I have loved just about every one of the Resident Evil novels, also being a huge fan of the games. I finally got around to reading this one and many had told me it was pretty good. No thank you.

I found it to be deathly boring and slow paced. Many of the characters are brand new, minus the main four of RE1. While Rebecca is portrayed as a main character in this, I felt like she took a back seat to the "original" characters after about halfway. The plot was dull and felt uneventful. I found myself almost dreading any time I had to read it. After about 3/4 of the way through, I was skimming through the pages to finish it faster.

I simply did not like this one. Perhaps you will. I found it to be very dull. If you have an interest in reading these novels, do NOT start with this one.

    Are we talking about the same book?

    This book has got to be the worst one in the series. I think S. D. Perry ran out of steam with this one or maybe she was getting bored with the characters. Either way, the writing was boring, the description of the monsters was ridiculous, and Alfred was absolutely laughable. The story was just too outrageous to even pass as a horror book.

    The suspense is gone

    This book was horrible. I think that the zombies having machine guns took away the suspense of the first novel and the whole aspect of Resident Evil.
