    more from this reviewer

    If you love the movies - You'll love these more.

    I've read all three of the book series and I'm inexorably enamored by the movies. The books offer more background information and more depth that will increase both your reading and movie watching experience! After you read this novel, don't forget to download Apocalypse and Extinction. They just keep getting better!

    I liked it.

    Some people said it was not a good book, I beg to differ. I can't keep track of the books I have read let alone zombie books. I have always liked Keith R. A. DeCandido's books at least the ones that are based on my fave tv shows and movies. And thats just it they are BASED on them not the show or movie exactly. What fun would it be to read a book and then watch the movie and have them be the same word for word scene for scene? It would suck. And lets not forget these book are how the wonderful people who take the time to write them so we the people who either don't have the time or the imagination to write a good story let alone a great book are not bored and have something to do besides sit around and pick our collective noses. I for one thank these people. And as for this book? It was great.

    Sub-par

    If you are looking for a book that will do a good job painting images of characters, surroundinds, etc...this book is not for you. This book is an insanely easy read that is comparable to early teen books (although the excessive amount of foul language make it inappropriate for younger readers). If you are a huge Resident Evil fan then just be aware this book does not do the overall storyline justice. It almost seems as though the author threw the book together in a week and didnt even attempt to make it intellectually stimulating at all. I am highly disappointed.

    Even more disappointing then Genesis

    Again the character descriptions were a bit off, and so were the character attitudes. LJ didn't have to use the 'f' word every other word, and niether did Jill they're ten times as worse than Raine in Genesis. The book didn't have to match the script from the movie exactly, but it should have atleast gave you a right feel for the characters that the movie did. It seriously pained me to read this book I kept having to put it down because it was so horribly done. It might just be me, but it feels like he didn't even try with this book like he didn't even care about the Resident Evil plot at all.

    Apocalypse A New Begining

    Picking up where the first novel, 'Resident Evil: Genesis' ends 'Apocalypse' gets off to a quick start and keeps a break neck pace throughout the entire novel. Writing is effective and descriptive as it was in the first novel, providing plenty of character insights and background information that will make viewing the film it is based on that much more enjoyable. An excellently written movie tie-in.
