    One thought on “Machines of the Dead”

    1. In the world of horror, zombies are King. I would venture to say they are the most popular monster in a true horror fan's eyes (and yes, I'm talking HORROR here, not paranormal romance!). I can only imagine this is both a blessing and a curse to any writer who sits down and decides to pen a zombie tale. A blessing, because zombies always have a place in the heart of their fanbase. A curse, because those same fans grow weary of the tired concepts that have been recycled over and over again since [...]

    2. A new take on zombies you say? A new and unique way to justify a zombie apocalypse? I didn't think there was much of a chance that somebody would come up with a new and viable explanation for the zombie apocalypse, let alone one that was intriguing. Lately, authors have been slapping on the same old `It's a virus turning people to zombies!' or something of that nature. But there aren't very many authors who try to take it from a completely different angle, and those who try, usually destroy a lo [...]

    3. David Bernstein here delivers a fairly generic zombie apocalyptic tale distinguished by a better than usual idea on how the dead return and why they eat the living. Machines of the Dead also benefits from being fast-paced and having a number of good action scenes as the protagonist and his small band of allies fight to survive. Speaking of, said characters are drawn out well, deftly pulling the reader into their struggles for survival.However, the evil scientist and his supportive band of soldie [...]

    4. This was a really unique explanation how the whole zombie apocalypse actually happen. Most zombie books do little to really explain what is actually happening in the "science" of why they are the walking dead. Machines of the Dead kind of broke out of the typical "zombie mold" and that my friends seems like a very hard thing to do. In an underground government bunker, a truly mad scientist has figured out a way to inject "nanobots" into a human being, helping them (soldiers) heal faster from inj [...]

    5. I usually don't go for zombie fiction anymore, because so much of it is the same, and doesn't really register as unique on my grid--they all seem to follow a similar template and not put much effort into it, or they go the humour route, which doesn't always interest me, but "Machines of the Dead" is one of the more unique zombie fiction titles to come out this year, and at least for the past few years. While not a complete reinvention of the genre, the author has invented a very creative, scienc [...]

    6. David Bernstein doesn't let up on the action in this zombie thriller about a man trapped in quarantined New York City during his version of the zombie apocalypse. The creative take on the origin of the disease is worth the read all by itself. Buy this book, but be warned that you’ll be searching for the sequel MACHINES OF THE DEAD 2 about ten minutes after you finish. It’s a must for fans of the zombie genre.

    7. As I continue my search for the ultimate zombie novel, I heard that David Bernstein's debut novel, Machines of the Dead, was a zombie novel unlike any that I've ever read before. That piqued my curiosity and I knew I had to check it out. Having read some of Bernstein's short stories, I knew the guy could write, so that wasn't an issue. The burning questions were, could he carry a novel (I've read many authors who write great short stories, but they fail miserably at novel-length tales) and what [...]

    8. BotsCan't trust a mad scientist. Nor people wish to do wrong. Granted it's not a unique story, but well written. The cast of characters were good and bad. Nice fast read for a quiet evening. Recommended

    9. When I read the title of this book I had no idea what to think. Giant machines that killed people, perhaps? As I began to read I realized it was something entirely different. A zombie novel that takes a completely new approach in how people are infected. You will not find outer space debris, or toxic radiation here. What Bernstein does is unique and interesting. If you can't tell, I am not going to ruin it for you.The story follows Jack and then his friend Zaun and a new member to the group, Lop [...]

    10. The writing was not good, a bit like I think mine would be if I wrote a book, but hey ho I'm not a professional writerI give it a resounding 1 star (see below)1 star - binned it before half way, please don't write anymore!!!2 stars - finally binned it after really trying, I mean really trying and I hate to not finishing someth.3 stars - finished it but boy was that hard work on times, it just about hooked me back in as I was about to dump it4 stars - great book but it lacked something, something [...]

    11. I gave this book 2 out of 5 starts only because it wasn't my thing. I'm not into zombies and gory books. but if I was into that kind of thing this book would have been really good. The writing style was a little too fast paced and not very descriptive. I had to make up how I wanted the characters to look because they weren't described very much. Other than that, this book was an easy read and was a good way to enter into the Halloween season. If you're into gore and zombies then this book would [...]

    12. Absolutely loved it. The characters in the book felt real, the story was enthralling and well thought out, and the book in general was a highly enjoyable experience. I REALLY look forward to reading the sequel!

    13. First time reading this author and can safely say I'll be reading more. Zombie novels are my fave and this one was done well. Kept me reading and no editing issues worth mentioning. I typically don't care for books under 325 pages.but this one at 190 was an exception. Recommended.

    14. Good book I liked it.Good book I liked it and the characters. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Hope the second book will be just as good or better.

    15. This book is action-packed, with a new take on the zombie genre. Simply, it left me wanting more. Thankfully, it is part one of a trilogy.
