Review: Orpheus by Dan DeWitt

OrpheusOrpheus by Dan DeWitt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Zombie lovers don’t miss out on this one. This book has lots of zombie action, but the main focus is on the characters. Their struggle to survive and reunite with their loved ones makes this a much more interesting read than your average zombie thriller.

Book Description
“Cameron Holt is fortunate enough to survive the initial outbreak that turns his New England island community into a hive of the undead. So is his son, Ethan. Now, the only thing keeping Holt going is the determination to rescue his son from the undead…or remove him permanently from their ranks. Unfortunately, zombies aren’t the only thing getting in his way.”

Usually I find it hard to rate a short story collection because the quality of the stories varies so much. This was an easy, solid 4 star. There are couple I’d rate a 3, a few I’d rate a 5, and the rest are 4 star. These are also “real” short stories at lengths of 1,500 to 4,000 words. I’ve been running into a lot of “short stories” lately that turned out to be novella length so this collection was very refreshing.

I’m a big monster fan so zombies are right up my alley. If you’re not a zombie fan, this book is not for you. If you are a fan, this collection is definitely worth the read.
