About the Author

Jason McKinney lives in Madison, Tennessee with his wife, three children, and seven pets. Most of his time is spent chained in the kitchen, but occasionally the author is unshackled so he can write. He wasted twelve years of his life as an accountant, then grew tired of balancing other people’s checkbooks and decided to follow his inspiration. Memoirs of the Walking Dead is his first published novel. Also available is his werewolf apocalyptic novel, Dog World and his children's novel of a canine sheriff in Nebraska, Sheriff Teddy and the Mysterious Egg Thieves. EDITORIAL REVIEWS: "When I read the novel, it was after having plowed a hefty stack of more traditional zombie literature and I have to admit that Memoirs was a breath of fresh air." Jonny Berg - SwedishZombie.com "The book goes for $13.95 and is worth every cent! If you have a good chunk of time to invest in a great story that absolutely must have a new take on the Zombpocalypse, this is the book to pick up!" Jason should be very proud of his debut novel! It is a heart warming story bringing to light humanity’s will to survive, and what we are willing to do for those we love. With many humorous antidotes, and an intricate story-line, I feel many would enjoy this! - Angelica R. Hill BuyZombie.com sickening. Simply sickening. That is not to say that the author is not a good writer. Indeed, he managed to capture the essence of disgustingness. For that I must credit him. ABNA Expert Reviewer

More About the Author

Jason McKinney lives in Madison, Tennessee, with his wife, three kids, and seven pets. Sounds like heaven, right? That's because it is. It didn't used to be, though. For twelve years he wasted his life working as an accountant, balancing other people's checkbooks so he could put a little chump change in his own account. Eventually, he saw the light and quit, trading in the ledgers for the chains of the kitchen in his home and the demands of small children. Occasionally, however, he is unshackled and given some time off for good behavior--and to follow his inspiration. The bleak confines of a laptop isn't as soul numbing as the halogen lit cage of a cubicle. The result of his endeavors is Dog World, Memoirs of the Walking Dead, the Sheriff Teddy series and several short stories. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as he appreciate the opportunity to write it.

I am a major Zombie-Phile so when I was turned on to this book I was excited. This is not your average zombie book. Zombies display intelligence that they had in life and some even have a conscience. This at times was refreshing, at times I missed the typical horror style zombie. The writing style isn't always smooth and polished but despite that I really enjoyed this book. I think the editor of this novel (as well as his other book Dog World) did the author a disservice, misspelling and other issues can be found. This is a fun, light hearted read that will have you rooting for it's protagonist, which is oddly enough a zombie. I am currently reading Dog World which I am enjoying even more though I am more into zombies.

If you are into zombies you should definitely read this book! And if you enjoy it you should definitely read his other book, Dog World.

It can get pretty grim reading about the zombie apocalypse all the time so I was happy to discover that Memoirs of The Walking Dead is a comedy (mostly). There is no plot, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Man dies, man turns into zombie, man has series of wacky adventures. If one chapter is not to your liking, just keep reading because you might like the next one better. It's written in a light-hearted style and doesn't get too bogged down in the war between humans and zombies, even though that's always going on in the background. This is more the story of one man's journey to adapt to a new type of existence. Ultimately he learns that being a zombie is not so bad and might even be better!

This might have gotten five stars, but I deducted one due to a severe lack of proofreading and editing. I can always forgive a few, but there's at least one spelling error, grammar error or typo on practically every page and sometimes more than one. It was distracting enough to decrease my enjoyment, which is why it affected my star rating.

But overall, I recommend it, especially if you're in the mood for a zombie tale that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Format: Paperback
Although this book was laugh-out-loud funny (not to mention gross) in more than a few places, it's real strength comes from the very human foibles and relationships the zombies still possess.
They laugh. They love. They argue. They have (undead)awkward sex, which is a sentence I never expected to write about zombies.

In life, Paul Rierson would probably have been considered a bit of a sad case. Single, lonely, hopeless at socialising. It's only after he dies that he discovers his strength, finds love, and achieves something great, almost by accident. Accompanied by Charlotte the zombie cat, and the somewhat-needy love of his unlife Tracey, Paul Rierson embarks on an epic adventure of self-discovery.

There are a lot of layers in this book. On the surface it's a slap-stick comedy featuring the undead. Scratch at that a bit and you find an intelligent and detailed consideration of society, relationships and politics; underneath the funny is a bitter-sweet sense of sorrow for what has been lost.

The most fascinating bit for me was the zombie world building. The zombies in this book can still function on a moral and emotional level - and by developing laws and a code of living, they end up on the moral high ground. Overall, a great read.

Recommended for: people with a warped sense of humour and zombie lovers looking for a different take.

What's not to love about zombies? Come on. They're the bomb.

This is the first book I've read in which, as a reader, you actually root for the zombies. Most zombie apocalypse novels are written from the humans perspective and their hope for survival. But this story puts the reader right into the zombie mix by introducing Paul Rierson--overall decent guy, who just so happens to be the main character and, so it goes, a zombie faced with multiple moral dilemmas.

I found the story to be a great balance of humor and horror. The writing is fun, witty, and quite descriptive (it has a few yuck moments, but that's what zombies are all about). I do have to agree that the story could have used additional edits and a bit more proofreading. But overlooking those, I loved the book and Mr. McKinney's take on the whole zombie aspect.I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who loves a zombie good time.

Disclaimer: I currently work with the author. That being said, this is a very clever and fresh take on the walking dead genre. A lot of clever and humorous revelations regarding the process of zombification were explored throughout the book.

At times I was disgusted, creeped out, moved to laugh out loud and in a couple of parts; nearly moved to tears. I would recommend this to anyone that has a "nonstandard mindset" as it will probably appeal to them just fine. Looking forward to more works from Jason, the author.

This was a good book. It was a different take on the walking dead, from their perspective. It was humeros and the end was heart warming. A good detour if you've been reading a lot of bloody zombie stories

I enjoy my zombie books. I especially enjoyed this extremely creative and imaginative twist on zombies offered up by the author.

The book follows the life and "unlife" of a thirtysomething, ordinary gentleman named Paul, who catches the flu and wakes up dead. His cat also becomes a zombie. I absolutely love the cat. The book goes into great detail with how Paul functions, how he learns how to cope with his new "undead" status. I was particularly fascinated with the descriptions of his new senses and abilities.

My favorite part was the scene when he dutifully went back to work after being "undead". Hilarious.

The book is also endearing with touching moments between Paul and his love interest.

I loved this take on the "undead". They are just like us, but pulseless.

I do agree with previous reviews that the book would benefit from editing and tightening in some sequences, but overall a very engrossing (ha!) read.

I would recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a different spin on the zombie genre.
