Donna Yorke is reporting for the early shift at her office when her fellow co-worker is dazed by a strange coughing fit. This irritating symptom quickly turns into a bloody, choking spasm that kills her in minutes. After trying vainly to help several colleagues who are undergoing the same symptoms, she moves the bodies to a far-off section of the office. Afraid to leave not knowing what she’ll face outside, Donna gathers provisions and holds up in her small office with a sleeping bag, some snacks from the vending machine, and a flashlight to hold off the dark.
On the other side of the city, Jack Baxter is hiding in his home when he makes the crucial decision to leave his haven hoping to find other survivors. He does — a young girl named Clare, who lost her parents to the disease. Together they make their way into the city center. After spending a cozy night in a department store, they make a horrible discovery — the bodies are moving on their own.
When Jack and Clare hear a car, they take it as a sign of life. Not only do they find 2 survivors, they are told there is a group of about 50 people living at the local university. The university has become a symbol of hope for not only survivors but also the dead who surround the place. Drawn to the living, the re-animated corpses gather there. In a few short days, the somewhat calm corpses become violent, attacking survivors venturing out and stalking out places where the living are gathering.
Soon after, a soldier left behind after a failed mission into the city joins up with the university group. Knowing that the food supplies are running short, a decision is made by the survivors to make their way to the military base in the hope of finding provisions and others who have made it. What they don’t rely on is how the dead will react to the movement.
I wasn’t sure if I should refer to this book as apocalyptic or paranormal fiction. As far as the survivors are concerned, it’s the end of the world they know. Then again, it’s also a story full of the walking dead (though I was grateful that the word “zombie” is never mentioned). I enjoyed the sense of anarchy and the unknown Moody created, and he didn’t stray, which can be so alluring in a story like this one. Leaving the reader with limited knowledge made it thought-provoking to imagine what would have caused the metamorphosis.
This isn’t a book for everyone. While it’s not gross or repulsive, you won’t want to read it while you’re eating. And it does contain a few scenes that reminded me of a popular zombie film. But if you’re willing to look past this, AUTUMN: THE CITY is a fast and engaging read.
