Oodles Of Books | 22 August 2012 | Cindy

I wasn't planning on reading this book right now. Sure, it was on my TBR list but it was pushed farther down. I decided to read it though because both my boyfriend and my brother read it in a few hours and enjoyed it. Since neither of them are readers, I figured it was a good book to get into. Turns out they were both right, and it was. Zom-B is a deliciously gruesome start to a new series that is quick to get through and entertaining until the end.

 

The author writes a quick note to the reader explaining once you have finished Zom-B and you want to talk about it to others, it's going to be quite hard. There are some twists that made my jaw drop (literally) and of course, now it's difficult to review the book without spilling the beans about what happens.

 

Zom-B starts us off with some gore and then settles down on B's story, which is a bit controversial in places because the dad is so racist¹. Other than that, the story moves quickly enough, as we get a feel for B. Once the action gets the started, the book picks up pace and becomes pretty gory. The zombies are different and the shocking events that lead up to ending, left me wanting more.

 

While I was a little disappointed at how short Zom-B actually was, I am glad I picked this up. It definitely sets the stage for a horrific new zombie series that I am sure many will enjoy.
