Book Description

High school nobody Kenan is doing just fine in the midst of the zombie apocalypse, thank you very much, but when his dream girl Katy comes stumbling around the corner, she turns his world upside-down as they embark on a nightmarish road trip that leads to the very source of the plague of the walking dead. An action-packed horror tale laced with dark humor.

"Well-written and highly entertaining. Great dollops of black humour and some wonderful characterisation round out this extremely enjoyable romp. Definitely one to add to the private library." Necroscope

"The Zombie Driven Life is a fast-paced, zombie story that manages to be thoughtful, humorous, and surprising while giving zombie fans everything they love about the genre—gore, desperate situations, and a big body count. The perfect book to devour in a single day." Jeremy Bishop, author of Torment

"Wood paints a horrific scenario of a world in ruin and a few survivors struggling to find safe havens and a reason to carry on. Powerful and disturbing by turns, with plenty of black humour along the way. The Zombie-Driven Life is a great read." Alan Baxter, author of RealmShift and MageSign

"Give The Zombie-Driven Life a try - it may just set you on the road to obsession!" The Aussie Zombie

4.0 out of 5 stars The meaning of life - with Zombies March 31, 2012
By Kat
Format:Paperback
There is a slightly religious tone to The Zombie-Driven life, which manifests itself through a group of survivors that Kenan meets whilst escaping the city with Katy. Through conversations with the survivor group, Kenan learns that the bug was created and distributed by a power-hungry Reverend and he sets out to exact his own revenge.

Novella's are a hard kind of story for me to get into. I love short stories but my preference is for full-length novels, so The Zombie-Driven life, whilst a quick read was also the type of story I would love to read in the full, fleshed-out version.

Mr. Wood writes clearly and succinctly - the dialogue is realistic and despite the opportunity to have some pretty cheesy moments, it wasn't difficult to take the characters seriously. I particularly liked Kenan as the slightly geeky boy who comes to realise some pretty awesome things about himself and gains confidence throughout the story.

I like the original name for the zombies used in this story (you want to know, read it and find out!) and the characters are surprisingly well fleshed-out (pun intended) for a novella. If you haven't read a zombie book before, and aren't really sure if it's for you, give The Zombie-Driven Life a try - it may just set you on the road to obsession!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read February 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book! Although The Zombie-Driven Life is not my typical go-to book, this coming of age tale set in the middle of a zombie apocalypse was wonderfully entertaining. Teen aged Kenan is trying to find his place in a world where even the remaining humans are suspect. Kenan asks the age old question, "why am I here?" while battling flesh-eating monsters. Written in the style of Rick Warren's A Purpose Driven Life, Dave Wood's book is a wonderfully written, action-packed, fun read that I could not put down until I finished it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Twilight June 30, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for my daughter and she liked it so much she wanted to post a review. Here it is (Including the review title):

"The Zombie Drive Life was epic! I mean, in any book about zombies, there are really only so many big killings you can do...this one had just the right amount. I also love the concept of 'What's the purpose?'

A true five star book in my opinion and can't wait to see if he can write a sequel just as good."

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Short Story March 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an enjoyable short story, obviously the title lets you know that it is set in the zombie apocalypse. It has a touch of everything you want from a short story, details, action, romance, drama and an explanation.
