Thanks for telling us about the problem. But no, Michael and Emma both get away. It's right smack-dab in the middle between low brow and high brow. The bodies of the dead — savagely mutilated, unspeakably defiled — are piling up with terrifying speed. David Moody has created a great group of characters.

I don't see any fourth wall, do you? David Moody, you are a bit of a failbot, and I don't think I much like you. It was interesting to see another cultural reaction to the world dying and the undead taking over.
I know that it was put online for free when he was a 'frustrated writer', presumably when he had had no luck with traditional publishing houses. I thought you said if we destroyed the brain, it'd die!
View all 6 comments. Held back only by the restraints of their rapidly decomposing flesh, the dead seem to have only one single goal - to lumber forth and destroy the sole remaining attraction in the silent, lifeless world: This is a book that every fan of zombie fiction is going to love.

Sometimes we read these stories and gloss over or miss how catastrophic an event like this is. He had no development whatsoever, made no sense, threw tantrums every other page yet was moldy to be that "cool and collected" guy, and really he was just a complete asshole.
David Moody's "Autumn" is probably my most favorite undead story so far. There's a moment in the book when they're hiding out and realise they're davir steadily surrounded by zombies. Reading Autumn now, I had to ask myself why I waited so long to get this book.

It tried to moidy violence, but its execution was more like that of an adolescent death-metal fan's livejournal fiction. This is a top notch zombie thriller that is a slight variation on the standard post apocalyptic story.
Autumn (Autumn, #1) by David Moody
I would more fairly rate this book 3. At the very least, since it is a horror story after all, we can be supremely grossed out. There are no symptoms and no warnings. Moody has an interesting take on this, as his zombies initially are relatively harmless, slow moving and dull -- they don't seem particularly menacing, and our protagonists initially don't believe themselves to be in great danger. I mean that as a serious question, because I can't tell.
The dead all lie where they fell, mouths open, stained in blood, looks of absolutely horror and pain frozen on their face. Autumn dropped this October, and the remaining novels will be available in 3 month autunn.
I think because I've never actually read a bok where there was no character growth. The constant exaggeration wasn't really necessary, since it didn't add any sort of fear to an already dull plot. Find out more about his work at www.
Now, I don't need it pointed zombie novels are not likely to be great literature. To want to befriend anyone to preserve your sanity; to need to befriend even unlikable people to preserve your life.
The rest of the time it was just Michael, Carl and Emma getting in circular arguments, crying, deliberating on the future, getting mad, pouting, magically knowing how to build a fortress out of found materials, arguing again, crying some more, and fighting about the future again.
What follows is an inside look at how the elite German paratroopers fought and their bloody homeward mission to recover the Overman serum before all Europe falls.

If so, reading through this shows that they were not wrong to turn him down. There are no apparent motives and no obvious connections between the victims, but the killings only began when Scott Griffiths and his family arrived in Thussock….
I was pondering this last night, feeling guilty about abandoning this series so soon.
