This is a book about zombies. Sounds fun, right? But check this out: what if a book about zombies... wasn't fun at all? That's The Rising.
Brian Keene's debut novel follows three people dealing with the demon zombie hellscape caused by an accident at a particle accelerator. Their paths converge in a sexual assault van in Pennsylvania in one of the top 5 most gratuitous horrifying things that happen in a book with a lot of contenders.
The Rising doesn't have the terror of other zombie stories but replaces it without gross-out humor a 15 year old boy might enjoy.
Thanks (but only kinda) to Carlos for sponsoring this horrible ruination of 8+ hours.
