Disintegration (Autumn #4)
The penultimate chapter in the riveting horror series!
Forty days have passed since the world died. Billions of corpses walk the Earth. Everything is disintegrating. . . .
A group of eleven men and women have survived against the odds. On an almost daily basis, they attack the dead with brutal ferocity, tearing through them with utter contempt.
As a huge David Moody fan and one that really loved the Autumn series that concluded the main story line at the end of book three, I went into this one with some trepidation and reservations as I could not see it living up to the quality of the trilogy. After reading this I can safely say that my initial concerns were spot on. At best, this story would have been better off being played out as additional POV's during the trilogy, rather than attempting to make a successful story on its own ...more
I know everything is relative, and my feelings for this book are not based on it as a individual work, but as part of a larger series. Maybe if I had read this one first I might have liked it, bust as part of the series it felt like a huge let down.
The story sta ...more
Fear. What is does to us. How we react to it. Who we become because of it.
The entire time I read this, that is all I could think about; was the palpable fear that everyone has. Fear of the zombies. Fear of each other. Fear of their own shortcomings. Fear of cowardice. Fear of change. Fear of the future.
Everyone was grappling with it, and we are definitely starting to see the evolving situation with the zombies, wear on everyone's nerves. No one is sure how to move on. The are unsat ...more
introduces us to a new brand of survivors who struggle day to day trying to stay alive and how they
cope with the fact that the world they know is no more. I loved the book. I wasn't able to put it down.
Once again, Moody doesn't disappoint.
Autumn: Disintegration is the fourth in the series and I've made no secret of the fact that I've loved these books so far.

Unlike with the previous two books, I wasn’t really all that impressed with Disintegration. Sure, it’s kind of cool to see how two completely different groups are managing to stay alive in such a horrific world, but the formula David Moody uses is getting kind ...more

That's how I feel right now.
The fourth installment in the Autumn Zombie series by David Moody, Autumn: Disintegration takes you off in an entirely new direction than the previous books. I had bemoaned the fact that my previous read in the series, billed as 3.5, told me the ending of what happened to the previous group of survivors, worried it would spoil the rest of the books for me. I was soon to discover that wasn't the case.
As with much of David Moody's work, the focus is a humanistic one, wherein we ...more
without a doubt I was cheering for Webb to get torn apart by some zombies at several points during the course of the book and swearing under my breath whenever he'd manage to survive.
I was also expecting to see some romance blossom like Micha ...more
The Autumn series is slow, two-dimensional, filled with gawd-awful dialogue and generally a chore to read. The fact that I read the full three ...more
Definitely my favourite of the series so far, and with some of the best writing in the genre, this book alone secures Mr Moody's place in the zombie hall of fame. Exciting events, well crafted and believable characters, and as always a focus on ...more
The penultimate novel in the Autumn series is just as good as the previous ones.
I really value the Hater series, I see it as a wonderful tale of redemption, and so far I'm disappointed in the Autumn series.
