Stewart Sternberg Wants Your Brains
There have been a number of zombie books and movies coming out in the last couple of years. It takes quite a lot to stand out in that crowd but I found that "The Ravening" by Stewart Sternberg managed to do just that. There's a fair amount of the usual zombie kind of action and gore, but there are also some really fine characters that work their way into your consciousness and stay there. The book definitely involves an ensemble cast and I very much liked the heroes, who seemed fully human but not so nuanced that you couldn't decide whether you wanted to root for them or not. I believe this is Sternberg's first novel, although I've read some fine short stories from him. It feels like he hit the ground running with this work though and I'll certainly be interested in reading more from him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
