really liked it

Stephen Jones has done something quite interesting here - arranged for a group of authors to submit short stories in the form of documents (including twitter conversations, transcripts of police tapes, personal diaries and letters) to form a contiguous narrative of a zombie pandemic that erupts in London and the events of the following weeks.

The 480 page narrative that results holds together well with good internal consistency and a tone whereby events are clearly out of the control of the protaganists. Whilst undoubtedly dystopian in perspective, there are enough light moments to offset this. I found the book to be a very quick read and an entertaining one.

Whilst the final two short pieces do not sit as well with the whole as they should have I still found this to be a satisfying experience. Zombies are always with us, we perhaps fail to recognise them in our daily lives...
