Product Description

Review

Praise for Zom-B Underground:
"Once the action starts, it doesn't let up... Shan has done a good job of balancing this angst with B's more physical situation, and it is the strength of this installment." ""School Library Journal"""

Praise for "Zom-B" "Shan packs in the bites, and he rips out enough entrails for even the most jaded zombie fan; the cliffhanger ending...closes on just the right note to leave the audience gnawing for more...A series opener to sink your teeth into." ""Kirkus Reviews"""

"A raw and deeply observant tale of a morally questionable kid trying, and usually failing, to move beyond the ingrained racism instilled by B's father. It is a brave move by Shan to posit such a bigoted hooligan as our protagonist." ""Booklist"""

"Character development is impressive...and Shan executes the transition from normalcy to wholesale terror masterfully." ""Publishers Weekly""" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Read most of this book in one sitting, it was so good.
It had just as many great twists as the first Zom-B but was more fast-paced and scarier. Plus it introduced a truly scary new character (who promises to feature prominently in the next in the series) as well as a lot of mystery and many questions I can't wait to dive into the next installment to have answered.

Underground takes off where Zom-B left us. I don't really want to say anymore in case I spoil it, but this book has given me high hopes for the series - much more so than the first did.

I still had issues with actively disliking Becky (and at one point I outright hated her), but she does redeem herself (in my opinion) a little towards the end. I think it's a real credit to Shan as a writer that I loved this book so much and the series in general despite the unlikable protagonist.

an't wait for Zom-B City to come out in March.

I chose this rating because it is simply fabulous with all the things a horror freak like me wants. I would not recommend it to anyone under the age of 11 as it is very gory even more gory than than the first one. I could not stop reading this as I was always wondering what would happen next as every word was a cliff hanger. It is also a very quick read. One of his finest yet!!!!

Since I was a boy and my cousin recommended the Cirque du freak series, I've been hooked! Although lacking a little bit in terms of quantity and quality compared to the Demonata series and the predecessor, it's still very, very good. I bought it, it came in a day, I read it in a day, I got sad because I have to wait 3 months for the next one. The book's great and the speed of the service and quality of the product were great.

I don't care who the target market is for Darren Shan but I couldn't wait for this book after the sock ending of the first. Then I find out the next step and it gets a whole lot better. New perspective, new ideas - puts other zombie writers to shame! Breaking tradition with a new take I'm hooked.

A page turner

The story continues to engage the reader with its tight plot development and character building. Too short of course and am not sure the almost Dickensian trick of publishing the story in instalments works in this day and age, but for the moment I am hooked.

I have read the entire book and it was fantastic. I'll keep this simple as anything could spoil the plot to anyone yet to read it. I enjoyed the first book of this new series (Zom-B) and was very excited for this one, wondering what has happened to B and if they are still alive. Darren Shan gives a helpful opening which refreshes us on whjat happened in the first book and sets the stage well for Zom-B Underground. This book introduces a new set of characters from soldiers to other teeneagers and scientists and the plot is much grittier than the first. With a good story, well-written charcaters and enough things to get you thinking, Underground does not fail to not only gets the series going but also gives more depth and detail to it after the sort of introduction the first book was.
I reccomend it if you enjoyed the first and I will definately be reading the next book Zom-B City.

WARNING: This review will contain spoilers for Zom-B, the first book in Darren Shan's new series. Seriously, if you have not yet read that book then you should click away from this review right now.

Waking up in a military complex, months after zombies attacked school, B has no memory of the last few months. Life in the UK has turned tough since the outbreak, and B is woven into life- and battle- in the new military regime quickly. But as B learns more about the zombies held in the complex and the scientists keeping them captive, unease settles in. Why exactly was B saved? And is there anyone left in the world to trust?

With Zom-B Darren Shan left himself a seriously difficult act to follow. Those two twists towards then end have had everybody talking (and if you say you guessed both of them then I'm sorry, I simply do not believe you). That twist regarding B made me feel guilty for making assumptions about the character, something I am sure Darren was trying to achieve with his readers. And then he followed it up with B being savaged by the zombies that were rampaging through the school. Way to kill off what we were led to assume was a main character! Or did he?

OK, it isn't creating a spoiler to say that no he did not kill off B. She is alive (sort of) and well (ok, maybe not glowing with health), and wakes to find herself in some kind of large room, surrounded by zombies who are facing up to a team of figures dressed in black leather and motorcycle helmets, wielding spears and flamethrowers. She soon discovers that she is a prisoner in an underground military complex, and no longer human. In fact, she is a zombie herself, although not one of the mindless brain munchers (known as reviveds).

My 10 year old absolutely loves this author! He's got the whole set and rates them VERY highly! He's always been forward with his reading, so I'd probably say the books are not suited to MOST 10 year olds - probably more 12-13+ :)
