Reviews of Til Death Do Us Part - A Zombie Short Story by A. Lopez, Jr

chucklesthescot reviewed on Nov. 6, 2015

This was the standard zombie story of the outbreak happening when a person was seperated from their loved ones and trying to find a way home. I read a lot of stories with the same plot so I don't have any complaints about a lot of them being similar as long as they are still enjoyable. So the idea of the story, while not anything new in the genre, was fine.

It was the way the story was written that I was unhappy with. The whole story is connected by the use of a mobile phone. He calls home and his wife and kid are safe, locked in the house. He phones back and they are on the run. He phones back and they are hiding somewhere so he heads that way. He phones, they have moved. It just jumps around all the time with no flow to the story. There is no opportunity for the tension to build around her dangerous situation and I felt no connection to her at all. It was just a bit flat and repetitive and of course the ending was also predictable. It just seems to a man racing around town talking on a phone plus there wasn't enough zombie action!

Bit disappointing really.
