Product Description

Product Description

A collection of stunning zombie/ survival horror stories from David Moody, author of the AUTUMN and HATER novels (optioned for film by Guillermo del Toro).

Keith’s in his early twenties. No girlfriend, no hobbies, no future. He spends his days working in an office and his evenings, weekends and just about all his free time looking after his alcoholic dad.

And then the zombie apocalypse changes everything.

Suddenly Keith’s free. For the first time in a long time, he’s got nothing to worry about (apart from several hundred thousand reanimated corpses heading his way).

But then he meets Anna, and everything changes again. Cocky, cool, confident... she’s everything Keith isn’t. Holed-up together in an isolated bungalow, besieged by the living dead, will they survive, or will they tear each other apart before the dead get anywhere near?

A brand new apocalyptic novella from David Moody, best-selling author of AUTUMN, HATER and THE COST OF LIVING.

Also includes four additional zombie short stories.

“Moody has the power to make the most mundane and ordinary characters interesting and believable, and is reminiscent of Stephen King at his finest.” —Shadowlocked

“A truly superb post-apocalyptic story.” —DLS Reviews on THE COST OF LIVING

"A head spinning thrill ride... HATER will haunt you long after you read the last page." —Guillermo del Toro

"Moody is as imaginative as Barker, as compulsory as King, and as addictive as Palahniuk" – Scream the Horror Magazine

THE COST OF LIVING and ISOLATION are available in a combined paperback edition from Infected Books entitled: LAST OF THE LIVING

The writing wasn't bad and neither were the stories, if you have a couple hours to kill and nothing better this read, go for it. Otherwise, most of the stories were lacking in some way that I can't quite put my finger on. Like I said, more average zombie stories, not bad, but not particularly good either.

HASH(0x982999b4) out of 5 stars Another Brilliant Book! Aug. 20 2014
By Greg at 2 Book Lovers Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Isolation is the story of Keith, a young man who has given up on life...until everyone else's life ends and he is left behind alone. The apocalypse in Isolation goes unexplained, and why not...let's face it, if and when it happens it won't matter, no one will be able to do a damn thing about it.

As always, David Moody has left me shivering in a corner, thinking to myself, "Do we have a chance?"

The story revolves around two characters, Keith and Anna. These characters are the strength of Moody's writing. He pulls you in with relatable characters, we all know a "Keith" and an "Anna"; hell we may have even felt like a "Keith" or "Anna" at one point in time or another. We feel for them and we care. They do not deserve this fate.

Isolation is accompanied by four short stories. Each one taking a slightly different approach to the zombie apocalypse. While I am not usually a huge fan of the short story (I like to spend more time with my new friends), each of these pulled me in quickly and there was nothing lacking.

I especially liked Who We Used To Be. In it Moody addresses something that never even crossed my mind. While reading it, I thought to myself, "Those poor buggers are going through hell!"

If you are looking for an HEA, I think Jane Austin has one of those and you're welcome to it. But if you want to read about the end of the world and you want to feel alone, hopeless and isolated, then read Isolation!

HASH(0x98299a08) out of 5 stars like all the others in the collection Aug. 22 2014
By Wayne Simmons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
ISOLATION is a brand new novella by bestselling genre author, David Moody. Complete with four short stories, it's been billed as Moody's final word on zombie horror.

The lead story is an action-packed survival horror story following Keith and Anna, two young survivors brought together after a sudden and deadly virus infects practically everyone around them, turning them into bloodthirsty monsters. Although reminiscent of Moody's AUTUMN series (the zombies don't appear to eat flesh, for one thing), this story, like all the others in the collection, is not directly linked to previous releases.

Originally written as a screenplay, ISOLATION moves along at a cracking pace. It's perhaps the pulpiest release by Moody to date; a gory thrillfest from start to finish. Of course, fans of Moody's unique approach to characterisation will not be disappointed; Keith and Anna's back stories are expertly weaved into the novella making us, as readers, fully invested in their plight to survive. Fans of AUTUMN and HATER will lap this up.

ISOLATION does exactly what it needs to, going out with a bang rather than a whisper. And although it might be his last word on zombie horror, you get the feeling that gritty end-of-the-world survival horror will be a staple of Moody's for some time to come.

HASH(0x98299e40) out of 5 stars Another Great Book From Mr. Moody! Isolation plus a bonus of 4 short stories! Aug. 27 2014
By C. Brunner - Published on Amazon.com

There is a reason why I keep coming back and buying every single book written by David Moody. I love the ride. Each book is a bumpy ride with a finish that makes me take a minute. This book consists of short stories (I believe four short stories plus Isolation which is longer)
First of all, he has this amazing ability.... He gets me invested in characters. Many of the characters are really flawed people. They go through some pretty horrifying stuff. There are few writers that can get me either really rooting for characters or really disliking the characters quite like this author. The characters act so realistically. Also, he surprises me. I can usually read where the story is going when I am reading a book. So many are pretty predictable to a person who reads almost everyday. But this book surprised me. Characters change and develop. You see hints of who they are underneath. They behave in ways that I have seen many times with people. Subtle manipulations by people....
My last point has to do with an extreme pet peeve of mine. The ending. Most endings are unrealistic or there might be no resolution at all. You might be left completely hanging. Mr. Moody has the most thought provoking endings. After the first story in this collection of stories, I had to take a minute and think about it. Why did it happen that way? I am mostly talking about the first story, but I can think of many of his books that had incredible thought provoking endings. Because even if he is writing a three book or six book series, he still wraps up the basic scenario of each book. In a way that actually makes sense-not just as an excuse to end the book conveniently.
