About Albert Yates

A little bit of a nerd and zombie fanatic. I'm a programmer by trade on the east coast of Canada with 2 wonderful children and wife I wouldn't imaging being without. Writing has been something that I've always wanted to do, ever since writing short stories when I was growing up.

The first book I ever bought was Night Shift by Stephen King, and it terrified me to no end, then I went out and got another.

Henry is so annoying. He starts by moaning about his neighbour Jacob who wandered into his living room one day for a chat while Henry was in the shower. Then locks your doors so he can't invite himself in! It's not rocket science!!! Despite hating his job at the school, he is still brooding over the kids getting him sacked. And then the zombies come. To say that Henry is dumb is putting it mildly. The police are trying to tell him about staying indoors and giving him safety instructions, all of which he is ignoring, along with the somewhat obvious signs that there are zombies next door! He just kept doing really dumb stuff and getting on my nerves.

There is nothing much to like or root for in Henry. There is so much tell and the show that we do get is dull, lacking in tension and uninteresting. I didn't find anything much to make me want to finish this one.

OK, so I'm just a few pages in but it's hard going when you're constantly tripping over missing words and grammatical errors. It's a shame as this is one of my favourite genres, hopefully it'll get better!
