Book Review of 'Autumn: The City' by David Moody


Autumn: The City, was written by David Moody and published by St Martin's Griffin in 2011. It is available for purchase at www.amazon.com
As a deadly airborne pathogen tears through the city, few are left unscathed by its harrowing and catastrophic effects. Agonizing pain, blood curdling cries and violent convulsions all precede the nightmarish death of choking on your own blood. The immune are forced to sit back helplessly and watch as the world around them dies a horrible death. Life as it was, is quickly replaced by an apocalyptic, dystopian future riddled with the corpses of those less fortunate. Now, just days after the incident, dead, rotting corpses begin to twitch and move as they become reanimated and roam the city.
At first the corpses move about with no sense of direction or even thought, but soon they begin to change and the most basic of human instincts begins to kick in… aggression.
Tortured by the memories of those they have lost and the knowledge that life as they knew it is now over, the remaining handful of survivors must find one another, pull together and discover a way out of ‘The City’.
David Moody has penned a wickedly, original and unforgettable zombie tale. Autumn: The City, will have you cringing at the ‘what ifs’ of the scenarios it holds within its pages. What would you do if the dead came back to life and outnumbered the living one million to one? How would you get out of ‘The City’? The end of the world has come and Autumn: The City has reserved you a front row seat to watch the chaos unfold…enjoy the show!
I am giving Autumn: The City a 5-spider rating and recommending to true lovers of zombie & horror tales.
