Review

"David Moody is a master suspense builder."---James Melzer, author of "Escape: The Zombie Chronicles
""Moody is an inarguably talented author . . . one of the best horror authors of the new decade.""---Bloody-Disgusting.com"
"As Moody's Autumn series continues, it's been about a month and a half since a virus wiped out most of humanity and turned the dead into zombies--although the author doesn't use either the word "zombie" or most of the familiar tropes. A small group of men and women are holed up in a block of flats, barricaded against the lumbering dead. But their uneasy safety doesn't last, and eventually they're forced out into the open, where, rather coincidentally, they meet up with another band of survivors who seem to have made themselves a much more secure stronghold, until clashing personalities inside the compound threaten to put them all at risk. This is a crisply written novel (although it's not as visceral as Moody's Hater series, which tackles the zombie theme from a more violent angle) with well-defined characters and a palpable sense of creeping terror: these undead might be sluggish and easy to kill, but they also seem to be a lot smarter than anyone realizes. The novel ends on a terrifying, tragic note, promising a suitably horrific finale for the series.""--David Pitt, Booklist"

Over the course of the last six months, I've been reading David Moody's Autumn books: a series of novels set in a postapocalyptic Britain where an apparent global pandemic has wiped out the majority of the populace and the survivors find themselves outnumbered in a world where many of the dead have not only risen but are becomingly increasingly more dangerous...
Autumn: Disintegration is the fourth in the series and I've made no secret of the fact that I've loved these books so far.

The timeline for Disintegration appears to be roughly similar to that found in the previous entry in the series, Purification, with the undead continuing to rot but also to evolve in a progressively more alarming fashion. Moody does not repeat the events of the third novel in the Autumn series here but weveas them seamlessly into that of Disintegration, where he introduces the reader to a new set of characters who, in keeping with the author's particular style, are incredibly ordinary individuals thrust into an extraordinary situation and as such, exposes the more base instincts of the human condition. Moody's characters display fear, selfishness, stupidity and the overwhelming desire for self-preservation.

Although this is the penulitmate entry in the Autumn series, Disintegration, to my mind, is significantly different to its predecessors in that it will sate the gorehounds out there, since it ramps up the action considerably in comparison.

First published back in December of 2011, ‘Autumn: Disintegration’ formed British author David Moody’s fourth full-length instalment into his signature ‘Autumn’ zombie series (the fifth book after the companion book ‘Autumn: The Human Condition’ (2005)).

DLS Synopsis:
It’s been forty days since the vast majority of the world’s population succumbed to the plague. Since then the dead have risen and those remaining have clung together, hiding themselves away from the walking dead as best they can.

In a deserted housing block that was on the verge of being pulled down before the end of the world struck, a group of eleven tired and stressed survivors attempt to eke out an existence together. Having barricaded up all of the entrances and exits into the dilapidated housing estate, the group of survivors spend their days hiding away in one of the decaying flats; living off the supplies that they have managed to scavenge from the shops nearby.

However, the dead are beginning to congregate in increasing numbers on the other side of their hastily erected car barricades. Their numbers are swelling with each day; the dead drawn to the area by the constant sight and loud noise emitted by the survivors. And so in response to the growing problem, the gang of survivors take drastic action. Mass culls of the dead using hand weaponry and fire are brought into effect. But the numbers of the dead are too great, and with the attitude in the corpses beginning to show signs of changing, becoming increasingly controlled and aware of their surroundings, the time soon comes for the survivors to get out.

But there is another group of survivors close by who have taken a different approach to adapting to the presence of the undead.

Another powerful episode in the ongoing world of the Autumn series. If only the author would use a different word than powerful over and over again this would get four stars. It leaves behind the hateful characters of the original three books and starts afresh with a new bunch of survivors, this time starting weeks into the already ravaged world. As seems to be typical with the author, no characters are particularity likeable, but this is still a very good read.

Having read the previous series of Autumn books, and following them to a natural conclusion it was a morbid joy to get the chance to re-visit the ravaged world of the original series. With new characters, greater story developments and Moody's outstanding ability to create a truly creepy claustophobic atmosphere, this book really stands as one of the strongest in the series (along with the original Autumn).
The tie in with the story line of the previous book, and the new character's reaction to the "air traffic" really helps to tie everything in and link the tales of the 2 groups of survivors.
Read as part of the series, or stand alone, Disintegration is modern zombie horror at its atmospheric, panicy best.

Format: Paperback
Highly enjoyable 4th book of the Autumn series. Here Moody ramps up the action and gore score. My only complaint is it is a bit formulaic as the previous Autumn entries. I still find it fascinating that Moody never uses the word 'Zombie' throughout this living dead series, although I find it difficult to imagine characters never calling the dead by that term. I'm particularly enjoying reading about the deterioration of the zombies and their changing thought patterns of survival. Can't wait for the next entry Aftermath. Highly recommended to living dead fans.
