TAKE THE BOOK JURASSIC PARK - REMOVE THE DINOSAURS - REPLACE THEM WITH ZOMBIES
Ben Cutler just wants an honest way to make a lot of money! Unemployed and on the short end of the employment stick, he knows his chances of getting a traditional job is slim to never. Ever resourceful and always a forward thinker, Ben comes up with a brilliant idea—Zombie Park! Create a park with zombies, sell tickets and people will come by the hundreds. To his surprise, one of the richest men in the world backs his project and makes Ben an instant millionaire!
Scientists Nicholas and Kathy Hollman have been commissioned by General Wilbur Poe to create “smart zombies” to be used on the battlefield instead of live soldiers. With glory in his eyes, Nicholas is determined to not only create the formula, but cut his wife out of the equation and take all the credit himself. Unfortunately for Nicholas, Kathy is the brain behind everything they do.
Robert Forenstein has found the perfect cover for the smart zombie project in Ben Cutler’s Zombie Park. He and General Poe will make America the first country to use zombies as weapons of mass destruction and make billions in the process! As with all plans, everyone has their own agenda and the Zombie Park project is no different. The plan rapidly unravels as Nicholas botches the experiments and is inadvertently creating an army of out of control zombies. With a trail of bodies in their wake, neither the Hollmans nor Forenstein realize the true motives behind General Poe’s zombie army…and it ain’t to save the world!
I don't like leaving negative reviews, I really don't. The only reason that I do is because I'd feel dishonest if I only give my good opinion and pretend I love everything. Unfortunately, this is one of those hard reviews to write.
It just. . . I couldn't make myself like it. The writing felt very amateurish, the grammatical errors and repeated words made it seem like perhaps it was a very young person who wrote it. That was really my biggest issue, though there were others. A good editor could probably clean this up and make it a lot better.
The characters just didn't feel real or relateable, with the exception of the female professor (I'm blank on her name, sorry). After the THING happens to her, I really felt for her, but she was the only one.
The narration did NOT help this. The characters all sounded like Mr. Movie Phone, cartoon villains, or cartoon characters in general. However, if this guy ever throws his hat into the animation voice-over game, he could make BANK!
Also, the reason I bought this in the first place is because I somehow already had book 2, and simply cannot start in the middle. And now I'm gonna listen to the second because I HAVE to, and I feel like I should give it a chance and see if it gets better.
