Many people have complained about the ending, but I found it to be pretty typical of keene zombie genera, true I would have loved one more page Good on Brian Keene.

If each zombie simply kills one living creature each day, the number of zombies will quickly reach uncontrollable levels. Nothing stays dead for long. Notable exception of insects, apparently. The zombies are smart alzxmiento can use guns and vehicles. The shit has hit the fan and the dead walk the earth! Zombie tiger killing stereotypical black gang-bangers? Listening to Joe Hempel’s reading of Brian Keene’s Bram Stoker Award-winning debut horror novel was a terrific amount of fun, and it gave me a new appreciation for the work as a whole.

El alzamiento

I enjoy a good Zombie film alzamkento much as the next person, but had never read a zombie book before. Joe Hempel’s narration of the audiobook edition sealed the deal.

Your prose can also benefit by not using the word “again” or any word, really again and again t Keenee are too many things wrong with this book. One of them preps for Y2K with a backyard bunker that he builds at great expense I read some good reviews of this so thought I’d try it.


To be fair, this book has a lot going for it. The dead are returning to life, intelligent, determined…and very hungry. Now, everything ,eene a brain gets reanimated upon death AND retains some of its own knowledge. He’s joined along the way by other survivors, but when a rogue platoon of National Guardsmen begin rounding up and enslaving folks, it’s only a matter of time before everybody is set on a collision course.

What you think about the ending? This was a good story.

The two join forces to find Danny and soon run into many alzamienot situations such as packs of roving zombies, backwood cannibals seeking extra food and undead wildlife. Loved this unique book and great take on zombies. It opens with “is his son ok?

The Rising

After a brief spark of interest I really didn’t care for any of them. If that doesn’t sell you on this book maybe the zombie lion and zombie birds will get ya! Over the last few years, though, as the book marinated in my psyche and I’ve become a regular listener of Keene’s podcast and privy to the stories and behind-the-scenes discussions he’s given us about his books and influences, I grew tempted to give The Rising another shot.


The ending was extremely frustrating, as it didn’ This is a great zombie story, a bit different from the others I have read, as these zombies are demon spirits, accidentally released from the void, following orders from their leader, Ob.

One and a half stars grudgingly rounded up to two.

The cause of the zombie plague this time was the government mucking with the barriers between dimensions. I wanted to pick it up and love every goddam page of it and eat if for breakfast and run out and buy everything Keene ever wrote and be a fangirl and run screaming through the rain to get to the front of the line at book signings.

I learned you have to enjoy the story as told by the author and keene that ek probably would want to write it lots of different ways but only have so much time to finish. He’s a great fit to Keene’s sensibilities, and I’m looking forward to listening to his reading of City of the Dead next.

No trivia or quizzes yet. For a start, the zombies have a good level of intelligence. This is copy 51 of signed and numbered copies.
