Zombie, Illinois: A Novel by Scott Kenemore

The sequel to the bestselling Zombie, Ohio, this explosive supernatural thriller from Scott Kenemore tells the story of three Chicagoans who have been thrown together by a bizarre, interconnected series of events during the first twenty-four hours of a zombie outbreak in the Midwest's largest city. A partnership is crafted between a pastor from Chicago's rough South Side, an intrepid newspaper reporter, and a young female musician, all of whom are fighting for survival as they struggle to protect themselves and their communities in a city overrun with the walking dead. Between the barricaded neighborhoods and violent zombie hunters, the trio encounters many mysterious occurrences that leave them shaken and disturbed. When the mayor of Chicago is eaten by zombies on live television, and a group of shady aldermen attempt to seize power in the vacuum, these unlikely friends realize that they have stumbled upon a conspiracy to overthrow the city . . . and that they alone may be qualified to combine their talents to stop it.

Zombie, Illinois will delight devoted zombie fans and put readers in mind of some of the best recent works of supernatural horror. You will be left shocked, horrified, and craving brains! This novel will grab you from the first page and not let go until the riveting finale.

We don't want no zombies nobody sent! Only in Chicago would the zombie apocalypse be just another excuse for political corruption and chicaniery. Mr. Kenemore has captured the character of Chicago in a most uncanny way. Both zombie fans and native Chicagoans will laugh out loud, as thinly vailed true life local characters alternate between perpetrating skulduggery and becoming zombie lunches. Scarry and funny, this book packs more of a punch then more serious social criticisms. It's fiction of course. The zombie apocalypse could never occur in Chicago as the zombies wouldn't be safe there.

Those of us in the Chicago-land area will recognize the good and bad aspects of our beloved city in this book. I'm not a major fan of the zombie genre, but this book wasn't only guts and gore. The political intrigue with the added flavor of corruption and greed that can only come from Chicago, was the icing on the cake.

Not going to lie, it could have been better... But it was okay. Overall the writing was decent and the changing first person story line perspective sort of helped to keep it more interesting and well paced.  However, the characters were a little too tied together in this story. The amazing and uneventful coincidences (which were abundant) didn't really help with the entertainment value. I would have probably enjoyed better zombie explanations and more suspenseful  encounters (with the living and undead). And even though there was action and close calls, somehow it always seemed like everything  was going to be a-okay in the end.  As far as zombie novels go, this one is pretty decent though. If you are into a quick, moderately entertaining read, then I wouldn't  totally disregard this one.

Crap story about contrived drama that is beyond believable. A few zombies sprinkled in to sell it as a hot topic. Buyer beware.
