BOOK REVIEW: ‘Zom-B’ by Darren Shan

October 26, 2012 by horrorbug | 0 comments

Darren Shan’s book ‘Zom-B’ is a light and quick read, targeted towards younger horror fans, illustrated with a set of raw minimalistic comic book style drawings, and definitely worth reading even when you are not in your teens anymore. Not only do Zombies play a big part in ‘Zom-B’, just like the title suggests, author Darren Shane brings his story back to the intentions and use of the undead of George Romero’s iconic films, addressing social problems, racism, and bullying, yet without exactly using the Zombies as a metaphor for all that is wrong with society. The plot is set in modern day London, but could as well play out in any bigger city around the world where the school building could indeed be “a cesspit”, and bullying a part of everyday life.

BOOKS: REVIEW: ‘This Book is Full of Spiders’ – Seriously Dude, Don’t Touch It

October 4, 2012 by horrorbug | 0 comments

Is it – or is it not? You’ll never know, if you don’t touch it. But if you do, beware! You won’t want to close it before you’ve read the last page, and then you are frustrated that it’s over already. Don’t worry, you’re not required to have read author David Wong’s ‘John Dies at The End’ before you read his follow-up which is not a sequel. But you should, because its fun as well. I wouldn’t want to wait that long, for David Wong’s second novel is a mind bending, corner turning, zig-zagging and amazing roller coaster. There is no way  to predict the next twist, or even see it coming. You may feel confused and slightly disoriented after reading the first few pages, but keep plowing forward; the story will reveal itself in a  horrifying and darkly humorous way. Two college drop-outs who have the tendency to mess things up as soon as they get involved, are meant to save the world from an epidemic outbreak of a host of supernatural and paranormal forces. What they are really up against lets them wish this would rather be your usual, run-of-the-mill zombie apocalypse as some people around them prefer to believe.
