    Another triumph from Max Brooks! . . . I can’t wait until he turns every monster from childhood into an intelligent, entertaining page-turner

    Devolution is spellbinding. It is a horror story about how anyone, especially those who think they are above it, can slowly devolve into primal, instinctual behaviour. I was gripped from the first page to the last!
