Seth's review of Zombie Day Care by Craig Halloran
"He had dozed off, feeling safe and exhausted, in the middle of nowhere. He laid his head back, just for a second, listening to the madness on the satellite radio. America has fallen! Russia has fallen! The Middle East has fallen! He fell asleep.
His eyes snapped open. A shuffle of dirt caught his ear. He wiped the drool from his mouth. The rear view mirror showed nothing. His heart raced. Something was out there. A flicker of movement caught his eye in the side view mirror. He jerked out of the way just as a hand clutched for his neck. He scrambled through the passenger side door and rolled outside."
The Facility is what the Washington D.C. officials call it. It is a day care for zombie children, tucked deep in the east coast hills. Is there a cure for the zombies? The children of the undead give them the best hope. There are those who think the zombie threat is harmless - and those that don't. The World Humanitarian Society wants to protect the zombies -or do they? Friends, family and colleagues are set at odds, dealing with the deadly dilemma. What about the zombies? What rights do they have in all of this? Or are they just a means to another diabolical end?
In this take on the zombie apocalypse genre, the zombies didn’t succeed in taking over the world. It seems however, that they put a fairly large dent in the human population. So much that security forces are apparently barebones operations. Enter in the politicians. They had loved ones who got infected and needed care. Young loved ones. So, what does one do with a bunch of zombified children? Well, you set up a daycare for them. That’s pretty much the premise of this book. There’s a disgruntled person who got the security position because of who he knows. Then, you have the hard workers who are just trying to make a living. The situation deteriorates from there. Sleazeball wants the hard working woman, woman wants nothing to do with him. Sleazeball releases zombie children and mostly everyone dies. Not the worst of books to read but by far not the best book I have ever read in the genre.
Seth gives Zombie Day Care: 2/5.
