What would you do if the zombie apocalypse happened tomorrow? Would you keep trying to survive and protect your loved ones against a world filled with the living dead? Or would you give up the fight against unimaginable odds? Meet Jack Garret. Wishing to reconnect with his family, he takes them on a much needed vacation to the Grand Canyon. While driving through Oklahoma, a massive earthquake strikes and shatters the landscape. But this is no natural phenomenon, for in its wake, the sun turns dark and the dead crawl from their graves. Uncertain what has happened, Jack leads his family on a desperate journey through a devastated countryside to find an escape from the nightmare. Before it is done, he will face hordes of zombies, brutal rednecks, crazed religious fanatics, and the darkest fear in his heart. Undead Flesh is a powerful thriller of survival horror by Dennis McDonald, the author of 13 Nightmares and Ebon Moon.
Any additional comments?
This book is almost cartoonish in character portrayal. The usual redneck villains, religious fanatics and tough grizzled old guys abound. The story moves along with lots of action and lots of predictable convenient accidents.
Not bad, but not a lot of character depth either.
