Review

"Moody is as imaginative as Barker, as compulsory as King and as addictive as Palahniuk"--SCREAM Magazine

Praise for AUTUMN:

"The best survival horror since Richard Matheson's "I am Legend"."" --"Wayne Simmons, Author of FLU and DROP DEAD GORGEOUS

"If you only read one book this year, read AUTUMN." --Suspense Magazine (2010 Best Book List)

"By the end of the book, you will be waiting impatiently for the next installment." --Dread Central

"As demonstrated throughout his previous novels, readers should crown Moody king of the zombie horror novel, and his final book in the Autumn series adds a much-deserved jewel to his crown. Certainly, this is action-packed, with corpses attacking on every other page, but the novel truly succeeds when Moody slows down the action and looks at human nature in the face of utter inhalation. Two years since the infection ravaged the entire world, wiping out 99 percent of the population, the new novel follows two groups of survivors, who fight hunger, fear, and, at times, boredom. The heartbreaking reality of their situation is magnified, however, when the first baby is conceived, leaving readers to wonder whether heartache or hope lives within the future of its small life."--"Booklist"

I was one of those people who took a punt and bought the first Autumn books that were self published. I'm glad I did. It was refreshing to read about a zombie outbreak in a world I could immediately relate to. The U.K. No marauding survivors armed to the teeth USA style, just real people with real lives that could have been you or I (if zombie apocalypses were real)
It's been a pleasure to follow the survivors, it got bleak, then it got bleaker but the human element always rang true.
Read these books. They're not chuck away horror, although the horror is there, these books are cleverer than that.
The Autumn series can get in your head and under your skin because you'll see yourself in the survivors whether you like it or not. So take a punt and see where Autumn will take you..

Today's review sees the end of what can only be described as an utterly epic series of books, Autumn by David Moody. Autumn: Aftermath is the fifth and final entry in the series. Could Moody maintain the standard set by the first four entries in the series?

Considering that the first Autumn novel was unleashed in 2001, it is impressive that Moody's writing style has remained consistent. He has created a universe which is bleak, full of dread; and he has continued to evolve his characters in keeping with the ordeals they are faced with. Similarly, Moody's undead have deteriorated at a rate that has left them in a gruesome state of decay, leaving the landscape covered in an unholy, nightmarish sludge of human remains and assorted grim detritus.
The strength of the plot of the Autumn series, and continuing in Aftermath, has always been the characters and their struggles, aside from the horrifying postapocalyptic situation they have found themselves in. Dealing with bickering, in-fighting, personality clashes, power-struggles and other features of what could be considered normal life, the consequences of which are significantly amplified when set in a world where the dead have risen, creating an environment where tempers are more easily frayed and matters are likely to explode... literally. Additionally for me, the plot of Aftermath, at a point, takes an unforeseeable and deeply unsettling turn that only serves to continue to set apart the Autumn series from lessed contemporaries in the postapocalyptic sub-genre.

Some of the entries in the series have been criticised for being stand-alone sequels with no real tie to their predecessors other than being set in the same universe and centring on the same cataclysmic event.

First published back in November of 2012, ‘Autumn: Aftermath’ formed British author David Moody’s fifth and last full-length instalment into his signature ‘Autumn’ zombie series (the sixth book after the companion book ‘Autumn: The Human Condition’ (2005)).

DLS Synopsis:
It’s now thirty-six days since the infection reduced humanity to just a few remaining survivors; struggling to remain within a world where the dead have risen and are tearing apart those left. Since the epidemic first hit, Alan Jackson has tried all sorts of places to hide away within. Now he’s hauled up in a cottage, quietly waiting out the days, hidden away from the rotting eyes of the dead.

But with a sudden change in heart Jackson decides he needs somewhere more secure. Somewhere where the dead could never reach him. Like the prison he’d previously tried to hide away in, but this time without all the dead locked away inside with him. And from out of the cottage window he can see the ideal place. Cheetham Castle. Protected by towering walls that are virtually impenetrable along with a huge impassable wooden gate – Cheetham Castle would undoubtedly prove to be one of the most secure and protected of locations to wait this thing out in.

However, upon breaking into the castle via a secret entrance, taking him underneath the castle and out though its dungeons, Jackson emerges into the closed-off interior of the huge stone structure, only to find a shotgun pointed at his face. It appears that Jackson wasn’t the only one to realise the potential in Cheetham Castle.

Luckily, the man with the shotgun, Kieran Cope, is happy to welcome Jackson into the relative safety of the castle.

I eventually gave this book four stars, not three, because David Moody brings all the characters from the series together and produces an ending which is quite a bit more than OK. I don't read this genre very much but like his writing style. He has a different 'take' on the infected which was interesting at the end. As with other post-apocolyptic books though I can't believe that there aren't more altruistic people left. The meek probably won't inherit the earth, but I rather think that the strong and positive will - in the end. Or is that wishful thinking on my part. Usually I re-read books I like after a year or two, but I expect I will take this series over to the USA next time I'm there for my 18 year old grandson. The story line is exciting without being completely given over to blood and gore, though the descriptive parts of the zombies after they start disintegrating are not for the feint hearted!
