Saturday was a normal day. People went shopping. To the movies. Everything was just as it should be. But not for long. By Sunday, civilisation was in ruins. Adults had become murderously insane. One by one they became infected with a crazed, uncontrollable urge to slaughter the young - even their own children. Especially their own children. Will this be the way the world ends, in waves of madness and carnage? What will be left of our world as we know it? And who, if anyone, will survive? Terror follows terror in this apocalyptic nightmare vision by one of the most powerful talents in modern horror fiction. Prepare yourself for mankind's final days of fear.… (mais)

    SomeGuyInVirginia: Both could have been interesting, but the endings are so grossly trite they read like after school specials. Bad books.

On a day that would later be named Day 1, parents inexplicably began to murder their children. Nick Aten was staying at a friend's house, so he was "lucky," though he didn't feel that way when he returned home to find his brother dead and his parents missing. It didn't take long for him to figure out that everyone over the age of 18 had turned into murderous, psychotic maniacs.

I suppose you could call Blood Crazy a zombie novel, although I think it's an inaccurate categorization. The adults aren't undead, and they don't behave remotely zombie-like, there is just something alarmingly wrong with them. It's an interesting concept too, and Clark develops it nicely. Though it feels flat in the beginning, the plot progresses nicely and the increasingly odd behavior of the adult population is intriguing enough to keep you turning pages deep into the night.

The book tries to get philosophical in the end, but it mostly fell flat for me. I didn't really buy into it, and even though I really liked the effect it had on Nick (and my own opinion of another main character) it didn't connect well with what was actually happening. I still enjoyed the book though, it's a minor issue in what is otherwise a quick and exciting experience. I'll definitely be reading more by this author in the future. ( )

A great read... fast moving... great character development (with very little words) a diffrent concept in PA lit and very enjoyable. It didn't feel like 400 pages at all... a quick read you can't put down. ( )

As with any Simon Clark book I loved this one! Was quite different in the fact that it had no build-up to the event but started at the event starting. Fantastically written, had alot of things to think about and a great twist! ( )

Blood Crazy is your typical zombie apocalypse but with a twist. The adults in the world all go crazy and try to kill their children. The story follows one particular teenager Nick through this post apocalyptic world of zombie parents. His journey takes him through different challenges and through his journey we are introduced to a bunch of different characters.

I found myself really loving the premise of this book right from the beginning. The journey of Nick and later Sarah as well as other characters is interesting and scary at times. The situations the kids get into seem very real and I ended up really rooting for the kids to survive.

Three quarters of the way through the book the plot takes an interesting moral turn and kind of goes off the deep end a bit. The theories Clark suggests are a little far out there for me and in turn my interest in the book dived a bit; though I still had an interest in the outcome of the characters.

This book has a good character development and a very, “what’s going to happen next” kind of feel which makes for a good read. Overall an enjoyable quick read for anyone who likes books about the zombie apocalypse. ( )

*Spoilers*

Annoying and unsatisfying. What should have been a typical apocalyptic tale gets a moral crammed into it, and it’s done so badly that it doesn’t even read as irony. Why would Clark do this, what editor let him get away with it? He can write engaging prose so he’s far ahead of the pack. Why ruin a good thing by ending it with ‘The world is full of blood crazed maniacs, but you will be OK if you follow your heart’? The book reads like an after school special on the apocalypse.

Why do so many authors seem able to still turn out readable mysteries and thrillers, but not so with horror? Disappointments like the one I had with BC make me wonder if it's worth the time to even read horror.
