Publisher's Summary

Zom-B is a radical new series about a zombie apocalypse, told in the first person by one of its victims. The series combines classic Shan action with a fiendishly twisting plot and hard-hitting and thought-provoking moral questions dealing with racism, abuse of power, and more.This is challenging material, which will captivate existing Shan fans and bring in many new ones. As Darren says, "It's a big, sprawling, vicious tale...a grisly piece of escapism, and a barbed look at the world in which we live. Each book in the series is short, fast-paced, and bloody. A high body-count is guaranteed!"

Worth a Listen

What to say about Zom-b? I've always been a fan of zombie fiction, Word War Z being my favourite. When I spotted this I thought I would check it out expecting it to be along similar lines to Charlie Higson's The Enemy series. It's not, but its still worth a go.

When I started listing to this, Zawe Ashtons narration really started to annoy me to the point where after the first 10 minutes I considered turning it off and not continuing. However after a while, whatever was annoying me about her performance sunk into the background and I got into the story.

The story itself is very different to what I expected. I've never read or listened to any of Darren Shan work before, so I can't compare this to his other stuff, but by the end I do think it's interesting. However, you really do get the feeling this is just the set-up and you'll have to go through all the other books in the twelve book series to get the full story.
