It has been a while since I’ve read a book by Duncan P. Bradshaw. I had forgotten what a truly gruesome author he is. Class Three was the story of Jim and Phillip during the first days of the apocalypse. Class Four picks up with one of my favorite characters from Class Three, Francis.
In Class Four we are introduced to a multitude of characters, each with their own little story of the apocalypse. Tying all of this together is Francis and Nathan, as Francis strives to find a place where the young boy can be safe. Duncan P. Bradshaw has created some great over the top characters, all of whom help to pull the reader into the story. At times I found myself wondering what the h-e double hockey sticks is he going to do next, and to my surprise it was bigger and better.
The true genius of Duncan P. Bradshaw is the rollercoaster ride of words and expressions. I have never seen an author go from the depths of dark and gore to laugh out loud all within the same paragraph. I don’t know if this comes naturally to him or if he spends hours torturing himself while devouring tea and biscuits.
On a bit of a side note, I have to admit, I did have to get out my English-British dictionary from time to time (I do love all of the different expressions). Although, if you let your mind just flow with the story it usually isn’t too difficult to understand his intent.
Class Four has left off at a complete point, but there are many new storylines to follow from here. I am eager to bite into whichever one comes next.
