Book Review: Zom-B - The Zom-B Series

When news reports start appearing of a zombie outbreak in Ireland, B's racist father thinks it's a joke-- but even if it isn't, he figures, it's ok to lose a few Irish.

B doesn't fully buy into Dad's racism, but figures it's easier to go along with it than to risk the fights and abuse that will surely follow sticking up for Muslims, blacks, or immigrants. And when dodging his fists doesn't work, B doesn't hesitate to take the piss out of kids at school with a few slaps or cruel remarks.

That is, until zombies attack the school. B is forced on a mad dash through the serpentine corridors of high school, making allegiances with anyone with enough gall to fight off their pursuers.
My Review
This book is written by Darren Shaun also known as one of the "Bestselling Author of Horror". It is 175 pages long, too.
A news report came in about a town close to Ireland where zombies have attacked people. A lot of the teens in Ireland thought it was a hoax, but later come to find out that it was very true. During a game of soccer in the gym people started running in through the doors. They were getting eaten by the zombies. B, his friends, and others started running toward the exit, only to find out that it was blocked. They lost a lot of people on the way and sacrificed others. What will they learn and how will they survive? Who will live, who will die, and who will be feasting on the others??
I thought the book was very graphic and gory. It was definitely horror. I hated how graphic it was. I would have liked the book more if it was a little less graphic. What's worse is I told myself that I wasn't going to read any more of the series, but at the end of the book is a major cliff-hanger that will make it to where you don't have any choice but to read the second book. Also, it was very confusing at points. I did like how the cussing was sort of lesser, because they used and Irish accent. So instead of saying the "A word" they said arse. I would have gave it a better rating if there was less gore, though.
