The writing is smart and clever. It's more about the human experience than it is about zombies. What would you do if you were stuck with the biggest dick on the planet as the only human being you could interact with? Instead of sophomore and low brow humor, this book approaches this idea with surprising insight and personal conflict. It examines every aspect of human nature and how we would react in this most bizarre of situations. The ending in particular made me gasp and took me completely by surprise.
I loved the limited illustrations. Just enough to add flavor.
Highly recommend this one, whether you're a zombie fan or not. Because it's not about zombies... really.
I did laugh out loud at certain moments, the character of Richie was especially funny to me.
"Falling on your heads like a tragedy! Falling on your heads like a nude emotion," Richie screams. 'The Other Side of the Fence'
Richie likes to "amp up" the ghouls who surround them, yet are unable to reach and consume them.
The characters are fairly well drawn and, for the most part, quite distinctive. One of my favorite elements of the store is how introspective, at times, Jack--the main character-- is:
"He crosses the makeshift bridge with the practiced step of a tightrope walker, the same way he does every morning. Would it always be like this? Would his footing always be this sure? What if it wasn't? If he were to slip how would it feel? Would I be frightened? Would a blast of adrenaline give him the slow-motion clarity of falling to his doom? Or would I think "f*&@ing finally" as I fell to my death? Would he want the fall to kill him rather than the horde? Would I care at all?"
Introspection, or even human emotions such as fatigue, or post-apocalyptic stress, is something often lacking in Zombie or PA literature. Those touches made this book more real than similar stories. While you probably won't feel intense fear, or be shocked by twists and story turns, this is definitely a satisfying Zombie fan read and a very good first endeavor. I look forward to more books by the authors. Minor typos don't affect the read. Definitely worth .99c and an enjoyable way to spend a couple hours. Happy reading~*
By the time I was halfway through the book I was riveted by the flashback sequences and the character interaction. What was Richie's obsession with "Bikers"? How did Jack and Richie end up partnering against these hordes of the undead? I couldn't stop reading. At times I even felt sorry for Richie, loathsome as he is.
The almost PTSD quality of Keebler's obsession with creative carnage had me flashing back to my time in the military. I knew people like that and could almost imagine how their lives might turn out if we are ever so unfortunate as to face flesh-eating ghouls.
Although I still won't watch zombie movies (or television for that matter), I will be reading more zombie literature. I look forward to enjoying more entertaining fiction from the collaborative team of Morrissette and Nixon.
This one was good. If it was somewhat depressing, so what? It's a zombie book, maybe depressing fits perfectly. I loved it, and would like to see more full length complete novels, ending included, from this same author.
