You would think a zombie would not be a very sympathetic character, particularly one with a heavy handed approach to dating, yet I found myself quite sympathetic toward Fred. It cannot be easy being a being a higher level zombie capable of rational thought, stuck in a shuffling decaying body. I liked the concept of there not really being a "good guy" in this book. Even the guy who tries to fight the zombies is not exactly good. Every person, alive or undead, is only looking out for his or her own interests.
I thought the writing was really clever, and found myself chuckling many times throughout the book. Each chapter is a story in and of itself, and the chapters are woven together for a truly brilliant overall story. I thought the chapters from Fred's point of view were the best, but I liked that the story was well rounded, showing the different aspects of the plot.
I found the book to be really entertaining overall, and quite witty. It is definitely not your everyday zombie book; I think it will appeal to zombie fanatics, as well as readers who enjoy snarky humor. Since I enjoy both zombies and snark, this book was perfect for me.
This book is from my personal library.
