More Zombies

Just finished Monster Island by David Wellington, a zombie novel. I liked it at first, and then sort of lost interest with the whole mystic side of things, but then got back into it near the end. All in all it was a satisfying zombie book. I have the two others, Monster Nation and Monster Planets, and will read them as well. I won’t get into the story line too much, save to say I liked all of the characters, each was well written and fleshed out (Opps, that might have been a play on the flesh eating zombie thing, sorry…) The plot is tight, but there is little to no sub plots and the story takes a more or less linier tour of events.

I did like that animals can be affected by the zombie plague, the flocks of undead pigeons was cool. No explanation though on the how’s an whys, although the inside view points of the zombie effects was interesting.

    So have you read Monster Hunters Inc, by David Correia. Tara highly recommends it and thought you might like it.
