Review of ‘Swarm’

Posted on Updated on

John’s in a dead-end job, only staying because of his devotion to his wife and son. When a sick man enters his shop, life takes a distinct downward turn, not just for John, but for the whole world. What’s causing people to turn into flesh-eating zombies? John goes on the run with other survivors, but can he really do anything?
Swarm by Alex South is a zombie apocalypse novel set in London. Despite being a bit choppy, it’s an interesting take on the subgenre, with its focus on the individuals impacted by the ‘plague.’ Chillingly graphic descriptions of zombie attacks might be a bit much for the fainthearted, but zombie fans will eat it up—no pun intended.
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. Because of the choppy prose, I give it three and a half stars.

Photography 101: Swarm

Continuing my photo blogs based on photos I took during this past week in London – only in reverse order of when they appeared on the Photography 101 site, here’s my take on Swarm.

This flock of pigeons in Green Park, London, are swarming around a juicy collection of worms brought out by a recent rain.
