This book is a modern take on the Bard's classic tale, with an interesting twist in the circumstances. The narrator does a phenomenal job of bringing the characters to life. The story is very well done. My only complaint is that the flashes back to Perry can be depressing at times and seem a bit drawn out.
New eyes to the apocalypse. Completely surprised me by how deep and how reliable this story is. You can't change things in unthinkable levels, and you'll sure effect so many people in the process.
It was as I expected, save the zombie R was very verbose and repetitive. Other than that a fairly common zombie storyline, at least in these days of 'sympathetic' zombies.
not bad bad not particularly engaging story of zombie redemption. while Zombie material requires a good deal of disbelief suspension, this doesn't really even tey to map to the real world much. the author seems to be attempting to use the zombie situation as a metaphor for man's inhumanity to man with the always darkest before the dawn approach to pulling humanity back from the edge with...what else...love. Existentialist zombies meet nihilist humans.
Both the book and the movie are offbeat, funny, and full of memorable characters. I did not expect this take on the zombie apocalypse to be so great. Now I hope the author or other writers continue to write stories in this vein.
There was nothing wrong with the performance. I suppose that I could criticize the movie for not sticking closer to the book, but then the movie wouldn't have been nearly as... well... cute.
I enjoyed the movie (very cute, heartwarming), so I did not expect to enjoy the book (the surprise element being gone). I was wrong. Even though the two are nearly identical, the novel was still a fun listen. The narrator is excellent. The story is still endearing the second time around.
It was intriguing seeing the world through the eyes of the zombie rather than a survivor. Kenerly does a masterful job of narrating the gray world of a zombie without becoming monotone or boring- a tough task I'd think! I love R but I have to admit one of my favorites is M , a zombie who takes macho to the grave and beyond. Kenerly also does a great job of narrating the strong female characters without sounding too falsetto. This is a book I've come back to listen too more than once and I will probably listen again. Give it a shot because it's well worth the chance.
I like post apocalyptic novels, zombie novels, fantasy, memoirs about war, novels about hiking and paranormal romcoms
When zombies eat the brains of the living they get to live the memories of the person they ate. Well "R" eats the brain of Julie's boyfriend, Perry, and becomes completely infatuated with Julie and saves her. As he eats his left over's he learns more about Julie, Perry and begins to talk more, walk better and see things from a different perspective.
Awesome book. I really enjoyed it. Kevin Kenerly's performance was great.
