My thoughts:

 

I bought this through Amazon and I have to say, I was not disappointed. With all of the zombie books out there I’m sure it’s difficult for authors to come up with something new and exciting to keep us reviewers happy. Well, Christine Dougherty did a fabulous job with this one.

 

I started off really excited with this plot. It’s really interesting to see this Zombie, Inc company and how they make up their rules. I get the reason for them but at the same time I was literally laughing so hard that tears were flowing down my cheeks.

 

Everyone’s story sucked. End of story.

 

And the things that people say! This is like thirty years into our future and everything that we know is dead and gone (well pretty much). No television or computers. Definitely no internet. Just work, work, work, work. So when things like…

 

Carl hesitated, unsure, wishing again that he had some James Bond knowledge. Or at least some Die Hard courage.

 

when that stuff pops into Carl’s head, I just had to laugh. He and Dill are absolutely fantastic characters, although somehow Christine Dougherty has me attached to all of her characters somehow.  I wanted everyone to come out of this unscathed or more importantly, unbitten!

 

And while reading this I had so many questions. Questions that fortunately were answered before the end of the book! (YAY Christine!!) Sadly, there’s so much in this one… it’s not a long read but it is fun! More fun than it honestly should be considering people are getting killed left and right but hey… I’m into blood and guts ;)

 

The fabled forty-hour work week! She almost laughed. What the heck did everyone do with their extra time back then? Dad had talked about weird things like people beign pumped for Fridays and getting gloomy on Mondays.

 

 

 

About The Author:

 

 

 

Christine Dougherty is a native of South Jersey where she lives with her husband, dog, and two cats. She has been published in The Absent Willow Review, Niteblade, Necrotic Tissue, and Fiction at Work.

 

She draws heavily from the landscape she knows and many of her works have at least some element of South Jersey and the Tri-State area, meshed with a dark imagination that has plagued her since before she can remember.

 

A graduate of Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Christine has made her career as a graphic artist, art director and writer.

 

Christine’s greatest influences are Stephen King, Margaret Atwood, Anne Tyler, Dean Koontz, Wally Lamb and a fascination with the scarier aspects of life, be they paranormal or criminal.

 

She writes in the genres of horror, paranormal, and psychological thriller and is never happier than when she is tackling the undead, the walking dead, werewoles, vampires, zombies, ghosts, aliens, spooky scenes, scary characters, psychics, demons, devils, and quirky heroes and heroines. **From Christinedoughertybooks.com**
