A powerfully somber story...every element from a zombie’s hunger pangs to the helpless terror of watching a loved one die is captured with such beauty, such simplistic language, that it feels immense.
Grounding his characters in real emotion, Marion makes you root for them to save the world even as they simply try to stay alive.
In rich, evocative prose, Marion transports his readers back into the postapocalyptic parable he first brought to life—or death—in his brilliant debut Warm Bodies.
Marion’s ability to develop characters with real meat on their bones leaves a lasting impression. In sum, this is Night of the Living Dead good.
