Over recent years we've been bombarded with them in every form from every possible angle. Is there any new way of tackling the zombie apocalypse that would make it interesting again? In 'Tide of Souls', Simon Bestwick changes things up in a way that at first seems fairly for lack of a better word 'shallow'.
The cities are quickly flooding and out of the depths rise the green-eyed armies of the undead. So the few survivors must contend with At this point I suppose we should all be over zombies. So the few survivors must contend with rising waters AND zombies. This lends a different flavour to the usual scenes of carnage in the book's first third which takes in the apocalypse through the eyes of a grimly determined prostitute , but doesn't immediately look to be a game-changer. However, it's in the book's latter parts, focussing on a soldier and a damaged scientist, that Bestwick really changes things up, revealing a real care in his plotting and attention to detail, peppered with memorable characters, an unflinchingly bleak atmosphere and - most surprising of all - a genuine antagonist.
Much more than "just another zombie book", this one deserves your attention. Jul 19, Richard Wright rated it liked it. I've been reading Simon's short fiction for over a decade, have watched him progress fantastically as an author, and was very impressed with his novella 'The Narrows' in the We Fade to Grey antho earlier this year. Tide of Souls is the first novel-length piece of work of his I've tried, written for a range of unconnected zombie books published by Abaddon Books. I enjoyed it very much, though I'm struggling to find much original in zombie fiction these days, no matter how good they might be in th I've been reading Simon's short fiction for over a decade, have watched him progress fantastically as an author, and was very impressed with his novella 'The Narrows' in the We Fade to Grey antho earlier this year.
I enjoyed it very much, though I'm struggling to find much original in zombie fiction these days, no matter how good they might be in their own right. It's a shame, because Bestwick uses a powerful, blunt, and organic written technique to make the most of the bleak horror of the tale, and his characters are beautifully shaped. It was the characters as individuals that kept me reading, more than the quirks of this particular zombie apocalypse, and I closed the book a happy reader.
Even if you think you've had your fill of the walking dead for a while, give this the benefit of the doubt if you see it on the shelf. Jan 13, Raphael Merriman rated it really liked it. I picked up this book because it looked cheesy and would satisfy my need for an undemanding literary version of a zombie movie, almost a "Zombie Waterworld", as the undead rise from a flooded Britain. I was pleasantly disappointed!

The story is told from the perspective of three very well-defined, completely believable characters, and draws you in from the first page. The twist is unexpected and very clever. That's a rare gift in an author, especially in today's jaded market. Jan 29, KimStitch rated it it was amazing Shelves: This story is told in three perspectives as the story unfolds, first a civilian, then military, then scientific.
I was sad to leave each narrator behind, but each was as good as the last. This book brings an interesting twist to zombies, zombies not only created from the drowning victims of the melting ice caps, but also having a sort of hive mind controlled by Can't tell, it's too good. Honestly one of the best, most claustrophobic zombie books I have ever read.
Jan 19, Juanita Tejeda rated it liked it. It started out good and I loved the charaters the only thing that annoyed me was the hint of romance btwn two of the characters only to have the female fall for someone else. The concept for the zomibes was a new and welcomed idea.go

The ending though, for me, was seriously lacking. Feb 25, Laura S rated it liked it. I am going to be honest here and say I expected this to be pants, however, I am happy to report that this book was a damn decent read.
An interesting take on the zombie genre with a nice twist. Feb 07, Paul Hollis rated it really liked it Shelves: Jun 26, Mark rated it really liked it Shelves: Share your thoughts with other customers.
