Conway's unique spin and commentary on the undead makes this more than a how-to style guide, it's a fun read. I loved the brief historical and cultural account of zombie-lore included at the beginning of the book; from Egyptian mummies to the cult film Night of the Living Dead, the author clearly knows what she's talking about. She follows this up with a discussion of "zombie etiquette." But what made the book such a treat was the way in which it interacts with the reader. The personality quiz and list of "Zombie-Types" cleverly pulls the reader into the zombie apocalypse in which Conway says we're living (Myself, I'm a cross between a sensitive zombie and pop culture zombie). The book also gives something back to the reader: special flash deals and travel offers exclusive to the book. Once the reader sees the items and adventures they can save on, they'll need to have it on their bookcase.
So many of the accessories and fashions featured in the book were to die for (no pun intended). The Moonhoar Monster cut-off gloves and Zombie Plan charm bracelet transcends the zombie-niche, looking edgy and stylish, while The Walking Dead heels are a sexy send-up to the featured AMC show. The party ideas were perfect for Halloween, a zombie movie night, or a Walking Dead viewing party. In particular, the invitations and sending cards showcased unique handmade designs that cleverly incorporated the zombie theme, like one which read, "I love you for your brains."
One line in the book particularly struck me: "I truly believe...that most people simply do not show up for their lives." This book takes a cultural phenomenon and gives readers a way to not only indulge in the frightful fun of it all, but encourages them to take advantage of it: to add something fun, sexy, and maybe even a little scary into their lives; in short, how to enjoy being alive.
In the spirit of that freedom, why must we limit our love of zombie culture to the once-weekly enjoyment of a few TV shows? When the shows are gone, what will we do? After all, AMC can only extend "Walking Dead" one season at a time.
We have something less fleeting. We have the "DEAD SEXY" book!
More than a guide for "Walking Dead" fans, "DEAD SEXY" is a cultural outline for all that tingles my zombie senses. Moonhoar Monster cut-off gloves? Zombie etiquette? Bring it on, Zombie Apocalypse, I'm ready!
I'm ready with coupons for zombie gear.
I'm ready with zombie party games.
I'm ready with Sonoran Spice.
