Fires blaze out of control. Looters are run through with speeding lead. Children scream as their flesh is torn by broken teeth. Firearms insistently discharge in the night air. Overtop of it all, the moans of the infected crowds out any pause for silence.


Men. Women. Fathers. Daughters. Wives. Brothers. All are

A zombie book unlike any other zombie book I have read; the infected seem to be a cross between one's traditional zombie and the 'infected' from the film 28 Days Later.

The characters are believable and their relationships poignant, you really care about who lives or dies, the whys and the hows. Incredibly written, even if there were still the one or two spelling/punctuation mistakes I'm accustomed to finding, and they did nothing to detract from a superbly written narrative.

I found the plot to

Man, I loved this book. I had a bad time with my last zombie book that I tried to get through,

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War

It didn't go so well, and I ended up not finishing it. However, I saw this one, and I thought that I could give this genre another chance. I had to do a bit of begging in order to get this especially shipped from the states, and I was not disappointed. But this book definately restored my love in zombie books, I would probably rate even one of my favourite

Far more engaging and enjoyable than it had any right to be. A worthwhile read.

GREY DOGS, Ian DG Sandusky's, is now available here:

"This is an awesome book! It portrays the psychological journey of a man already down on the world who is thrust into an incredible situation. Zombies, a trek through blood, explosions, and burgeoning friendships -- for me, it had it all. Eloquently written with a flair this avid reader hasn't seen in quite some time. An all night read I couldn't put down." - bklovgrl, Amazon Reviewer

the book was intense
A zombie tale that stands out both because of the sympathetic characters and how the plot unfolds; great if you're looking for a quick read.

This book isn't a masterpiece but it's certainly not as bad as a lot of zombie novels out there. The story itself is nothing particularly original, but it's written in an exciting way. I didn't see the need for the slightly out-of-place sub-plot involving the cabin that's revealed near the end, and some of the phrasing is a bit odd. For example, the rather distasteful "as black as a paedophile's sins" is used twice! Additionally, there are quite a lot of typos, grammatical mistakes, inconsistenc ...more

It does not take much plotting to construct a zombie novel--and Sandusky creates a riveting plot of how the world goes from normal to zombified. Sandusky's problem, however, is in describing this world. Frankly, Sandusky is a terrible at descriptions, unable to clarify the most basic images. Too often I was left clueless as to what is happening. Maybe Sandusky wants to be the Faulkner of zombie novels; however, if he does, he must construct engaging poetic imagery that, when pondered, makes sens ...more
