  • The Dark Tower: The Dark Tower VII

    All good things must come to an end, Constant Listener, and not even Stephen King can write a story that goes on forever. The tale of Roland Deschain's relentless quest for the Dark Tower has, the author fears, sorely tried the patience of those who have followed it from its earliest chapters. But attend to it a while longer, if it pleases you, for this volume is the last, and often the last things are best.

    Overall

    Stephen King simply blew it on this one. I am a die hard King fan and a huge fan of the Dark Tower series until now. To make us wait for so many years for the release of the final chapter in this compelling and gripping saga, and then end it like this should be punishable by castration! I compare this ending to the television version of "The Golden Years". Lots of action, suspense and drama, and a huge build up to an ultimate climax, then, "Sorry honey, not tonight, I have a headache". I demand a rewrite Mr. King, please.

    The Earth has been torn apart. Everyone is either human or Hater, victim or killer. Major cities have become vast refugee camps where human survivors cower together in fear. Amidst this indiscriminate fighting and killing, Danny McCoyne is on a mission to find his daughter, Ellis. Free of inhibitions, unrestricted by memories of the previous world, and driven by instinct, children are pure Haters and might well be the deciding factor in the future of the Hater race.

    Linda B says: "WOW!"
    "Incredible Book!"
    Overall

    "Dog Blood" is the second installment in the "Hater" trilogy by acclaimed author David Moody. It takes place in England in an apocalyptic timeline.

    The world has been consumed with "The Hate". Battles rage in every conceivable landscape and way between those who are "Unchanged" and the people now referred to as "Haters".

    Danny McCoyne was your ordinary and below average nobody. He is stuck in a dead end job and an apartment too small for him, his three children and partner. His life would forever be changed the day the "Hate" consumed him. Instead of the mild mannered wimp he once was, Danny has been transformed into a ruthless cold blooded killer along with a large percentage of the population.

    The story in "Dog Blood" revolves around this ordinary man who seems to have developed the extraordinary ability to control and harness the hate, a characteristic not shown by many of his compatriots. This ability is detected and refined by others like him for the purpose of infiltration and destruction of the "Unchanged". But Danny's mind is on his daughter, Ellis. He knows that she is like him and is prepared to go to any lengths to be reunited with her. To be with her, protect her, and fight by her side.

    David Moody portrays a bleak and terrible landscape with the literary equivalent of a Rembrandt painting. His rich and very believable characters and dialogue greatly augment this picture. If writing could be considered high definition, Moody is the master of the HDN (high definition novel). You only need to close your eyes to be able to see the rich picture he has painted for you.

    Full of incredible suspense, action, and emotion, this second installment in the "Hater" series has it all. You will laugh, be amazed, frightened, and even cry as you are drawn into the struggle to survive.

    Rarely has any work of fiction attained this level of emotion. I recommend it with all my heart and eagerly await the third installment.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."

    Wasn't sure what to think of this book before I downloaded it. It is a very well written, well thought out book. Lots of zomie action, high quality characters that you actually care about, and a real kick ass main character! Johnathan Maberry has scored a home run with this gem! Pick it up today!

    The first book of Day by Day Armageddon took us deep into the mind of a military officer and survivor as he made a New Year's resolution to start keeping a journal. The man kept his resolution and brought to us the fall of humanity, day by day. We see the man transition from the life that you and I live to the prospect of fighting for his very survival against the overwhelming hordes of the dead. We see him bleed, we see him make mistakes, we witness him evolve.

    In your hands is the handwritten journal depicting one man's struggle for survival. Trapped in the midst of global disaster, he must make decisions; choices that ultimately mean life, or the eternal curse to walk as one of them. Enter, if you will, into the world of the undead.

    Overall

    J.L.Bourne is the new king of the undead as far as I am concerned! He put alot of time, effort and love into this novel and its sequal and it really shows. Excellent development of his characters and the story telling is just out of this world. If you like the undead genre, this book AND "Beyond Exile" are a MUST HAVE!!!!

    Within seconds, normally rational, self-controlled people become frenzied killers. Christened "Haters" by the media, the attackers strike without warning, killing all who cross their path. People are afraid to go to work, afraid to leave their homes, afraid that at any moment their friends or family could turn on them. In the face of this mindless terror, Danny McCoyne must secure his family, seek shelter, and watch as the world falls apart. "Attack first, ask questions later" becomes the order of the day.

    Lesley says: "Terrifying! In the spirit of King or Koontz"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Yes, the story did take a while to get moving, but that remains true with the first story of any "Trilogy". You have to develop your characters properly and David Moody did an excellent job.

    The right combination of the decline of society, tension, suspense, not to mention blood and gore made this book an awesome "read".

    I love apocalyptic novels and this is definately in that category. Can't wait to hear "Dog Blood".

    I am a lifelong fan of the Indiana Jones stories. The thing that really ruins this audiobook is the gentleman who reads it. I have never heard a more mondain and boring rendition of any story. Ben Stein has more passion than this guy. Not worth the download.
