Blurbage By Schizo Smiley | 24 February 2013 |

For my book reviews, I’m combining two. The first two are the first two books in Darren Shan’s new Zom-B series. The first is entitled, appropriately, ‘Zom-B’ and its sequel is ‘Zom-B Underground’. The first two books are clever and intruging, and as always, makes me squirm while I’m reading…yet Darren is such a captivating writer that I can’t stop reading…even as the creepy ass clown, Mr. Dowling, smile’s spiders out of his mouth…I would have died!!!! I couldn’t stop itching after reading how the spiders crawled all over B. Ugh! Probably my favorite ‘recreation’ of zombies in Zom-B would be how their bones extend out of their fingers and toes. Not sure why, I just find it extremely fascinating. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Shan a few months ago now in New York City where he treated our small group to a reading from both Zom-B and Zom-B Underground….I read each book in a day, as I always devour Darrens books, and as I read the parts that he had chosen to read to us, I could just hear his voice echoing in my head…gave me the chills. Awesome!!!!
