Zombie books that are more than "zombie books"

A Listmania! list by Eric D. Knapp "Cluck" (New Hampshire, USA)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "Writers often use well-known symbols or themes to build a much more interesting premise. In my case, I blurred the line between living and dead to tell a story of self-progression, perseverance, and growth, and what do people say? "It's about zombies" ... well, here is my list of books that aren't really "zombie books" but sometimes get classified that way"
The Graveyard Book
1.  The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
The list author says:
  "Neil Gaiman belongs on every series reader's bookshelf.  His books are quirky and often genre-crossing, and always worth reading.

"The Graveyard Book" isn't about zombies, but it seems like a horror book (and it does involve a lot of graveyard time, and some killing).  In truth, it's scary but also sweet, and suitable for kids.  Yes - literature planted at the foot of a tombstone.  Read it."

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Deluxe Heirloom Edition (Quirk Classics)
2.  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Deluxe Heirloom Edition (Quirk Classics) by Seth Grahame-Smith
The list author says:
  "Does this:

a) Trick more people into reading classics by adding some zombie fight scenes amongst the original text?

b) Have the best cover art EVER (seriously)?
c) Make up for it's own lack of literary  merit with a humorous enough premise that its still worth reading?

d) All of the above.

The answer is "D""

Cluck: Murder Most Fowl
3.  Cluck: Murder Most Fowl by Eric D. Knapp
The list author says:
  "A zombie list isn't a zombie list without Cluck.  It's not really a zombie book at all but it does have a zombie chicken in it, as well as some chicken ghosts, a few chicken ghouls, and one bad-a** rooster.

This has won three awards to date and is sure to please - quirky, fun, and original."

Fried Green Zombies
4.  Fried Green Zombies by John A. Allen
The list author says:
  "Is there such a thing as a zombie book that whacky and fun? Oh yes, it can.  Hicks, women, aliens, zombies, and whacky zany fun.

'nuff said."

The Walking Dead, Vol. 11: Fear The Hunters

World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War
6.  World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks
The list author says:
  "There's a rule that says any list about zombies has to have World War Z on it.  If you're reading a list about zombie books, you've already read this."
$11.48   Used & New from: $0.36
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4,472 customer reviews)
