    4.5 stars The balance of our world has been changed forever Mankind is being cleansed from the face of the planet Purification has begun I read this book right after the second one and enjoyed this one a lotThis time Michael and Emma were in it from the get go and the book was all about getting to the place that could give them all a future.There arecharacters introduced who have some handy skills and knowledge but we still have Michael, Emma, Cooper, Donna, Armitage, and Croft 4.5 stars The balance of our world has been changed forever Mankind is being cleansed from the face of the planet Purification has begun I read this book right after the second one and enjoyed this one a lotThis time Michael and Emma were in it from the get go and the book was all about getting to the place that could give them all a future.There arecharacters introduced who have some handy skills and knowledge but we still have Michael, Emma, Cooper, Donna, Armitage, and Croft We learn from the new characters what caused this all to happen in the first place and the bodies keep changing They areaggressive and are an increasing threat on the security of the survivors There aresituations in this book compared to the others where the bodies are coming after the surviors, so there was a bitheart pounding scenarios that made for a great read We are really vested in several of these characters now and are rooting for them throughout this book There are some choke up moments in this one as well.Once again, Moody stays true to how the events would play out if this were to really happen It is very believable and realistic That is what sets this series by Moody apart from other zombie books and makes thesescary It is like we are getting a glimpse of what is going to happen to is on the future and it ain t pretty I thought Moody came up with the perfect ending to this third book as well He left a lot of questions and makes you wonder and think about it even after you have finished reading it.Highly recommend this series to anyone who likes zombie books or books about human nature in general

    Autumn Purification is the third book of David Moody s four part post apocalyptic zombie saga Following on directly from where Autumn The City left off, the reader should already be aware of all the main characters Bursting with action from the start, the survivors are thrown once again into the dangerous rotting world of the undead, mixing horrific tension with the dark mental anguish that the survivors feel daily.Influenced heavily but Romero s zombie films, the book takes on many of t Autumn Purification is the third book of David Moody s four part post apocalyptic zombie saga Following on directly from where Autumn The City left off, the reader should already be aware of all the main characters Bursting with action from the start, the survivors are thrown once again into the dangerous rotting world of the undead, mixing horrific tension with the dark mental anguish that the survivors feel daily.Influenced heavily but Romero s zombie films, the book takes on many of the ideas and situations tackled in his Dead series We meet another set of survivors who have access to a helicopter and a plane And we finally see the survivors pulling together well, not all of them to try and make a future for themselves.Perhaps the best written of the Autumn books, Purification uses many styles and techniques to encapsulate the harrowing experiences that the survivors go through The book often jumps to an almost diary like first person view point for a chapter, to then go back to the standard third person style The author spends a large amount of the time submerging the reader into the emotions and mental stress of each character producing some beautiful characterization that draws you into this almost believable scenario.The zombies take on new and interesting changes, which are detailed throughout the book It s almost as if they are evolving, which brings a nice twist on the classic zombie genre The book ends in a hopeful, yet still with a dark and slightly negative tone, that concludes the books nicely The final book of the series is Autumn The Human Condition , that is a companion book which brings to an end the Autumn saga Autumn Purification is a truly superb novel that will appeal and indeed please every good fan of the zombie genre Original, dark, fast paced and in depth the book is a fantastic piece of horror fiction.The novel is released through David Moody s own publishing company Infected Books and runs for a total of 287 pages

    Having read David Moody s original book Autumn online for free a bunch of years back and gotten The City a few months back with a Border s coupon, I knew I had to pre order Purification when it popped up as a suggestion for me onback in March Mr Moody s portrayal of survivors among a billion dead makes for an astounding read There are always those people you want to shake, or hug, or just leave alone While reading the books, I couldn t find a single character I could shrug off and no Having read David Moody s original book Autumn online for free a bunch of years back and gotten The City a few months back with a Border s coupon, I knew I had to pre order Purification when it popped up as a suggestion for me onback in March Mr Moody s portrayal of survivors among a billion dead makes for an astounding read There are always those people you want to shake, or hug, or just leave alone While reading the books, I couldn t find a single character I could shrug off and not care whether they lived or died Of course, there were some I just hoped would die, but I wasn t apathetic about it.His descriptions of the rancid population made reading the book by lantern light during a hurricane evenfun I had to close the curtains to makes sure the wandering dead couldn t see the light flickering in the window No, I m not kidding It was creepy

