Loved Mark Tufo's Zombie Fallout series (read it after this if only for a break hah) and thought must read this also, a stand alone novella from the zombie's view. Very weird and did I say gruesome (Im trying to bring back this word instead of the common'gross').
Be warned though it will make you go eeeewwww out loud!
For all of that its a well written and unputdownable story, shame its not a full length novel but then again, too much of a good thing?
Read it.. if you're man enough....
Great twist on the regular zombie novel told from the Zombie's point of view. Timothy is a rather nasty, cruel human being, who sidelines as a childrens party "guest clown", after coming to grips with a zombie he descends into the hell of being a thoroughly nasty zombie in a clown suit but with the added torture of being a self-aware zombie, fighting for control of his own body. A truly gory zombie-fest as he struggles to come to terms with his Zombie brain cells enjoying munching his way through the human population whilst his remaining human conciousness tries to avoid a bullet in the brain for his troubles and reason with/protect his zombie body, alongside this is a large dose of humour in the many "sticky" situations through which he must counsell his Zombie side through to survive. This is a book that will make you shudder/say "ewwwwww"/want to become vegetarian and then make you laugh out loud all in the space of a minute. Nods in this book to Stephen King and Marks own Zombie Fallout Series, one wonders how soon it will be before Mr King is doing nods to Mr Tufo in his books - Marks books are most certainly of a high enough calibre to give King a run for his money. An absolute smasher of a book - yeah its short but so worth reading and as with Mark's other books you will not be able to put it down.
where did you pull this gore fest from?? from a germaphobe hero to a flesh & tendon, lip smacking, arse of a man...
already hate clowns, but now i have more ammo for my nightmares... thanks!
as usual some very humorous (toilet based) moments followed by some disgusting, almost turn you veggie, moments!
some really clever head nods to the great SK but also a fantastic twist of fate at the end.... really did not see that coming...
loved the little freebies at the end.
Mark... you have exceeded yourself with this amazing story!
I would recommend this to anyone that loves a good gut flip, original idea or needs to go on a diet!
It's a great book though and links to the Zombie Fallout books quite nicely. Well worth a read if you think you will be able to keep your food down.
It is not often you find a book on Zombies or any other horror genre that is any where near believable, but this, well, I went out and bought a machete just to be safe when I first read this, as a stand alone novella it is brilliant, beautifully paced and well written, with a plot that dragged you in kicking and screaming and leaves you at the end begging for more.
The characterisation was sublime leaving me actually hatting the main character for who he was and how he was portrayed (As a human) and rooting for him when he became El clowno Zombio.
The supporting cast although either dead or a walking lunch box were as equally well created leaving you with a fully rounded and very believable cast of characters.
Although written in U.S. English it was very easy to read as a U.k reader which is not often the case with some American authors I can tell you having read several works from the U.S, despite that there were one or two names or phrases left me guessing praise god for Google, other than that it is a first class book and a must have for any Horror genre reader.
