    Thanks to the blue sky I have finished this piece of junk I am so sorry, I just could not like this story as much as I tried this zombie story fall flat Why are there so many good reviews on this book I mean here is the main reason 1 The characters know that a bite, blood, fluid or scratch would get them infected but no one thinks to put on leather, extra layers or anything to protect their skin So, they were basically saying Look at me zombie I am a walking fried chicken leg 2 Sherman doesn t make good decision, but yet the author has you under the impression that he is a wise guy Well, he isn t too smart walking into a silent town knowing damn well that the outbreak has been spreading at a rapid pace for the last week 3 The characters language, mostly Brewster is so annoying that I had to stop reading several times to relax my jaw muscle from clenching so hard This guy is super annoying and should have got killed off soon He put a lot of people in danger with his stupid ass suggestions to Sherman And for Sherman to even consider this loser advice is beyond me 4 The author kills ...

    A military focused view of the zombie apocalypse While, were this a real apocalypse, I d arrow straight for the guys with the military grade weapons, it s not my favorite to read Lots of machismo and don t you want to touch my shiny guns and not a lot else Meh.

    OK so, it was a nice try The explanation for why there are fast AND slow zombies was GREAT But unfortunately, not a whole lot else has great merit The characters are all cookie cutter Every military character is the same as the next and they use A LOT of cheesy jargon like FUBAR and SNAFU constantly. making it seem like the author did military research by watching too many movies Also some of the pop culture references seem very out of place such as it looked like somewhere that rejected props from tim burton movies went to die Yes, i get what that means but does it belong in this book Also, complicating the issue of under differentiated characterization is the fact that half of the main characters have very similar sounding names Some other things just done mesh either while having an NSA agent as a main character using safe houses during the apocalypse is cool having an evil agent that is preoccupied with chasing him down that the millions of u...

    I swear, as I was reading this, that I ve read it before 2007ish It s so familiar AnywayZombie book, mostly from the perspective of military personnel A decent idea, but, not my overall favorite If I were interested in military perhaps I d had been able to get in to the book I found myself bored with the military jargon and annoyed with the macho man feel The ch...

    I had a discussion with my wife about what constitutes a zombie story Plague of the Dead seems to be of a virus story The strain hits, turns people into mindless, seemingly soulless, infected carriers , but for all intents and purposes, they are still alive However, when the carriers are killed, they turn into the living dead because they rise and continue on in the attempt to get some food, namely you and me So I would venture a change of the genre to something like infection novels A couple of things that Recht does nicely though are these He distinguishes between the infected and the dead The characters refer to the infected as sprinters , because they are still alive and muscles and what not are functionally normally aside from the fact the attack and try to eat you , and shamblers because they are the dead and obviously their muscles have stopped working properly, mostly...

    3.5 StarsPlague of the Dead is such a fun book if you can call the downfall of mankind fun, which I can as it s just fiction This book has all the elements I love in zombie fiction lots of zombies, great characters and an absorbing storyline.The writing is very smooth nice and easy to read, great description and imagination Recht also uses both types of zombie the fast 28 Days Later kind, and the shuffling, slow Night of the Living Dead kind And there are lots of them, thousands in fact all running and shuffling their way through humanity.There are many characters in this book and it changes point of view numerous times Normally this would annoy me but I really enjoyed it It was interesting to see the crumbling world through the eyes of such different people ranging from a soldier and a journalist to a photographer and a doctor.The other aspect to characterisation I usually have to have is depth, if a character has no back story or substance then I can lose interest pretty quickly, but although the characters in Plague of the Dead weren t written about in any depth, it didn t prevent me from enjoying the book This is quite unusual, but I felt it was because the story in general is a really fast paced read and didn t drag The tension builds as the characters begin to hear snippets of the disease spreading.I also felt the writing was quite sophisticated comp...

    I ve said before that Jonathan Maberry is responsible for my zombie obsession, but what I don t think I have spoken about before is that Z.A Recht s The Morningstar Strain series cemented my love for the undead As soon as I had finished Maberry s Patient Zero, I went on a hunt for another zombie book, and the first one that I picked up was Plague of the Dead, way back in 2009 In preparation of reading the final book in the series, I decided to go back and read the first two books again, even though re reading makes me nervous as hell.Published before every author and his dog had a stab at writing a zombie book, Plague of the Dead captures every single thing about zombie books that I love it starts with a bang and doesn t let up all the way through.The plot itself is fairly straightforward, but what I love about this series is the amount of time put into building a plausible cause for the virus and the fact there are two types of zombies the carriers who transmit the virus without mercy and the true zombies ...

    I am interested in character development than I am in raw visceral appeal that is related to the horror in horror novels Give me some folks to root for and I will read with baited breath every last bit of their stories Sad when they died, thrilled when they live Don t get me wrong, the raw fear and emotions, the violence and excitement of a zombie tale are what makes them appealing It is just that without the first element listed above, the story is nothing than just a gory bloodbath that has little to no meaning to it This story has a good handle on both areas fortunately and keeps you entertained at every turn Z.A Recht has spun a tale worth reading for both zombie enthusiasts and those who enjoy thrillers in general Two seperate stories are told here, one of the military troops stationed in Africa and the Middle East attempting to contain a new strain of virus which has infected millions The other part of the story is of a government doctor working desperately to try and understand the virus and hopefully find a cure for it Morningstar is not your simple zombie virus the dead do walk, for certain, but the living who are infected are also a menace The virus and its impact is well thought out, plausible, and quite interesting Our two main characters, Lt Colonel Anna Demillio of the US Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, and General Frank Sherman who is initially stationed in Africa, begin this story swapping emails about the virus and its spread We return to ...

    I m hesitant to write a review for this book I loved the book, but I m loathe to trip through a review My reviews tend to either read like book reports which no one wants to read or off target rambling which no one should read Despite that, I had to drop a few lines of praise into my 5 star review here.This book is incredible It s hard to do something new in the zombie apocalypse genre, and this book isn t anything vastly different from what s out there already However, I do love the way the author moves effortlessly between the stories of the survivors It s rarely this seamless And I love that it takes you from the beginning of the outbreak and shows how the government screws the pooch on first controlling the outbreak and then containing it It s easy to imagine this scenario playing out with our government Even as the Morningstar virus begins to spread exponentially government officials are hell bent on suppressing information about the outbreak You don...

    I watched the trailer for the new AMC series, The Walking Dead , and couldn t wait until Halloween night to get my zombie on, so I m on a bit of a bender Monster Island uh, NO see my review for details Feed LOVED IT see my review for details Forest of Hands and Teeth Did not love, but I am still thinking about it see my review for details.And now, Plague of the Dead.This has the most action since World War Z The book starts in Setember 2006 with a few emails from two of the main characters, Anna Demilio, a military virologist, and General Sherman They converse in hypotheticals about this Morningstar virus, and what it could do, how fast it could spread, etc In December about 40 pages in , is the first real world Morningstar case, and the book covers the next 60 days, at which point the world is in smoking, zombie filled ruins.If you want good, solid, zombie killing action here s your winner Basic archetype characters, no one to really put on my favorites list, but that s OK I went in for the zombies anyway.This book has infected, or carriers, like 28 Days Later meaning they are fast, and the blood is toxic They are still alive, but not self aware They can be killed like any human, but unless you got...
