In his new novel, John Ajvide Lindqvist does for zombies what his previous novel, Let the Right One In, did for vampires.

Across Stockholm, the power grid has gone crazy. In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up. One grandfather is alight with this, with hope that his grandson will be returned, but one husband is aghast at what his adored wife has become.

Here is a horror novel that transcends its genre by showing what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them.

    " This book focuses on some peoples experiences when recently dead loved ones come back, amid an uprising in general of the recently dead. I had a bit of a hard time getting into this book, and feel any type of connection with the characters. That said, it was still peaked my interest enough to want to keep reading to see what would happen. If you like Stephen King-esque horror novels, you would probably like this. However, it was just not for me. "

    " I'm not going to lie -- Let The Right One In was better. Think of this book as his sophomore album, because that's what it feels like. That said, this was an interesting variation on the zombie tale, something much more complicated than the George Romero canon that nonetheless dovetails with it. The characters are compelling, and you won't want to put the book down. "

    " First: This is NOT a zombie book. At least, not is the scary, flesh-eating, traditional sense. This is a book about love, faith, and beauty. It is frightening only in the sense that it forces us to consider things we never want to consider or that are beyond or realm of understanding. Things we typically bury deep in the back of our heads, never having to think about because we believe they can never be real. I thought it was excellent, tragic, and a tremendous study in sociology. "

    " I really loved this book. I was expecting the same old zombies eating brains story, but it is nothing like that! It's creepy at times and heartfelt at times. This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. "
