Rot and Ruin by Jonathan Maberry

20160505_131651

This is the first of four books in this zombie series I am reading. Now normally I steer clear of these types of books, because I think it is an annoying topic. I mean I don’t even watch the Walking Dead, because the zombie thing just has no appeal for me. I purchased this series because it was in the bargain section at Books-A-Million. I mean at 3 bucks a book, it ain’t bad. And they are very thick. 458 pages. 55 chapters. Epilogue. 3 sections. The next chapter in the second book. Loved it.

But in Rot and Ruin was a book that looks more into the lives of the people who are surviving after First Night. The main characters are Tom, his little brother Benny, Nix, Chong and Morgie and The Lost Girl. You have bounty hunters, you have carpeted horses, and cadaverine; Gameland and the Hungry Forest.

What I like about this book is the raw emotion that is written, and what you can imagine what people would do in this type of situation. It brings some tears up, yeah, I get teary eyed. But it is incredibly sad and it just lets you know how people will really do anything for power, which is what we see now.

I know that this book should give people the idea of how to live off the grid. Because if this was to happen, a lot of people are lunch, dinner and dessert lol.
