Cruise of the Living Dead by Scott M. Baker

An outbreak of the living dead aboard a cruise ship. Cannibalism among the survivors of the rising. Steampunk reanimates. These are some of the nightmarish scenarios that Scott M. Baker has written about. Now most of his zombie-themed short stories have been pulled together in Cruise of the Living Dead: A Zombie Anthology. This collection contains the never-before-published short story "Recognition" which follows the turning of a human into one of the living dead from the zombie's point of view.

 
Goodreads


Cruise of the Living Dead is an ok book. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either. I do think it will appeal to other readers though.

 

There is a variety of stories in this book, all within the zombie realm that others will probably enjoy. I felt like some of the stories were just a bit too short and felt unfinished. I did like the creativity the author used in writing these stories. There isn’t a particular story that stands out more or less than any others, which means there wasn’t anything that grabbed my attention and left an impression.

 

Overall, this isn’t a bad book, it just didn’t appeal to me as much as I had hoped it would.
