The EF76 Strain, by Howard Dunkley:
‘A dark and invigorating short read.’
Good morning fellow bookworms. 🙂
Today, I’d like to share my review of The EF76 Strain, by Howard Dunkley.
I’ve always been a fan of zombie-related films and novels, so let’s dive in.
The EF76 Strain chronicles the life of residents of a small town after a strange virus begins to infect the human population. More specifically, the story follows Steven Wright as he traverses through the zombie hordes in his hometown.
From a pill that was created to help reduce hunger, (to help conserve food due to a food shortage) we see severe reactions, which transform neighbours and loved ones into vicious, bloodthirsty cannibals.
This classic zombie apocalypse style tale was not only stimulating, but thought provoking.
It felt a lot more realistic, as though I could one day find myself in a similar situation, unlike with most zombie tales I have read. Its fast pace kept me hooked, with a beginning loaded with tension.
Overall, a gripping tale that made my heart pound.
Rated a solid 4 stars.
Recommended to lovers of sci-fi, and zombie novels.
I hope you enjoyed my review and wish you all an amazing day.
