YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
I've been reading a lot more since my mother-in-law got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas this year. From Dec. 25 till this morning, I've read a but load of books on or about the subject of zombies.
So I've decided not to give the story plots away, but give you my list and review some of the books I've read so far. Which is a lot. It's a total of 40 books in all. I'm going to put a few up with a short review without giving the plot away to much. Lets get started...
Chaos Campus: Sorority girls VS. Zombies
This is a comic book that has probably been out for a little while. The comic starts out at a Frat or Sorority Party and goes from there. This has turn into a very interesting read. No it's nothing along the lines of The Walking Dead comics, but I can't wait to get the 3rd issue. The fact that they have an interesting way to keep people from turning and the addition to the use of a little (lack of a better term), black magick or witchcraft is kind of cool. Now this isn't some sailor moon, rainbow brite meets the undead bullshit. It actually is kind of interesting on the way the story is going from the first 2 issues is pretty good. Especially since there is some lesbian indoendos within the comic. Which is kind of cool because it adds to some of the comic relief after some of the action. And the Thriller reference in issue 2 was funny as hell.
I say this is a must read for those who love comics and would like a change from the norm in the Zombie genre.
Aftermath: Found/Wanderer/ Survivor (by Richard Schwarz)
These three short stories are told from a woman's point of view. Which kind of caught me off guard a little. Because a male author writing from a woman's point of view was kind of weird to me. How in the hell could a male writer know what a woman could or would say during a zombie apocalypse. But as a read more into the story, I think he did a very good job. It was one short series, in which I hope he continues the story because of the way he left it ended the last book. It left a wide open range of where he could go with it. I actually enjoyed these a lot more then I thought. I would recommend these short books to anyone that asks about them.
Zombie Tales (by Robert DeCoteau)
These short stories within this little series I really enjoyed from start to finish and hope he keeps writing more. These short stories take place before, during and s few after the Z-poc. They each tell the story from many different views. The cool thing about them is they are all from different residents within the same apartment complex. Which is interesting. The different views are amazingly different from each person.
Deadlocked 1 (by A.R. Wise)
I like this book. Plain and simple. It starts off with a father at work and then deals with his journey to reach his home when all hell breaks lose. It also tells the sacrifices that he made in order to make it home and to get his family to safety. I am interested in getting book 2 to see what happens next. Not many books can keep my attention like this one did. I finished this book in about an hour. Which lead me to wanting more, but I was broke and couldn't get the next one for my kindle. So yeah, this would be a good read for all fathers and/or males with children.
LZR-1143 collection (by Bryan James)
I've started reading these books about a year ago on my Nook to PC program and fell in love with these books. Specially the twist within book 2. When a book captures my attention to where I can't put it down I literally spend my last few dollars to get book 2, it's a very good read.
I recommend this series to anyone and everyone from those who are starting to get into the zombie genre to the most veteran zombie reader.
There are many more books I've read and will be placing those on a list of recommended reading for all zombie fan readers. I won't be reviewing all of them, it would take way to long. These books are nothing more then for entertainment. Which from time to time you have to do, because there is only so much survival and research reading you can do before you burn yourself out. So for a little while I will be placing books for entertainment purposes only. Though if you are anything like me, you every now and then find yourself yelling at the main character about how stupid they were for doing something that we know to be wrong. (LOL)
I hope I picked a few books that you will enjoy reading and have as much fun as I did reading them. Enjoy!
I'm reading a new book called Aftermath...It looks as though I may be having plenty of time to read...I'm having flu symptoms so I may be getting the flu...Specially after freezing my ass off at the Spookaree camping trip I took my little one...I froze and shivered so hard and so much I was aching when I crawled from my tent and got next to the fire...So with me not being a polar bear like the rest of my family, I may have gotten the flu...
We had fun...The archery, bb guns, spear throwing, sling shots, water balloon catapults, hatchet throwing, paintball zombie shoot, hunted hay ride, haunted pirate ship and haunted house was such a blast.
did you get any pictures? post if ya did.
It sounds like you had a blast please post some picture of the Wicked Halloween fun!
My phone is an old razor and sucks with pictures at night...I have a bunch of pics of the morning fun he had and will place them up after sending them to my computer...He had a blast....
Any new book reviews? I just read Dead Cold by Keith Carpenter and I really enjoyed it.
Synopsis: Dead Cold When a wealthy man with incurable brain cancer spends millions to have himself frozen in cryogenic stasis until a cure can be found, he gets more than he bargained for. Unbeknownst to him, sixteen years into his cryo-sleep the cryogenics company "Eternal Slumber" secretly decides to substitute a vital chemical used in the freezing process with a cheap and untested alternative to lower the company's overhead. This decision ends up killing the first patient they test it on, only to have her dead corpse reanimate and become a flesh killing people and bringing them back as crazed cannibals, the staff is killed and the lab is left to ruin. Three months later the cryo system fails and our hero is rudely awakened prematurely into a world that has been plagued by a holocaust of the living dead. Reanimated Originally a series of online zombie diaries that take place in the "Dead Cold" world. "Reanimated" has been added to this book as a special treat to the hard core zombie fans out there. Bits and Pieces "Bits and Pieces" is a mini zombie anthology with contributions from some of my fellow zombies writing enthusiasts out there. In the back of this book you will find short stories by myself Keith Carpenter as well as from: Thomas M. Stoops, R.R. Alexander, Wayne Hood and the cover artist Matt Ficner.
I haven't been able to read any new books lately...Got a few though...Just haven't had time to read them...Between work, Cub Scouts and getting things straight around the house here lately I haven't had a chance to read much...But will have a lot of time coming up in the next few weeks so maybe I can get my reading caught up....
