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

Customer Reviews

I was really worried about this book.
Justin Coons
Even though the book is hilarious, it carries a strong social message and makes an extremely compelling argument for the vegan lifestyle.
Sarah A. Shaw
This is a great book to own for any Vegan/Zombie lover.
Shannon Stacey

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!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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

Format: Paperback
This is the first "....with zombies" book I've read. I was underwhelmed with the idea before it took off. I work in a library, and I can't even say how many times well-meaning coworkers put my name on the hold list for Pride and Prejudice with Zombies. It got so bad that I had to post a sign on my workspace requesting that people stop checking it out to me and putting it on hold. It just looked stupid to me.

But then my friend sends me this one. I'll admit, I was kind of excited. I'd been wanting to read something by Arganoff. I mean, heck. There are only so many straight-edge vegans writing bizarro fiction these days, right? This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity. But there was a part of me that was dreading the whole thing. Zombies in literature, more often than not, eat turkeyneck.

Can I even say how happy I was when the protagonist of this little tale got a job working for a publisher of "...with zombies" books? And that she hates them? I was on board from that point forward. What ensues is a political food-drama in the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

Agranoff addresses all sorts of hypocrisies in personal food views. The shoe hits the fan when some scientists create a drug that prevents animals from feeling any sort of stress. This, in theory, results in a humane death for animals being slaughtered. And, as such, flesh-eaters can enjoy the meat they love without guilt. Of course, the drug hasn't been properly regulated and is passed on the the consumer of the meat, zombifying his/her brain. The only ones left....dun, dun, DUN....are the vegans.

But the satire doesn't end there. Agranoff pits the different types of vegetarians- the raw foodists, the freegans, the welfarists- against one another. Do animal rights extend to the undead?
