A Book in Review: Handling the Undead

Handling the Undead By: John Ajvide Lindqvist
Fiction: paranormal 363 pages
Book Count: 11

First, the author of this book lives in Sweden, so like all international books there are the little quirks of different spellings, ways of writing dates and times, etc. And as this book uses a lot of time lines it is rather noticeable.
Besides that this book is quite unique. It is a story of zombies, or the reliving as they are called in the book. However, unlike most zombie stories this isn't really a horror story. It is more a book about different people and families and how they deal with death. It also deals with different ideas about the soul and the afterlife. It is one of those books on death that it is really about the living.
