BOOK REVIEW: Double Barrel by Grey West

If the Civil War Couldn't Beat Him, Who Are A Bunch of Zombies to Try?

So, I'm not one who generally cares much for stories of Zombies, Vampires, Werewolves ... the Undead in general. And the bookshelves (real or virtual) are cluttered lately with stories about Zombies, stories about Vampires, stories about Zombie-killing Vampires -- you name it, it's out there.

What first caught my eye about the Double Barrel series, honestly, was Honest Abe on the cover. It caught my eye, and I just had to see what it was all about. Who would have guessed that I would find the entire series impossible to put down. Incredibly well written and very compelling, I just could not get enough of the Barrel brothers and their Zombie quest!

As for Honest Abe? Well, you can't really call this Historical Fiction, or Alternate History, but it sure does make the story that much more intriguing to imagine that our 16th President was actually involved in a Zombie Apocalypse.

Who says you can't judge a book by it's cover? I say, if Honest Abe is on the cover, it's a MUST READ, as are ALL of the Double Barrel episodes. Very well done!
