5.0 von 5 Sternen In jeder Hinsicht kompromisslos! 19. Juni 2010
Von Parsec TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
David Moody hat sich in den letzten Jahren durch konstant erstklassige Werke zu einem der meiner Ansicht nach wichtigsten neuen Horror-Autoren etabliert - und war mit seinem überragenden "Autumn" (dt. "Herbst") Zyklus Mitte des letzten Jahrzehnts wesentlich daran beteiligt, das das Zombie-Genre mittlerweile im ganz großen Stil zurück gekommen ist.

Offenkundig ist, dass David Moody ein echtes Faible für Apokalypsen hat...und das er nicht nur sehr gut schreiben kann, wenn es um Zombies geht, hat er auch mit seinen Frühwerken "Trust" und "Straight zu You" bewiesen - und vor allem mit dem 2006 erstmals erschienenen "Hater" (dt. "Im Wahn"), mit welchem er einen neue Trilogie begann und welcher wohl gerade auch verfilmt wird.

DOG BLOOD ist nunmehr der lange erwartete zweite Teil der Hater-Trilogie. Es ist somit kein eigenständiger Roman, und auch wenn man ihn durchaus lesen kann ohne den Vorgänger zu kennen kann nur empfohlen werden, "Hater" / "Im Wahn" vorher zu lesen - viele Nuancen der Geschichte mögen sonst auf der Strecke bleiben.

Die Prämisse von DOG BLOOD und Hater lautet wie folgt: in der Gegenwart teilt ein unerklärliches Ereignis die Menschheit - innerhalb weniger Tage entwickelt sich ein erheblicher Teil der Menschen, unabhängig von Alter, Geschlecht und Herkunft, zu Hatern, welche getrieben sind vom unstillbaren und psychotischen Bedürfnis, den anderen Teil zu vernichten. Im Endeffekt bilden sich also quer durch alle sonstigen Kategorien zwei Gruppen: die Hater und die Unchanged - und diese Gruppen stehen sich in einem gandenlosen Konflikt gegenüber, da es anscheinend unmöglich ist, das beide gemeinsam existieren können.

5.0 von 5 Sternen intelligent apocalyptic chiller 12. Juni 2010
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The world as we know it no longer exists. The human race is divided into two distinct camps: the Unchanged and the Haters. The latter are people ripped of all social restraints and must kill the Unchanged. Their goal is an Unchanged genocide. The Haters have caused governments to collapse destroying the infrastructure of every nation. They still can think but obsess over killing the Unchanged even family members.

Danny McCoyne is a Hater who hunts the Unchanged without mercy. His goal is to find his daughter Ellis who was taken away from him when he was knocked unconscious after killing his father-in-law. Before he passed out, he saw her and knows she is just like him. The government has relocated the Unchanged inside cities filled with traps like a medieval fortress. Danny falls in with a group that seeks the same destruction as he does. He learns to control his homicidal impulses so he can enter the city because his Ellis is there.

This intelligent apocalyptic chiller is a fantastic horror tale that continues the escapades of the Haters, who are a zombie like humanoids. The species cannot control their basic impulse to slaughter the Unchanged though Danny tries as his love for Ellis supersedes his instinct to kill. Though lacking the cautionary theme of its predecessor, but with the same moody dark atmosphere and a strange flicker of paternal love and hope, Dog Blood is a terrific zombie thriller that affirms David Moody as a strong talent.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Well paced sequel to Hater 20. Mai 2010
Von Matt Hausig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This novel is the sequel to Hater and takes place shortly after the end of the earlier book. Most of the backstory is absent so reading the first book is essential to understanding what is going on. Overall, the story here is fast paced and thrilling but also falls prey to middle-book syndrome. Lots of travelling, setbacks and an underwhelming ending all point to a resolution taking place in a later novel. Further, the novelty of the hater perspective lacks the punch it had in the first book. In sum, those who enjoyed the first novel should also like this one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen worthy successor to the classic HATER 16. Juni 2010
Von Craig DiLouie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Sequels are tough, especially for a novel like HATER, which contained one of the most powerful twists I've seen in this genre, but Moody aces it with DOG BLOOD. It's got all the elements of an exciting apocalyptic horror novel while adding Moody's trademark ability to make you care about the very real, flesh-and-blood people in his story. While the experience of reading the book would probably be richer if you read HATER first, it's not necessary, and I would suggest this as an opportunity (to read another great book), not a detractor. Can't wait for the next one!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally--a zombie book from the zombie's perspective 7. September 2010
Von Jeremy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dog Blood, the highly anticipated sequel to Hater (first self-published in 2006), continues the fast-paced, thrilling story of the mysterious and violent condition affecting a third of the world's population. In Hater, Danny McCoyne was bewildered and overwhelmed by the horrific changes "the Hate" brought to his city and his home. In Dog Blood, reality sets in deeper as Danny must battle not only those around him but his own impulses as well.

