4.0 von 5 Sternen Not your father's zombies! 1. Juni 2013
Von Marina Fontaine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not into horror in general or zombies in particular, but the idea of Taliban zombies just sounded too intriguing to pass up. I'm glad I took a chance on this one. The characters are realistic (and, unlike most horror stereotypes, actually SMART). The action is non-stop, and the fight scenes are clearly written and exciting. I liked it being set in India instead of yet another American suburb. I liked that the American soldier is portrayed as heroic; that growing up and taking responsibility is is a major theme; that the male lead does not immediately "hook up" with the female. And yes, I did like the innovative origin of the zombies that made them extra scary and unlike the "normal" zombies that populate cable TV (really, what would have been the point of that?). I expected more humor, but this is essentially a straightforward horror story, done with little irony and a lot of heart. The one character I didn't much care for is the child. He was not written consistently, to the point where I was completely confused about his age (he needs a diaper but speaks in complete sentences, obsesses over a toy car yet is entirely cool and collected when the plot requires it). Some people might have a problem with the ending, but I thought it was perfect (then again, I am not generally a horror fan, so take it for what it's worth). The editing could have been better, but did not take away from the enjoyment. Recommended to lovers of zombie genre, military thrillers and coming-of-age stories. The author may actually consider marketing it as YA (13+) since it is actually very clean and not as "gross" as one might assume from the zombie premise.
2.0 von 5 Sternen "Captain David Bremsak was going to war again, and this time it was personal." 5. September 2014
Von Mark Louis Baumgart - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
On the Afghanistan border two top Al Qaeda leaders are planning the downfall of America, and they plan on doing it with an acquired toxin that will kill then reanimate all of those exposed to it.

While this is happening we are also introduced to David Bremsak, American assassin, guerrilla fighter, and leader of Task Force 121. It is he that calls in the airstrike that will inevitably spread the toxin.

We will then switch to the Ghosh household and to the spoiled upper-class teen-ager seventeen-year-old Mayukh Ghosh, who cares little about current events though soon enough he will have to care, and participate in them. We will also be introduced to his mother, somebody he feels doesn't understand him.

As the infection start snowballing, Mayukh and his mother try to escape, and on the way they meet Hima Rahma, who is also trying to escape the rampage. Hima is an elderly school teacher in Dehli, who also writes steamy historical romances on the side, and who is worried about her children in America. It's no secret that during this escape Mayukh will lose his mother, but as they continue to try to outwit the zombies, they run into David, and the three will barricade themselves in a bookstore to whether the night, as the zombies only come out at night. It is here that they will have to rescue teenager Swati, who is about to be raped, and her three-year-old autistic (?) brother Abhi.

But of course things don't work out and they will have to make a breathless getaway, and as they try to find safe ground they will meet on their travels an apartment guarded by old soldiers, a grove full of fruit pickers who escape the onslaught by hiding in their apple trees, and a religious enclave that is run by a gun runner and a hypocritical holy man. No surprises that these don't always work out for the best for anybody.

I bought this in the hopes of reading something different in zombie novels as it is written by an Indian and the novel's storyline takes place in India. And I was both right, and wrong.

My problems are manifold. The first of which is the zombies themselves. They aren't your typical zombies. Once infected, people develop sores, and they die in the throes of extreme sickness. All well and good, but then they become snaggle toothed, and wrap black turbans around their heads, and tear people apart while screaming JIHAAD, (or "Jiiiiiiihaaaaaaaaaad" p 73) and various other Al Qaeda slogans. Oh yes, and head shots won't stop them, but set them on fire and they go up into glittering ash. And they're evolving.

Evidently, if you buy into a zombie storyline, then you'll also believe that when you're zombified in a "28 Days Later" manner, you automatically become unkillable Al Qaedians. Well, no, I didn't buy into it, and only the easily amused will. I understand that Dhar was trying to make a statement, but this goes way beyond heavy-handed, and, for me, just continued to distract, and after a while, just seemed silly. "28 Days Later" comparisons will continue as the reason why Abhi is so valuable for mankind's survival. So valuable is he that the zombies themselves are banding together into lynch mobs to track the child down and destroy him.

On the positive side, the book will have an optimistic side to it, including the ending. Another good thing is that Dhar does a good job of showing Mayukh's evolution from a spoiled boy into that of a self-less and heroic man. I also liked the way that David becomes a mentor, of sorts, to Mayukh, and how Hima will become a substitute mother figure to him. And can love blossom as this motley group travel across India's wastelands? Yes it can. We see, as the novel progresses, how these travelers will become a proto-family unit.

But in-the-end there just wasn't enough good here in this rather generic zombie novel to give it more than two stars.

Deadfall by Shaun Jeffrey.
Hissers by Ryan C. Thomas.
Last Stand in a Dead Land by Eric S. Brown.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Something a Little Different 28. Mai 2013
Von Jon E. Hutcherson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A uniquely entertaining read!

Every zombie story I've ever read started in a fairly large city. Such as Seattle or Minneapolis-St Paul and was told from an American perspective. THIS story, on the other hand, begins in the mountains of Afghanistan and follows a US Navy Seal and the people he encounters along the way as they fight their way across India to a safe zone in the hope that one of their number may be the key to survival of the human race. Along the way we get to witness the coming of age of a young man and young woman, the unsuspected courage and strength of an aging secret novelist, and the inimitable, unintended humor that only a precocious 3 - year old can bring to bear. Even the zombies are different!

Definitely one of the better books I've read in this genre, I would recommend it to anyone
4.0 von 5 Sternen More realistic than Walking Dead--great read 7. November 2013
Von Karina L. Fabian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A friend recommended this book to me, and since I wrote briefly about a zombie outbreak in Afghanistan in Neeta Lyffe, Zombie Exterminator, I figured I should read it. I was not disappointed. The plot was one we've seen before: world is overrun by zombies, but one child may hold the cure so we must get him to safety. However, I was impressed by the realism of how people handled the situations, from tactics I could actually agree with the usual human stupidity I would expect in a world gone mad. I also enjoyed the (for me) exotic locations: Pakistan, Delhi, northern India. I felt for the characters, especially the Navy SEAL. (Sentimental me teared up when he did the heroic last stand to buy the others time, and afterward, a general (also a SEAL) promised to search for him. "We don't leave our own behind.") I will warn you, though: if you hate head-hopping, then this book might make you dizzy. Personally, I had no problem with it and thought it kept the pace fast.

Definitely a fun read for zombie fans.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Weaponized Zombies Galore! 4. Januar 2012
Von Bookman Bruce - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Zombie terrorists? Well... sort of. Zombiestan takes all the best elements of the traditional zombie fiction and inserts them into the current day war on terror. I recently read Dhar's Alice in Deadland and liked it so much that I had to try another of his novels. Zombiestan hit all the right notes for me. There was action, drama and.. of course... Zombies!

What sets Zombiestan apart from some other zombie novels out there is the skill in which Dhar works zombies into modern, real events and makes it all come out naturally... as if it was totally normal and that zombies are simply part of the landscape. What makes it extra fun is that these zombies are smart. They aren't just dragging their feet along and moaning... they are hunters. They are looking for prey, and often the biters find something to bite. I like that the author took the bad guys (Taliban) and had them weaponize the zombies. This was a pretty neat element in my mind.

If you like terror, horror and zombies then Zombiestan is definitely a well crafted and imaginative tale of zombie warfare!
