Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel
Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel reminded me of the Night of the Living Dead movies. It was updated and delivered in a more modern way. It did however add a couple of interesting twists to the overtold, recycled typical zombie story.
I really enjoyed the concept of how the zombies were created by an evil former Nazi mad scientist doctor. The best part of this was that “patient zero” was different than all of the other zombies he created. I think that thinking zombies are almost scarier than fast zombies (so far my favorite). I also found the, albeit brief, moments from the zombies perspective. Having the brain and the consciousness still alive but unable to do anything about anything, just imagine.
I enjoy most zombie books, just because of the subject matter. Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel wasn’t anything special to me.
It is my opinion that William Dufris tried too hard with his performance for Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel. Emphasizing words for no apparent reason, over acting nearly every sentence. Even the way he said “Chapter #” made me grit my teeth. Many times he spoke too quietly for my to hear. I will have to think real hard before purchasing another audiobook with Mr. Dufris as the narrator.
