Lori R. Lopez's 3-Z is a collection of three horror stories. All the stories have one common theme; zombies. Pound Of Flesh is about a zombie apocalypse that follows a woman on the verge of being eaten by a zombie. A Big Problem tells the story of Dagdon Klinker, a medical specialist who makes house calls and attends to patients displaying unusual symptoms. His latest case involves a man whose symptoms range from falling body parts to fluid leaking from his brain. The last story, Knock Knock, is about Nelle, a woman who lives a sad, boring life with her cats and feels lifeless. She compares herself to a zombie but wait until she discovers the true nature of the person knocking at her door.
I had fun reading these stories because they are captivating and plausible. Each story presents realistic characters like a mother, a lonely widow, and a paramedic. Lopez's 3-Z did what a horror story is supposed to do, it frightened me, but it also entertained me. If you are a fan of zombie-related yarns, then this is the book for you. It has all the zombie stereotypes and gruesome scenes. These might be triggers to sensitive readers, but other than this, I loved the storylines. Lori R. Lopez added little details about the characters, which led to plot twists. Just like in a classic horror movie, I could not help but root for these characters even when I knew it might be hopeless. I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading horror novels. Brilliant writing.
