And so a cynic might argue that Stanley's death (more spectacular than anything he ever accomplished in life - drowning in milk in a freak accident) was not really much of a loss to the world. Ah, but his death ironically gave him a second chance at life. Literally. Project Second Chance "rescued" Stanley from the morgue and, well, brought him back to life. On live TV (to record ratings).
Suddenly an international phenomenon dubbed "The Amazing Mr. Corpse" by the press, Stanley finally has the fortune and fame he always craved. Except, you know, he's a semi-rotted, kinda smelly zombie. Nevertheless, determined to make the most of it Stanley rides the wave of talk show appearances, rap video cameos, beer commercials, product endorsements (t-shirts, candy, action figures), and personal appearances that come rocketing his way. A zombie living the high life.
You'd think at this point the weird factor couldn't get ratcheted up much further, but only if you've never read a Jeff Strand book. Because it does. A lot. Throw some religious fanatics, a kidnapping and ransom, superhero-esque crime fighting, black magic, the blood of virgins, cannibalism (though is it really cannibalism if one of the parties isn't technically human?), and a good old fashioned riot into the mix and now we're really rocking! In fact, it doesn't just rock, it's downright sinister. For pure, unadulterated, foul-mouthed, off-the-wall Strand at his horror-humor sarcastic best there is nothing that comes close to The Sinister Mr. Corpse.
The Sinister Mr. Corpse is an outstanding book. Strand puts a great deal of humor in his books. But this book is, by far, his funniest one. I was actually laughing out loud when I read it.It is very well written, has a fun plot that moves along quickly and never gets boring. The main character is very well developed. You will come to know him well as you read on. You will most likely be routing for him.
I want to tease you by telling something about the plot. I will not give anything away here.
Stanley Dabernath is the main character. He is 35 years old. He owns a weird video distribution company with Martin Vines, his best friend. One day, Stanley is killed in a freak road accident. His foot is crushed by a truck. As the truck turns over, the milk it is carrying spills out on to Stanley and he drowns to death. Later a man named Brant Richard, head of Project Second Chance, claims his body. Stanley is later brought back to life on a national TV show, hosted by Donald Mandigan. Stanley becomes a national sensation.and is named The Amazing Mr. Corpse. His is given a personal assistant named Veronica Luxen. Stanley also becomes a foul mouthed smart ass. The conversations between him and others are hilarious. I got a lot of hearty laughs out of this.
Starnd goes on to tell us all about Stanley's wild adventures in to stardom.Read more ›
He awakes on stage in a reanimation TV special vaguely reminiscent of Geraldo and Al Capone's vault. Stanley has been resurrected! From there,he is in for a wild ride!
Becoming America's newest celebrity, Stanley embarks on a whirlwind ride of reality shows and special appearances. It turns out that being the world's only real walking, talking and swearing zombie is quite profitable.
This is very much an hilarious, tongue in cheek commentary on modern day celebrity-ism. We love to build up our stars and then we love to tear them down. Behind the laughter, though, these observations are true and that is a little sad.
All in all, this book was extremely funny and I would recommend it to anyone who may be in need of some humor. No real scares, but lots and lots of laughs!
