Last Man Standing by Keith Taylor
Disclaimer: I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.
Summary: Paul McQueen is a global celebrity. The only man to survive the zombie outbreak of Bangkok, he's been making the rounds of the morning talk shows and newscasts.
Three months later he's a depressed, suicidal alcoholic. His wife and friends are dead, and it's time to tell the real story about what happened in the city. Why has he been lying all these months? What does the military junta have to hide? What could possibly be worse than the terror of the undead?
Review: A creepy tale of the true beginning of the zombie apocalypse.
This is a short story so it’s quick to read, but it certainly packs a punch. The zombies are really very horrible. They are much more dangerous than the standard horror zombie. I am sure Bangkok is already an incredibly crowded city, but it was even worse during a festival. Being caught in the crowd during a zombie outbreak is the worst place to be. I am amazed that Paul McQueen managed to survive although he does lose everything. I really felt for Paul. I can’t imagine going through what he did and not winding up at least a little messed up.
Recommendation: I would recommend this to fans of zombie stories.
