Welcome to a new monthly feature "Book of the month" and this for November i have chosen Breaking News: an Autozombiography by the great chap N.J. Hallard, I have read this a couple of times now and it does get better with each read and i must say that i am really looking forward to Rising Up: an Autozombiography the sequel which is planned for next year, Breaking news tells the story of the start of the Zombie apocalypse and events thereafter, the characters are really well written and you get a great feel for thier plight and do feel a hell of a lot of empathy for them which i feel with a lot of stuff i've read that the characters are not that deep and most of the time you really don't care what happens to them, oh i did i mention the dog?Also a great feature of the book is the artwork hand drawn by N.J Himself wich is very very cool indeed, see the pictures below, Just Awesome!
So get your order in for xmas, either treat yourself or give it to a loved one, wether they like horror or not it's a cracking read that never lets up in pace and will keep you gripped until the very last page and leave you shouting " I wanna read Rising up!!"
