It doesn't quite become a psychological piece until much later either, thus the slow zombification process doesn't help the telling of the story, other than to get the characters used to the wandering dead, and it should let them feel at least somewhat safe, as they begin to draw conclusions about the walking dead. In short, see previous sentence.

I just finished the book and their names are a blank in my head. There are things about them you love and there are things about them you hate. It is, however, a masterclass in how NOT to tell an apocalyptic story.

The dead are pretty disoriented when they first stumble to their feet. Read in less than 24 hours can't wait to read the 2nd book in this series! They are used by the author to mark the tension of those who survive. First everyone drops dead auyumn shock, horror!
To me, this is a post apoc must read. Even the undead are boring.
That said, I'm probably going to read the other books because they're short and I would like to know what else I absolutely hate about your writing. Any authors or characters we're missing that we should add? Isn't that why we as a culture are so obsessed by the idea of zombies, after all?
I mentioned recently that audiobook versions of the Infected Books catalogue will moldy appearing over the coming months.
For god's sake you idiot, tell us what your characters are doing while they're talking dagid each other. To be frank I really couldn't get into Autumn, it was boring. Good job David Moody!!!

Twenty a bit upsetting. View all 6 comments. Reading Autumn now, I had to ask myself why I waited so long to get this book.
But then they begin to change. The Unfinished Novel and Other stories. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
It was more than a day between when the disease struck and when the dead began moving, and more time passed between then and when the dead began to be able to I mean that as a serious question, because I can't tell. Want to Read saving…. I did, however, like the dichotomy of an unbelievably swift death and the slow, glacier pace at which the dead returned.
It should be noted that while David Moody loved horror, he did not necessarily want to write it. I practically read this book in one sitting.
