The Infected Manuscript (3 stars)

40784969. sy475

This was an interesting short. I picked it up because it was a short horror story. πŸ˜€ Just my cup of tea. πŸ˜€ And it was free. I do so love free things. πŸ˜€ And because both zombies and authors going nuts as they get further and further is uber cool. it’s both frightening and cool at the same time.

the writing style was really nice, and I liked seeing our main character slowly realize how consumed he was getting with his work. (maybe there’s a good message about balance there for writers, huh?)

I think my favorite parts were the snippets of the manuscript itself. I’ve been on a bit of a zombie kick recently, so I really liked the zombie parts. I’d love to see a longer piece of work featuring Jon. πŸ˜€ I’d totally grab a copy of that!

I also loved the ending. It was a little sad but perfect. it really fits the narrator’s character arc. πŸ˜€

recommended for fans of horror shorts and zombies! I look forward to reading more by Julie Wenzel.
