Nikki Hopeman’s first novel, Habeas Corpse, has been described by Michael Arnzen as “DEXTER meets Deadite”. Theo Walker isn’t your normal zombie, and Habeas Corpse isn’t your normal zombie novel. As a general rule, I hate sentient zombies. I like my zombies to be mindless and hungry. Theo, though, is as close to a normal guy as you can get. He goes to work as a forensic technician, comes home where he lives with his folks, and plays Call of Duty in zombie mode to relax. The only catch is that he’s been dead for twelve years. A series of gruesome murders piques his attention, and he must use a rather…unusual…psychic skill to solve them.
The book touches on stereotypes and prejudice, and the troubles that any minority has to deal with. Hopeman’s attention to detail of all things forensic make Theo’s adventures seem very real. She explores, without being heavy handed, what it means to live your life. There are explorations on what makes someone human, and what humanity is worth. And the book has some perfect gross outs. One scene in particular turned my stomach in ways that make me want to give the author a high five.
If you’re maxed out on zombies, check this one out. It’s reminiscent of Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lingqvist going for a playful romp with CSI. Go on and meet Theo. He’s very excited to meet you.
1. I was grossed out at one point. Congratulations, that is nearly impossible at this point.
2. I actually enjoyed a zombie-centric story.
It was a new take on two of my favorite things horror and procedural thrillers. Totally worth the night I didn't get enough sleep before work. If, like me, you are always looking for something new look no further; You have not read this story before.
Could NOT put it down. A-ma-ZING.
The references to my birthplace, PITTSBURGH, made me dreadfully homesick. My late husband and I met on the Pitt campus and spent the majority of our dating/engaged days there. Our first apartment was there. The first few years of our marriage. Brought back many happy memories.
This book was extremely well researched and written.
The goo and the gore were perfectly balanced with the humanity, the friendships, and in the end, the loyalty of our protagonist. I won't post any spoilers...but Theo just...ROCKS.
I will hope that the author gives us a sequel...or, say, FIVE!
Theo is a zombie who works as an assistant to the medical examiner who uses his special gift to help the ME determine the cause of death for the recent visitors to the coroner's lab. While working to solve a spate of murders, Theo rediscovers the last vestiges of his humanity as he fosters a blooming relationship with another zombie.
I loved how Hopeman used Theo to touch on many current social issues. It was a stroke of genius to think that Theo would be subject to the same discrimination experienced by many other ethnic groups in the United States.
I absolutely loved this book and can't wait for her next one.
This book was amazing. I was yelling out loud to Theo and caught up in the fantastically paced and perfectly plotted out lines, scenes, chapters, and overall story. Nikki Hopeman is talented.
Women in Horror Month, combined with two thumbs up from fellow authors I trust, made me decide to grab this one and give it a chance (even though it's a zombie novel). I am ultra-mega glad I did.
Thanks,Max. Thanks, Kristin. And thank you, Nikki for creating a wonderful piece of work.
