A not too distant prospect?,
This review is from: U.G.L.Y (Kindle Edition)
There are many negative connotations and stereotypes associated with zombie books or movies but H. A. Rhoades' novel doesn't fall into this trap. U.G.L.Y is an intelligent novel that presents a picture of a troubled world that stems from the overuse of drugs, greed and stupidity; many of the problems that afflict society at present. Many dystopian novels describe a world of the future that seems only a distant possibility with unlikely situations leading up to a catastrophe. However, this book describes a future that is already being shaped and serves well as a warning to our generation. I enjoyed the way in which the hero is presented as being in conflict with himself and his role as it matches the apocalyptic tone of the novel. I think that this book would work well as a film but also as a source of study in the classroom.
