Among the Dead - By Catherine Rose Putsche


Among the Dead is a fast paced, extremely well written story that takes place in the early days of a zombie apocalypse.  The story line has been written in the first person POV of Sam and his brave attempt to venture in to the city of London that has since been evacuated to rescue his girlfriend, Alice.  Before Sam departs his home city of Bristol, he leaves a 130 page document (Tao of Sam) as a survival guide for his family in his absence. He convinces a military guard (David who he has been friendly with) to let him board a coach to London.  Sam soon figures out that the zombies he encounters are lumbering, flesh hungry and show typical zombie behaviour he has seen in many zombie movies.  The biggest question is can he survive in his mission to rescue his girlfriend or will he become something he never thought possible, another victim of “The Walking Corpse Syndrome”.

 

In terms of overall quality, “Among the Dead” is a British zombie novel that is scary in a disturbing sort of way as the world we know is under siege and civilisation is facing the enormous threat of becoming extinct.  It is gritty, compelling and well-balanced that many readers will find difficult to put down.

Among the Dead - By HorrorMaiden


Great start to a zombie epic! Sam seems to be kind of a smartass and full of himself which is something I can giggle over in a hero, ala Bruce Campbell. I look forward to finding out if he rescues Alice from the undead horde and saves the day!

Among the Dead - By Novel Ink


Sam, who I consider to be a very brave man, leaves the safety of his quarantined city when his girlfriend, who is trapped in the city of Essex, fails to check in three days in a row. Sam, essentially unprepared for what he finds on his journey to find his girlfriend, Alice, is in for a rough road ahead.

 

I really enjoyed the survival tips between chapters, I felt like they added a little extra to the story and they were really interesting to read. The writing was really good and transitions between chapters were very smooth. There were a few terms and sayings that I found a little odd, but that’s probably because it’s slang from another country other than the US.

Horrifying and gruesome, Among the Dead is the type of book that horror lovers would die for.
