A Mayhem-Filled Zombie Story
A zombie story through and through with a lot of other elements that lots of people would enjoy. You’ve got mayhem throughout and all of the things that come with mayhem.
Planet of the Dead was one of those stories that I didn’t know I was going to enjoy. Sure, I love zombie books as much as the next guy – but I just didn’t know going into it. Well, I loved it and had a blast flying through this book.
Flowers way of skipping from person to person explaining the story from their viewpoints really made this so easy to read. Even if you didn’t like a person or a point of view – you knew it was going to move on to another person soon after.
Bouncing from person to person can be hard to follow but I thought that Gregory did a great job tying everything together with good narration. Every one and a while I find him to be a little too… flat in his narration (no ups or downs depending on the pace of the story for example) but nothing that would turn me away from another book narrated by him. It’s hard to add that to the story without over-acting the part.
Overall, an enjoyable zombie book by a great author. Planet of the Dead – what’s not to love?
Also, let’s take a second to enjoy the cover art on this. Well done and thought out – this one definitely had my attention before I knew anything about it.
