The Reapers Are the Angels by Alden Bell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I have to admit I’m stunned.
If cheesy, cheap, Rage-Virus gore is your thing, this is NOT the read for you. The characters, the prose, the themes all put this eerily close to the realm of literature. I kid you not. If Flannery O’Connor ever deigned to write about the zombie-apocalypse, it would read a helluva lot like this. I would never expect a horror-genre book to be so poignant, so (forgive the pun) alive. And I certainly never imagined giving one Four Stars.
Well worth your time and money.
