Editorial Reviews

Review

Has the potential to alter world views of those who read it...the social messages throughout are clear for those open enough to see, laugh, and personally reflect on it. --Dr. Colin Salter in the Journal of Critical Animal Studies

This is a comedic zombie tale that really works...enough violence and gore to satisfy the gore hounds with enough comedic relief to balance it all out. --Famous Monsters of Filmland

Never before has an attempted conversion to an alternate lifestyle been such crazily quirky fun...The author has a field day poking fun at the complications that ensue from conflicting subgroups. He is unsparing in his comic commentary --Hellnotes

What if something in our food supply turned everyone who ate meat into zombies and the only ones left were the vegans?

Being a vegan and a fan of zombie fiction, this was the book I've been waiting for.
David manages to slip in our message (go vegan) in a very humorous way.
He pokes fun at our movement, at the differing philosophies and organizations that promote veganism and at the recent glut of books with the title ...with zombies.

I laughed out loud several times.
The book also stands alone as a great zombie tale based on the premise that crap we put into livestock comes back to haunt us.

This is an enjoyable light fun story. If you are interested in the Vegan life style and enjoy Zombie stories then this will entertain (as well as inform)
The characters are well crafted and have enough depth to keep your attention.
The author uses humor to assist in delivering the sometimes not too subtle message that the ever increasing consumption of meat and dairy is wreaking havoc with the environment and the consumers' thereof.

The rise of "mashups" has seen the word vampire, werewolf or zombie added to many classic literary titles, to make them more accessible to young readers. David Agranoff's "The Vegan Revolution...with Zombies" is poking fun at these mash ups. His main protagonist is Dani. She works at a publishing house obsessed with mashing up great literary works with zombies and Dani hates it, but needs a job. She also hates her carnist co-workers, who, once they discover her recent conversion to veganism, get in her face with every ill-informed argument against veganism one can think of. When "stress free" meat and dairy products hit the shelves, things start to go wrong, zombie wrong! I don't want to be a spoiler so I will stop there.

This book is not just for vegans and zombie fans, but they will surely love it. It will also give our carnist/meat eating friends an insight into the sub-culture of the animal rights movement and the divisions within. The vegans, freegans, abolitionists, hardliners and raw fooders all fight it out to resolve how to ethically deal with the undead.

Agranoff, knows his stuff, P.E.T.A, Peter Singer, Gary Francione and even straight edge band, Earth Crisis, are all featured to great effect. David also knows his zombie trivia and flicks as well. In addition to this he has a great sense of humor, something which vegans are not usually credited with. It gets 10 zombies out of 10 from me!!

Sharing a house with two zombie-obsessed teenaged boys has left me something of an expert on the walking dead. This book has decent zombie action - tons of violence and gore and the old standby of having the living holed up inside a building while the undead roam the parking lots and paw at the windows. Seen it all before, but never tire of it.

However, the first part of the title is actually the real premise of the book. The vegans are revolting AND rejoicing that the nasty meat-eaters are finally gone and at last they can build their utopian meat-free society. If you don't get the idea early on that eating animal flesh is wrong, don't worry, it will be pounded into your brain with every page. This is a vegan manifesto masquerading as a zombie novel. I haven't been this "preached at" since that time my mother dragged me to a prayer meeting.

The typos are innumerable and frustrating. (At least I hope they were typos!) How does one get a job as a book editor without knowing the difference between "to" and "too", and "there" and "their"? There are attempts at humor - namely the quizzes at the end of each chapter, but on the whole, the book is just mean-spirited. Every non-vegan is stereotyped, put into a little compartment and sentenced to death. About the only interesting character development occurs when there is a squabble within the ranks of the vegans - basically over which group is the "holier than thou". It was hard to choose a side. The smug group or the self-satisfied group?

It is an accepted fact of zombie fiction that zombies must be killed. But to have characters ENJOY killing the zombies because they didn't like the people the zombies USED TO BE - that's just wrong. And it leaves a bad taste in my mouth

The Vegan Revolution... With Zombies is, as you might imagine, great fun for vegans and for zombie genre-lovers. Although I do own a DVD copy of the original (not the re-edited) zombie genre-inventing film Night of the Living Dead and I love it because it's really scary and a good story and great social commentary and I lived in Pittsburgh for a total of five years, I'm still not exactly a zombie genre-lover. In fact, I think the TV show The Walking Dead is so poorly written that it's unwatchable. No, I definitely think it's fair to put me in the other group of people for whom this book is great fun: vegans.

I mean, what a dream, right? Suppose eating animal flesh and secretions zombified all the non-vegans, and those who remained could create a peaceable, sustainable future? It's true, I'd lose almost everyone I love, but imagine the world that would be created if everyone descended from people who lived according to their compassionate values? Amazing. I'm pretty jealous of this fictional future.

And the way that this book takes the likes of Michael Pollan (in the book, he's "Michael Poland") to task is practically pornographically pleasurable for people like me. Although the popularly-echoed "arguments" against veganism that vegans hear wax and wane in popularity, right now, the notion I hear the most regularly is that it's OK to eat locally-raised, free-range, organic meat/milk/eggs/whatever. The people who say this almost never actually DO only eat 100% locally-raised, free-range, organic animals, but they pay it lip service.
