Sometimes you read a book that not only stands out in its genre, but stands out in other ways. I started reading "After Life" because I wanted to read a great horror story. And that is exactly what I got. Mr. Knuth has written a tale of the undead here that not only grips the imagination, but makes you feel like you are a part of the outbreak. From weaving thru zombie masses clogging the interstate, to raiding corpse-filled apartments for supplies, I was on the edge of my seat and read this in one sitting. I couldn't stop. And the book is not a quick read, at least to me. I found the descriptions of the dire situations the characters had to face vivid and their reactions always realistic, always genuine. This was best illustrated when the characters witness walking corpses attacking and killing patrons outside a diner who soon re-animate themselves. The way their reactions are written shows you the look on their faces as they watch. Sacrifice is made in the name of love that haunted me throughout the book. And that brings me to the bonus this book offers. The underlying love story between the two main characters is so well written it could stand alone by itself. The thoughts that go on inside the head of Alex took me back to times I had experienced my own unrequited love, and the way he acted was spot on.
I recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the horror/zombie genre, and to anyone that loves a great love story.
