Eden: A Zombie Novel by Tony Monchinski TOUR

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Synopsis: Inside its walls, a community of survivors scratches out a terrifying existence.  Outside, hordes of undead pound relentlessly against the barriers and rattle the gates of the humans' last sanctuary-- Eden.

Overnight, the world transforms into a barren wasteland ravaged by plague and overrun by hordes of flesh-eating zombies.  In the aftermath of the gruesome destruction of New York City and its inhabitants, a small band of desperate men and women stand their ground in a fortified compound in what had once been the outer borough of Queens. Those who built the walls of Eden fell prey long ago to the undead…those who remain survive by sheer determination, camaraderie, and human ingenuity, making forays into the outside world through the network of pipes under the city streets.

Harris—the exceptional honest man in this dead world—races against time to solve a murder while fighting to maintain his own humanity.  Ultimately, the danger posed by the dead and diseased masses clawing at Eden’s walls pales in comparison to the deceit and treachery Harris faces within.

About the author: Tony Monchinski is a high school teacher and lives with his family in Peekskill, New York. His other novels include I Kill Monsters, Fury, and the sequels to EdenEden: Crusade and Eden: Resurrection.

Review: Eden by Tony Monchinski is fast paced novel full of surprises. I really liked this novel because the action started right off in the beginning. Although some people may find going between the past and the present a little off putting, I thought it was great. It gives the reader a chance to get to know characters and it shows the parallel between their past and present attitudes, which I find essential in apocalyptic novels. Plus, it isn't everyday you get to read a zombie novel with an ex school principal as the main character. Harris is awesome and makes for a great leading character. The only complaint I have would be the chapter titles, there were none and I think this would've really helped with going back and forth between past and present. Overall, I found this novel a great read. It was a scary and gritty story with a dash of mystery to it. I highly recommend this novel for anyone who enjoys apocalyptic stories especially those with zombies.
