I, Zombie by Hugh Howey


Leggi questo articolo in Italiano

I read and enjoyed a lot Wool of Hugh Howey, however not all his novels are good as that one.
I, zombie deals with the zombie theme changing the point of view of narration, for this reason each chapter contains thoughts, observation and memories of the various zombie characters.

I did not like this book for different reasons:

  • the narration is not engaging and the few action scenes are quite boring;
  • chapters contains lots of reflections of the characters that partly are not zombie related and in the end boring;
  • the characterization is not very good, in the end it’s like there is only one of two voices talking despite the huge number of characters involved (in this sense a better work was done in World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War where characters behave with respect to the contest where they live).
