Meet the Author

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

    It was alright for a short story

    I have to admit that I never read something like this, it takes the place of the zombie and how he feels (or lack of it) and acts and goes about his life...er existence. Although it is short (which is kind of too bad) it was a good read. The story ended quite suddenly though, and had it been longer it would probably have had a greater impact on me. It ended too quick. But like I said, it is a short story. The characters are interesting and I wish it gave more time to let us get to know them. Overall though I did enjoy the book and would definitely read it again.

    What?

    I read 130 pages thinking; hey, this is pretty good and then- the ending. Did he just get sick of writing? What's the point of developing charactors and plot direction if you can't finish

    Blah

    I wanted to like this book more. I really did. There are flashes here that tell me that this author is a person to keep ones eyes on - he may never reach the level of "Great Author" but he has the talent to reach a level of "Good author". But the problem is that these are just flashes.

    At the 2/3 point in this book things really begin to click... Then the book rushes to a hurried and rather silly end. The first 2/3 of the book contains glimpses of a talent mired in too much exposition. Really, the book should have been longer than it is... But as it is I can't recommend reading this to anyone other than those that want to check out an author that might be better next time.

    Good

    Well written book until the end. It was very creative. The end is really rushed though. I'd say it's worth reading as long as you know the end is left to be desired.

    Was intriging but..

    there is absolutely no ending so its a big dissappointment. It seems like the writer himself was really excited by this story and gave it everything he had, then suddenly he lost interest and slapped together an ending. Really gets your hopes up but then does not deliver at all.

    Fun and quick and a tiny bit scary

    PROs : Easy to read. Short (137 pages). Interesting lead character. Anything related to zombies is usually a good time for me. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - CONs : Hard to keep track of all the names. The ending felt a bit rushed. A few grammatical errors/typos. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - CONCLUSION : Hey! It's quick, it's free and it's a zombie book! What more can you ask for? I liked it. It reminded me a bit of that movie Creepshow from the 1980s. This story would have fit in perfectly in that movie.

    Good book for price

    Very good book for the fact that it is free. The ending is somewhat of a letdown and should be changed.

    What!?!

    Ok, I like how the story begins and this man who returns as a zombie has to re-discover who he was through recollections of others as he has no real memories of his former life. It builds into what could have become a really good story but then it seems as if the author got bored. A hastily, untidy ending that leaves a reader with so many questions; namely why on earth did I just waste my time on this? If only the author would re-write the end so it would make sense, it's got the potential to really become something so much more than just a cheesy zombie story.

    Okay

    Good because it was free, but if I had paid for it my rating would be okay. Ending was not expected, I like when I am surprised.

    Mediocre

    This story begins as a if it were written in a hurry. There is a lack of enviroment and character development. It suprisingly becomes interesting and engaging about 3/4 of the way through, but comes to a disappointing, nonsensical, and lazily written ending. The story has much potential, and I really enjoyed the concept.

    Wish it were longer!

    I really did enjoy this story. I was unsure of the direction it was going in the very beginning but it turned into a wonderful tale. I really liked the main characters and would have loved to learn more about them through a longer book. Unfortunately it ended too abruptly with a depressing event.

    Davey the lead protagonist is dead, but he does not seem to mind

    Davey the lead protagonist is dead, but he does not seem to mind, or at least he thinks he does not mind, he is not certain because he is having trouble thinking. At least he thinks he is having trouble thinking because he is arrrrrhgggghhhhh…………..


    As I began to read I assumed that the author was deliberately attempting to convey stiffness and incoherence, and I gave the result an A+.

    As a rough concept the idea of corpse waking, removing itself from the grave and then trying to live life as best as it could, should have been handled so much better by a competent author who did not obviously lose interest during his own creation.

    Mr Lichtenberg has had plenty of practice having published over 50 books so far. You may consider me unkind to assume that the author had noticed that zombies are currently the flavour of this half decade and decided to jump on that bandwagon, because frankly that is how it feels.

    Davey has to be the least ‘zombiest’ zombie I have ever come across in print. Here is a zombie you could take home to meet your mother without fear that he might want to give her a nibble. Davey is the perfect casual dinner party guest, able to converse with ease, does not talk about sex or taxes and does not hog the pizza. He is also the perfect lodger whose only downside is an offensive body odour. (He is a rotting corpse afterall). I will say that the character of Ray, Davey’s uncle was half way decent. I would also hazard a guess that even a long serving pathologist would not react in the way Ray did after discovering his nephew was a corpse.

    Characterisation could have been better, character chatter was poorly done, proof reading is highly recommended for all published books, the ending was just completely random, the mythology was not given a history, also some semblance of a plot was badly needed.

    If I had not known anything about the author prior to reading I would have assumed that this book was written as a high school project by a c grade average student.

    Mr Lichtenberg describes this book as a thriller, it is not a thriller, nothing thrilling actually happened.

    This story could have been so much more, the premise held so much promise, but ultimately it failed to deliver, this reader was left wondering what was the point exactly?

    Pretty good

    It was creative and it made you think, but it was rushed at the end. Could use more detail and should have told why they wanted him dead

    Should I be excited?

    Great. I'm reading the reviews and am disapointed with what I hear about the ending, sounds like the first book I wrote, but I will still read it and see.
