?

if you can ignore the lapses in logic, this is yet another brilliant zombie novel by a brilliant author
