Are you a member of the Walking Dead? Not sure? Well, do you suddenly crave brains? Do people you meet on the street run away screaming? Has your body started to rot? These are all good questions if you are unsure then please pick up your copy of "How To Be A Zombie" by Serena Valentino. It is a how to and what for guide for the rotting masses. There is everything from recipes for your brains to how to dress. Music playlists and movies for your entertainment. So go out and get your copy!
A frightening, darkly comedic look at people surviving a zombie onslaught, from award-winning comics sensation and novelist Bob Fingerman.
A global plague has nearly vanquished mankind; the citizenry of New York City is no exception. Eight million zombies. Shoulder to shoulder. Walking the streets, looking for their next meal of human flesh. The residents of an Upper East Side walkup have joined forces to keep themselves safe, the pageant of walking rot outside their windows a constant reminder of the their foreseeable fate. Trapped in the safety of their building, the tenants find themselves at each others' throats. When they spy a lone teenage girl who walks unharmed among the undead, impervious, their world opens up.
This is a dark, gritty story of 10 survivors of a zombie apocalypse. The survivors are slowly going mad and are close to starving to death when they see a figure walking amongst the undead. Will this figure be their salvation or their death? Well that's for you to find out. I'm on the fence about this book, some parts were great while others were a letdown. There really is no backstory on how it all began which would help the story drastically. I feel this book could have been better I wouldn't really recommend this book unless you are borrowing it from friend or library.
Teenage delinquent Angel Crawford lives with her redneck father in the swamps of southern Louisiana. She's a high school dropout, addicted to drugs and alcohol, and has a police record a mile long. But when she's made into a zombie after a car crash, her addictions disappear, except for her all-consuming need to stay "alive"...
After the first chapter I was hooked. I literally couldn't put it down and I read it in one sitting which was about 3 hrs. Not only does it have Zombies XD but there are coroners, police and even cadaver dogs! *giggles* cadaver dogs *snorts* zombies. I have to say this book is a fresh take on the Zombies we all know and love. I was surprised by the very small presence of blood and not a whole lot of gore but for this it worked. Oh, and there's some romance thrown in along with a serial killer, dun, dun, dun. So if anyone is looking for a different type of zombie book that still has the rotting corpses that we have come love fear then this book is for you, yes I'm talking to you if I could point right at you I would.
4 1/2 out of 5 rating
