As well as being a zombie story, Latter-Day of the Dead is an intimiate, intricate look into the world of a radical Mormon community. Opening with a scene in a local strip-joint, the story quickly moves back to the community and as the virus takes hold, the community leaders at first refuse to believe what is happening and quickly turn to believing the virus is a sign of the devil possessing their families.
Elias is the community doctor, and one of the few members of the community who has allowed to study in the big, bad outside world. He's an intriguing character that despite his exposure to the rest of the world has remained true to his communities beliefs. There was only one thing I didn't really like about him, and that was his habit of expressing strong emotions by saying something along the lines of ''If I could use two words to describe it, it would be 'really' and 'annoying'''.
The other members of the community are incredibly believable in their words and actions, particularly the head of the family who treated his wives as nothing more than human shields when the shit really hit the fan.
The language used by the characters, and in the writing itself, was incredibly realistic and a perfect fit for the old-fashioned and radical ideas of the community. The spread of the virus through the community realistically used all the 'normal' emotions from denial through to radical ideas on how to deal with the infected.Read more ›
I came across this book reading Laura Thomas' post on her blog: fuonlyknew. The disturbing cover and creepy trailer reeled me right in.
Brother Elias, the only doctor of the town, treats a fellow citizen of the compound, Benjamin, for a bite in his nether regions. Let this be a lesson to all men who like to frequent the back rooms of lap dancing bars! To Brother Elias, the marks look like human teeth. Before long, Benjamin goes a little crazy and bites the finger off another man, and just like that, infection has arrived in their quiet community.
There are some gruesome images and disturbing scenes in Latter Day of the Dead. Through Brother Elias's words and actions, the author brings to light the downright creepy nature of the polygamists' religion and lifestyle. Verdell, the direct prophet of God, is nothing more than a cowardly pervert. His congregation suffers from inbreeding.
An entertaining and creepy read. Great horror story.
