Zombies: The Recent Dead | [Neil Gaiman, Max Brooks, Brian Keene, Tobias S. Buckell, Kelly Link, Tim Lebbon, Kit Reed]

Zombies: The Recent Dead

You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video-gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic.

Publisher's Summary

You can't kill the dead! Like any good monster, the zombie has proven to be ever-evolving, monumentally mutable, and open to seemingly endless imaginative interpretations: the thralls of voodoo sorcerers, George Romero's living dead, societal symbols, dancing thrillers, viral victims, reanimated ramblers, video-gaming targets, post-apocalyptic permutations, shuffling sidekicks, literary mash-ups, the comedic, and, yes, even the romantic.

Evidently, we have an enduring hunger for this infinite onslaught of the ever-hungry dead. Hoards of readers and listeners are now devouring zombie fiction faster than armies of the undead could chow down their brains. It's a sick job, but somebody had to do it: explore the innumerable necrotic nightmares of the latest, greatest, most fervent devotion in the history of humankind and ferret out the best of new millenial zombie stories: Zombies: The Recent Dead.

    "Bad listen"

    I bought this after seeing some pretty good authors had written stories. Overall I was extremely disappointed. You would expect stories in a zombie anthology to be about zombies, but in most nothing happens.

    I think the authors were saving any good ideas they had for other works. After purchasing almost every zombie title on audible I can honestly say this is the worst one here. I could not finish it. My advice is to pass on this one.

    Story
    "Just OK"
    What disappointed you about Zombies?

    Many of the stories are not about zombies, they are zombie-ish.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Mostly apathy, I drive alot so I just sat through most of the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    There were a few good stories and a few good narrators but they never seemed to come together.

    "Not Happy"

    I don't like short stories. Short stories made to look like a novel. Someone different reading each story.
