Yes, "zombie story" might be in the title, but don't be fooled. Mr. Swartwood has spun a tight little ditty about a strange world in which the "undead" are the norm.

To say more might give it all away. I need to seek out more stories from Swartwood--this was just enough to whet my appetite, and not a word more.

The premise here is a surprising one, and a very good one! What if YOU were the zombie? Only, zombie means human? And the humans are what WE would think of as zombies? Confusing? At first... but if we were the ones to be feared, would we consider ourselves zombies? No, we'd call ourselves humans, and fear those different than us.

While this was extremely short, it was also extremely well written, and makes me want to know more about this upside down world.

I picked this up because it was a free Kindle download and it had zombies in it and honestly because the cover looks pretty cool!

***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS*** ***SPOILERS***

So apparently zombies have conquered the world and have created their own society. Our main character Steven, is a 10 year old zombie boy and he hears a strange thumping outside. His friends and his parents can't hear it so he goes out and digs up a small cube of some kind. He meets a living person who he calls a "zombie." The "zombie" tells him that there are many colors, tastes, sounds, touches and smells to the world.

The "Hunters," then arrive and dispatch the "zombie." The Hunters are like the zombie police who come and kill any living human they find in order to keep peace. Steven returns home with his little cube and cups it in his hands while his parents argue downstairs. The cube melts and is absorbed into his body. His heart starts beating and he is alive again. He hears sounds, smells scents, sees colors and feels touches on his body. He loves every second of it but his parents call the Hunters and he is killed. But he regrets nothing as he as experienced life as it was intended to be.

***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS*** ***END SPOILERS***

I really enjoyed this book! I loved how this author was able to describe things so well and was able to remind us of the little joys of life such as feeling a fresh breeze blow across our bodies, or feel the sun on our body as it rises. Plus it was really a unique take on the zombie apocalypse! The zombies are the new norm and the humans are seen as the monsters that need to be eradicated. But we have our main character who is a zombie who realizes how wonderful it is to be alive.

The uniqueness of this story was its main appeal: what if the world were zombies and a human was oddity and considered the monster?

I think a bit more elaboration would have helped the tale. It was far too short.

I gave this 4 stars because I felt it was well written and interesting. It's a novel approach to a zombie story to come at it from the perspective of the zombies.

I wasn't going to get this story but I am glad that I did. It was an entertaining story that was different. The zombies being the norm. I thought that was fun. I will check out other stories by this author.
