Autumn: Disintegration by David Moody
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Griffin
Age Group: Adult
David Moody takes you through the paces of the zombie apocalypse with characters you could live next door to, and action and description that will take your breath away.
With the world at an end, Moody throws us right into the action and turmoil of the apocalyptic world. Zombies are everywhere and people are just starting to try and get along with strangers to make survival possible.
They think they’re safe in the cement fortress, but soon they find that they were wrong – one of them gets sick and they realize nothing is in their control.
The zombies become more aggressive and they are forced to move their home base…but to where?
They pack up what they have and head out to a land beyond repair with no clear destination. They find somewhere to stay, but again their security is false.
A larger horde of zombies is closer and is hungry for their flesh. Will they survive yet again? Or will their humanity and fear get the better of them in a diseased world?
The book is fast moving, well written, and interesting. The character’s personalities are varied and you get a decent sense of each of them. The only compliant I have is that people have names that are somewhat similar (since they tend to call each other by their last name) and I sometimes got confused on who was who until I got back into the story. This might not be a problem for those who read straight through, but because of my schedule I had to stop and start a couple times. After a chapter or so, I was fine and had everyone straight. So, I give this book 2 QUILL.
