The Returned

by Jason Mott


With the recent popularity of zombies and all things undead, you would think that a book about long dead loved ones reappearing is just another modern horror story. The Returned is not that. Instead it’s a quiet, yet complex story about love, faith, and fear.
Harold and Lucille Hargrave’s son Jacob died at the age of 8 in 1966. Now, over 40 years later, he is brought home to them by a government agent who is as perplexed as they are but is just doing his job. It seems that this is happening all over the world and no one knows why. Are they living or dead? Are they back for good? What do we do with them? 
If you’re looking for an action packed zombie novel like The Walking Dead, this is not for you. If you’re interested in a story of ordinary people forced to deal with an extraordinary situation, then pick this up. The American television series based on this book, Resurrection will start in March 2014.
