As movie monsters go, zombies are the most human. They were human at one time. So we are confronted with ourselves in a way, which is much more frightening and disturbing. (George Romero)
My stories are about humans and how they react, or fail to react, or react stupidly. I’m pointing the finger at us, not at the zombies. I try to respect and sympathize with the zombies as much as possible. (George Romero)
This book is part of the Monster Hunters series by Douglas Tanner, which is aimed at adolescents and young adults. I decided to read it, because 44 is young. Right?
Anyway, it was an interesting book.
The main character, Alec, discovers his dad works for a top secret government agency in charge of tracking and dealing with monsters, when a family vacation inadvertently turns into a hunt for Bigfoot.
The book is well written and full of twist and turns that will keep the reader’s attention. If you are young or youngish, I would recommend this book.
