A hybrid of War of the worlds and Night of the living dead, chronicles the struggle of a small group of survivors forced to contend with a world torn apart by a deadly disease.
Without ever using the 'Z' word, Autumn offers a new perspective on the traditional zombie story. There's no flesh eating, no fast-moving corpses, no gore for gore's sake. Combining the atmosphere and tone of George Romero's classic living dead films with the attitude and awareness of 28 Days (and Weeks) later, this horrifying and suspenseful novel is filled with relentless cold, dark fear.
The one percent of the world's population that is left after a deadly disease sweeps across the planet must fight to survive and evade the increasing numbers of dead who begin to rise up.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Boiler-plate zombie apocalypse book. The entire population dies except for a small minority of those who are apparently immune to whatever caused the mass death. Several survivors find eachother and hole-up in an abandoned community center. While there, the dead start to re-animate. Three of the survivors decide to leave the group and take their cahnces elsewhere. As the days go by, more and more of the dead come back to life and they get more aggressive by the day. Who, if anybody, will survive?
NoticesAdd a Notice
Coarse Language: Lots of "f-bombs". Bear in mind that the author is from the UK, so swearing is not as big a deal.
Violence: Fighting off dead people. Details of mutilated corpses. There are scenes where the zombies attack survivors.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Some of the descriptions of the dead or carnage may be tough for some people. I am a big zombie movie / game / book fan, so it does not phase me. I found it mild compared to other zombie media I have enjoyed.
