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

This is a great book to own for any Vegan/Zombie lover.
Shannon Stacey
The political commentary runs deep in this book, which is rather deceptive in light of the goofy subject matter.
Caris O'Malley
It actually raises a lot of good points and makes you think.

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.

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

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!!

This is a great book to own for any Vegan/Zombie lover. I couldn't put this book down. If the author ever wrote a series, I would buy every book and proudly display them on my bookshelf.

If you dare to call yourself a true zombie fan, you must have this book. This is one of the most creative, original (and not to mention hilarious) concepts I've ever had the pleasure to come across in the whole genre. Doesn't matter if you're vegan or non-vegan, this book will entertain the living crap out of you. I was thrilled by the good use of pop-culture references (the cool kind that I can relate to). There's also a fun little pop-quiz at the end of each chapter that will make you get up and find a pen so you can join in on the excitement. I'm non-vegan, but I found that it was really fun to see things from the vegan perspective. Vegans are just as awesome as everyone else. Especially when they have machine guns. Then hell, they might even be more awesome than anybody.

And another reviewer said the book had too many typos in it. Ignore that. There's like four. Not a big deal.
