Publisher's Summary

Eight people escape zombie-infested New York. They have only one thing in common: the addict gene. The same genetic quirk that makes alcoholics and addicts susceptible to booze and drugs gives them a mysterious ability to evade the undead. But that's not enough to unite them. They're an unlikely crew: A Botoxed Upper East Sider; a drug dealer; a resentful daughter of addicts; a recovering AA guy; a Japanese ex-dope fiend; an addicted Ivy Leaguer; and a Mexican immigrant. They dodge zombies, toxic wastelands, drugged lunatics, their personal demons and sometimes each other, only to find themselves in a cult that takes A.A. to fundamentalist extremes. They have to make a choice, one they may not survive.

Brains and Deadheads

I received this audio book for free for an honest review, thank you to the Author.

I was a little worried about reading another Zombie book after being really disappointed with Feed!

Are you a recovering acoholic? An ex drug user? A victim of some sort of solvent abuse? Then these words will come as a surprise to you YOU ARE THE LUCKY ONES!!!! 

The reason for this, you carry the gene!! The gene that stops you from being smelt by the zombies "deadheads" that are taking over the world.

This was a very cleverly written book, it makes a good discussion point, in what would stop you being found by zombies (if they were real obviously) 

As well as 8 people trying to find their way through to Mexico, these poor guys can't get a break after a nuclear station becomes compromised (due to no one working them anymore) and the air turns toxic.

The characters are written really well and you hear the back stories of why and how they became addicts.

After finding a camp full of (ex) addicts on the way, the gang finally find a safe place.

The books ending was a little bit too saccharine sweet for me, but I also love a HAE, so to be honest it ended how it should have done.
