Alana Woods' book reviews: Armand Rosamilia's zombie chronicles

Posted by Alana Woods on June 9, 2012 at 8:00 PM

Armand Rosamilia writes about a post-apocalytic world overrun by zombies. He doesn’t explain how it has happened because that’s not his focus, at least I don't think so. His focus is on the surviving humans and how they stay alive, or don’t.

This review covers two short novellas that follow one character: Darlene Bobich. The first is Darlene Bobich, zombie killer, the second is Dying days. The zombies are incidental, really. It could be any enemy the surviving humans are attempting to avoid or, if encountered, kill before being bitten and turning into zombies themselves.

While reading I was reminded of a film and another series of books. Do you remember seeing Pulp fiction for the first time? I had no idea what it was about and I remember bursting into laughter and clamping my mouth shut thinking I’d done the wrong thing, only to hear other people laugh after me. These books had that effect on me.

Then there’s the heroine, Darlene. She reminded me of Stephanie Plum in Janet Evanovich’s series. Vulnerable but not about to let anyone get the better of her. Dying days doesn’t finish Darlene’s story so I imagine there’s another in the pipeline, if not already published.

These aren’t literary novels but I don’t think the author intended them to be. I think he intended them to be easy, fun reads, if you can call zombies fun.

4 stars.
