Publisher's Summary

Warning: Not fit for human consumption
This book contains foul language and fouler descriptions of life as a zombie. It will offend most anyone, so proceed with caution or not at all. And be forewarned: This is not a zombie book. This is a different sort of tale. It is a story about the unfortunate, about those who did not get away. It is a human story at its rotten heart. It is the reason we can't stop obsessing about these creatures, in whom we see all too much of ourselves.

Didn't work for me

I enjoyed Hugh Howey's Wool trilogy immensely and I thought this one would be a pretty good read but it just didn't do anything for me.

There is no real plot just the point of view of several 'zombies' told as short interludes in what seems a complete mish-mash of ideas. The narration on the whole is very good but the actual stories seem somewhat rushed & unfinished.... Disappointing

An excellent addition to my Zombie book collection

I love all things Zombie but until now I've never come across a novel told from the Zombies point of view. Okay you could argue that Warm Bodies and the tv prog I Zombie did but meh!

Told in short chapters, this is a novel which leaves nothing out and yes it is gory and it does leave you with a horrible taste in your mouth but for me that's what a zombies life would be like. Imagine being totally unable to die and feel your body rotting away this is what this book totally does it brings you right into a ZA. It's visceral, bleak and actually funny in places.

Some of the stories did make me cringe and I did have to put the book down now and again but that's what a horror story should make you do. It should make your imagination work over time and it did especially when I had the lights off.

I really enjoyed some of the back stories and I groaned at some of the bad choices made which resulted in the person becoming a zombie thinking that I wouldn't make that mistake! I'm actually sad I've finished it and I will re-listen to it again.

Now I will just have to look for more like this....

Well worth the money/credit..
