I wasn't sure if the writer was going to give us a novel for every state, because I saw that
Scott Kenemore has written another one - Zombie Illinois. Apparently, he's doing a trilogy.
Anyway, I recommend his books. They're intelligent, and have a dark humour that grows on you. I think Netflix should really have a look at this series. Kenemore is a good writer who doesn't resort to the usual zombie tropes of cliches. Give him a try - you won't be disappointed.
The main character, Peter, is not very lovable - in his zombie aspect or what we learn of his human existence. It's obvious he's not meant to be. This makes it all the more believable that someone tried to murder him.
The story bogged down in the middle for me as Peter marched around with his zombie friends. Peter was in college professor-zombie mode and analyzing everything. I would have preferred more action and less thinking.
I have to say, this is quite a unique novel. An "aware" zombie who holds conversations, but eats brains. He wanders with other zombies and tries so solve his own murder. Strange much? The dark humor is a refreshing change from other zombie books and worth the read.
So I launched into it, and absolutely, this is my favorite ZOMBIE book of all time. It's also a runner-up for the best book I have read in 2013. Kenemore has a gift for creating deceptively sympathetic anti-heroes, and while an entry in a "fluffy" genre, this book stands on its own merits. I also recently finished his follow-up, "Zombie, Illinois", and I'm ready to say Scott Kenemore is 2013's new Richard Matheson. More than anything, the deep flaws and abiding humor of the story's narrator reminded me of Matheson's "Stir of Echoes", one of my all-time favorites. Keep 'em coming, Scott!
Zombie, Ohio is different than any other zombie book or movie I have seen in that it centers around a zombie who has human qualities. Basically, the main character can talk and function as a human, but he is dead. He is a zombie. We follow the main zombie character around Ohio and encounter what he encounters and question what he questions, such as why he can still function like a human but be a zombie.
Zombie, Ohio is certainly interesting in its unique point of view. Unfortuantely, the book still fell flat for me. The ending left much to be desired (to say the least), and my burning questions were left unanswered where as the book's burning questions answered were the least of my concern.
Overall, "Zombie, Ohio" was better than average, but could have been so much more. I was interested through-out the book, and found this book to be so incredibly graphic that I actually gagged a few times in reading some of the zombie encounters. For this I give the book a thumbs up for being so darn descriptive. I haven't had a similar reaction even seeing zombie encounters in movies. On the other hand, the book left me very disappointed in the end, which is never a good thing.
The only reason I gave this book 2 stars is because the other aspects of the book are entertaining.
