Fiend AUTHOR Peter StensA stinking basement apartment and a filthy mattress and an endless grind of buying and selling and using He’s lied and cheated and stolen and broken his parents’ hearts a thousand times And he threw away his only shot at sobriety a long time ago when he chose the embrace of the drug over the woman he still loves    And if your life’s already shattered beyond any normal hopes of redemptionwell maybe the end of the world is an opportunity Maybe it’s a last chance for Chase So I am DNFing this at 20% I really should have DNF'd when Chase described his breath as smelling like abortion Then I should have done it when he described a zombie girl sitting on the couch as looking like a used tampon But I didn't What did me in in the end was the stream of consciousness writing and lack of any form of punctuation There are no uotations marks so I would find myself finishing a sentence and thinking oh someone was saying that and having to re read it This really kept me from getting into the story at all Just can't do it I'm sad too because I had high hopes for this being a Reuiem For A Dream meets the zombie apocalypse type story Oh well

There’s than one kind of monster   When Chase Daniels first sees the little girl in umbrella socks tearing open the Rottweiler he's not too concerned As a longtime meth addict he’s no stranger to horrifying drug fueled hallucinations     But as he and his fellow junkies soon discover the little girl is no illusion The end of the world really has arrived    The funny thing is Chase’s life was over long before the apocalypse got here his existence already reduced to This may be the only book I've read that never bored me I read it in a few days only ever stopping grudgingly because I had other obligations I wasn't a huge fan of the descriptive detail about sex but every other piece of this novel was incredibly entertaining I'm not sure he could have told this story without those details so that's just fair warning to those who won't read books with sexFIEND hooked me in spite of not being enthused to read about meth addicts or another zombie book when so many have not been scary or interesting This was scary philosophical survival based entertaining full of conflict and most importantly engaged me in the characters and their efforts to find happiness The ending blew me away and was perfect The idea of making meth addicts use meth to survive the zombie apocalypse adding a love story about two addicts who are on opposite sides of wanting to use and top uality writing at every other level made this my favorite book of the year and favorite zombie book everCheck out my interview with Peter for Adventures in SciFi Publishing