    I am a big fan of the Hater series by Moody and picked up the Autumn series thinking it would be just as good I should, perhaps, reconsider how often I go around thinking I managed to finished Autumn, Autumn Disintegration and Autumn Purification and am giving them all the same reviews here just so that I might save another bibliophile the same fate The Autumn series is slow, two dimensional, filled with gawd awful dialogue and generally a chore to read The fact that I read the full three I am a big fan of the Hater series by Moody and picked up the Autumn series thinking it would be just as good I should, perhaps, reconsider how often I go around thinking I managed to finished Autumn, Autumn Disintegration and Autumn Purification and am giving them all the same reviews here just so that I might save another bibliophile the same fate The Autumn series is slow, two dimensional, filled with gawd awful dialogue and generally a chore to read The fact that I read the full three books is a testament to my own stubbornness and in no way should be seen as an indication that anyone else should read all three I ve given each title two stars because it is, in fact, an interesting premise But nothing

    Great book in the series Very, very creepy the silence, the darkness, the hatred of the undead Moody s Autumn series has a very different feel from the typical zombie book quite obviously, there s no munching on body parts But it s the silent creep factor that gets to you so much scarier than most things I ve read in a long, long while.Awesome series

    I didn t realize that this book was 3 to a series when I found it in a used book bargain bin but I remember reading the first two books of this author s Hater series and liking them not sure why I didn t finish off the series, will have to go back This book featuring survivors going from underground military base to tiny island isn t really a standalone and suffers greatly There s no real depth to any of the characters and when some of them inevitably get torn apart by zombies, you don t g I didn t realize that this book was 3 to a series when I found it in a used book bargain bin but I remember reading the first two books of this author s Hater series and liking them not sure why I didn t finish off the series, will have to go back This book featuring survivors going from underground military base to tiny island isn t really a standalone and suffers greatly There s no real depth to any of the characters and when some of them inevitably get torn apart by zombies, you don t get why some grieve harder than others since there s almost no flashback or reference to what happened in the previous books I also found the main two characters and their romance deeply annoying and grosser than the zombies The zombies really are the best part of the book which something of a twist in how it s usually portrayed One day, 99% of the populace fall down dead, and a few days later get back up with a hunger for brains it s airborne, so deep military installations or people lucky enough to be in a hazmat suit but how will they ever eat or drink and a tiny percentage who are naturally immune are the only ones left I guess I ll have to read the first two to get any insight to the tragedy the source is hinted at in this book and found all the main people evenannoying since they didn t care or didn t seem overly interested in wtf happened The people also deeply fail Zombie 101 to where I stopped caring view spoiler they saw the soldier s dead body inside the fences why didn t they put a bullet in her brain Even if not immediate threat since they take a few hours day to come back, the fact she helped pull down the fence is what led to most of them dying hide spoiler It s a fast and light read so not much of a time investment, but very weak on its own, which is somewhat my bad for hopping in midway

    In my opinion, the third book in the Autumn series is the weakest of the first 3 books I ve only read the first 3 so far But with that being said, it s still a fantastic read My main issue with this book, is I feel like the pacing wasn t nearly as good as it was in the first two books Autumn The City However, I think this book has some of the strongest character moments in the series so far, too So I I have a love hate relationship with Purification It gives my favorite character a In my opinion, the third book in the Autumn series is the weakest of the first 3 books I ve only read the first 3 so far But with that being said, it s still a fantastic read My main issue with this book, is I feel like the pacing wasn t nearly as good as it was in the first two books Autumn The City However, I think this book has some of the strongest character moments in the series so far, too So I I have a love hate relationship with Purification It gives my favorite character a lot of time to shine, which I appreciated, but a lot of the other characters set up in The City are given harsh back seats Character development definitely isn t David Moody s strong suit, and the little that s there doesn t feel like enough.However, the setting, tone and atmosphere this book gives are enough to get me to read on The rest of the Autumn series is definitely in my To Be Read list And I know for a fact David Moody is an incredibly strong author Look to Hater for proof on that These Autumn books are some of his earliest written published works, so it makes sense they wouldn t be as strong as his later novels But I m excited to finish the series

    The characters in the first book ran and hid from zombies They met a somecharacters in the second book who were running and hiding, and together they ran and hid Purification mis labelled the last in the trilogy offers little in the way of conclusion either In fact the content is still composed of running and hiding, rinse and repeat There is little in the way of character development from the survivors, a clear division exists between runners and fodder That all said, Purification The characters in the first book ran and hid from zombies They met a somecharacters in the second book who were running and hiding, and together they ran and hid Purification mis labelled the last in the trilogy offers little in the way of conclusion either In fact the content is still composed of running and hiding, rinse and repeat There is little in the way of character development from the survivors, a clear division exists between runners and fodder That all said, Purification doesn t set out to be different, it s niche in the genre is to fulfil a bleak zombie infested Britain and it does just that Straight forward and unsurprising Purification is an easy time filler and stays true to the two previous entries
