Author: Bob Fingerman. Fingerman’s latest is a spectacular entre in the zombie genre, largely due to his focus not on the undead but on the living, investigating our humanity and how easily we can turn on each other. But what truly distinguishes Pariah from other worthwhile entries is its humor in the face of bleak and extremely disturbing events (the sociopathic jock, Eddie, for instance, enjoys fishing for zombies in a manner that will turn readers’ stomachs). The lack of resolution is unsettling, but what could be resolved in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by the undead?

Posted on September 17, 2010. Author: Bob Fingerman. Genre: Horror, Speculative Fiction, Zombies, (Post-)Apocalyptic. Publisher: Tor Publication Date: August 2010 Trade Paperback: 368 Pages. After reading the synopsis, I was really excited for Pariah. So, when I learned Mr. Fingerman would be signing at BookExpo America, I engraved that baby on my calendar, set an alarm reminder on my phone – heck, I even dragged Ana in line to wait with me. Needless to say, I really, really wanted to read this book.

It wasn’t really, but it passed the time. Ellen had never been much of a history buff, but Alan was smart and men liked to hear themselves talk, so why not indulge him? Alan plucked a thick volume off his bookshelf and gestured with it, the book a prop to lend credence to his thesis. Is the test gonna be essay or multiple choice? she said, smiling.

A frightening, darkly comedic look at people surviving a zombie onslaught, from award-winning comics sensation and novelist Bob Fingerman.

A global plague has nearly vanquished mankind; the citizenry of New York City is no exception. Eight million zombies. Shoulder to shoulder. Walking the streets, looking for their next meal of human flesh. The residents of an Upper East Side walkup have joined forces to keep themselves safe, the pageant of walking rot outside their windows a constant reminder of the their foreseeable fate. Trapped in the safety of their building, the tenants find themselves at each others’ throats. When they spy a lone teenage girl who walks unharmed among the undead, impervious, their world opens up.

I really liked this book, and once I got about halfway through I could not put it down. However, I would not call it a zombie book. There are zombies, yes, but they are mostly background. Anyone looking for a bunch of action & violence will be bored... most zombie interaction happens in the last quarter of the book. This book is focused not on the zombies but on the survivors & how they are surviving / dealing with the situation. I like that none of the characters are perfect, in fact, very few are even likeable. It seemed like a very realistic take on a bunch of random normal people stuck in a building with nowhere to go.

It normally takes me weeks, even months to finish even the lightest of novels. I tore through "Pariah" in just a couple of days. Read it on the bus, while waiting in lines, at work when I should have been working. Fingerman is able to keep the story rolling and turning and twisting, all within the stagnant confines of a barricaded apartment building in post-zombie-apocalyptic Manhattan. We dive deep into the heads of the few surviving tenants, giving us diverse perspectives on the waning days of life in the bleakest and most horrifying of times. These insights are often dark and unforgiving, taking us to places that are ugly, grim, and repulsive. The insights can also be delightful- in a somewhat twisted manner- as they are from our main protagonist who, like Fingerman, is- or was- an artist, by trade. He sees the shambling masses of the undead, which pack the streets like Times Square on New Year's Eve, as artistic studies.

The characters are a defeated people. Starving and having exhausted all ideas, the building seems destined to become their crypt- until a young girl, Mona, is spotted on the street below. The undead seem repelled by her, parting the waves and allowing Mona to walk the streets of Necropolis untouched. Characters, now with a link to outside provisions, become more hopeful, more leisurely, some more dangerous. The undead are a backdrop for this study into humanity at its end. Even with a seemingly endless population of hungry, walking corpses outside, there is always the threat of the living breathing enemy in the room across the hall. And then there's the mystery of just how Mona does what she does.

I promise you, this book does not pull any punches, and will take you places you did not expect to visit. I hope you will all pick up this wonderful book and experience this for yourself!

Oh, and for you film geeks out there, these are the slower, Romero-type zombies, not the fast-running types, and all gloriously detailed by Fingerman through his artist's eyes.

I thought this was a great book. I can see why someone would say that you didn't care about the characters but honestly, look around you, your neighbors are who are going to be in your plot line if a Zombie Apocalypse happens. In a NY Apartment block, these are the type of people who would be stuck together. I thought Bob Fingerman did a great job and I will be looking for more of his books.

This isn't your typical zombie novel. Pariah is a serious book, thought-provoking and at times deeply moving. It's not unusual for zombie lore to deal with the pressing social issues of the times, but Fingerman's book does so in a way that really gets under your skin. The first couple of evenings I was reading Pariah, it gave me nightmares. You can't laugh off these zombies or the world they've created. Which is not to say the book isn't entertaining: it is. There are moments of great humor. And one of Fingerman's great strengths as a writer is his gift for creating engaging, realistic characters, people you remember long after you're done reading the book. Pariah is full of such characters, so deftly drawn you feel like you've been there with them (hence the nightmares, I suppose). Pariah is set in a Manhattan apartment building after the zombie apocalypse; the diverse group of residents are slowly starving to death, surrounded by throngs of zombies in the streets. Fingerman gives us plenty of time to get to know these people, before an unexpected and highly unusual stranger appears on the scene, changing everything and setting a whole new chain of events in motion. The book is brilliantly done. I've enjoyed Bob Fingerman's work for years, and I think Pariah is his strongest offering yet.

No review of Pariah would be complete without a mention of the wonderful artwork in the book. They're Fingerman's own illustrations, of course, and the narrative justification for their appearance is engaging and only draws you deeper in.

I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Pariah was a pleasant surprise. It delivered the requisite thrills and was respectful of the genre but also provided a depth not commonly found in these novels. Post-apocalyptic and zombie novels are guilty pleasures of mine. Those who share this interest must admit that there is an incredible amount of terrible work out there. While I appreciate every effort, much is excruciatingly bad (some of the self-published work has not even gone through a spell check). That is why it is great to come across a good zombie effort which can be rare.

Fingerman's book stands out because it followed the basic formula of a small band of survivors, interpersonal conflicts, impersonal and overwhelming siege, along with heroism and cowardice. I love this formula and can read it over and over again. Just give me a disintegrating world where the living are being overwhelmed by the dead and I am a happy zombie-guy. But the author adds new elements to the formula all packaged with legitimate literary skills. The premise, setting, characters, and plot-twist were welcome and fresh. It may attract readers not usually interested in the genre.
