The Sleeping Dead

The Sleeping Dead - Richard Farren Barber There is a plague. People are ending it all and Jackson Smith thinks he may want to as well. Damn, all he wanted to do was get to his job interview and everything went to hell. Now all he wants to do is get back to his Donna.

I thought this one had promise, but the concepts were never fleshed out and reasons for the sleep never explained. It also could have used a little faster pacing to keep it moving. I was kind of hoping that Jackson and Susan would have just sat down an “slept” for the ending.

I don’t know how to rate this one, really. It was ok and maybe a wee more. I am giving it 2.5 Stars.
