Omega Days: Die letzten Tage – John L. Campbell

Klappentext:

Das Ende der Welt kommt schnell, aber nicht schmerzlos: Das sogenannte Omega- Virus verbreitet sich mit rasender Geschwindigkeit über den gesamten Erdball und verwandelt alle Infizierten in lebende Tote, deren einziges Ziel die Jagd auf Menschen ist. Nur wer hart im Nehmen ist, hat noch eine Chance, der Armee von Toten zu entkommen, die sich unaufhaltsam ausbreitet und Land für Land, Stadt für Stadt, unter sich begräbt. Und wer so hart im Nehmen ist wie Pater Xavier Church und Waffenexpertin Angie West, hat vielleicht die Chance, die Toten zu besiegen …

Meine Meinung zum Buch:

“Omega Days – Die letzten Tage” erfindet das Rad des Zombie-Apokalypsen-Buches definitiv nicht neu. Der hier grassierende Omega Virus ist die Grundlage eines typischen Szenarios, welches man schon aus vielen anderen Büchern dieses Genres kennt. Die Welt geht von heute auf morgen unter, weil die Toten wiederauferstehen und nach Fleisch gierend die Seuche weiterverbreiten; gnadenlos, brutal und emotionslos.

Was dieses Buch jedoch von anderen unterscheidet ist die hohe Anzahl der Protagonisten. Aus mindestens sieben verschiedenen Perspektiven geschildert findet sich so für jeden Leser ein sympathischer Charakter und jemand, den man nicht sonderlich leiden kann. Dadurch fällt es einem jedoch auch schwer wirklich in die Tiefe der Geschichte einzutauchen, da sich die Spielplätze einfach immer wieder verschieben. Trotzdem schafft es Campbell seine doch oft stereotypischen Charaktere eine Entwicklung durchmachen zu lassen und nicht auf der Stelle zu treten. Dies fand ich interessant und beeindruckend.

Die Geschichte ist insgesamt in drei große Teile unterteilt. In “Schmutzige Sachen” erleben wir den Ausbruch der Seuche aus den verschiedenen Sichten der einzelnen Charaktere. Eine mehr oder minder heile Welt wird urplötzlich auf den Kopf gestellt und geht unter, geliebte Menschen sterben und verwandeln sich in untote Monster. Dennoch bleibt die Hoffnung, dass Hilfe nahen wird, dass all dies bald ein Ende haben wird.
Im zweiten Teil “Freier Fall” wendet sich der Fokus von den Protagonisten ab und es werden Episoden aus anderen Leben geschildert, die allesamt in die Hoffnungslosigkeit hineingehen und das neue, ungerechte Weltbild festigen. Gerade in diesem recht kurzen Teil gibt es einige Kapitel, die ich äußerst gelungen und emotional empfand.
Im dritten Teil “Die Asche des Teufels” geht es dann wieder zurück zu den Protagonisten, die sich nun in der neuen Welt zurechtfinden müssen oder daran scheitern.
Wie bereits eingangs gesagt ist dies nicht unbedingt ein Novum in der Zombieliteratur, dennoch konnte Campbell dies alles sehr spannend und fesselnd schildern und trotz der Gewalt und Brutalität auch Platz für Emotionen finden, die man so nicht unbedingt in einem Horrorbuch erwarten würde.

Ich bin ein Fan des Zombiegenres und daher ist für mich auch immer wichtig, um was für untote Monster es sich handelt. Campbell belässt seine Zombies recht klassisch. Es sind untote, recht träge Wesen, bei denen es jedoch auch etwas flinkere, jedoch nie rennende Genossen gibt. Sie gieren nach Fleisch aller Art, können den Virus jedoch nur auf Menschen übertragen. Es gibt ebenfalls Parallelen zum Universum der “The Walking Dead”-Comics.
Was mich sehr gefreut hat ist, dass die ganze Zombiesache sehr realistisch angegangen wird. Es gibt nicht nur die schlanken, jungen Untoten. Es wird jedes Gruppe bedient, ob jung (sehr jung…), ob alt, ob dick oder dünn, ob groß oder klein. Zudem werden auch die Protagonisten nicht geschont und es gibt generell einen hohen Verschleiß, umso weiter das Buch fortschreitet.

Bei einem Protagonisten fiel es mir leider schwer seine Wandlung nachzuvollziehen. Im ersten Teil benimmt er sich gänzlich anders als im dritten und dies konnte ich nicht greifen. Dies ist jedoch wirklich nur bei diesem einen Charakter so, bei allen anderen konnte ich ihre Handlungsweisen gut verstehen und fand ihre Entwicklung realistisch.

Was man zuletzt für interessierte Leser noch anmerken muss ist, dass “Omega Days – Die letzten Tage” der erste Teil einer Reihe sein wird und dies merkt man dem Buch auch sehr an. Erst zum Ende hin zeichnet sich langsam ab warum all die verschiedenen Schauplätze beschrieben wurden, warum es eine derart hohe Anzahl an Protagonisten gibt. Wer eine abgeschlossene Geschichte erwartet, der wird hier herb enttäuscht werden.

Mir hat dieses Buch sehr gefallen. Für Fans dieses Genres ist es meiner Meinung nach ein unterhaltsames, spannendes Buch, dass sich durchaus zu lesen lohnt. Ich für meinen Teil werde diese Reihe definitiv weiter verfolgen.