Danny McCoyne is a Hater. He has come to understand that anyone who is not like him, who is Unchanged, must be killed. The urge to kill is a physical need, and it can't be controlled. But as time passes, Danny and others like him realize that if they are to be successful, they have to reign in their bloodlust, at least to some extent. The Unchanged have superior weapons and greater numbers and have sealed themselves inside well-defended cities. The Haters are left to roam the countryside in search of whatever food they can find. The situation is unsustainable, and for Danny, it's even worse, because he knows that his daughter, who is like him, is out there somewhere. And he's determined to find her.

Meanwhile, Mark Tillotsen, one of the Unchanged, lives in a city high-rise apartment, crammed in with his pregnant girlfriend, her parents, and another family. He's a member of a search crew that forages outside the city, looking for food, supplies, and survivors in exchange for slightly higher rations. After a particularly close call with a band of Haters, Mark realizes something has to change. But what?

The story of the hero's journey is nothing new. From John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress to Cormac McCarthy's The Road, literature is filled with stories of a lone journeyman making his way through a world of obstacles and disappointments. Dog Blood, narrated in first-person present tense, is a new twist on an old genre, as the "hero" is a maniacal killer who manages to restrain his instinct for causing violent death only with a tremendous act of will-power. The reader is torn between wanting to root for Danny's success while simultaneously identifying with Mark's plight. In the end, only one of them can triumph.

Like Hater, this book is filled with gruesome descriptions of gory apocalyptic violence, but it has many tender moments as well, particularly as both main characters struggle with their family relationships. Not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach, Dog Blood is a fast, interesting read and will appeal to zombie lovers and those who just like a good adventure story with a novel approach built on a tried-and-true formula.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Terrific sequel 3. September 2010
Von M. Wanchoo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
David Moody returns to the world of Danny McCoyne after last years' "Hater", the sequel picks up where Hater left off. Wherein the Hater plague has struck and converted mass sections of humanity into Haters who roam about looking for the Unchanged (normal) population to kill. Readers are given an introduction as to how the world and specifically the United States has been affected. A couple of third person point of views are given from the normal side before we are rather violently exposed to Danny McCoyne and his fellow Haters.

The Zombie apocalypse per say in this world is a bit different then other portrayals, as the Zombies/Haters are shown to be self aware and intelligent. They seek out the normal humans and kill. This is all they can do. Danny has been traveling and killing humans on the other side but he's traveling with a purpose, he's on the look out for his daughter Ellis whom he thinks is also a hater like himself. Thus begins Danny's sojourn where he travels along with a fellow hater named Adam who is a bit more run down than Danny.

As they both escape a targeted explosion, Danny begins to reminisce about his former life and begins to wonder whether he will be able to reunite with his daughter. Along the way he comes upon a fellow hater like himself who tells him about a plan, which potentially could solve all the hater problems. Not wanting to commit himself Danny manages to extradite himself but leaves with a promise of sorts that depending on the result of his quest, he might or might not come back. It's from here the story then wildly escalates into blood and gore as Danny tries to locate and reacquire his daughter. The Interludes are interspersed in between Danny's Chapters until they come to a logical conclusion.

David Moody has written about a harsh world. The inherent conflict between the Haters and the unchanged is looming as the Haters cannot and will not rest until they have deprived the unchanged of their lives. The writing is rather stark and shows the reader how truly vile a world Danny exists in.

David Moody has to be commended for not shying away from the violence prevalent in such a world and especially for not shying away from the after effects of such violence. The world painted is truly bleak and given the viewpoint from the Hater point of view truly makes it that much more revolting to read (however at this point I must say I was completely riveted by the going on in the story).

Dog Blood is essentially a sequel and one in which the reader has to read the preceding part to get an idea of the author's plan. Was it a great read, yes, will it be for everyone? Probably not. Readers with slightly delicate sensibilities might have to gird their feelings as they give Dog blood a try. Try it as then you might truly experience how powerfully stimulating the written word can be!
