Oasis by Joan De La Haye

Sometimes all the clever and insightful books in the world are not enough. Some days the only thing that will prevent that itch at the back of my skull is a simple horror story. This probably goes back to my love of tacky B-movies as a teenager. This fits that mould exactly. A cheaply shot and easy to follow zombie apocalypse story. There are times where that style is exactly what I need. Last week was one of those times. I got to turn off my brain and sink in to a nice relaxing zombie blood bath.

I like fast moving zombies. Somehow they seem more rabid than the slow shuffling kind. Running away get a lot more difficult. Making a stand becomes almost the only option, and we know how that usually turns out. I enjoyed the realism reflected in the snippets of bunker life and although it would have spoiled the pacing of the story I could quite happily have read more about that part of the back story.

This story seems too short to me. I wanted more. A lot more. It was a fun story with plenty of bloodshed and a simplistic yet interesting storyline. If you are looking for a distraction from the serious stuff of life you could do a lot worse than buying this book.

If you enjoy this book I can highly recommend Requiem in E Sharp by the same author.
