REVIEW: Ravage by Iain Rob Wright

RavageRating: 3 out of 5 stars, Genre: Apocalyptic Fiction/ Zombies, Pages: 435, Level: Easy

Book Description:

FIRST PEOPLE GOT SICK. THEN THEY GOT VERY SICK..
Nick Adams is just a normal guy. He loves his family, appreciates his home, and covets his car. But he absolutely hates his job. Which is what makes it so difficult that not a single customer has come by his store today. It seems as though there’s a bug going around, something that has come out of nowhere and is keeping people at home. Still, it’s probably nothing to worry about. People get sick all the time.

And besides, things are finally starting to look up. Nick’s first customer of the day has just stumbled through the door…

HIS DAY IS ABOUT TO GET WORSE..
It won’t be long before Nick’s entire life is turned upside down, sending him on a frantic journey through a ravaged world that will ultimately lead him 500 feet upwards to a hilltop amusement park. Is it the last safe place on Earth, or are the monsters at the top of the hill even worse than the ones below?

WELCOME TO RIPLEY HEIGHTS. WHERE THE FUN NEVER STARTS.

Ravage was okay overall. I had a hard time getting into it but the second half was good. I loved the way it ended and I like the fact that no one is safe.

Readers will find two different types of monsters in Ravage- infected and undead. So you have the sprinting zombies, who are really infected individuals who haven’t died yet (think 28 Days Later), and you have the true zombies, reanimated corpses. Don’t worry, the difference between the two is explained.

While this is a zombie novel, most of it is really about surviving and the relationships between survivors. It’s a decent read. The editing is good- not a lot of typos or grammatical errors that I noticed. Ravage is probably more suited for those who read or collect a lot of zombie books.
