Real People.. Real Zombies.. Love it!,
This review is from: Drop Dead Gorgeous (Paperback)
The first thing that grabbed me about this book, from the first page - was the people. Simmons puts a very natural skew on his characters that I love.
They are so real, right off the street and onto the page. Relationships between the characters were tangible, all the way through. There was nothing about the dynamics of the people I disliked - their emotions and reactions to the apocolyptic world they find themselves in were *exactly* how I would expect products of our society to behave.
The zombies were brilliant - I can't wait for more of them! Even though I am new to the genre (beyond a bit of King/Herbert) the zombies were really sexy and exciting, their intriguing appearance and bittersweet introduction into the storyline was just brilliant, I wanted to know more and the hows and whys of them as soon as the first 'body' was noted........
All in all, I know this is a short but sweet review - I am champing at the bit to get hold of the next book in what looks to be a very promising series - Keep up the good work Simmons- as I'm damn sure gonna keep reading!
