Download Epub Format Â Hanteringen av odöda PDF by Ç John Ajvide Lindqvist ‘Let the right one in’ also by John Ajvide Lindqvist is one of my favourite reads of this year, a remarkable story, not just a vampire story but so much more.
‘Handling the Undead’ is just as good, another amazing story from John Ajvide Lindqvist.
‘Handling the Undead’ begins in Stockholm on a night when the weather is heavy and everyone can feel that something is about to happen and it does, in the worse way imaginable, people who have been dead for two months are returning from the dead, the government are not sure what to do, the families of the ‘reliving’ (as they are eventually called) are at a loss of what to do or how to feel about it?
‘Handling the Undead’ is a book that makes you think, what would you do? So much happens once the ‘reliving’ return, the governm Ok, I'm giving up on page 146 of Handling the Undead and giving the book two stars.
Sure, I only read about half the novel.
I don't care.
I feel like I can make the call.
Why, you ask?
I picked up this book off the “new fiction” library shelf when a woman was checking out about 14,000 DVDs and I didn't want to stand behind her and wait.
Last year I read and loved Let the Right One In, for which this is author is best known, and I was hoping Handling the Undead was just as moving and innovative except with zombies rather than vampires.
The last sentence of the previous paragrah contains an unfair expectation.
Zombies are, you know, zombies.
They sort of go “uuuhhhhh” and walk around slow (Unless you're in that scary as shit zombie movie, the one with Sarah Polley, which I can only watch five minutes at a time when I channel surf basic cable.

Well, these ones are not that nice, I guess.
They don’t want to eat you, so that’s a plus, but they have limited conversation and really their concept of personal hygiene leaves something to be desired.
But like Paul Simon said they’re all right in a sort of limited way for an offnight.
In fact I was behind these zombies all the way until the last quarter of the story when like a cornered Christian Mr Lindqvist starts babbling mystical abstractions in an obvious attempt to cover up the blatant fact that he did not know how to end his story.
Up to then it was compelling.
For a very specific period of time in a very specific place (Stockholm) dead people come back to life.
But in a realistic 2.
As a huge fan of Let the Right One In, I can confidently tell you Handling the Undead is not nearly as good as John Ajvide Lindqvist's debut novel.
This book is lifeless and barely kicking, just like the zombies it is about.
Now, of course I have to give the author credit for the fresh premise.
Lindqvist's zombies are not violent and are not monsters.
The story is not about them going after people to chomp on their A butterfly beats its wings somewhere in the universeand an electrical field lowers itself over Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and causes a piercing headache in everyone as well as making it impossible to turn of any electrical appliances or machines.
When the field lifts, something has changedthe recently deceased have come back to life.
and they want to come home.
That's the premise in John Ajvide Lindqvist's book.
This wouldn't normally be a book I would readmuch less buybut after reading a review in Weekendavisen, I felt like I had to read it.
And it is definitely not your typical zombie story!
The book follows three families.
David and his son Magnus who looses the mother of the family, Evawho dies a few hours before the dead wake up again and therefore is very interesting to authorities, especially becau Anticipating that the author of Let the Right One In and Little Star would grab me by the throat again, this time with a zombie uprising in Sweden, I was very disappointed to receive only a gentle bump.
Two stars are for John Ajvide Lindqvist's somber and ambitious attempt to try something radically different in a subgenre where so many authors simply follow the market.
It's an admirable try.
Freakish atmospheric phenomenon hits Stockholm during the summer and the lives of several characters are effected when the corpses of nearly 2,000 recently deceased Swedes rise from the grave.
Standup comedian David loses his wife Eva in a car accident only to watch her reanimate in Danderyd Hospital.
Their 9yearold son Magnus must cope.
A reporter named Mahler is dispatched to the hospital to find the staff struggling to detain the bodies who have h
I really enjoyed Lindqvist's "Let The Right One In".
I liked the feel of itthe tone and darkness and sadness.
I liked the immediate connection with the characters, that, while a little awkward at first, smoothed out and became effortless not long into the story.
I liked the multilevel creepiness, and then the flat out horror.
It was good.
There were some issues with the writing, which could come down to translation, but were distracting nonetheless.
Everything that I liked about that book is missing in this one, and everything I disliked is amplified.
And on top of that, "Handling the Undead" is just boring.
I gave up reading this around the 27% mark.
I said that I was going to give this another 50 pages, but I just couldn't.
Every single time I picked it up and saw whole conversations consisting of vague nondialogue ("Did you.
" In this book, the corpses of the recently dead in Sweden become reanimated which leads to numerous legal, political and ethical issues when it comes to dealing with folks who aren’t technically alive.
What kind of dilemmas would this cause society? For example, if this actually happened in Stockholm, I’m sure that that the publishers of Stieg Larsson’s books would chain his zombified ass to a desk and let him bang on the keys of a laptop until they got enough to put out a new bestseller, The Girl Who sJFnfJGgJOJ=I30&*(&U389kkl8.
Back to this book.
Sweden is experiencing a weird electrical surge that leaves people unable to turn off or unplug their electronics, and it also seems to be giving everyone some wicked headaches.
After a sudden intensification of the electrical field, it’s g
This one forms a trifecta with two other grand titans of modern horror lit I've read of late, "The Troop" by Nick Cutter and "The Girl Next Door" by Jack Ketchum.
Alright, alright, I was also mightily impressed by the militarynovelslashzombieepic "World War Z".
so that's quite a few there! For a snobby reader who adored the horror genre, I sure am blessed.
The eeriness in this one raises hairs & activates them good ol' goosebumps.
The relationships being tested as the natural boundaries of human existence is displaced for good makes the book unique and it is written in good taste, with fascinating stories that seem truethat the general existence of zombies is finally acknowledged in a book
