The EF76 Strain (Zombie Sci-Fi Review)

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.

Born in 1993, British writer Daccari Buchelli spends his time focusing on his favourite genre, Fantasy. Having developed an early love of literature, he became determined to create his own magical wonderlands for fellow readers to explore. He spent his teenage years working on several Fantasy novellas, which he has yet to release to the general public.

He has since released the first book in a new Fantasy series, which revolves around young royals and the elemental magic that they possess. As an active member of the LGBT+ community, Mr Buchelli hopes to help reduce intolerance and bullying by promoting acceptance and understanding of those different to ourselves.
