Book Review: Shamblers by Andrew Cormier

shamblers_coverShamblers: The Zombie Apocalypse

by Andrew Cormier

Rating: 8/10

I have not been exposed to a lot of zombie fiction. So, with little to no expectations, I dove in to Shamblers. Over all I had a fun time with this. Very fast pace, lots of action. The characters were a bit shallow but each had their own personality.  You will root for the hero and dispise the racist villain, everything you want in an action story. The story follows the adventure, and misfortune, of a couple of zombie apocalypse survivors as they struggle through dealing with other people, while avoiding the obvious danger of zombies. Some twists and turns in the story build enough tension that you keep the pages turning.

If you like zombie stories, you will love this one. If you are like me and enjoy action, there is plenty to found here. If you want a deep, moving love story… this may not be the book for you. Even though the hero falls in love, and you are rooting for it to work out for them, I was not brought to tears.

Content warning. Some strong language may be unsuitable for younger readers, and there is implied sexual content. As mentioned before, the villain is a racist and sexist and he uses some really hurtful language, which only leads you to not like him even more.

I want to thank the author, Andrew Cormier, for providing me with a review ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Until next time…
