DraxisReview: Memoirs of a Haunted Man by Robert Cordray

This book is actually a trilogy of short stories that are very expertly written.  In many ways these books are reminiscent of the X-Files, Warehouse 13, and TV shows where they dwell on aliens and scientific super gadgets.  This book series deals with zombies. The premise of the series is that Zombies have been around forever (read the book for some great historical examples) and for as long as there have been zombies there have been secret groups that are church or government funded that try to wipe them off the face of the earth while protecting the human race. This series follows the introduction of an ex-army officer into the vanguard group and follows him through training and several missions.  The style of this book is a lot like a film noir as it is a lot of mental narrative and action and very little of it is actual dialogue.   All in all, I found this to be a very funny and enjoyable book, one that I would recommend to all of my friends and any reader who enjoys a good zombie story.

  1. Oh after reading your review I can’t wait to read the book as soon as possible.. It looks really interesting for a person who enjoys reading about sci-fi, horror things.. Thanks for posting this !!

  2. Sounds very interesting. You can never go wrong with zombies. There’s always a lot you can do using them in stories, and having the church or government as the enemy.

  3. Ooh this book sounds exactly like something my husband would love. He’s a big fan of both the X-files and Warehouse 13, especially the latter. The plot sounds awesome, I’m definitely going to have to show him this and see if he’s interested. We’re always looking for new books to read.

  4. I haven’t read that many zombie books, but I’m pretty sure this is one novel I would enjoy. I love books that focus more on introspective dialogue and narration as opposed to dialogue. It is probably a remnant of the time I wasted so much time reading some of the most boring YA books in existence that were mostly dialogue and nothing else.

  5. I think I’ll have to pick up the book after reading this review. I haven’t read many zombie books either, but I think this would have to be one I start with. It’s such an interesting premise, the whole zombies having been round the whole time. Thanks for the recommendation!
