I just finished reading Dead (a lot). It wasn't exactly my first choice genre, however, I was absolutely hooked from the very first line to the very last. It was (sorry for the cliche) a page turner, expertly written, laugh out loud funny, and a thoroughly enjoyable story. More importantly, it wasn't just another zombie story. It was a powerful social commentary on the ability of differently abled people to make a great contribution to society. True, this book is a fast-paced, great read, but it is also a great reminder of the importance of tolerance and creating community, regardless of what the members look like. I can't wait for volume 2.

(Disclosure - I know the author)

I have never been a zombie fan, "The Walking Dead" gives me nightmares, and I'm far removed from my teen years. But I haven't giggled through a book like this in years. I bought the book, knowing I had a long plane flight with time to kill; and I spent the entire flight giggling, snorting, and outright guffawing. I was "that person" on the flight: laughing out loud at a book, waving at you, saying, "This is great! You should read this!"

Dystopian/apocalyptic novels with a teen protagonist are a dime a dozen right now. But those with a male lead with accurate "teen-speak" are quite unusual. You can tell that the author's background is musical theatre where dialogue is of critical importance. The bickering between the siblings is captured well, as is their choices in words, phrasing, and general decision making and behaviours. The "zombie apocalypse" is almost secondary, as the relationships and struggle of the characters is the what drives the story. For those from or who have lived in New England, the environment is captured beautifully as are the quirks of the local inhabitants.

Highly recommended!

When I grabbed my cousin's copy of 'Dead (A Lot)' off of the kitchen counter and decided to read the first chapter of the novel on a rainy Sunday afternoon, I didn't know what to expect from it. But what I do know is that after I finished reading those first few pages, I quickly tore into the remaining 250-something in a manner that can only be compared to the ravenous appetites of the "poxers" (zombies) that the book carefully details. For fans of the genre, or any sci-fi/doomsday lovers, this books is a must-read. But for people, like myself, that like to keep an open mind and will read anything as long as it sparks their interest, this books is still a must-read. Mr. Odentz's writing style is a breath of fresh air. The novel is very easy to follow and is written in enough detail to satisfy the reader's imagination. And on top of that, the plot is original, full of twists and turns, and edges the reader on until all of its elements come to a bang at the book's end. I found it amazing how much I laughed while reading the novel and yet still managed to understand the gravity of living in a post-apocalyptic world filled with the walking dead. You will definitely become attached to the characters and will enjoy watching them change with the world around them. I know a 14 year old and a 63 year old reading this book, and both of them love it. No matter who you are, I promise you that you will find something in 'Dead (A Lot)' that appeals to you. I look forward to reading more from Mr. Odentz, and wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to this work printed!

The beauty of this book is the way that Odentz captures both the comedy as well as the horror of the zombie apocalypse though realistic characters and their earnest responses. Driving a standard, navigating a town you've lived in all your life but never actually driven through yourself, assessing danger and threats and figuring out the basics of survival are just some of the obsticles the Tripp twins have to overcome. And then there's the poxers... Odentz takes the book from a light romp through Western Mass with the masterful way he builds suspense.

This book is a win for new or experienced readers alike. I'll be sending a copy to my pre-teen nephew and to his grandma and I expect both to find it engaging and entertaining.

I found myself with a "few" free minutes so I sat down to start reading Dead (A Lot) - 3 hours later I was still sitting there in the same spot reading - I could not put it down. This book is a great "Summer read" and a MUST if you are a fan of zombies and Sci Fi. I agree with a previous review that it will appeal to all age groups. Dead (A Lot) does not disappoint!

I read, a lot, and the true test of a book is when I want to read a sequel. The characters are the people you know, just down the street, and you can't help wanting to know what happens next. Zombies, kids who can deal, cool pets,danger and a great sense of humor, this is a book I highly recommend.

This feels like the Harry Potter of Zombie apocalypse books. Kids with outsized skills and courage overcome obstacles and adults while building their adhoc support network on the way. Unlike the unrelenting awful of a Walking Dead there are moments of pleasure in this book to carry you through.
