HP reviews “A Place Called Hope”
- Good books
- No zombie apocalypse (yet)
If you haven’t read Daniel Humphreys’ A Place Outside the Wild, go read my review of that book. I can’t really talk about its sequel, A Place Called Hope, without spoiling major surprises in the first book. And A Place Outside the Wild may be the best zombie apocalypse book I have ever read. Humphreys incorporates the familiar canon and builds on it, both in service of the meticulously plotted story. Another highlight is the attention to detail regarding everything from guns to farming—an attention to detail in service of building narrative tension.
My only quibble with both books is that the dialogue—especially the manly banter—is a bit clunky. (The actual presence of manly banter, on the other hand, is nice to see.)
