Of course, this is not your typical zombie novel... In fact, there's nothing typical about this book at all! (The "pulp-free" author bio is the perfect example of that LOL.)
In short, it's more of a comical sci-fi mystery as the main character Rick tries to fulfill a last wish for his grandfather. Along the way, the quirky characters make you laugh out loud (the loony librarian was a riot!) while plot zigs and zags keep you guessing. Oh, and there's a bit of smart satire on modern life sprinkled in too.
In the end, the author neatly ties up all the pieces--and an unexpected twist brings it all full circle. Definitely a fun read!
It's a quiet beginning to a novel that leads us gently into a landscape that veers ever further from the norm, which doesn't seem to really bother anyone at the time. There are more government intrigues than a Ludlum novel, a body count to equal any Cohen brothers flick, alien ships, counterfeit baseball memorabilia, zombies on TV - and all without making the story seem overblown.
Deftly handled and slickly written, Mr. Rinnert's first novel charms. Recommended.
Bzzt, wrong. This... was... awesome. Within the first few pages you're hooked just because the author brings such a fresh voice to his narrator. If you don't believe this, download the Kindle sample to see for yourself.
But you know what? Save yourself some time. Skip the sample and just buy the damn book. The admission is cheap, but the ride is unpredictable, funny and oddly mesmerizing, mainly because of the oddly mesmerizing nutjobs that are sprinkled throughout the entire book.

I bought this book on a whim. I don't often purchase books by authors I don't know unless the premise of the story sounds amazing to me. Read morePublished on May 10, 2012 by Michael L.
Dan's ironic sense of humour really shows through in this book. I wasnt sure that it would be to my taste, but the laugh out loud moments come thick and fast. Read morePublished on April 30, 2012 by K Stander
