    WARNING Do not read this book if you have a weak stomach I have a pretty strong stomach and DUST almost got me than queasy.This is definitely a different take on the zombie novel First of all, it is told from the POV of Jessie, newly awakened from the grave and becoming part of the Fly By Nights gang They are all undead zombie is not used, racist you know.These undead are strong, they communicate with each other, they haven t all lost their intellect, they have emotions and can love each other, and they have many other differences from the undead you are used to.I enjoyed DUST overall It is too wordy in some spots and drags a bit but it is a unique, stomach churning different view of the undead world I especially liked the dances.

    Could someone please tell me how Joan Frances Turner isn t one of the most popular writers in America I don t know the author personally, but am a huge fan Wish I knew her, what an interesting person she must be Turner s take on zombies is so well thought out, that I m surprised no one has done it before A world with zombies in it seems almost plausible I especially like how she tells the reader the experience of zombies from both a human viewpoint Frail and from the zombie s Dust.Turner does for zombies what Ann Rice did for vampires She takes the genre to a whole new level If you like a good story, well told, check out this author s books You won t be disappointed.

    I love zombie books and read a lot of the reviews and the book was priced for less than 2 and thought i d give it a try It s definitely got a good twist on the zombie idea But it tends to drag a bit and found myself skimming the last 50 pages This author completely recreates the zombie background while giving us a story in the foreground It was definitely worth the 2 i spent on it but i would have been upset if i spent than that I will than likely pick up other books by this author.

    Every author has a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, and Dust is no exception Similar to stories like Warm Bodies, these zombies aren t quite as mindless as one would believe, acting in ways that are quite imaginative and certainly horrific to the still living for now The scope of the narrative, however, exceeds its mandate, alternating erratically between slow scenes that need to go quicker and urgency that should have taken its time The final outcome combines so many thematic elements that it feels a bit overwhelming and perhaps unearned how the story got from where it started to where it winds up, specifically for the characters involved.

    An interesting zombie tale told from the perspective of a zombie herself, faced with the impending doom of a plague that is changing her kind and humankind as well The overall voice of the main character took some getting used to, and I found the author s use of fragmented sentences frustrating At times, subjects would jump back and forth within paragraphs which made reading confusing Over all, though, this book was a compelling and entertaining read.
