Handling the Undead | [John Ajvide Lindqvist]

Handling the Undead

Across Stockholm the power grid has gone crazy. In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up. One grandfather is alight with this, with hope that his grandson will be returned, but one husband is aghast at what his adored wife has become. Here is a horror novel that transcends its genre by showing what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them.

Publisher's Summary

In his new novel, John Ajvide Lindqvist does for zombies what his previous novel, Let the Right One In, did for vampires.

Across Stockholm, the power grid has gone crazy. In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up. One grandfather is alight with this, with hope that his grandson will be returned, but one husband is aghast at what his adored wife has become.

Here is a horror novel that transcends its genre by showing what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them.

    "Booooring!"

    Classic zombie fans - Beware!
    Slow-paced and anti-climactic. The zombies are not stereotypical brain-eating zombies, either. I'm really wondering if this did translate well, because this was just plain boring. The "climax" was so disappointing - the whole story left me with a bunch of questions but without any real interest in indulging in sequels.
    Seriously, I should have ordered ordered Book Yourself Solid. This was a waste of time. And credits/money.

    "AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!"
    What would have made Handling the Undead better?

    If the Zombies had started eating people


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a zombie book. I listened to this god awful piece of crap just thinking "at any moment the zombies are gonna go crazy and start eating people..." Nope. Never happens. They wake up, they walk around like idiots, everyone feels bad for them, then they die again.
