Review: The Unwashed Dead
The Unwashed Dead by Ian Woodhead
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Horror (zombies) Reading Level: Adult
Disclosure: I received a free eBook of this, the first in the Zombie Armageddon series by Ian Woodhead, free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Synopsis: In a rundown council estate in the North of England strange things are happening. The dead suddenly are not quite as dead as they should be......
A mysterious government body has decided to use the estate as an experiment. Things are out of control & now they need to eradicate all knowledge & existence of the estate.
But what happens when a small group of survivors band together? Will they survive the apocalypse & triumph over the undead?
My Thoughts: Zombies are really not my thing, but I have heard good things about Ian Woodhead’s fiction, so agreed to read the first two books in his Zombie Armageddon series, The Unwashed Dead and Walking with Zombies. The third book is Infected Bodies. All books are available in the normal places you get ebooks.
This was a fast-paced, exciting book. It consisted mostly of little character vignettes, showing what people were doing when they started to turn into zombies, how those who didn’t turn reacted, and how people went about trying to survive. Add in secret government experiments and mysterious soldiers, and you have a story that is hard to put down. Good stuff for the horror and zombie fan.
