Review by: Graham Murdo on Aug. 26, 2014 :
Well I have read both books one and two now, and have to say that the story, the settings and the characters are great. This could be a really great series if you're into post-apocolyptic zombie survival stories. As with almost all Zombie stories the "science" behind how zombies might be able to keep moving with missing body parts, never mind how they might come about in the first place is non-existent. If you can get past this not so minor hurdle then fine this series of books has some promise... apart from one thing.

The spelling, grammar and sentence structure is appalling. These books badly need the tender mercies of a decent editor. I feel like I'm banging my head against a brick wall each and every time I write a review on smashwords as every time I have to fault potentially great books on basic stuff like spelling and grammar. Many writers seem to be under the impression that it doesn't matter, well it does matter and it matters a lot. Poor spelling and grammar can render the most brilliant story almost unreadable. I and most other people read because we enjoy it, there is no enjoyment in having to read a sentence or paragraph over again whilst trying to decipher what the writer means. To be fair I know everyone makes mistakes, and professional proofreading/editing can be expensive, however if a writer truly wants to be taken seriously then this is an issue that needs to be addressed. I myself would certainly be willing to act as a proofreader/editor to writers providing free material for no fee and I feel sure that there are others who use Smashwords who would be willing to do the same. Perhaps Smashwords could field a directory of volunteer editors similar to their directory of those who undertake e-book formatting?

So to reiterate good story, great characterisation but let down by the quality of the writing, if you can live with this then you will enjoy this book and those which follow.

Review by: Frank Lee on Nov. 24, 2013 :
Zombie by any other name is still a Zombie!! Another UK writer who doesn't like that "Z word" in their book for whatever reason. As with most zombie lore, the interesting part of the story is with the people trying to survive. This story is no different and offers interesting story lines which come together and inter-twine at various points. Good character development. This book will keep you flipping to the next page. Much recommended for UK zombie fans. (He uses a lot of actual central UK places in this book).

An awesome book with some commendable twists. The story contains every sort of emotion be it fear, love or anger. The tragic end of the pointer family made me cry. Loved the character of the nurse Karen. I RECOMMEND it to all horror tale lovers.

Waiting for the sequel.
