Freaky, but a great book. I look forward to the others in the series. More psychological than just horror. Highly recommend. ( )

A quick read that kept me entertained from start to finish. ( )

This is a easy read but still have some intense moments. I've really enjoyed the story so far. I'm looking forward to reading the next book. There is a certain level of grossness, but not too bad. btw, to all my friends, if 99% of the population drop dead and I'm still alive, I'm beheading any of you who are down. I want you to stay down!!! ( )

Truly just an OK book. The character's are not well developed and well, kind of dumb. At first the rising dead aren't dangerous, but everyone is freaking out about going outside. Umm...go get supplies! Some of the characters are just plain jerks. The two main male characters fight without reason like 10 and 13 year old brothers and it doesn't add to the story at all. Just thrown in for conflict I guess. It ended up just being irritating. The seems almost like a young adult book, but there are no young characters so it's not in that category. ( )

Book description
As a sudden, inexplicable disease kills nearly all of the people in and around the city of Nothwich, the very few survivors attempt to build a new life for them. But their troubles have only just begun.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 031256998X, Paperback)

A bastard hybrid of War of the Worlds and Night of the Living DeadAutumn chronicles the struggle of a small group of survivors forced to contend with a world torn apart by a deadly disease. After 99% of the population of the planet is killed in less than 24 hours, for the very few who have managed to stay alive, things are about to get much worse.  Animated by "phase two" of some unknown contagion, the dead begin to rise. At first slow, blind, dumb and lumbering, quickly the bodies regain their most basic senses and abilities... sight, hearing, locomotion...  As well as the instinct toward aggression and violence.  Held back only by the restraints of their rapidly decomposing flesh, the dead seem to have only one single goal - to lumber forth and destroy the sole remaining attraction in the silent, lifeless world:  those who have survived the plague, who now find themselves outnumbered 1,000,000 to 1...

Without ever using the 'Z' word, Autumn offers a new perspective on the traditional zombie story. There's no flesh eating, no fast-moving corpses, no gore for gore's sake. Combining the atmosphere and tone of George Romero's classic living dead films with the attitude and awareness of 28 Days (and Weeks) later, this horrifying and suspenseful novel is filled with relentless cold, dark fear.
