Another reviewer wrote "Joan Turner does for Zombies what Anne Rice did for Vampires." I couldn't have said it better myself! These are not your usual "zombie" stories.
In Ms. Turner's first book, "Dust", the story is told by a young woman who becomes a zombie. The book is both heart-breaking and totally riveting. In "Frail" (The author's next book on zombies), the protagonist is a human who must live through a frightening new world where human life is short and dangerous. The discoveries the protagonists make in both books begs the question of what it is that makes us "Human." (There are good zombies and bad zombies.) The characters in both books are extremely well-developed. They have flaws as well as strengths, which makes them interesting and realistic.
I truly enjoyed both books and am hoping there's a sequel to "Frail."
If you haven't read either book, you are in for a treat.
