All Right Now - A short Zombie story By Robert Kent
Hi Zombie fans I have another brilliant read for you today, this time a nice short one for those times when you cant get enough zombies; but you don't have the time to start a long apocalyptic novel.
I have already read one of Robert Kent's books last year "All Together Now" and I loved it, so I was looking forward to reading this.
How can you sneak past a horde of the dead with a screaming baby?
The day Charlie Macomber is born is the first day of the zombie apocalypse. When the hospital in Harrington, Indiana is overrun by reanimated corpses, Charlie's dad must carry his son through the walking dead to safety. But when zombies roam the earth, can anyplace be safe?
A companion novella to All Together Now: A Zombie Story, All Right Now: A Short Zombie Story features familiar characters and sets the stage for the novel.
This novella is mean and nasty and intended for a mature audience. It is absolutely not appropriate for younger readers. All Right Now: A Short Zombie Story is a gruesome, repugnant tale featuring horrific acts of violence sure to warp young minds.
Wow I loved this read, yet another compelling read from Mr Kent, a brilliant gruesome start to the book but not for the feint hearted. With his vivid descriptive writing, believable characters we follow Richard Macomber at the what should have been the happiest day of his life at the birth of his son, but instead he is fighting for their survival.
This maybe a short story but its an action packed and is a horrific, heart pounding read. You are right beside Richard as he fights to keep his new son alive in his arms as he races for safety followed by his battle-axe mothering-law who I thoroughly enjoyed hating. Its a refreshing change to see a guy fighting for survival and protecting the baby.
Roberts characters are so believable but as a new father himself Robert has written this with such compassion only a father would have; you can see his paternal instincts driving him on.
This is such a fab read and I don't want to give anything else away. My only niggle is that I was gutted it was a shortie as I really would have loved a full length novel about Richard and his son, maybe if we all ask nicely.... ;-)
A thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended read especially for those that love their zombie gore.
