Filing Review: The Living Dead by George A. Romero & Daniel Kraus
I went to the library a few weeks ago and found this new release. I mused perhaps it was time I let an expert better familiarize me with ghouls.
This book defied my expectations. It did not scare me with the monsters but with the degeneracy of some of the human characters. This book is a significant comment on humanity and so timely in coming out in the pandemic.
It is one of the very best books I have read in recent times. The final chapters were so unbelievably well-done that I was in tears for many pages.
I do not think a five-star rating does this book justice. Go ahead, indulge me, and let me say it is a ten. You should read it. I highly recommend it. It is a bit long, though, maybe plunge into it over a couple of weekends.
A full-post review, you know I loved it.

I may have to look into this one. Walking Dead is big into the human degenration under crisis situations, but I prefer the humans vs zombies than humans vs humans.
My favorite zombie books are the Newsflesh trilogy by Mira Grant. The first one “Feed” merged two of my favorite things, blogging and zombies.
This is humans vs. zombies. If I messed that up, I do not know what to say. This is the original creator of Zombies as modernly known and his co-writer.
