Brilliant First UK Review of New Book

Brilliant First UK Review of New Book May 21, 2016

Thanks to John Kingston for so favourably reviewing my new fiction book, Survival of the Fittest: Metamorphosis. Happy days.

5.0 out of 5 starsBrilliant new take on the Zombie theme, 19 May 2016

Johno Pearce is a philosopher, who has written many books and lectures on philosophical, sceptical themes. As far as I know this is his first work of fiction. So why choose zombies?
I guess because it enables him to explore how ordinary people react to extraordinary circumstances, and thus to better explore their humanity. He takes a large variety of unrelated people, from a wide variety of backgrounds and lets us get to know them as people in a normal context before in each case seeing how they deal with what for some is a gradual unfolding of the crisis, for others, who for one reason or another have been insulated from its early stages, is a more sudden overturning of their worlds.
It is brilliantly done and leaves the reader looking forward to what I hope will be not too long a wait for the next volume in what could be a classic saga. Thoroughly recommended.
