As you might have already seen, I’m fast becoming a fan of Mr. Lazlo; his dark, skeptical view of the world fits in perfectly with this novel. ‘Left alive,’ is a post apocalyptic zombie thriller, of the best kind. It is set in an empty, distraught, spiteful world; one that seeps through people skins and turns them into Zombies. A genetic project that went horribly wrong has ruined the world.
This is perhaps the darkest and most demoralizing Zombie book I’ve read, I loved it. No, big love interest and a new society, no, just death, death and more seething death. It’s hard to see how there will be a happy ending in this one. But who reads Zombies for happy endings?
I’d recommend this novel to anyone who likes the dark side, don’t expect a laugh a minute and you won’t be disappointed.
