A missed opportunity to do something fresh. Instead, just more of the same old, same old. 21 aprile 2010
Di D. J. Davis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I wanted to like this book. I really did. And because of that, I ended up giving it more of a chance than it really deserved, pushing on until I actually finished it. I should have saved myself the time.

The premise of the book is one that was obviously inspired by Dan O'Bannon's "Return of the Living Dead." In the film, two characters at a medical warehouse discuss the "true" incident that inspired "Night of the Living Dead." That incident was the release of "Trioxin" gas at a VA hospital, which caused the dead to reanimate. Fans of the film know what happens next.

"The Real Night of the Living Dead" puts forth its own version of the "true story" behind the film. It presents itself as a "survivor's account" of a 1951 zombie outbreak at Byberry State Hospital in Philadelphia, this time caused by an experimental polio vaccine.

This gimmick was the main reason that I bought the book. NOTLD and ROTLD are two of my favorite movies. Realizing that this was a self-published effort, I expected a loving, if slightly amateurish homage to the two films. A book for zombie fans by a zombie fan. The other reason I bought it was the unique setting. Most zombie fiction is of the post-apocalyptic variety, and I was looking forward to something a little different.

Unfortunately, "The Real Night of the Living Dead" doesn't deliver. It's actually a little frustrating, because the potential for a really good horror story was there. Setting the book in a `50s-era mental hospital gave Mr. Kramer the chance to do something relatively fresh with the zombie genre. But he doesn't. Instead he tries to make the standard "survival horror" trope fit into his setting, and it doesn't work. We don't get any moody, atmospheric descriptions of the hospital and its grounds. We get a series of repetitive, almost interchangeable action scenes in which the narrator fights some zombies, runs to the next room, and fights some more zombies. It came across more like a video game than a horror novel.

Mr. Kramer should have found a co-author to help him flesh out his ideas a little more. There were some really good concepts here; they just weren't developed very well. I think it would have been interesting to see what a more experienced storyteller could have done with this material.

Why? 21 gennaio 2011

Okay, I got the book and realized that it was a self-printed - but it REALLY cheeses me off when the author or editor cannot even edit the book properly (by hand and not spell-check) and it is rife with grammatical errors. It reads like it is written by a teenager. I would really like the book if it were put together properly instead of the slipshod way it is written and the pages have the title in huge bold fonts at the top. If it were formatted properly, the book would have been 60 pages.

A really great zombie novel...except for the last couple of pages. 27 dicembre 2009

All in all this is a wonderful read; sure, the author borrows a little from the first "Return of the Living Dead" film (mainly the origin story told at the beginning of the picture), but that's easily forgiven. The previous reviews are much for detailed than this, but if you do purchase this book do yourself a favor and skip the last 3 pages or so...it's a cheap gimmick that only serves to weigh down what is essentially a fun & fast book (that is if you consider a story of flesh-eating fiends fun). I understand why the author left that particular door open for a possible sequel, but the whole revenge element just doesn't fit well with the character written. Opinions are like a-holes, but I would have very much liked that this novel blossom out into a series with several first person accounts given of this "vaccine" being tested again and again throughout the decades. Just a thought! Any way, if you like zombie stories then do yourself a favor and pick this one up, it will not disappoint you...except for the last three pages or so.

It made you think about what really happened in hospitals during the 50s and 60s. Made perfect sense and the writing was interesting. Left you wondering if anyone was going to make it out alive.

A fairly different take on the zombie genre. Nothing truly unique about it, but the story progression was good. Characters were reasonable, action was pretty good, and the ending was well thought out. A decent read.
