I quite enjoyed Zombie Apocalypse, the first of these two Zombie anthologies, that looked at an infection that had sprung up in the U.K and which dealt with the ramifications and repercussions that followed, so had big hopes for this sequel. True, the last book got a bit shoddy at the end and began to get a bit silly but still, it would be great to see what happened next I thought...
This book advertises itself as a continuation of events that tells what happens when humanity begins trying to claw its way back to the top of the food chain following events in the previous anthology. Those who have read that book will recall that the plague was released after builders opened up an ancient tomb in preparation for a big celebration of everything British.
What we get instead for a large chunk of the book is a lot of material dealing with the past and the original origins of the plague as researchers try to go back into the history of the person whose tomb was opened. A bit like Who Do You Think You Are then but with Zombies...
This is all well and good but, frankly, I found it all a bit...well, boring. I wanted more action, something to stimulate and hold my interest instead I got...this.
Boring, boring, boring ~ those three words adequately describe my feelings when reading this book. Here's some more ~ not impressed, dull as dishwater, worse than watching paint dry. Yes, all these words describe what I felt reading this.
I wanted to like it....but I couldn't. Though the last book ended badly, this is ALL bad. Don't waste your money ~ get it out o the library. Even better, don't bother and pretend you did. Your imagination could probably conjure up a much better effort than this sorry excuse for a Zombie novel!
