SilversmithEning around him as he works in his garden The banter between Gerald and his neighbor Ham had me laughing out loud than once as they beat the odds and fumbled their way through several precarious situations Being American I missed some of the British references but "didn t feel it detracted from this well written novella This is a humorous take on the zompocalypse "t feel it detracted from this well written novella This is a humorous take on the zompocalypse isn t filled with doom gloom gore and body parts well not many I ll definitely be looking forward to the second biteI received a copy of this book through Rosie s Book Review Team I ll be honest and say I don t know much about zombies but thought I d try this and see what they re all about I m assuming that some other books of this genre are considerably gory and scary but this one is a different sort of read There is a bit of zombie like behaviour in it blood and gore and what have you but overall it came across as a humorous telling of a terribly British reaction to the whole situationGerald Stockwell Poulter is earthing up leeks one minute and being attacked by a fellow allotment holder the next Hamilton comes to his rescue and after a bit of toing and froing and taking pity on the rather smug Finnbar they manage to find sanctuary at Gerald s houseIt did start off a little silly but once I d settled in I found much of the humour amusing and enjoyed the writing There wasn t a lot of emotion shown at all and it didn t come across as if these characters feared the zombies but instead ust found them a bit of a nuisance There were reminders of Shaun of characters feared the zombies but instead Dogs Behaving Badly: An A-Z Guide to Understanding and Curing Behavorial Problems in Dogs just found them a bit of a nuisance There were reminders of Shaun of Dead in there with the humour and also of Carry on up the Khyber No zombies in that of course but it was the same stoicism as shown in the dinner towards the end of the film when bombs are falling all around but proper dinner etiuette must be followed Nothing is important to Gerald than getting back home in order to have of course a nice cup of tea regardless of the mayhem playing out amongst his neighboursAll in all this is a small bite of a light hearted zombie tale well written and amusing Gerald Stockwell Poulter couldn t help but feel it was extraordinaryust how uickly his life had changed One moment he was earthing up leeks and the next he was rooted to the spot as Rodney Timmins from the end allotment ambled towards him arms outstretched blood pouring from a hole in his neck and a look in his eye which suggested that he was less after help and after a helping of Gerald What an incredible thing to happen thought Gerald as he watched Mr Timmins stagger through his new potatoes "weaving left and right like a drunkard mouth agape This looks like something I ought to be scared of He raised "left and right like a drunkard mouth agape This looks like something I ought to be scared of He raised hand to shield his eyes from the bright morning sun and get a better view of the events unfolding before him This was funfreebie from Kindle section Edit ust looked no second part yet this was 2017 hopefully he publishes part two but little bummed now.
