    Found as a baby inside the smoldering husk of a meteorite that fell to Earth somewhere in the south of England, Gareth Wood grew to a facsimile of adulthood in western Canada.His interest in apocalyptic fiction began early on, when as a child he read The Hobbit The Battle of Five Armies was a world changer for young Gareth, leading him into fantasy, SF, horror and post apocalypse fiction.In 2004 Gareth sat down at his computer pondering writing a novella Despite his better judgement, he did just that and then kept on going One day Gareth will sing the song that ends the world, but that day is not today.

    Rise was written as a blog online originally and as the author mentions in the prolog, he wrote it as the days passed in 2004 2005 when the story takes place He paid attention to the weather patterns, studied the environments he was leading his characters through, etc So essentially, this book was fairly early to the zombie writing party before the onslaught of books started showing up in places like and on bookshelves at bookstores Of course, with its introduction via Permuted Press to a wider [...]

    3 stars for the format As a journal entry looking back at the zombie events, it doesn t have the immediacy that a good zombie novel requires It all felt so passive and too much like reporting I would love to see this author do a slam bang story with dialogue.

    Previously published in installments online, Rise tells the story of Brian, a regular Canadian Joe who, in the company of a few fellow survivors, heads out across the country in search of safety from the zombie apocalypse Author Gareth Wood presents Brian s tale in the form of journal entries, which chronicle events from the early stages of the outbreak through the group s harrowing cross country trek.Zombie 411 Wood s zombies are or less the Romero style undead They seem to move a bit faster, [...]

    I really enjoyed this book I picked it up because I was curious, and going through a little Walking Dead withdrawal, and I was hooked from the first few pages It was awesome The characters are well developed and the story is as intense as any story within this genre I really enjoyed the concept of the journal as a means of telling the story because while it is fantasy the journal made it realistic The only downside might be that this book is hard to find in paper form as it started life as a bl [...]

    This was among the first zombie books I read I like it Even if you can easily see that this is not the highest orm of literature, the story is quite solid and entertaining, there are good charactersto care about and a lot of adventures In particular I love how the book takes us to several scenes like a rescue mission to save some srvivors who locked themselves inside buildings Also the way the autor manages to include details of everyday life and give hope to the characters is quite charming and [...]

    Read this years ago for the first time, back when it was on his website for free Recently bought the Kindle edition of this book, so I felt a review was in order This is a good book It isn t great, it won t be a classic, but it is good I feel like the journal style in which it s presented really helps I like that the characters aren t automatically paramilitary bad asses, just supremely lucky in certain situations and incredibly unlucky in others It s a very basic journal about a zombie apocalyp [...]

    At first I was interested in this for the fact that it was a journal, but the audiobook possibly ruins the novelty of this because there s only one time that the voice is changed in the story to provide a bit of variety Hearing the same character recap days within the journal just gets old and boring fairly quickly.

    This is my third or fourth read of Rise and it just gets better and richer each time I hate to admit it, but this author has converted me I refused to read zombocalypse fiction prior to this Great starting novel from a new author Now, on to his second book, Age of the Dead, while waiting for the third book of the series to hit the presses.

    I really enjoyed this book Found it hard to put down, kept my attention the whole timeund he wrote a sequel to it Age of the Dead and read it as well Can hardly wait for his next book Well worth the read

    Gareth Wood s Rise is a unique experience It is an epic story, told from the point of view of one man making his way through a zombie infested Canada In his search for survivors, he truly comes into his own This is a great story, and I highly recommend it to anybody who is a fan of the genre.

    Everyone wants to write a book where the character journals now It wasn t bad, but I ve read better I purchased the first and second book together, so I m moving on.
