I could not find anything I disliked about this book. It is a joyous romp through the sci-fi genre, cheekily alluding to major stalwarts of the genre such as Star Wars, Twilight, the X-Files, and numerous zombie novels.

The inhabitants of the planet Zyrplex (a joyous name which I love!) have such a good life that they get easily bored, and then invade other planets for fun, choosing planets where there is inferior technology to prevent bloodshed, & them play mind games, blowing up condemned buildings or sky-writing dirty jokes. The author sets out this concept on the first few pages, and them proceeds to have immense fun telling the story of an invasion of earth that just happens to take place as it is in the grip of full scale zombie apocolypse. There are running jokes at the expense of the main alien & his appearance (I won't give this away but anyone who loves Star Wars will enjoy the reference), the humans who have escaped the zombies, and a couple of vampires thrown in for good measure.

The book is an easy read and I tore through it, giggling to myself all the way. That is not to say the book is simplistic or poorly written, quite the opposite. It is tightly plotted and the prose flows smoothly, a sign of skill. Completely recommended for fun lovers of all ages.

Book Info: Genre: Horror/Sci-fi Satire Reading Level: Young Adult and up

Disclosure: I picked up a copy on Amazon when it was free; I also noticed the author was wanting reviews, so I'm happy to provide an honest review

Synopsis: In a satirical combination of two end-of-the-world scenarios, a zombie plague is quickly followed by an alien invasion - in a time when humanity is already struggling with vampires.

Landing dead center at a college campus swarming with zombies, the aliens soon realize that their abduction mission is going to be quite a bit more complicated than they'd imagined. The presence of vampires only makes the situation worse.

Will humanity survive the dystopian absurdity?

My Thoughts: The tone of this book reminds me a great deal of the works of Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams. This is an extremely silly little tale, but lots of fun to read for those of you who, like me, enjoy the extremely silly.

Mashing together a vampire infestation, zombie uprising, and alien invasion, you'll laugh at the antics of the aliens, roll your eyes at the vampires, and generally wonder WTF this guy was on when he wrote it - but you will definitely enjoy the ride. Recommended if you like to laugh (and who doesn't?).

What was so great about this story? Many things. First: the title. I know that it basically tells you what you're in for. It leaves no mystery...but it works. I read the title and knew I wanted to see what it was about. How on Earth (or in the Universe, haha) would an author write a story involving Zombies AND Aliens without making a worthless piece of crap story? Well, I think it all comes down to whether the author has a good story behind the "clever" idea of throwing random disasters together.

Forkum put a brilliant twist this story. I was expecting one thing, and got something much better. Aliens coming to Earth with plans on destroying things, only to find out Zombies have already done the job for them. And what else happens that I enjoyed? No, no, I can't reveal that here. You need to read it for yourself.

What I can discuss is the writing. There is nothing spectacular about the writing. It's not going to be the "next great literary story of our time." First of all, I don't think there are many of today's writers who'd be up for that honor. I don't really care about that anyway. What I do care about is that the writing is clearly intelligent enough to for a humorous yet moist read. Authors can throw together a piece and I'll just put it down because it's too dry, tries to be too clever by being too wordy, and other ways that harm a story (in my reading eye).

In short, since I may have started a tangent with that last bit, I greatly enjoyed this story. I was refreshing. It was a bit off the normal look on zombies and doomsday. The solution to the conflict was amusing. And there was also a good use, but not overuse, of commentary on the state of human beings. All in all, if you like a bit of humor, some zombies, aliens, and vampires, you might like this story. It takes no time at all to read and will leave you with a smile.

If you like humor and satire, this is for you.

Written in conversational style, it's an easy read. Jokes left and right. Very entertaining. Great quotes as well - "There are times when we must tell our conscience to shut up, especially when it interferes with our having a good time." or "What's in your heads, zombies? I've got brains in mine!" As a comedy writer myself, I wish I would have thought of those lines myself.

Get it, it's a great book, highly recommended!

This is entirely lovable and funny as can be. If you like satire with a "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" feel to it, this book is for you. I enjoyed every minute of it. I do have to insert my author's observation and say that there were a few "tell" moments that could have been better worked, but for all of the fun and laughter, in the end I didn't care about those a bit. This is a quick read that will delight you from start to finish. It's well produced and shows real professionalism on the part of the author. Five stars, two thumbs up and anything else you can say to proclaim this a must read.
