Book Review: Tankbread by Paul Mannering

Tankbread by Paul Mannering

Tankbread is a disturbing post-apocalyptic tale. And make no mistake, it’s a dark, don’t-get-attached horror fest and a truly terrifying journey in to the absolute worst of human nature. But, (and this is a HUGE but!) it’s also a beautifully written story that left me both reeling and hopeful. The bottom line? I loved it and I can’t stop thinking about it.

It begins about 10 years after researchers really mess up; the entire world is infected with a virus that reanimates the dead. Yes, there are Zombies. But this is not just a Zombie tale! It is..I don’t even know the word I am looking for. Profound, I think.

From a father’s ultimate betrayal of his children (that was so hard to read!) to other shockingly depraved levels humans stoop to, I was left horrified a lot of the time. But then there were so many moments of human kindness, comedy, heroism, and sacrifice that always brought me back from the brink.

And yes, there’s a ton of fun Zombie gore, of course. The battles are wickedly gross and I love that! But, again, there was so much more to the story than Zombies. This book is a rollercoaster ride of the best and worst of humanity told by and about characters I will remember for a very long time.

Tankbread is a touching, though-provoking read and I don’t usually come to that conclusion after finishing a Zombie book. It is fabulous and I am really rooting for a Part Two.
