Meet Andy Warner, a recently deceased everyman and newly minted zombie. Resented by his parents, abandoned by his friends, and reviled by a society that no longer considers him human, Andy is having a bit of trouble adjusting to his new existence. But all that changes when he goes to an Undead Anonymous meeting and finds kindred souls in Rita, an impossibly sexy recent suicide with a taste for the formaldehyde in cosmetic products, and Jerry, a twenty-one-year-old car crash victim with an exposed brain and a penchant for Renaissance pornography. When the group meets a rogue zombie who teaches them the joys of human flesh, things start to get messy, and Andy embarks on a journey of self-discovery that will take him from his casket, to the SPCA, to a media-driven class-action lawsuit on behalf of the rights of zombies everywhere.
I love a novel that strikes out on its own and if you’re fed up of the typical zombie bumbling cannon fodder affair that’s out there, then you really have to get yourself a copy of this book. It has misadventure, it has some twisted events and is a title that demonstrates that whilst you may be deceased you’re still human and need interaction. It’s very clever, it has some great authorly slight of hand and above all else it’s a book that the reader can really get their hooks into. Add to that an author with an understanding as well as a love of the Zombie and you know it’s a book that’s going to impress which made this hard to put down and a real joy to read. The only real warning to come out of this book is if anyone however offers you venison jerky you might want to pass. LOL
