It should have been the perfect vacation. A beautiful island without a soul in sight. Blue sea so clear I can see the reef. Palm trees swaying in the wind, and a girl with barely a scrap of clothing on.
There is only one problem. She is a zombie and she wants to eat me. That's right. My only companion is a creature with a hunger for human flesh. I should bash in her brains and toss her in the ocean, but I don't have a volleyball to talk to.
All I have is this diary and my own Zombie-Wilson.

I like the book. Its like a car wreck, you just can't look away and you just keep reading on. The author does draw comparison to Tom Hanks Castaway with several references in the book but instead of a stupid volleyball the main character has a "hot" Zombie girl to talk at. Well she starts off hot and then things go down hill from there. This is not a scary typical zombie book. Sure the zombie wants to eat human flesh, but the marooned castaway easily conteds with that. Actually this book was more fun and more intriguing than the Tom Hanks Movie.
Yes, most certainly better. Guy Williams does a phenominal job of personifying the main character in this book.
When the idiot protagonist decided to leave the island and took the bloody zombie with him! How dumb can you be?? Love it.
Brings the character to real life and really helps you see into his extreme stupidity!
Yes, but i was unable to do it all at once.
This book by Timothy W. Long is a laugh a minute, itll keep you guessing as to what form of brain damage the protagonist has. Lots of hilarious content and it just leaves you shaking your head in disbelief when you read some of the things that happen on this island. LOL, great book Mr. Long.
Yes, it is compelling and heart breaking.
The Zombie Girl, even though she says nothing you get a feeling that her real mind is still trapped inside.
Depth of character.
When he saved her from the shark.
This book is a serious mash-up of the movie Castaway and a Zombie book. It makes no bones about and actually owns the reality and plays into it brilliantly.
I loved this book.
The narrators descent into madness as he forms a deep emotional bond with his zombie companion is compelling and heartbreaking. I found myself hoping and praying that they would not be sundered from one another like Tom Hanks's character and "Wilson" were in Castaway.
Yes she is dead, yes she eats flesh, yes she has an "odor", and yes all manner of creature takes up residence on her as the weeks roll by. Their relationship is wrong. And he has to fight off other suitors and people that just do not understand.
But it's still a better love story than Twilight.
It is an excellent novel.
It was alot of fun to listen, and I thought it was extremely entertaining.
only downside was the length, would of wanted to listen more!
There are none like it !
He did great, I loved his voice, and narration.
Not so much, it was more fun than moving
This book is a lighter zombie story. It mimics the movie Castaway loosely, but adds in zombies. I found it well written and narrated nicely. The story is comical and a good listen I found well worth the credit.
