The book with no name

20120202-104718.jpg

On the face of it, this would seem to be an ordinary horror thriller, but this book defies categorisation. The sheer number of dead people (being killed and as undead characters) provides an exhilarating milieu. All this and vampires as well. Characters drift in and out (out mostly by violent death). The book therefore does not dwell on deep character development, but does provide a diverting read along the lines of fantasy and absurdist fiction. There are some neat cross-textual references especially in regard of the terminator movies and more besides. A three star read.
