Resurrection: Zombie Epic

The rain is falling and the dead are rising. It began at an ultra-secret government laboratory. Experiments in limb regeneration-an unspeakable union of Medieval alchemy and cutting edge genetics result in the very germ of horror itself: a gene trigger that will reanimate dead tissue...any dead tissue. Now it's loose. It's gone viral. It's in the rain. And the rain has not ...more

The rain kept falling and falling and falling...and like the rain, the story kept going and going and...well, you get the idea. This one ran the gamut with me, good and bad. Resurrection is listed as a Zombie Epic and you better believe it when they say epic. The problem was that it was too epic. You may wonder, "is that even possible?"and the answer is yes. Resurrection needed editing in the worst way. It suffers from a bloated mass of verbiage. If an editor had come along and slashed a good 30 ...more

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

Recently, Tim Curran and Severed Press released this 666 page zombie apocalyptic novel as serial ebooks, and this review is of Resurrection #1. The town of Witcham is under a relentless deluge of rain, which has flooded the streets, washing away homes and even the old town cemetery...but this is no ordinary rain. Some townspeople even believe the military base outside of town is responsible, testing some new deadly bioweapon. Needless to say, thing go awry quickly in this novella length Part One ...more

Torrential downpours are plaguing Witcham, Wisconsin in the Black River Valley. It’s been raining for four straight days and the Black River has burst its banks, sending a wall of water, mud, and debris into the Black Town and Bethany sections of the city. It also unearthed the dead from Hillside Cemetery….there are bodies and caskets everywhere. However, the dead are now rising. On day three of the rains, there was an explosion at the Fort Providence Army Medical Research Facility, sending an ...more

I think this could have used a pinch of trimming to enhance the over all product. Also, spelling and grammer left something to be desired. There was also a serious over focus on smell that ended up using some of the same phrases far too often. These things aside, the length of the novel really gave me a chance to get to know and care about the main characters. I was stressing Mitch finding Chrissy. However, with the level of detail attributed to certain characters, towards the end characters tha ...more

This book is LONG. I quit about halfway through when I realized I was getting really bored. The zombies, were described nicely, and were very...moist, but otherwise it was just zombies. And I was bored.

Then when I finally picked it back up and continued, I fell in love with it. The zombies grew more unique and rather then a 'normal' zombie apocalypse, it grew into some evil insane nightmare that made me very happy.

Let's see, the gore in this book was pretty decent and detailed. But the ending was a total copout, or at least in my opinion. I was expecting some big final battle and the whole thing just ended way too easily. Also the author introduced way too many characters at once. I mean I kind of get where he was going with that but in the end I think it just got a bit tedious. Otherwise this book was OK. I'd read more from the author considering most of his books deals with zombies.

Fantastic zombie/science novel of epic proportions. 666 page HC edition from Severed Press. Highly Recommend if you like zombies!

Wow, talk about breathing new life into the zombie genre (no pun intended).

I have been following Tim Curran's work for a while now and this guy really deserves a lot of credit for his work. His prose and descriptive language is right up there with the very best in my opinion. Some of the passages literally make you feel like you are in the story and the atmosphere he creates is almost palpable. So, how do you put a new twist on the zombie mythos? You pass the baton to Tim Curran who absolutely s

It really felt like Tim Curran put his official stamp on the horror genre with this spectacularly gruesome epic novel. I'm constantly impressed with Curran, every time I read him. He's simply one of the very best horror authors working today. But this one felt like maybe he had something to prove, and prove it he did. There is so much deranged horror crammed into this thing that its massive length can barely contain it all. This is isn't some slow going walk in the park, with long passages of no ...more

“Epic” pretty gutsy to slap that on your book. It’s a long story he wrote I’ll give him that. It’s more bloated than the water logged zombies in the story. It borrows heavily from the rising by Keene, from it by King, and from Lovecraft. It’s entertaining. I was turning pages. I just feel that Mitch made too many trips back to the fortune teller. Stick around and get the full story. This book was epic length for epic length sake. There is no reason for a grimshakes or a Hansel Greta’s witch or f ...more

I needed an engaging, rip-roaring, over-the-top horror novel with frights, mutated beasts, and conspiracies and I knew that Tim Curran would not disappoint. "Resurrection: Zombie Epic" is exactly what it says it is. It's about resurrection and boy is it an epic. At 666 pages it is a long ride filled with so many characters, plotlines, and monstrosites that at times it gets to be overwhelming. The story begins with a nefarious explosion at a military base and torrential rainfall. Horror stories w ...more

One of the best writers of Zombie books since my "Zombie Mania" took over all my reading about 4 years ago.

"Resurrection: Zombie Epic" has such vivid, just plain grotesque and horror drenched scenes, I had to put the book down on several occasions. I started reading during the day - night reading spooked me so much that I was unable to read without thinking about the people who suffered, thingies moving about my room, shadows - which kept me awake at night . . . lights on during and for weeks af

This was okay, it weighs in at a devilish 666 pages however I felt it would have been much better with the fat trimmed and more time spent on editing - no one likes finding typos and repetitions in the final product. I'd prefer a good story than a page count 'joke'.

It's very descriptive and atmospheric especially when it comes to how moist and decaying the resurrected bodies are. However I felt some of the descriptions and character lines were more there to try and shock the reader than provide

I really enjoyed this book, which puts a new spin on the zombie apocalypse genre. Plenty of passages that will make your hair stand on end are found throughout. I didn't give it the full five stars because I found the author's love of description to be excessive. The awful smell emanating from the cursed town was described at least 50 times in the book. However, I wholeheartedly recommend this book to horror lovers such as myself.

I don't like to pan any book, but this one had such great potential that didn't work out. I felt that there were entire descriptive paragraphs that were "cut and pasted" throughout the novel. The concept was great, Mr. Curran's writing is decent, but I think this book could/would have been excellent if about 300 pages had been edited out. In terms of full disclosure, I stopped reading the book a little more than halfway through.

Tim Curran's Resurrection: Zombie Epic is like a bunch of Stephen King's small town horror stories all amped up, enhanced, driven insane and then graced by Tim Curran's dark imagination. In other words, AWESOME. I loved this book. Check out his other books, too. They're all good!
