But, seeing as I was already a third of the way through the story, alzaminto this did win, and it was a pretty good story, I pushed on.

The Rising (The Rising #1) by Brian Keene

This is so different to a normal zombie story. I loved the originality of this story. 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.

This was the Alzamiebto Brian Keene book that I picked up, and to be honest The solution was so simple to me yet the author writes an entirely unnecessary ghastly scene for shock value and emotional effect. The zombies were not your stereotypical zombies; they were far more mobile, and capable of using tools, weapons, and setting traps to catch the foolhardy mortals who they hunted.


Worse, the author throws so many characters at you that I found it hard to really connect with any of them. These zombies do not aimlessly walk around craving flesh as we are use to seeing and reading about. Jim fights his way out of the shelter by killing his undead neighbors and even his undead second wife, who taunts him with his unborn daughter.

And if you’re new to Keene: The ending has been much spoken about, but completely worked for me – wl if the eventual sequel cheapens it to some degree. The roots of the zombies is a bit corny, but still interesting. Supposedly the zombies are angry and evil and have overrun the world and are living on human flesh which is in short supply.

I like my zombies slow, dumb, and numerous.

Secondly, WAY too much swearing. Apparently to find out the answers to these questions I need to buy book 2. Second, I’ve been a horror fan for a long, long time and I’m quite used to the treatment of women in horror stories being less than stellar. He gives us more in other short stories as well. If I thought I could save my kid, Alzwmiento take the chance too.

As any newly dead creature will rise as a zombie, the author’s story runs into a major logic problem that I couldn’t shake.

The Rising

I realllly enjoyed this book. Nothing stays dead for long.

Miraculous rescue once, sure. The host of Hell? I absolutely could not believe what the characters had just allowed to happen.

That said, let me tell you, I really really wanted to love this book. The gore and violence level is pretty high. The Rising is the first book in a series of zombie-themed horror novels written by author Brian Keene.
