    Ok, his ad was pushed around facebook so i clicked on it and thought what the heck, it might be a nice read around this time of the year. Well, to my surprise it was! I like that it takes place on both coasts cuz I actually lived in LA and NY so I recognize some of the "sightings". Boy, do I love all the gore! Very visual, good story-telling. I cared for some of the characters, and some of them I just wanted them to die and become flesh. I've read a lot of horror. This book is good. Detailed. It gets in your head!

    "Loved it! If you love horror this is good stuff" I was pretty surprised. It turned out to be quite an interesting book. Loved the story and the characters. This guy is very visual describing the gore, which I like. I also didn't mind the end of the book since I'm overall sick of all problem solved, happy endings. Way to go, dude!

    "I didn't sleep well for three nights......" This is truly a book that keeps you up at night, looking at the dark corners of your room. Expecting something to move. That shouldn't be moving. Robert Zachar is an author who knows how to create disturbing visuals through the printed word. A necessary talent for the horror genre. Once I started reading, it was hard to put down. And even harder to continue, not knowing what would come on the next page. For the first time out, Zachar has put a novel out that ranks with some of the most stunningly horrific I've read. Great job. When's the next one coming?

    "Dead Horizon" Get ready for a relentless, brutal, tale of cataclysmic horror with tasty doses of wry humor. There is definitely a storyteller's wit and a gift for prose at work in Robert Zachar's debut novel, "Dead Horizon". When some kind of comet or missile hits New York city, spreading an orange cloud that kills tens of thousands and then reanimates the dead, (which, of course, have a taste for human flesh, thus creating more zombies), Hell on earth begins. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Two brothers, a young eastern european woman, and a brilliant, yet probably psychopathic, friend with his own personal arsenal and a samurai sword try to stay alive as they trek across Los Angeles to the ocean with hopes of sailing away from the carnage. Meanwhile, a slaughter of unfathomable proportions is taking place in New York as a massive contingent of National Guard troops do battle with a million zombies in Central Park. Man, does it get messy. One... More > thing that's still great about reading a novel is, rather than films where the story and every shot is limited by the budget - and horror films are traditionally relegated to the low budget catagory of film making - that it doesn't cost a nickel more to write a story on a mass scale, taking in both coasts, enourmous casts of hundreds of thousands, the destruction of an entire themepark, and vast armies doing battle with a sea of zombies, than it takes to tell even the smallest and simplest story. The only factor is the strength of the writers vision and his ability to get it on the page. Robert Zachar succeeds quite well and we all get the benefits of his sick, twisted, vision of what's fun to read. For a freshman effort in the horror genre, this novel is outstanding. I dare you to read this book before going to bed and not have the graphic, grissly, images Mr. Zachar so deliciously offers up spinning around in your head. There is the occassional typo and a few glitches, such as when a character "...took a HARDY swig of his cola" when the writer meant to write "HEARTY", but these are entirely forgivable as it's the story that matters. Dead Horizon is the equivalent of the R-rated summer blockbuster movie in a novel. Make some popcorn, sit back, crack this book and enjoy the ride. Easily 4 out of 5 stars.< Less

    "This is a good- at times wonderful- book" In his first novel, Zachar's characters come alive the way one might expect from a seasoned vet. This was a real page-turner. I AM IMPRESSED!!
