Book Recommendations - Zombies

I know what you are thinking but these two books are not your typical zombie book. These are different and you will enjoy them.





First is a book by Hugh Howey. This book is very different. It is told from the viewpoint of the zombies. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is also very descriptive. When I say descriptive, I mean descriptive. If you are even a little bit squeamish then you might not like this book. If reading about tearing into flesh, from the zombie perspective interests you, then read this book!

From the books blurb:

***WARNING: NOT FIT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION***

This book contains foul language and fouler descriptions of life as a zombie. It will offend most anyone, so proceed with caution or not at all.

And be forewarned: This is not a zombie book. This is a different sort of tale. It is a story about the unfortunate, about those who did not get away. It is a human story at its rotten heart. It is the reason we can't stop obsessing about these creatures, in whom we see all too much of ourselves.



Next is a book by John Ajvide Lindqvist and it is from the opposite end of the spectrum for those of you that are just tired of reading about flesh eating zombies. I wouldn't even call this a horror book. It is more about what do we do when the dead become, well, undead.

From the books blurb:

Something peculiar is happening. While the city is enduring a heat wave, people are finding that their electric appliances won't stay switched off. And everyone has a blinding headache. Then the terrible news breaks – in the city morgue, the newly dead are waking.
David always knew his wife was far too good for him. But he never know how lost he'd be without her until the night she died. Now she's gone and he's alone. But when he goes to identify her body, she opens her eye…

Across the city, grieving families find themselves able to see their loved ones one last time. But are these creatures really them? How long can this last? And what deadly price will they have to pay for the chance to see their spouses and children just one more time?
