The Reapers Are the Angels: A Novel

The Reapers Are the Angels - Alden Bell Yes, it's a zombie book, but it doesn't follow the typical zombie tropes. It probably feels so refreshing and different because the whole thing takes place at least a decade after the initial outbreak. People have settled into small colonies and have gotten used to surviving in the post zombie-apocalyptic world.

The narrative voice (third person, but definitely the voice of the protagonist, Temple) is very unusual. If you love flowery and poetic language, you won't like it. It's definitely a very character full voice. I think it added a nice layer to the story.

All in all, this was absolutely a fun monster-book read, but it wasn't the kind that lowers your IQ while you read it.
