Ach! Zombies!

Standard

Alright. So I’m back on a fiction kick. It’s been years, really. I started with a Christine Dodd book called the Scent of Darkness. A cursed werewolf-type man (who is also an international winery CEO) is under attack by similarly-cursed assassins. So, he must escape the killers, and hunt them down, while he protects and falls in love with his attractive executive assistant. I didn’t finish it yet, it’s not my favourite book. I find that each chapter kind of…sounds the same? So I put that one down and started reading other supernatural stories: Let the Right One In and Zombie, Ohio.
Let the Right One In is about a vampire, not zombies. I found it to be an engrossing read that I was excited to get back to after necessarily taking breaks from reading (for such things such as eating and going to work, etc.). If “un-put-down-able” was actually a word, I might use it here to describe Let the Right One In. Also, if you’re nerdy like me, you might be interested that several movie adaptations have been made of this international best-seller by Swedish author, John Ajvide Lindqvist. Super good book that I’m recommending to everybody.
I’m slowly finishing another book called Zombie, Ohio by Scott Kenemore. I didn’t get into this book as easily as Let the Right One In, but it certainly has its appeal. It’s a much lighter tone/mood than in Right One, more like dark humour than paranormal drama. The main character is “the Kernal” a former professor who finds himself the de facto leader of a battalion of zombies ravaging the Ohio countryside. Like I said, I’m not quite finished this one, but I’m excited to see how some of the sub-plots are tied up.
