Dead – Craig DiLouie

Eine Seuche unbekannten Ursprungs überrollt die Menschheit und stürzt diese in den Abgrund. Die wenigen Überlebenden versuchen ihren Weg zu gehen. Der Leser begleitet fünf davon, zusammen mit dem kläglichen Rest einer Militäreinheit und ihrem Panzer. Sie müssen sich alle mit Horden von Infizierten und anderen schrecklichen Mutanten herumschlagen auf der Suche nach Nahrung, Wasser, Benzin und einem sicheren Ort zum Verweilen. Doch jedes Gruppenmitglied hat auch eigene innere Dämonen zu tragen.

Craig DiLouie wirft den Leser sofort in das Geschehen hinein, so dass ich die ersten 50 Seiten trotz eines gut lesbaren Schreibstils leichte Orientierungslosigkeit verspürt habe. Ich musste mich anfangs zurechtfinden, die Charaktere zu sortieren lernen und einen Zugang zur Geschichte finden. Danach konnte man der Handlung aber ohne Probleme folgen. Sie ist rasant, actiongeladen, aber trotzdem auch charakterdefinierend geschrieben.

Sehr gut gefallen hat mit der Charakterausbau. Obwohl man es mit einer relativen Fülle von Protagonisten zu tun bekommt, wird doch für jeden Platz geschaffen um seine Geschichte zu erzählen. Jede Handlungsperson ist anders in die globale Katastrophe hineingeraten und hat sie anders bewältigt und dennoch haben alle zueinander gefunden. DiLouie zeigt hier ein sehr realistisches Menschenbild auf, da jede Person sowohl gute als auch schlechte Seiten besitzt und demnach auch nicht besonders glorreiche Dinge getan hat.

Gefehlt hat mir bei “Dead” durch das ganze Buch hindurch der rote Faden. Die Überlebenden versuchen ihren Weg zu finden, jeden treibt auch irgend etwas an, dennoch fehlte mir ein allgemeiner Handlungsstrang, der mich als Leser an die Hand nimmt und mich einem Ziel entgegenführt oder auf dem Weg dorthin scheitern lässt.

Obwohl man es anhand des Titels und des Covers vermuten könnte, handelt es sich bei “Dead” streng genommen um keinen Zombieroman. Bereits sehr früh wird klar, dass die infizierten Menschen zwar ähnlich wie die wandelnden Toten agieren, jedoch nie gestorben sind. Für mich liegt in dieser Tatsache ein sehr großes, dramatisches Potential, welches leider nicht ausgearbeitet wurde. Ich hätte mir gewünscht, dass wenigstens ein paar Personen Probleme damit hätten, dass sie lebende Menschen wahllos umbringen. An solchen Themen könnte man Protagonisten zerbrechen lassen und der Geschichte dadurch weitaus mehr Dramatik geben. In diesem Buch wurde aber einfach gemetzelt und die wenigen Anspielungen auf das frühere Leben der Infizierten sind kaum der Rede wert.
Stattdessen gibt es neben den Horden von Infizierten noch Mutanten, die direkt der Hölle entsprungen zu sein scheinen. Warum muss man bei einer bereits existierenden, schrecklichen Bedrohung noch solche Dinge einbauen? Fand ich etwas schade.

“Dead” von Craig DiLouie war für mich als Zombieromanleser ein durchschnittliches Werk, dass aber bei Liebhabern von actiongeladenen, schnellen und rasanten Geschichten mit Horrorelementen durchaus Anklang finden kann.

    Thanks for your article. It is very unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has already been able to to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu virus, swine flu, and the first ever entire global downturn. Through it the industry has really proven to be sturdy, resilient plus dynamic, discovering new solutions to deal with trouble. There are often fresh difficulties and the opportunity to which the industry must once more adapt and act in response.

    "Afinal, o próprio Marx não era marxista…"Que grande patetice diz o Miguel Serras Pereira. Na verdade não me surpreende, vindo de quem vem.O que o Marx pretendia com essa frase era demarcar-se da divulgação que alguns epígonos (Jules Guesdes, Paul Lafargue) faziam das suas ideias.Especialistas da manipulação e da tergiversação têm, desde então, utilizado inescrupulosamente fora de contexto essa ironia do próprio Marx.RF

    You may not see the connection, Doug, but I wasn’t a minute into your story, when “The Player” came to mind. Personally, I think your story would have made a great side bar to the film – and we haven’t read all of it, yet. Who knows, maybe it could have been worked so that Mr. Jellyfish is the one who gets nabbed in the dark alley. Maybe Tim Robbins could be Mr. Euro? Anyway, just a thought.

    There is the principle of add-on buying. I often go to Walmart for some small item I could indeed print myself with a 3D printer. And while there I buy a bunch of other stuff. And of course, not everything is manufactured. Food for instance. Also, people want luxury goods. It will be interesting when someone steals the exact specifications for a Rolex, puts it online, and everyone gets to make one ;’) Ah, the patent lawyers are going to have a field day.

    I used to gripe about the apparently over-enforced safety rules at the TWRA range nearest my home in middle TN. That was before the day we all had to stop and leave because some moron had managed to pop himself in the abdomen with his POS .25 while trying to clear a jam. End results: He lived, I had to stop my shooting trip after putting precisely six rounds through my GP100, and the current rules enforcement make the previous levels look quite mild.

    When you guys start arguing for the national dissolution of France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Rumania, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United States, then there will be something to talk about.ALL states originated in a defensive orientation, protection FROM enemies. And, even as the threats from adjacent enemies in France or Canada no longer exists, the states are still regarded as rational. They ALL originated from conquest in some form.

    Pero lo que tú propones no podría ser usado nada más que en entornos de desarrollo. Por ejemplo, todos los cambios que se están viendo ahora no serían posibles de esa forma. Sólo es posible si los cambios son más lentos, por lo que no vale. Supongo que tú sugieres algo estilo a las versiones alfa pero que se sigan actualizando constantemente, pero sólo hay que probar una versión alpha para darse cuenta de la inestabilidad del sistema.Sólo es mi humilde opinión,Saludos!
