Resurrection is my third Tim Curran read and there are so many awesome things about it that you really should just read it no matter what anyone says. I mean, it is a

zombie epic and it is 666 pages long, or at least one of the versions is. I found that to be hilarious and was convinced to try it right there. Also, there is a zombie

clown in it who is terrifying yet funny. I guess that sums up Resurrection quite well; terrifying but funny. I was wondering how any author could drag me through a

zombie novel of this length but Curran did it without too much trouble. I say too much because I did get a little worn out at times and don't think I want to read

another zombie novel for several months. The descriptions of nastiness are so frequent that, if Curran wasn't a master at them, they would get annoying. The story never

really lags though and the book did not feel forced and bloated like I thought it would. Like Curran's perfect novel Dead Sea, Resurrection builds an excellent

atmosphere with its descriptions of smells, sounds, and unknown things lurking in the water covering the town. This is just zombie fun from beginning to end and yes, it

does have a nice explanation for the zombies being there. I can't say that it is my favorite zombie novel though. Dead Sea by Brian Keene still stands tall and proud on

the zombie pile, but this wasn't far below it. I think that I am just burnt out on zombies and if I had read this before Keene's Dead Sea, I would have liked

Resurrection more. Either way, this is a very fun read so if you want to read 666 pages about zombies, what they do best, and how the characters fight for survival then

go for it.
