Sadly, there seems to be nothing new or creative with zombie stories anymore. However, because I dislike the whole stupid vampire genre right now [Twilight soap opera saga and Sookie Stackhouse / True Blood], BUT I did like Lindqvist’s “Let the Right One In,” I bought his new book yesterday. I have hope that Lindqvist can tell me a new story about zombies.
Regarding the current vampire romance genre, in my opinion vampires should be presented as the monsters they are, like in “30 Days of Night” — and not as sparkly, romantic and sexy potential mates.
Think about it — to survive, vampires must rip open their victims and exsanguinate the body. Sexy? really?
The vampire craze: on its last leg.
