Book Review: Suffer the Children by Craig DiLouie


SuffertheChildren_Cover-200x300

I recently had the pleasure (and fright) of reading, Suffer the Children, by Craig DiLouie. This was my first time reading one of his books, though my husband is a fan. I am a fan after this! The premise of the book is that all of the world’s children suddenly die. Society comes to a halt as parents bury their children, many in mass graves, once normal and happy families fall into despair…  And then the children “wake up”, but don’t expect zombies. What follows is an innovative and fresh take on an often tired genre. The real horror besides the children (they are scary!) is what lengths people will go to ensure the lives of their children and how the real monsters are within ourselves. How far would you go? The book has strong everyday characters  who fall apart before our eyes and made for an engrossing and sometimes brutal, read.

The Fountaindale Public Library has copies of the book available for check out. If you like horror that makes you think and sticks in your head long after you finish reading it, get this book. Highly recommended!!!!
