One of my first Simon Clark books and will not be my last. Just a great horror story. A town barricades itself against the outside world when a plague turns people into killer maniacs. In fear, the townsfolk begin to turn on each other when they give one person a job which entails killing anyone they think has come into contact with the virus, or who they think is about to "turn".
It took me a few dozen pages to decide if the book would keep my interest. I'm glad I stuck with it as it turned out to be a good tale. It keeps you turning pages the farther you get into it.
From the cover:
"The small town of Sullivan has barricaded itself against the outside world. It is one of the last enclaves of civilization and the residents are determined that their town remain free from the strange and terrifying plague that is sweeping the land-a plague that transforms ordinary people into murderous, bloodthirsty madmen. But the transformation is only the beginning. With the shocking realization that mankind is evolving into something horrifying, the struggle for survival becomes a battle to save humanity."
An outstanding end of the world story. Main character a worthy hero/villan (?). First Simon Clark book, certainly won't be my last...have already ordered another posted book. Highly Recommended to the end of the world crowd.
This is the third book I've read by Clark and and I am impressed each time with his work. Gotten a few more books from here too. If you read one of his books and it is your taste get all you can!
Was ok, zombie theme, well written.
At first I almost put this one down but then I read the reviews and decided to give it a try---glad I did--it is very good, sometimes descriptions are a kind of long and could've been left out but it keeps you interested after you past the first few pages, those were the pages that just didn't interest me but it doesn't take long to get involved with these people and what they are trying to stay away from so they can continue to live.
I enjoyed my first Simon Clark book. I have found a new author to collect.
I enjoy good horror books and this one held my interest. I like fully developed characters and spooky plotlines. Simon Clark is a great writer(while not up there with Stephen King, my all-time favorite, I would certainly buy Clark's books).
