EXCELLENT READ!!

Mr. Moody has done it again. He has managed to captivate us with his uncanny insight into the human mind and heart. Autumn The City, much like its predecessor, Autumn, is more a story of human behavior than zombie carnage. When all is stripped from the world as we know it, how will we react? Will we lay down and wait to die or fight ruthlessly to live another day? This is a pulse pounding page turner that will leave you angry that the next installment is not immediatley available for download!!! The characters you follow in this story are average, everyday people living in the most catastrophic situation imaginable. You empathize with their plight and root for their survival. Start with Autumn, continue with Autumn The City and wait with bated breath for AUTUMN: PURIFICATION. Bring it on, David, I am beyond ready!!

There is not one attack in this book.......literally not one character is harmed by a zombie. I read the first one and even sought out the horrible movie. The second book is 250 pages of absolutely nothing happening. There are whole chapters dedicated to the discription of what can best be discribed as non-events, occurrences which add nothing to character or story arc.10-15 pages to say "then this happened". The writing is overly simplistic, the characters border on functional retardation, the timeline and introduction of new people and places is enough to cause aneurisms from sheer frustration and then NOTHING HAPPENS.I am not a jaded fanboy, I am an avid reader who happens to be a discerning fan of the genre and being such I am generally reluctant to label ANYTHING of ANY artistic merit simply "bad". This book was bad. I would have gladly paid ten dollars to the writer of an honest review that would have precluded my ingesting this unabashed waste of time (mine), money (was mine), and doubious effort (author's).

    Great Read for Dystopian Fans

    Loved the entire Autumn series. I just finished the 5th and final book. I think Autumn the City is second only to, Autumn Purification. The final book was a bit of a "bummer"; but I suppose not everybook has a happy ending. Read this series and the Hater Trilogy, you'll be glad you did!

    short story: 2 to 3 hours of reading material for this book!

    I'm not sure why I write reviews for Nook books, it seems as though all my reviews are removed. Autumn The City is a great book and the Autumn series is fantastic and I enjoyed all 6 books. The books are very short so, keep this in mind and don't be let down that these books are short or about 3 hours or so of reading. To be honest, series should consist or be condensed into 2 books of value and not 6 books of overvalue. So, the Autumn series is well written and detailed oriented, this is not a super fast moving story but, rather a slower, deep thought story with a lot of detail and I enjoy this type of writing so, good stuff as far as I'm concerned. The author really makes you feel connected to the characters and their situations. Just remember, these are short books or averages around 235 pages, not much reading material.

    I picked up Autumn: the City without realizing that it was the second in a series of five. I knew David Moody from the Hater series, and knew that lots of people knew him from Autumn. Honestly, the way this book is written, it could’ve been the first book in the series—and I was honestly surprised it wasn’t! 
    David creates realistic characters—people dealing with real life problems. And what I found interesting about the characters in Autumn: the City was that I felt like I knew them to the extent that the other characters in the series knew them. We weren’t given much extra information about the characters, and, for me, it made me feel like I was actually there, in the city. I knew no more than anyone else did—I was no god above these characters. I was there, experiencing every tension.
    I can’t say much about the rest of the Autumn series, as I haven’t read it, but I can certainly tell you that this book is what I would consider a perfect zombie novel. You follow the change of the zombies, from their first death, through their (surprising!) evolution, until they (possibly) get hit by a car, or even just shamble off into the distance. You meet a variety of characters that are so real, you feel like you’ve actually met them once or twice in life. They’re dealing with actual problems and thinking actual thoughts. There is no Superman. These are normal people dealing with an abnormal situation, and I loved every minute of it.  This book provided a perfect snapshot into the lives of these people and, while it was short, I didn’t feel deprived of anything. Honestly, it’s a quick read—and a good one, too!
