Description

What if you woke up and began your morning by devoting the rest of your life to a murderous rampage, a never-ending cannibalistic spree? And what if you were only one of thousands who shared the same compulsion? This novel depicts just such an epidemic. It's the compelling, terrifying story of a devastating virus. You catch it through conversation, and once it has you, it leads you on a strange journey—into another world where the undead chase you down the streets of the smallest towns and largest cities.

Editorial Reviews

"Like Burgess's last book, The Hellmouths of Bewdley, the writing in Pontypool is taut with inventive and poetic metaphors. Overtones of the Night of the Living Dead abound and the novel is filmic in approach, style, imagery, and construction."  —Quill & Quire


"Pontypool shivers beneath the skin with unsettling wit. It is a deep book, but it is fun and magical as well."  —Globe and Mail


"Quite literally, a hell of a read, enough to satisfy the most jaded appetite." —eye Weekly


"An exquisite writer . . . [B]lissfully overarching descriptions and deadpan humour that ensure Burgess won't be filed as a horror writer."  —Uptown Magazine


"May be one of the most important novels published this year."  —Toronto Star


"Buy all his books."  —Now Magazine
