Book Review: 'Zombie Complex: The Battle for Chattahoochee Run' by Alexander Pain

Alexander Pain's Zombie Complex: The Battle for Chattahoochee Run is a fun take on the zombie apocalypse. 

5 stars:  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I had a blast reading this book. The story revolves around a very ordinary apartment complex in a very ordinary neighborhood in Atlanta. The residents must step up when the zombie apocalypse brings life as we know it to a standstill. Fortunately, the protagonists have a sizable gun collection and quite a lot of ammunition.

Author Alexander Pain writes with a breezy style that is effortless to read, with believable, relatable and eminently likable characters.

The book takes you on an adventure. It’s both fun and funny. The plot is fast-paced, with many exciting moments. I especially liked Pain’s social commentary on living and working with other cultures.

My only criticism is the book ended too abruptly for me. I hope there will be a Book 2. There are so many promising threads here that a second book could pick up and further explore.
