Review: Zom-B (Zom-B #1) by Darren Shan

Summary: Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power and more. This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, “It’s a big, sprawling, vicious tale…a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!”

My Review:  I FREAKING loved this book.  I am a bit addicted to zombie novels and always searching for more.   This book was unique because it tackles serious issues such as wife beating and racism.  Which of course has been done before but what makes this book unique is the main character struggles with the fact that even though his father is a racist he wants to make him proud so he will do racist things.

It is such a well written book and a very fast read.  IT has one heck of a cliffhanger that will make you scream “the F” at 3am.   It is so good!

The characters are well developed and you are able to opinions quickly believe me because they are so well written.   The plot is fantastic and very well paced.  I couldn’t put it down, I really hated that I had to return my library copy… which just means I will buy it so I can read it again 🙂

Have you read Zom-B… pretty wicked moment huh?
