I just finished EMPIRE by David Dunwoody. This is what I expect from all zombie books. A rollicking good adventure with death and destruction and chaos and hilarity.

Book Review: Autumn, by David Moody

HI I AM DISTRACTING MYSELF FROM CRYING BY WATCHING OLD CRIME CAPER MOVIES AND WRITING BOOK REVIEWS.

I just finished AUTUMN by David Moody and, uh, wow. I will never get those hours back.

First off, I want to get in contact with this author and ask him. Am I supposed to like Michael? I mean that as a serious question, because I can't tell. I mean, if I'm meant to go "Wow, what a lol edgy lol aspie douchebag." and dislike him, then A+ job David Moody! You managed to make a detestable main character!

If not, uh... I mean, there are large parts of this book that read like a teenage boy's idea -- and you all know the kind of teenage boy I'm talking about -- of how they would react to the end of the world that's ~cool~ and ~suave~ and ~can't understand why everyone's so upset about things~.

Which is really fucking annoying.

Spoilers in here! )

MICHAEL: One evening, a patient was brought into my clinic in the middle of the night. He was tortured so badly I couldn’t believe he was still breathing. A man was with him. It was the man on your radio. I’ll never forget the voice. He put a gun to my head and explained to me that my patient had robbed him and that he wanted me to save him so the pain would last longer. I did what I could. He said to come here for my money — my blood money. There’s a place between life and death. Amazing how long a man can linger there.
PRESCOTT: That’s enough, all right? Okay. Bring everything upstairs. We’re getting out of here. Tony? Tony, can you hear me?
THUG: What the hell is going on?
MICHAEL: I know this guy. He’ll have people outside the bank, in your truck,and on your boat. You have no idea who you’re dealing with.
